Pretty Pink Pinkeep

Hello everyone,
Sorry I missed last week's post. The weather here has remained hazy, hot and humid -  we had a few cooler nights... so I took advantage of that and spent my spare time in our kitchen.
Mostly I stitch in the evenings but this summer is proving to be difficult. We seem to have a bumper crop of insects this year - especially the black flies, mosquitoes, and biting no-see-ums. I did get the last stitches in my exchange piece today. I will get it assembled this week as it's almost time to mail out.  This is a secret exchange - so instead I'll share another finish.

Pinkeep from Sweet Songs of Spring © 2010 Blue Ribbon Designs, LLC
Fabric:28ct Bone Brittany
Threads: WDW ( DMC for Cording)
Stitch Count: 40 x 66, 2 over 2

I just love how this came out. Belinda has a new special design - you can read about it here

Our den renovation is coming along slowly -  but we are making progress...we found that we had to replace both windows... the second one had to be ordered - but it should come in by the end of this week.We also found some problems with the electrical work - luckily my Dad (retired contractor)  has been helping us. Everything was moved into our bedroom and my sewing / craft room for the next few weeks. Hopefully, I'll be able to navigate to get to my sewing machine and other supplies to do a bit more finishing this week.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. The insects are horrible here too! Ugh!

  3. Very pretty pinkeep! How nice that your dad can help you on the renovations. :) Hopefully you will get some more cool nights to do some stitching.

  4. It is sweltering hot up this way....I thought we moved NORTH. Hahaha. Cute finish. Stay cool.

    I hope your renovations go smoothly.
