Yeh, I did it, I used the tutorials from The Twisted Stitcher and finished 2 pin keeps. The acorn finish I saw on a finished one from Hooked On Exchanges blog a few weeks ago and loved it. She had done a fantastic job, the only change I made to her finish was to add the nut stem, made it more challenging but I am happy with the finished project.
Tonight I will finish up on my BlackBird designs "Morning Star" project. These have been a few productive days for me. Love it!
Have a fantastic night.
