Pink saturday

Just a little touch of pink! Hope y'all are all doing okay-it's been awhile it seems that I've posted for pink saturday. I made this little purse to put my phone in and a few dollars or debit card. That way I can quickly run in the store or even clip it on the store basket or larger purse.
It also clips on my bike which is a really good thing in case I need the phone while I'm out riding. The outside is made of felted wool and I lined it with a fun print. If you look closely, you'll see that I quilted it with pink thread!
Another project I finished this week is not at all pink. It's a pillowcase style dress appliqued with the letters for our high school football team. The little girl that'll wear this has a dad who's a coach. The little green balls on the letters are like pompoms!
Hope y'all have a great week ahead and looking forward to visiting as many of you as I can!! Happy Pink!

Always nice to have just a credit card and a bit of cash. Who wants to carry a purse in this heat! :-)

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

You'd better give me that pink bike or I'm gonna CRY!

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

Happy PiNk Saturday to you, Sue! The wool cell phone case is cute and so functional. I keep telling myself I need a holder to hang around my neck. :0)

The pillowcase dress is precious..I've always liked them and there's just so many adorable ways to adorn them.

Thanks so much for dropping by to visit with me. Come back anytime! I'm usually close by.

Love & Light,
Stephanie

Nice idea to have a special little purse for just cell phone, some ID and some money - especially if you can clip your keys to it! Brilliant!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Good Morning Sue, Thank you so much for your lovely comment and spending so much time getting to 'know' me:). I appreciated the reminder of the 'boy with love' post. Children certainly have a way of reminding us of what is important!!

I used to daycare and I know I got more accomplished during those busy days then I do know. Maybe it is young children that give us the energy to accomplish more.

That skirt is beautiful. Such a talent you are!
