Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to the “Tickled Pink” blog hop, hosted by our quilting friend Carla at “Quiltin’ in the Sticks”. (Thank you for hosting, Carla!)
Our challenge for the blog hop was to share something pink, something that tickles us, or any combination of the two. We hope that these jokes will tickle you!
“We have a friend who composes songs about sewing machines. He’s a Singer-songwriter.”
“We have a friend who claims that she holds a world record for quiltmaking. We suspect that her whole story is fabricated.”
We’d tell you another sewing joke, but we’re running out of material.
Ms P is pleased to proffer a plethora of pretty pink prints in our past projects. Presenting: PINK! (Just try to say that three times, fast. Sharon likes to make sentences with loads of alliteration. This tickles her!)
All of the patterns for our pretty in pink projects are available in Ms P’s Pattern Shop!
Susan is tickled pink to introduce her new quilting pal, Rosie, who has taken up residence in Susan’s quilting studio-in-progress. (You can see Rosie, standing near the windows.) We’re still getting acquainted with Rosie, and we’re positive that she will be a valued member of the Ms P team. Welcome Rosie!
And look what Rosie and Susan can do together now! (The fabric is pink-ish, and we’re tickled about it!)
Susan’s studio isn’t quite finished yet, but we promise to give you the “two-bit virtual tour” when the final touches are in place. It is going to be AWESOME, and we’re both “tickled pink” to have a space to enjoy.
With all of the excitement around here, we’ve been lax on finishing a new project to share for the hop this month. Sharon decided to make something PINK with our new foundation pieced tea cup pattern, and here’s a picture of her teacup block –
Sharon chose a tradtional cabbage rose print with lots of PINK, fabric had had been in her stash forever, for the focus of her block. (Doesn’t it remind you of an old-fashioned teacup, like Grandma used when she entertained special guests?) Sharon added a deep PINK accent fabric and a gray blender background to complete the block. She added some steam curls with black embroidery floss.
This block is going to become a pretty, feminine tea cozy, with additional touches of PINK and some very girly lace! Sharon is using the pattern that she used for her previous tea cozies. (See this post and this post to see the finished tea cozies and find the pattern link.) Here’s a photo of Sharon’s project, in progress:
Sharon promises that she has a plan for the other side of her tea cozy, and you’ll see the finished project soon.
