Thank you all for your warm encouragements about finishing my Wisteria House~~ Before working on the big finish, I thought maybe I should warm up first and try finishing a small project…… I’ve always wanted to try making a pinkeep, so I went through my finished stitches and saw this little robin has been waiting since February!!!! Now it is way pass spring already so I thought I better wrap this one up!! Besides, it’s a perfect size for a pinkeep~~
I followed Vonna’s instructions and was pretty pleased with my very first attempt making a pinkeep~~ It’s actually easier then I thought!!! I absolutely love this design, and also found a perfect backing fabric for it in my stash~~
Pattern: Elizabeth's Designs "First Robin of Spring"
Thread: DMC cotton floss
Fabric: 28ct antique white evenweave fabric
Pinkeep Size: 3.25” x 3”
Finishing Date: 06-18-2009
I first thought the ribbon was a little bit wide for the pinkeep, but it wasn't too bad…… I also put gold and red pearlized pins around the whole thing~ I really love how this one turned out!!!
Sorry about the dark photos…… It was a very cloudy day when I took these photos…… Have a great week, everyone~~
