*Pins & Tulips Pinkeep*

It's been a bit of a rough week.  Our doggie was sick this week with, believe it or not,
a kind of doggie vertigo.  She is much better now, but what a scare she gave us.
I have been keeping her by my side on the sofa while I stitch.   This is what I finally got finished up today.  It's a Blackbird Design.  I really like it.  Helps me think of Spring : )

On the back I used a creamy colored silk matka that I stained a bit and added a wool heart to hold pins.  I also trimmed it in stained ric rac.
