Pinkness!

With it becoming another pink weekend...not just Saturday....I wanted to show you some pink infused stitcheries I am happy to say that are finished! I have really made it a goal this year to finish all my unfinished projects. There are a lot! hahaha....I get so excited when I see new patterns, new fabric, new ideas....I can't wait to start, and then don't always finish because there is something new I JUST HAVE TO DO!


This pattern above was a free pattern from a cross stitch site on the web, sorry I don't remember which one....
This one below is from a cross stitch book from Joann's that I got years ago, every pattern is a different quilt. I just love it.



This is my favorite and took several months to finish. I took it with me to the hospital when my mom was there and got quite a bit done.

It is funny, our family is the type that when someone is in the hospital, everyone goes and camps out in the waiting room. When I gave birth to my kids, each time there was 25-30 people on the floor or around the waiting room...waiting! It was quite a celebration.


This pattern was for Easter and it was free http://mausimom.blogspot.com/ here. Just look under freebies!
Could there be any more pink? Of course...since time began...women have loved pink...flowers, lipstick, teeny weeny pink polka dot bikinis (uh..not me though), pink purses, pink cadillacs, little pink newborn babies, and pink Saturdays! Thank you Beverly for being our sweet pink hostess!\
Blessings,
Debbie

Oh I do love cross-stitch - not to do mind you, but to admire. Well done. My mom's side of the family does that too, day after day if need be. Kind of precious and a lost act in today's world. HPS (happy pink Saturday) xJ

I so envy anyone who can do counted cross stitch! I love to embroidery, but can't see the counted cross stitch well enough to do it justice. You do a great job!
