Be Mine Pinkeep Finish





Here is be mine finished into a pinkeep. It was between this or a small cube. The pinkeep won out and I think it is a better fit for this design. I love the colors on this one. I tried to find some hearts for the backing fabric-but could not find any that was close enough to match in color to the front. So, I ended up with this pretty circle fabric. I am pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for the comments on my African lady. I haven't worked on her since the last update. Too busy working. Our newborn nursery had 34 babies the other morning and trying to keep 20 of them happy at night is no small feat! LOL I have also been n a quandary as to what I really want to stitch on (besides my African lady) and have been floundering around with that. I don't know what's wrong with me, too many projects and not enough time I guess. Hopefully, I will figure it out soon. I hope everyone has a great week and lots of beautiful stitching!

Sharon, the pinkeep looks great! This is such a cute little pattern.

It sounds like you have been kept more than a little busy at work. All those babies! Must have been the full moon. :-)

Hope you can find a pattern that strikes your fancy soon. I can understand that feeling. Sometimes I look through my stack of stash and just get overwhelmed and don't work on anything.

Your pinkeep has turned out super Sharon, love the pink fabric you chose :)

(we're pretty sure what we're having but have chosen not to tell our family and friends, and no names picked out yet, lots of ideas though :) )

The pinkeep is gorgeous! 34 babies? Wow! I miss those days of working in a maternity ward. My 26 yo daughter has just enrolled in Midwifery nursing.

Trying to keep ONE baby happy can be a handful. How on earth do you do it with 20?

Your pinkeep came out BEAUTIFULLY!!

Floundering? Oh my dear, we can't have you floundering. Possibly this mean you MUST go quickly to an LNS and restock your stash collection. lol

Your finishing is absolutely perfect and your lady is lovely -- I love the colors she is in.

47! OMG. Nothing to say but good luck with that.
