Truly finished!


Inspired by "Home is Where the Heart Is"
design by Bonnie Sullivan
Wools by Primitive Gatherings

After finishing "Patiently Waiting" , I realized that I had quite a bit of wool left from the kit from Primitive Gatherings. I have a side table in our family room that I like to put a smaller table mat on. So I set to create a final robin piece of the season.

A few posts ago, when I showed my finish of "A Patriot's Sampler", I had intended to share another finish. I photographed it and was adding it to my blog post when I discovered... my robins had no feet! Yikes! Luckily I was cheating on calling it a finish, as I hadn't backed my table mat yet. So I pulled out some pearl cotton and stitched on their feet. Then I went ahead and backed it right away.


Now it is truly finished! And I am enjoying it on the side table next to my usual stitching spot.

Be sure to take a peek and comment on my last post to be entered in my June giveaway. I'll be picking a winner on Sunday.

Patti - This piece is SO pretty. The details - including the feet, are perfect. A mother robin built her nest outside our dining room window this spring in my honeysuckle vine. It was fun to be able to look out the window right into the nest at the eggs then at the babies. We named the last 2 left in the nest Matthew & Daniel, after our youngest 2. Daniel was quite humorous when he was alone in the nest - he sat squawking for his parents - just like an 11 year old inside the house! ~Ann
