Pink Saturday

Well, this is my first time to get my Pink Saturday post actually coordinated and up, except not everything I planned to post was photographed before the sun went down!!  So my honey figured out how to scan in on his computer and email me my painting pictures, which I am sharing with you today...only the pink ones, of course!!  Late morning, I will add in the new little toddler apron I made yesterday, with bunnies and carrots and daisies!!
 My girl had to have tea parties DAILY!  And would pour the cream until it the cup overflowed, then stirred it until most of it was on the tablecloth, and THEN drank a sip, and started over!!!  I loved that!

I won 2nd Place with this one at an Art Show in 2000.  Chloe, a that time had to wear pink every day!!! I sewed a LOT of pink then, and I still like to!

This was just too precious!  She was helping make her birthday frosting for #2!!!   (Notice the apron!)...and feeding the beater to the cat in  between her own licks!!  Stay tuned for the little pink apron (coming later today)that is for toddlers sizes 2 - 4!  O.K.  AFTER EDITING AND ACCIDENTALLY DELETING THEM TWICE!!!!  HERE ARE THE APRON PICS!  Did I mention that this fabric is a remnant from a dress I had made for Chloe about 15 years ago?  The fabric is a cotton woven, so the bunnies and carrots are subtly woven into the  fabric, not stamped on.  I love ball fringe, but still wanted the feminine little daisy "necklace"!
 I love how the back looks!  The apron pinafore is one I adapted from a 1970's Simplicity pattern by enlarging the armholes so that it could be a comfortable apron for any 2 - 4 year old.  Now on to list it on my etsy store!

  15. You're art is beautiful, the apron is adorable.

  16. Your paintings are lovely. What I find so appealing is that they capture a sense of movement - of something happening - a moment that we get to peek into. It's so sweet that they capture little moments with your children.
