~Happy Hearts Rejoice~

Greetings friends and fellow stitchers.....

First I'd like to thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment.... Your kind words are my inspiration whether as a comment on the blog, an email or a PM on Facebook....~ I thank you~

Earlier this year, I was drawn to the Little Sparrow Pinkeep Club that designer Tammy Black offers on her blog/Etsey Scattered Seeds.... There was something unique yet simple about her designs that caught my eye.... I recently stitched and finished the second kit and I have to say, it's a design I would stitch a second time.....

There was something I liked about the round shape of this Pinkeep.....

 

Or, perhaps it was the unique stitch that is sewn over the seam....

And, of course I had to use every single snippet of the leftover cotton backing fabric... Isn't this matching strawberry the cutest??

 

I think it makes a nice complimentary piece to the Pinkeep~

And notice the little sparrow charm?? Tammy included it in the kit... I put it to use as a dangle from the strawberry....

~Stitched using DMC threads; one strand over 2 on 32 count Platinum Belfast~

Tammys kits are moderately priced, offered every 3 months or so.... They are packaged beautifully with large print charts and easy to follow finishing instructions....

Time to sign off....hope your week is going well.... And you're finding time to stitch~

That is the cutest pinkeep and little strawberry! I love the little charm as well.

The decorative edging stitch around the pinkeep is wonderful.
