Happy Blog Birthday, Beverly. Thanks for reminding us to find the PINK that surrounds us… and for organizing us and introducing us to each other. It is wonderful to pause in the midst of our hurry-scurry lives and concentrate on finding the beauty of all things PINK in our daily lives. Stop in to say Thanks and Congrats!http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
And speaking of PINK, just look at all this pretty PINK! I bought stacks of Waverly fabric samples at Bussy’s Flea Market in San Antonio years ago just knowing that “someday” they would come in handy.
Aren’t they pretty? I guess they are from the 80’s…Well, that “someday “has come in the form of a special swap invitation from Mendy Mitrani , http://mendytexas.blogspot.com/ Mendy is one of the instructors at Paper Cowgirl Art Retreat coming up at the end of June. Check it out at http://www.papercowgirl.blogspot.com/ Mendy challenged us to create special flowers from vintage materials and ephemera. Twenty-six of us accepted the call to make pretty pansies to swap. I was all set to make flowers from paper and bits of lace.
But they looked too much like the project we are doing in the class I’m teaching that I just couldn’t get going…But then, as luck would have it, I found a Great project offered by Rebecca Sower in her Etsy shop.
Isn’t it pretty? I ordered the instructions and started pulling out piles of fabric…The project is pretty easy since her instructions are excellent! I started making them Friday night while watching the Celtics game and here they are so far…
I’ll be using velvet leaves and fluffing the loops up a bit, but they are turning out pretty good so far…and since this is such a special Saturday, I’ll be making an extra one for a Blog Birthday Giveaway. Leave a comment and I’ll announce the winner when we meet again next Pink Saturday. I’ll make sure to pick a good one with lots and lots of pink!!
I’ll be super busy this week…it’s time to get out in the garden to harvest Bluebonnet seeds. They are dry and starting to pop all over the yard. They actually “Pop”. You can hear them and if you’re near enough, they’ll hit your legs! I’ll be sending packets to those who entered that giveaway back in April. If you missed that post, leave me a comment requesting those seeds and I’ll share some with you too. Mother Nature has been so very kind with spring showers at just the right times so we have lots of seeds to share. And now, be sure to visit Beverly on this happy day…you know she was featured in Artful Blogging this month! Have a Pink week all week, every day from sunup to sundown…Happy Trails…Happy Pink Trails until we meet again.
