Pink Saturday

Hello! I am so happy to be back celebrating a Pink Saturday with you! It is graciously hosted by Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. I seem to have been missing the past few months...just busy, busy, busy. Well, you know how it is! We've been having such cold winter weather here with s*n*o*w and it may only be January, but I am dreaming of spring. And what would be a perfect spring? A PINK spring, of course!

I love it when the trees start budding and blooming! They really are a sight to see!

One of our earliest flower bulbs are the hyacinth, and I LOVE their smell! They're just intoxicating!

Soon after, you can expect see the tulips....

Can't forget the delicate little lilies...

Well, that's what I'm dreaming of on this cold winter day. Hope you are having a fabulous Pink Saturday and see you next week! :)

Hugs to you all,

♥ Friday Flickr Inspiration: Hand-Tied Quilts ♥

Did I ever mention I love quilts? So you know I especially love handmade quilts. And if I have a preference, I love the old-fashioned traditional "vintage-style" hand-tied ones best. My great-grandmother used to make these quilts and my mother once made me one also that was hand-tied.

I got an Accuquilt fabric cutter for Christmas and have been anxious to try it out. I was going to go with the smaller GO! baby cutter, but found the regular-size cutter on sale for only $50 more (not the usual $200 more than the small one!) at Christmas...yes I was thrilled!! I really wanted it for applique pieces but I think I got bit by the quilt-bug! I finally started cutting my pieces out for a few patchwork placemats and they're so cute! (I can't draw a straight line, much less CUT a straight line, haha, so you know I need this cutter). I will have to share them soon. I had few fat quarters of shabby-chic material and decided it would be a good starter project for me. So that was the inspiration for this Friday's Flickr show. :)
