Marking Sampler Pinkeep

I had a lot of fun designing this simple little pinkeep using letters I found on an old 1830s alphabet chart. I stitched it on linen and then stuffed it with wool for more of an authentic finish.

The backing fabric is a reproduction calico with teeny tiny blue flowers and is a fabric that I really love. I decided to antique the piece just a little for a nice vintage feel and am happy to say that I got the look that I was going for.....always a nice way to end up a project :)

Here's wishing everyone a happy weekend!!!
