Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. Thank you Beverly for hosting this fun event.

My pink today is my Stargazer Lily's that are in bloom now in my garden. Oh my what a scent when you walk out onto the porch. Heavenly!!!!!

Below is a white lily that has bloomed in my garden, it's about four foot tall and I don't know what type of Lily it is since I only purchase Stargazer's this must have been marked wrong. It's a very pretty lily and the scent is wonderful.

Our sunflowers reseeded from last year in the veggie garden and they are about 7 foot tall, just beautiful.

Another stargazer.

My mandevilla vine is doing great in the heat we have been having these past few weeks. It's been so hot you can't even set out on the porch. I don't remember ever being in heat like this in my life.

Below I have a little market tote, chair pin cushion and scissors fob that I made for my quilt guild swap.

I will make just about anything into a pincushion, LOL. This was a little picture frame lawn chair, it was hot pink, I painted it red to match the sewing room fabric then made the little pillow to use as the pincushion.

I cross stitched the little Southern Belle then made her into a little scissor fob for polka dot scissors.

A close up of the fabric, what a cute print this is!

Well that's it for another Pink Saturday, I've been so busy doing projects around the house, don't know where the summer went. Were getting ready to go on a little vacation then by the time we get home it will be time to go back to school. I hope you all have a wonderful week.

Hugs, Shirl
