Keeper of the Pins

I feel for you guys that are still getting snow.  I really wish I could get some down here just for a day or two.  We are having temps anywhere's between 75 and 89 and I hate it already.

I have finished Keeper of the Pins and Joanne at 123 was sweet to send me the correct WDW wool that I needed to finish it.  I loved doing every stitch in this beautiful design.  I really like the little strawberry pins that just set off the design.

I started the pinwheel from Threadwork Primitives yesterday and I've gotten a few stitches in it.  I'm stitching this with the required threads but on a mystery hand dyed 32ct linen that has a yellow/green cast to it.  I think the colors will go very nicely on it.

By the way my neighbor two doors down now has a new roof and we are still waiting.  I called the company and they said that our supplies should be delivered by the end of the month.  I didn't like how she said "should be".  

Enjoy your week,
Blessings Barbara

Your little strawberry piece is just lovely!! I like strawberry designs. Well, I actually would rather have my cold rain than temps in the 80's. So we really just need to get the air mixed up and we would all be happier! If only we had some kind of giant mixer!

That's adorable, love the berry pins. Can't help with the mystery linen color but I agree, it will look great with that design.
