Hello! fellow stitching buddies.

The bird in this photo is a Red-Bellied Woodpecker for those who asked about it.

I am waiting for the glue to dry on my pinkeep.
I dont think pinkeeps are going to be my stitching forte,lol. I will try to post a pic later or tomorrow, if it comes out half way decent. I finished stitching The Bear and the Bees/ PS. So that is my first finish of the year and a pinkeep at that.
I have to go catch up on blogs.
Have a beautiful day.
P.S. Northern Illinois had a tornado touchdown, 25 mins. from me yesterday afternoon, leveled a apple orchard and half dozen houses, out in the country, so damage was limited. Everyone is o.k. Thank God!!
Yes!! in Januaury, we had some scary weather.
Happy Stitchin'

Finishing comes with practice so don't be afraid to try it again in the future!

Kim said...

Wow, hope you stay safe from Tornados! That's pretty scary. Good luck with the pinkeep! The first anything is always the worst, and the next will be easier/better/funner.

The weather was definitely scary here last night. Who would've thought there would be torrential rains, 65 degree weather, and tornado warnings in Illinois in January ?!?!?!

I wish you luck with your pinkeep. I heard about the tornados on the news. Glad to hear that you are safe.

Look forward to seeing your finished pinkeep Ranae. I did my first one before Christmas and I know that there are things I've learnt from it. Keep practising, after all what have your got to lose except a small bit of fabric, thread and some time. Glad you escaped the tornado. We had it pretty windy here in the UK last night and I was really gald when it blew over and calmed down.

Julie said...

Weather here in the UK is a bit horrid right now too, stay safe and take care.

Everytime i make up something i learn from it, i'm looking forward to seeing it

The tornado damage made it on to our news here in the Netherlands. Yikes. Glad you and yours were all okay!

Carla said...

Cna't wait to see your pinkeep...maybe the first one is not perfect but I'm sure it will still look very nice :)

Hello Ranae,

Thanks for visiting my blog. I visited your blog but couldn'r react earlier because my keyboard didn't work. I have a new one now.

I like your blog and the things you make!
Greetings, Carolien

The weather has been strange! That was pretty close. I hope the weather improves. Can't wait to see the pinkeep!
