Hi there! In June I finished Emmalee's pinkeep and included 7 little x's for her birthday age, as a secret message between she and I. Turns out Emmalee is so thrilled about our secret message that she shares it with everyone, cute:)
Here's a pinkeep I finished for dear niece Autumn, she'll be 9 this week. I stitched the same secret message for Autumn's pinkeep, nine little x's on the back (same color as fabby) to signify her ninth birthday and filled it with crushed walnut shells. The German verse translates to *I Love You*.
