Here it is, the first day of school holidays, and I have a finish!

I like to stitch on aida at night, generally sitting at my computer, under the downlight so I can sew and watch tv at the same time. Anyway, mostly these night time stitchings are small and freebies - as is this finish.
This is the January Pinkeep found on Maryse's blog - - see down to the right hand side there...... and was a relatively quick stitch over a couple of nights. I use up scaps of Aida that I've obtained from who knows where. I'm not certain that this will end up as a pinkeep - more likely to be the cover of a needlebook - that's yet to be decided.
Today I hope to get a serious start on the sashing for the chookie quilt - after all I really need it finished before next friday if I'm to display it for easter!

I can see that as a needlebook-very pretty.

The 'pinkeep' chart would make a lovely needlebook I think. I'm glad to see you did your own color choices on this piece, I was beginning to think I was the only one who "dared" to change the colors.
