I started this a couple days ago because Tori let me know she might be home over the week-end. [and YES, she is going to be here later this evening!!]
For more ornaments, check out Christmas Ornament SAL Blog over the week-end. The SAL dates are 2/24-25.

Regarding my previous post:
Thank you for all the comments & e-mails re. my pinkeep. I started this kit last January (2006).
I was reminded that the linen will be stretched over cardboard & padding during the finishing & I might like the end result with 40-count. So, ok, I"ll take your word for it!! I have NOT stitched the other side, which has lovely motifs. And, no, I have not ever made a pinkeep in this style before.
My immediate plan was to either stitch it on the remaining 40-count linen ... over two thready for a pincushion -- OR -- to try this again over one thread for a pinkeep, using 32-count linen [over dye & dmc threads from my stash] While it will be a bit larger in size, the stitching will be manageable for these fossil eyes.
