Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Pink Gifts

Hi friends! I am unable to share my current stitching projects with you and it makes me crazy! ;) I have SIX gifts I am creating. tee hee! Need to get to the post office real quick!

I received some lovely pink fabrics all the way from the Netherlands from our friend Carolien. You can see I have the fabrics cut into the tumbler shapes already here.
Carolien was my inspiration to get going on this Epic Pink Charm Tumbler Quilt once again. Thank you Carolien!

Our friend Marlene also sent me some pink fabric.
Oh man! Check out the one with the Vespas! We used to have  a Vespa. :)  Thank you Marlene. I now need 71 more pink fabrics to reach the goal. ♥

Thinking of pink (and who doesn't? Quiet now Rosey ;), here is a sunrise from a few mornings ago.
Here is a sweet pewter poodle thimble we won on ebay.
That is everything I have to share with you today my friends. Thank you for stopping by. I hope the rest of your week is super!

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Ahahah, all those pinks! I wish I had pink fabric now just so I could send it to you. But even I can appreciate a pink sunrise, nyeh~ :b Isn't the old adage "red sky at morning, sailors take warning"? Did you get rain later in the day?

Such a cute thimble, I bet you fought hard for it on eBay! :D And Henry! He is too adorable. My cats sometimes sleep like that and it is almost impossible to not pick them up with a squeeeee~

I started a charm quilt in college, which I am not finished with (I changed froma a twin to a queen, that's a lot of collecting!). So I am happy to offer a few pink fabrics that I have.

Cute poodle thimble and such pretty pink fabrics you have been gifted for your quilt.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I don't seem to have any pink fabric in my rather meagre collection. A little bit of gingham but I expect you already have some of that already!
Cute thimble, you must have been so excited to win it.

Sarah in Stitches said...

Yay! More pink! :D
