Merry Christmas Pinkeep
by Stacy Nash
This was a limited edition kit offered By Stacy Nash late December 2012
It was my first try at using Walnut Crystals for aging a stitchery... and I just love the look of the vintage tinsel garland on the edge (included in kit).
Finished piece measures 9" x 7"
I hope that everyone in the Northeast has managed to stay safe and warm through this northeaster... and hopefully, it will be the last storm for a long time...
Until next time... stay healthy and keep on smiling!
