Happy National Pink Day!

I'm all for any celebration that turns a ho-hum regular day into a let's have a  little fun day.  

Here are just a few of  my favorite pink items that set on my sewing room table.

My pink clock radio, that also holds my phone which allows me to listen to books while I sew, my pink  magnetic pin holder (if you don't have one of these you must get one, even if it's not pink, it's made by Clover) my pink coaster, pink polkadot thread clippers, pink light, pink sewing owl, and my sewing machine even has a touch a pink on it. That's just the pink things on my table, don't even get me started on the pink things all over that room!  But the pink pretty much stops there, I don't think I have any pink in any other room in the house.

I bought a pair of pink cropped slacks this spring and I feel like a dental hygienist or med tech anytime I wear them, but I plan to wear them today.  I also think a pink strawberry milkshake is a must for this afternoon.  I hope you squeeze a little pink into your day today.

Thanks so much for leaving your comments and answering a question on my Diamond Traditions book tour giveaway post.  I enjoyed reading each one.  I found your answer as interesting as the question you chose to answer.

The question that I get asked most often is "what do you do with all your quilts?"  

We use them!

Here's Cooper enjoying a nap on A la Mode.

And Leap Year usually rests right here.

But some mornings, this greets me as I pass through the living room.

I promised to select and announce the winner this weekend.  Folks were asked to leave a comment by the end of day Friday, and frankly, with all the time zones all over the world I wanted to make sure everyone, regardless of where they lived, could leave a comment on their Friday. I think I'm good.

And the winning comment is #133, (randomly selected by the person who leaves that wadded up quilt in that red chair)

Sallie from Sallie's Sampler.

Sallie's comment was,
"I started quilting 20 years ago when I made my first queen-size sampler. Thanks for the giveaway!"

I hope you're ticked pink to be the winner Sallie!

Thanks again to everyone who entered the giveaway or stopped by just to look at the book and my quilt, and thanks to Monique Dillard for asking me to participate in the tour.  It's been all fun.


  1. I love all your touches of pink. I think I will have to go out and see if I can pick up a copy of Monique's book and that pink milkshake ;)

  2. congrat's to Sallie.. Loved seeing your pics

  3. It's pink day?!?! Who knew!?!?!
    I'll have to get my butt in gear and do some pink celebrating!

  4. Well, Happy Pink Day! Wishing you lots of pink in your day.

  5. I didn't know there was Pink Day -- and pink is my favorite color! I did a walk around my house on a cold winter day specifically looking for pink, well because pink makes me feel good. I discovered that some items coincidentally have pink -- the cottage cheese I buy has a pink label, the skim milk has a pink cap, the generic allergy medication, etc. How many items can you find around you that coincidentally have your favorite color?

  6. I have the same sewing machine you have and the same lamp. I choose the white lamp! Love your pink sewing things.

  7. how am I not surprised that you even knew it was national pink day????? love your pink cupcake in the header and that pink watermelon pin cushion , adorable!
    I love that red chair, I want one too!
    Have a great week

  8. Didn't know there is a National Pink Day! Happy Pink Day to everyone!

  9. Well, you were in the pink!! I missed it :(
    Congrats, Sallie, I'm very happy for you.You have a great prize!

  10. Okay... so how did I miss that it was national Pink Day!! I LOVE pink, it is my favorite color. AND it was also my birthday that day... a great way to celebrate both!
