Color Challenge

Natalie over at Cinderberry Stitches has issued a color challenge. Her plan is to share 5 items from her studio in 5 different colors over the next 5 days. Today she chose pink. Use the link above to pop over to see her wonderful photos. If you have never been to her blog you will so thoroughly enjoy it that I'm sure you will bookmark it for daily inspiration. She is so very talented.

I love pink. So it wasn't really a problem to find 5 items in pink to share with you today. Here goes.....
Of course, I have to start with fat quarters. That's a given for a quilter wouldn't you say? I chose the brights but I could have gone with the '30's reproductions also. Maybe even a mixture? Choosing fabric is soooo hard even if it's not for a quilt right now!

Here's a valentine table runner that I need to sandwich and quilt. I guess I don't need to stress too badly over it yet since I won't need it until next February. It's a free pattern from Monica's blog. She's the Happy Zombie and I also love her blog. She's such a talent and so generous to share her patterns. I used charm packs of the All You Need Is Love fabric to make this one.
I wish I could say that I made this doily but I would be a liar if I did. I bought it at an antique store in Texas. I would really love to learn how to make these myself. I do crochet but have not attempted this yet. Maybe one day!!
First, let me apologize for the bad picture. It's dreary here today and I just couldn't get a good photo of Chatty Cathy. I know this is dating myself. I will be fifty-something this month and can I just tell you that Chatty Cathy was one of my all-time favorite Christmas presents. I think I was either 7 or 8 when I got her for Christmas. I'll never forget it. Unfortunately, I don't have the original anymore. My mom gave me this little replica a couple of Christmas's ago. She even has the pull string in the back. So very cute!!
A cup of tea, anyone? This is a cup and saucer from my mom's china. I have the whole set and just love them. Aren't they pretty? They are so light and dainty.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting!

Hi Donna - I enjoyed your pink pictures and decided to try the challenge also. My pictures are much more mundane, but it was fun to look for pink objects. (Not my favorite color.)

I really like the pink table runner. I would love to come and have tea with you in that pretty china cup. God bless you today!

Love all your pink Donna... especially the runner! ;-)

I'd love it if you're interested in having it in the Jingle Jolly gallery. You don't have to do a thing, just let me know if it is yes.
