pink

Pinks and pastels seem to be on my mind a lot these days. I don't know what it is, but since I made that pink/ yellow pouch the other day I want to include pink in every. single. project. 

Now, since my family does not really care for pinks or pastels, I'm taking it one step at a time. Also, who knows how long this phase of mine will last?


I suspect pouring through these (Mollie Makes Home magazine, Homespun Style, and Happy Home) has something to do with my newly found obsession. All three are full of amazingly beautiful pictures of wonderfully colorful and creative interiors. Eye candy on steroids, seriously. These books make me so ridiculously happy. And there's so much pink in each one of them :)

To start any big, pink project would totally be unreasonable right now as I have quite a few WIPs that need to get finished first. So, to scratch the itch a little bit, I finished up these needle books.


 Do you remember my patchwork pillow that became a pouch? Well, I had a little bit more of that heavily quilted patchwork left over, so I turned it into these little cuties.


One can never have too many needle books, right?

Thanks so much for reading. Hope you all have a very lovely day. Svetlana

Linking up to Finish it up Friday.

  5. Those needle books are so cute. I have seen the Mollie Makes magazine, but not the other two. Were they at your local bookstore?

  10. Sweet! I loved those other needle books you made with the elephant fabric too! I finished my first embroidery project a month ago and now I am hooked! I need to make myself a needlework but I was blown away by how expensive the nice felt is at the LQS. It was something like 8 bucks a piece. I will be there tomorrow so I'll just need to get a sheet and make one for myself. They really are necessary because I am always misplacing the needle package and leaving them lay around.

    Good luck to your family on the pink issue. Maybe you need to make another gift quilt for someone who likes pink? You are probably wishing the weather was more springlike, huh?
