Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.
Today for my pink I have this pretty little embroidery that I did over the summer and finally got it finished up.
I finished it using a vintage repo 30's print fabric.

A few closeups.

Some great new magazines to read this weekend. Hopefully! I've got a busy one planned so I hope to get to my new magazines.

I still enjoy the Country Sampler magazine even though I decorate in Cottage these days.

Cath Kidston sewing book, can't wait to get into this one.

Victoria Magazine I love! I have every issue they have ever published.

I bought this new magazine last week from Char at Someplace in Thyme. Love it Char!

Char also sent me this adorable card and pretty little tags. Love them Char, thank you so much!

Thank you so much for stopping by. It was so nice to visit with you!
Blessings, Shirl

I love the same magazines as you do, Shirl! But I hadn't heard of Char's magazine. Think I would like it, too?

Sweet embroidery work, my friend.

I still pray for both of your handsome boys each night!

Happy PS!

Big TX Hugs,

Hi Shirl!!

I have missed you! I am loving your cute stitching looks like it took a bit of time and I love the pretty frame!

This weekend looks like a good one to sit back and catch up on the magazines, it is cold and rainy here in the Midwest!

Have a super weekend!

Shirl, you are so special. I just have to say thank you for the compliments and I so happy you are enjoying the magazine. I think Catherine at Shabbylaneshops does a perfect job of putting it all together.
I love your latest project and esp the vintage hanger that you displayed it on. Over the top lovely my friend.
Happy Pink Saturday and enjoy your week ahead, Char

Well, shoot! I typed a comment and it disappeared! That's been happening to me a lot recently.
Okay, I love your embroidery and wondering how in the world you do all you do! This is a sweet one.
So glad you like the diet Dr. Pepper with lime. The lime really makes a difference.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Hi Shirl, your embroidery is so lovely. I love the fabric and the ribbons make the sweetest touch. I too am looking forward to the holiday magazines to come out. The Shabby Lane Shops Mag looks very inviting.
Happy Pink Saturday.
