My "Pink" Story

It was a year ago May 7, that my good friend, Shari, passed away from Breast Cancer. In October of 2008, I started stitching pink in her honor. I stitched pink that entire month. Since then I have stitched 1 pink item a month. I have also received some pink items from friends, which I very much appreciate. Here is my pink stitch for May.


It is "Bluebird" from Blackbird Designs. It is stitched on 32ct. Lambswool linen with Silk N'Colors Frosted Auburn. The buttons were from my mom's stash.

I thought I would share a current picture of my pink basket and all of the items that reside in it.




It is almost the weekend, YAY! Big weekend of stitching for me and I can't wait.

Thanks for visiting!
