Pineapple Pinkeep

I can’t believe it’s almost the end of January!  This year I am focusing on finishing projects that have been 90% finished for a few years.  So far I’ve put the binding on three quilts and have prepped three other quilts for the longarm quilter.  In between finishing projects, I am doing smaller projects that can be finished in a few days.

This is the Pineapple Pinkeep from a pattern by Sue Spargo.  I saw this pattern years ago and always liked it, but never made it.  During one of my thrift store visits, I found this beautiful brass candle bass for 3!  When I saw the base, I knew it would be perfect for the Pineapple Pinkeep.

This project was a lot of fun to put together.  Picking out the wool and buttons to use was the best part.  I also spritzed the wool with some walnut crystal spray so it wouldn’t look too bright (especially on the leaves).  The pineapple is the perfect way to “welcome” in the New Year!

Keep it Thimble!

    This is very practical since the pineapple is a symbol of welcome. I really, really like this.
