Sewing Bird Pinkeep finis x 2!

Sewing Bird Pinkeep - design by Country Stitches
32 count Purely Primitive by Silkweavers
Assorted over-dyed cotton floss

I finished up my two little Sewing Bird Pinkeeps over the long weekend. These are going to live with my niece and niece-in-law. They were intended to be Christmas presents but I got behind and didn't finish the stitching until the day after Christmas. After that I was in no hurry. :-)

Here is my progress on A Wish For You. I've almost finished the house. I thought for sure I was going to get this chart finished over the weekend but I ended up working on a quilt top. But I didn't get that finished either. But I got in lots of nice naps with the pugs and that was as good. :-)

Those pinkeeps are the cutest. It's fun to get gifts after the holidays too when you don't expect them, so no problem.

"A Wish for You" looks really pretty in that color palette. I'm sure you'll finish it pretty quickly. I always vote for a good nap myself!

I love your pinkeeps. Where did you get the oilcans?

I just received the Anniversaries of the Heart patterns this weekend and am looking foward to starting them, but I can't decide all on one piece or individually!

The only thing better than stitching or quilting is napping with the pugs...in my case the cats. Love your heart finishes and BBD house. Stay warm!!
