Rolling Right Along...

Well, before I share my latest finish, let me thank all of you for your kind comments regarding my Peacock Pinkeep finish. I'm still amazed at how nice it turned out. Thank you for stopping by and for dancing a little jig with me!

Some of you asked about the chenille trim. It can be ordered online through Quilter's Station. I dyed the trim using some Rit Dye, tan color.

Tonight I'm dancing again. Crazy Challenge Finish #2 - Blackbird Designs Winter Delivery. This is Loose Feathers #5. I'm still debating whether I will frame this one or perhaps choose some other finish - it's the perfect size for a flat fold. I originally pulled this out of my stash because the color of the linen was calling my name. I must say that I've grown rather fond of the design. And the Blackbird! The pattern calls for beads to be added to the tree branches; I will pick them up next time I am at my LNS.

I think I'm going to tackle those Lizzie Kate seasonal scissor fobs next. See you again soon. Thanks for stopping by!

It's a beautiful stitch and a pinkeep is perfect for it.
