July pinkeep ~ blueberries

I showed this stitching on my 'Celebrate' blog and today can reveal the finish. The fruit thread packs from Little House Needleworks are exactly the right size for pinkeeps so I will making all 12 to sit together in a basket. They will become part of my monthly pinkeeps now. I choose to make blueberries for July since this is the month we pick blueberries at a farm on the weekends.

For this pinkeep, I used a scrap of sage green and beige gingham for the back. The satin ribbon on the side is dark blue with both dark blue and light blue bows. I choose to combine blue and green glass head pins to reflect the colors in the stitching. This has turned out to be a very cheerful pinkeep!

I just love this! The wreath is so precious and the fabric you chose for the backside is the perfect choice. It really is a cheerful pinkeep. When I grow up, I want to be like you Heidi. :D

Heidi - I LOVE this pinkeep and think the LHN threadpacks will be perfect for your pinkeeps. It was fun to see your blueberry stitching because the last two days I've seen lots of fresh New Jersey blueberries :) I also enjoyed your Christmas in July tutorial both here and at CHL, AND I liked your questions on the list... thanks for doing them! Hugs, Joanne

As usual this is wondeful! I don't know how you manage so many wondeful projects at the same time. Why did I not inherit your planning abilities? :) Love you!
