In the pink

I've been having a pink week and believe me when I say I'm not into this colour in a big way. How funny that this week has been about pink so let me tell you about it.

It started with this big quilt I'm making for DGD #1 who is into pink! It's been hard for me to work this one but I'm happy to do it because she will love it. I started this last Saturday. I need a break from it.

On Sunday, we had a day out, you know how you have to go out before cabin fever sets in? We picked up this dressing gown for DGD #3, we bought her one recently but she wants to live in it so this is the back up one so she has one to wear, one in the wash and then they'll be no tantrums.
Today I picked up a couple of project baskets, they just happened to be pink. Note the sewing machine cover!
I also got mail today, oh look, double pink fabrics.
I really need to tidy up the cutting area and put these pinks away.
I told you I'm not into pink but I do have this funky handbag. I won't show you the matching wallet and pouch.
At lunchtime, knock on the door, oh look a flower delivery from my beloved, and it's PINK


Resistance is futile, this week I'm in the pink, no use fighting it, it'll pass, ;)

I don't know, I think pink is your color!! Perhaps subtle hints in the past and now with a vengance! LOL I've got two boys and missed out on pink. :-( The closet thing to a pink quilt I've ever made was a Swanky State Fair that I posted a few back. I loved making it and working with that color...for something different and out of the norm for me. But it must be a gift for a friend because it matches nothing in my home! LOL

Stephanie said...

Well I think pink is a good thing! Lovely quilt. I just can't do purple.

Jackie said...

Good for you! I just love pink, it is a happy color. Maybe you will feel like a changed woman with all the new pink.

I bought a pair of pink spotted shoes yesterday....lol....my daughter told me that they look to young for me...ha! That's the main reason I got them.

I like your pinky faze, especially the double pink fabrics!

Nedra said...

I'm not a fan of pink either. But, my daughter is expecting #3 and if it's a girl you can bet I will be buying and working with a lot of pink also!

Andi said...

Embrace the pinky goodness.
As one who is almost always in the pink, believe me, it's a colour that can just make you feel good!
Your pink quilt is looking so beautiful!!!
Andi :-)

Always such beauty and joy over here. Everytime I visit it inspires me and makes me feel happy.

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, I love how your pink and green squares are coming together. That's going to be one very pretty quilt!

Janet said...

I'm not into pink either but its surprising how often I'm making a quilt in pink for someone. But I'm fond of pink and green (actually rose). Your pinks are inspirational.

Kaaren said...

What a riot!

And now you can truthfully say that you've had a look at the world through 'rose' colored glasses.

Julia said...

I'm not really a pink person either, but I seem to be using it more and more.
Your pink fabrics are beautiful...love the quilt.
Such a cute d/gown!
Julia ♥
