LHN Fruit Salad!




Well, my wee pinkeep collection is growing. These are from the Little House Needleworks Thread Pack series and I have a happy dance to share tonight: Cherries. I am in love with the way it turned out with the adorable cherry backing fabric and stitched on 32 ct. pale pink linen. The ribbon has the tiniest bit of black in it to match. I did change the red thread which came in the thread pack to a different CC as I wanted a deeper red. If anyone is interested I will look that name up.

Next up: Pear and Peaches, and I have the stitching done on those. After that, Pumpkins, of course, which I have been saving to do this season.

I have some other stitching to share and a lot of stash acquisition; hope I can put up another post this week. I'm working on my Fair Squares for Round 9 and enjoying the first few hints of autumn weather. I'm also debating joining the Me, Myself and I Round Robin. I have had visions of a Jane Austen neighborhood dancing in my head. But I am not sure if I want to embark on such a huge project! Anywho, it's late here. A great big THANK YOU for stopping by and leaving all of your wonderful and encouraging comments. Hope this finds you well, my friends!

The pinkeeps are all adorable! As for the MMIRR, I love your idea of a Jane Austen neighborhood. I joined, and I may never finish my neighborhood, but I'm sure going to start it! I hope you will too!

Hi...found your blog from another! OMG...the pinkeeps are gorgeous...I would love to start a biscornu collection like that!!

Sherry said...

I love your collection. I think you have tempted a number of us! Are the pinkeeps hard to make? I've never made one. Please do join the neighborhood. It will be such fun.
