Pink Saturday and a New Baby Girl

A wonderful day full of perfect pinkness! Introducing my new grandbaby, Avery Catherine who was born February 19. She weighed 8 pounds, 2.6 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches. Very healthy and very pink!!

And here she is with her big brother, both sleeping so sweetly.

Hope y'all all have as wonderful a pink day visiting with Beverly and all her pink bloggers!!  One of the blogs I love to read is Susie at 1st Floor Flat. She has wonderful blogging tips and fun mixed media inspiration!!

Pink Saturday

Good morning! Hopefully the sun will shine here today and chase some of the gloomy skies away!! It's still pretty cold down here but when I watch the tv I'm so grateful we don't have all the ice and snow storms. Praying for all of you who do to keep safe and warm.

For my Pink contribution this week I'm showing my new curtains in my studio. The fabric was given to me by my mom and she has no idea where it came from. It wasn't quite wide enough to fit so I added a pink border around the whole thing and hung it with tension rods. I really love it! 

The fabric sort of reminds me of the artist Anahata Katikin. Her work is just beautiful and is influenced by Asia. Check it out if you have time to drool!

I've been trying to organize my space while still sewing and doing other orders and also making Georgia a few things like this robe. A little bit at a time is not too overwhelming and maybe I'll be done one day!

We all had robes and she wanted one too of course! I used a couple of towels and made my own bias tape to finish the edges. I also put snaps on it so those little fingers could close it easily.  

Another blog I've been enjoying on the pink list is One Perfect Bite. Her recipes are awesome and doable (I guess that's a word?). Always makes me hungry though!!

I also need to get ready for the big game tomorrow night. I'm really hoping the Saints win but I've always loved the Colts too. I lost a brother and sister a couple of years ago about 5 months apart and he lived in Indianapolis and loved the Colts and she was a big Saints fan like all of us here in Louisiana. I can imagine their conversation right now-very colorful I'm sure!! Anyway, no matter who wins, I respect both teams and players and pray they all play safe but I have to add, Geaux Saints!!!!
Hope y'all all have a wonderful pink day and have some time to visit some of the pink list from Beverly

Busy fingers

Keeping busy at night (and sometimes during the day) knitting or crocheting. Sweater for Avery Catherine (to be born Feb. 19!) Pattern called "Bonbon" from mother and baby. I didn't add the embroidery. Washcloth for a Valentine gift, pattern from KrisKnits. Crocheted booties for a friend from hookcandy. I'm not a big fan of cold weather so I've been hunkering down when the weather is "frightful" (for me, at least) and staying where it's warm to do these. I'd like to make a few more valentines, a hat to match the sweater, and maybe some knitted booties from this pattern.

Bonus feature: My grandbabies are both two now! Time has surely flown as usual and I treasure every moment with them both. Can't wait for Avery to join the crew and maybe I'll get to see Will for Mardi Gras!
