A Prairie Schooler finish

The runaway pancake is back! Yes, that's right I'm back and have something to show for my long absence! As usual, life got in the way of blogging along with the fact that I am having some issues with my laptop. I need more memory and I am getting a hard time finding out what type of memory I need. I took it to the technician and he should come to my rescue hopefully by tomorrow. When my DH bought the computer he didn't think I will needed more than 512 mb but with my cross stitching patterns, photos etc I surely do need more memory. So as a result the laptop is very slow and sometimes unresponsive which is making me very, very frustrated.

Anyhow without much further ado, here is what I stitched in my long absence away from my blog. I love Prairie Schooler designs and hopefully I should be stitching more in the coming months. This design was taken from the Designer Series - Forget-Me-Nots.

A pinkeep was not my first choice for a finish but I couldn't seem to find the right fabric to match the design to make a pillow so I decided to use what I had in my stash at the time and make a pinkeep.

Design: Parrot in Cage
Designer: Prairie Schooler
(From Designer Series: Forget-Me-Nots)
Threads: DMC recommended
Fabric: Creame Evenweave
Trims: Matching ribbon, cording and backing fabric
Finish: Pinkeep

So until the pancake comes by again, here's wishing you happy stitching and thank you for stopping by.


  1. This piece is very pretty. You do wonderful work

  2. Hi Sandrajay! Thanks for visiting my blog--it is amazing how similar your Parrot finish is to Andrea's PIF for me. You did an amazing job on it--I'm sure you'll be so proud every time you see it displayed in your home :)
