HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!

This is my first time participating in "Pink Saturday." Please visit the blog How Sweet the Sound, where Pink Saturday originated. My sister Karen told me about it. Feel free to visit her blog too!

For my first Pink Saturday posting, I decided to post pink things that I have made. This is a handknit pink neckwarmer. It reminds me of a strawberry vanilla color. It is very soft and has a satin ribbon woven throughout. You can remove the ribbon and wear it as a cowl or tie it to keep your neck warm.



Watercolors: I recently started doing original watercolor ACEOs, each measuring 2.5" by 3.5". They look cute displayed on a tiny easel or in a frame with a large mat.

Pink Tulips:

Pink Sky:

This is a painting from a photo taken in Arizona of a pink catus:



Here are two of my needle-felted pieces:

Pink Bunny (Rouge Lapin)
"Demi" Pink Cupcake Bear

This is part of one of my fiber art quilts called Majestic Glory. This section has beads, quilting, French knots and of course a little pink:


Feel free to stop by my Etsy store to see more of my pieces. I hope you enjoy your Pink Saturday. This is my logo - somewhat French and of course - PINK!

Take care, Susan
