Pink Saturday and Happiness to Me!

I wanted to share with y'all the wonderful goodness I ordered from Etsy!! I bought a present for myself and I'm smile everytime I look at it!

This adorable pincushion is for my new workroom. It is absolutely perfect!! Sweet little fabric nestled in an aqua bowl.............

A bunch of foresty friends to share my space...........

All nestled in their new little home.............

I bought this fabulous goodness from an Etsy seller, Pinks and Needles. Appropriate to share for today with all my Pink gals from Beverly's, right? Hope to see y'all around!!

Cowgirls and their horses.

I finally finished the cowgirl dress for a little girl who won't wear dresses. Her mom let her choose her own fabric and at first I thought, hmmmmmm. I really like how it turned out, so sweet with the ruffle! (and she wore it!)

I also made her a backpack to match. Her mom said she loved that more for all her horses! Fun and sweet! I think I may make more of these for gifts.

Still haven't figured out the new blogger pictures and how to move them around.

First Mosaic

My first mosaic made with pictures from my niece. These were taken at the birthday party for Celie. Of course, I think they're precious!
I tried all morning to publish these from Big Huge Labs with no success. I finally saved it in IPhoto and pulled it from there. There's still so much I need to learn about the computer!!
p.s. Don't you wish as a mom that you could trade all your kids' hurts or heartaches!! One of those weeks!

Pink Saturday

Crochet Pincushion, originally uploaded by suesueb.
I crocheted this one night while tv was on. I had originally thought to submit it to SEWN blog pincushion challenge but realized that it wasn't sewn!! I can be a little dense sometimes! Anyway, hope y'all have a wonderful Pink Saturday and visit a few pink gals today! One of my pink links I love is Queen of Dreamsz. She has some wonderful image free artwork and great inspirations!!

Birthday sewing

I'm using the new format for blogger for posting and still figuring things out. Don't know why the pictures are different sizes.
The itty bitty dress (3T version) was made for my great niece's 4th birthday. She's in preschool now so I thought the fabric was appropriate.
I drew a cat on black and embroidered it to look like a chalkboard drawing. Really quick and fun!
Since I had some fabric remnants I also made my first pencil roll. Of course, not reading directions, I just looked at some pictures and measured the pencils. The pockets are too short or too big but the pencils fall out easily. I need to do that better.
This is the rolled up view. A button and hair elastic are the easiest options for little fingers to close.
 The party was so fun! The theme was fairies and the little girls had wings and beautiful headbands. The little boys had wands (bubbles) or they could be swords. There were butterflies everywhere in the garden and little fairies and animals for the kids to find. I'll have to post a picture of Georgia and Gabe on flickr or here when I get one. I forgot my camera so my niece took some pics for me. 
It's raining here again today which is okay since I have so much to do at home. Finishing another dress for someone and doing info books for our local woman's club. Really late this year with the inside, the outside is almost done thanks to my Cricut! Y'all have a good day!!
