Pink Saturday. Go visit her site for the list of pink participants and then go on a journey of PINK!
I really don't do a lot of pink but now that I'm attempting to do Pink Saturdays, I do notice a touch of pink here and there in my home.
This is a wool applique mat that I made several years ago. I love it so much I just can't sell it. It's been hanging in my dining room since it's creation.
The next pink thing that I noticed was in my kitchen. It's a vintage potholder that came from my mother-in-law. I don't know how old it is, but it's so cute that I never actually use it. It's always hanging off a magnetic hook on my fridge.
The potholder sheep gave me the recent design idea....
Oh, I wsh I had taken a better picture of this. I took the sheep from the potholder, tweaked it a bit and came up with this candle mat. I liked the little flower necklaces on them. This mat isn't finished yet, by the way. I need to put a few more finishing touches on it and attach the backing on it yet. Then it goes on Ebay.
There's a close up of the sheep. I get my ideas for designs from all sorts of things, whether it be the flowers growing outside, or a picture from someone's living room, or a flower on someone's dress . For the violet mat that I'm making now, the idea came from the flowers on my wallpaper border in my bedroom.
Other times, I have customers that make requests for certain things. Recently someone asked for a rose and someone else asked for geraniums and someone else has asked for watering cans and someone else wishes for roosters. I just need more time in the day to finish it all!
Happy Pink Saturday to everyone! Thank you for taking the time to visit.
