I love Pink!!

My tribute to my friends who have
experienced breast cancer -
you are all such brave,

I also want to tell you about
these bloggers who inspire me...

Who couldn't be inspired by the beautiful
creations of Rebecca Sower?

She's a legend and her stunning work
appears in many Somerset magazines.

Have a look here
at her latest tutorial
a little lavender sachet to hang on a door.

Just what I had in mind as a
little Christmas present for friends -
thank you Rebecca!

One of the very first blogs I joined
as a follower was Magpies Nest
the home of Patty Szymkowicz.

She is the most inspiring blogger to follow
as there's always something interesting
and new in her world.
Thank you Patty for inspiring me
and offering your support and
friendship when I
started my blogging journey!

check it out
you won't be disappointed!

Another blog I always love to visit
belongs to Margaret in Switzerland
it is Alice and Camilla and her
latest post is about her QB5 stitchery
which has arrived home -
it's very inspiring also!

More exciting news for you:))

My friend Barbara has just
opened her own shop
I've done a few classes with her
and all of her work is simply exquiste!
Please visit Barbara's new shop
to see all her beautiful things.

She also has a giveaway here
until 6th November.

can any one point me in the
direction of a pattern for
a child's simple apron
I can make for my
little granddaughters??

Have a wonderful rest of the week
and thank you for visiting me
I so appreciate your comments!

Take care and

be kind to one another!

What a lovely collage Shane! My teenage daughter recently attended her first cake decorating course. She was the youngest member of the class. Her first request to put her newly acquired skills into action came just last week. A friend of mine asked her to make cupcakes for the 'Think Pink' girl's night in to raise funds for breast cancer. She spent a day in the kitchen baking and piping out roses, and various other flowers and swirls - all in pink of course! She also made a big 'Think Pink' cake which became a raffle prize. I believe they raised quite a lot of money. So pleased that her first creative 'assignment' was for such a worthy cause.

Shane, the collage of pink is lovely and significant for this special month.

I do not think that you need a pattern for a child's apron. You can "dress up" in your special way a rectangle of fabric (trimmed, embroidered, lace-trimmed, etc) and gather it on a wide gros-grain ribbon to suit the child's size.

Show us a photo when you are finished!

Hello, sweet Shane!
Had a quick moment
for some tea and a
few blog reads and
I'm so glad I popped
around : ) today.
Love your collage of
pink images....I
have one friend who
finished chemo this year,
one who started and
finished and another
who is in the middle.
Beastly disease! Love
the mousy you embroidered
for your granddaughter
and the apron is going
to be darling, I'm sure,
especially if the pattern
came from Melissa : )
Hope you are enjoying
a lovely spring day on
your side of the world.
Big hugs from mine!
xx Suzanne
