Pink Saturday

Hey girlies...hope your weekend is coming along nicely! Mine sure is :o)
Why the title you may ask. Pink Saturday is Beverly's party over at How Sweet the Sound!!! This is my first time participating in her party but I am planning on stayin' around :o)
However, I must start with apologizing to you, dearest Beverly. I know I promised to link up with something else than this, but I ended up not content with the pics I've made, so I decided to change plans and wait for the moment to make those silly photos. Ugh!! Does that ever happen to you?
But still let me just give you all a fabric sample of what is coming up.


So anyway, getting on to my actual Pinkish theme of today...You already have a hint, in my blog heather which I recently made on Picnik (with my own photos). Those of you who follow me from time to time already know that I fell in love with cross stitching and I attempt to make my own designs (simple ones though). So here is one of them:




This little design is planning on becoming a vintage-y purse, with lace applications and feminine chains as straps, I just have to find some nice chains to match it up with...

What about you, what is your newest crafty love, if you have one?
Happy Pink Saturday to all you lovelies, and don't forget to head on over to How Sweet The Sound to check out all the other creative posts.

Bisous,
Erika

  6. What pretty cross stitch designs Erika, I LOVE the simpleness of them, you are so talented, and your banner is really lovely. I love everything French also - my family lives in Southwest France, but we are actually English!

    Welcome to Pink Saturday - lots of fun always on this special day of the week.

    By the way, my graddaughter is named Jasmin - without the 'e' which everyone wants to add! I am happy to see it this way as the name of your 'shop'. Good luck in your dream to be a real shop owner someday - I'm certain you will be a success!

    Have a great weekend - stop by to visit me if you have time.
