Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound.

I missed you all last week, it was a busy week for me and I was not feeling well. This week has been much better. I'm enjoying my summer break! I set on the porch and have coffee in the morning, I just love mornings outside, just always so peaceful! I hope you all had a great week and are enjoying this beautiful weather.

Today for my pink I have this pretty cross stitched bell pull. I got this at a thrift store and it's just perfect for my sewing room. It looks so sweet on the back of my door especially since I keep my sewing room door shut. No kitties or puppies in this room.

Some closups of the little stitching girls.

This week I went to a scrapbook party and made these pretty cards. A nice evening first we have dinner in a little cafe in town then we go to back room and do some crafting. It's always nice to get out and do some creating.

A few closeups.

Thank you so much for stopping by, it was so nice to visit with you. I'm looking forward to my visits with you all. Have a wonderful week.

Oh you talented little pinkie you! Love the cards and the cross stitch is so sweet. I was under the weather too. I missed PS and it was sad for me! :(
I have had some phamily situations that are very unpleasant. Prayer is so welcomed.
I always pray for your wonderful military men! God Bless each one of them!
Love and Hugs to you! Anne

So many pretty pinks here today!! I am glad to hear that you are feeling better!!
I was in the ER yesterday. Turned out that the pain I had for 2 days was caused by a Urinary Tract infection.

Hi Shirl! What a great thrift find. That little ditty was designed by the talented designer Alma Lynne. I LOVE HER WORK and she remains my favorite cross stitch designer of all time!

Happy Pink Saturday. Loved seeing your beautiful things!

Fabulous! Both the bell pull and all your card projects. Looks like you had a wonderful time.

Happy Pink Saturday and a hug from the UK!

A beautiful cross stitch. That craft is so time consuming, I admire anyone who does that. Your cards are lovely too.
Happy Pink Sat.

You did a very nice job on your cards even if you were not feeling too good. I think you made the right choice on the bell pull.

Hi Shirl!
I'm so glad you are feeling better!
What a fun pink saturday post and I love all your pics!
What a fabulous thrift store find!
I've found lots of cross stitch at my local Salvation Army stores but never an original Alma Lynne or anything as grand as that bellpull!!
I can imagine you couldnt believe your eyes when you saw it!
She was always a thrill to visit at the trade shows and is as sweet as her designs :-)
Hugs and Smiles,

Happy Pink Saturday, Shirl. I am so glad you are feeling better. Enjoy your summer. I love quiet mornings, too.

Your bell pull is so sweet and so pretty, and your cards are fantastic. The one with the pink butterfly is my favorite.

Hi Shirl,
I am so glad you are feeling better and enjoying some relaxing time on the porch. I too love sitting out in the morning when it is still cooler and so peaceful.

Love the Alma Lynne design. You found such a treasure and it looks amazing on the door.

The dinner and scapbook party sounds like so much fun. The cards you made are darling.
