Pink Saturday - Prizes and Embroidery

Happy Pink Saturday
visit our hostess Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound for 
more lovely pink posts.

How are you today,
thank you for coming over for a visit.
  Just before Christmas I entered two 
give-a-ways, and won these wonderful gifts

This darling bracelet.
Thank you to 
and Maria got it to me before Christmas. 

Thank you Maria for the great gift.
When I saw this beautiful vintage bowl over at
Vonlipi's Favorites I just had to enter.

I won, how cool is that
also in the gift box
a jar of homemade jelly, a vintage can opener
a green tea pot, Heloises kitchen tips and cute Christmas napkins.
Thank you Vonlipi for the wonderful gifts
While visiting my friend Lyn we played with her new embroidery machine
here is what we added to my hot pink hooded sweatshirt.
It was so much fun watching this machine do its work
it even threads the needle, cuts the thread, and flips the thread out of the way.  LOL.
Here you can see the back of my sweatshirt 
and the hummie on the front right.
I hope you all are doing well, this first week of 2011

I want to invite you to join me in a party
I was thinking since we all seem to get the organizational bug this 
time of year, that I would host
a Creative Organizational Link Party.
  I will be posting on Monday,
I hope you will come and share what your doing
to get things in order this new year.

God Bless everyone.

Aren't you the lucky one this week! Great wins. I love the designs on your sweatshirt. Would look so good on green. I can stop by Monday with a picture of my calendar. That's what I've organized - my time.

What a beautiful share. Such a treasure is that darling Christmas bracelet. I love each little charm. Just precious.

And that bowl. Oh my is that ever a treasure. I love the color blue edging and the little farmers are just darling. Home made jelly too? What a treasure that is.

You did an awesome job on this jacket. Your friend must have one heck of a machine. Love the humming bird. It is SO darling. Dragonfly too. Great job, beautiful pink color jacket.

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
