Pink Saturday 8/15/2009

Happy pink Saturday, hope you are all having a good weekend.
I feel like I'm still recovering from Wendy and Tyler's visit but I have been busy playing catch up on quilts so I think that's what it is.
Don't forget to go over here to Beverly's to see the rest of the pink blog ladies. I'm sure there is some cute pink stuff out there that you don't want to miss out on seeing.
This week I received two gifts. This first one is from a customer/friend. She makes some of the cutest quilts too. Isn't this too sweet and it goes great in my pink room. Look at all those perfect little stitches, thank you Fran... I love it.

Look at these yummy little cupcakes. My friend Helen gave me these little scrapbook cupcakes, cupcake earrings and a ME journal which I didn't get a picture of.
The cutest little earrings.... Thank you Helen... you are a sweetie...
In between catching up on quilting, no not really... at night after quilting I have been teaching myself how to make gum paste roses... here is what I have done so far. They are so fun to make and like quilting they are addicting.
This is the first one I made.
A few other flowers I have been playing around with also.

Don't ya just love pink roses? Thank you for stopping by and don't forget to go visit the other pink blogs. Have a blessed day.
