I Like Thurs #104, FNwF, and RSC Pink!

 Oh I love the color pink! So many shades and almost all are lovely to see. That would include the color magenta, Pantone's Color of the Year! So let's begin with a couple of likes from this past week. I have a few and there are plenty of others to admire if you follow Not Afraid of Color's link HERE.

The last day of January gave the pond's fountain
a lovely ice crown at the base

Groundhog's Day brought another beautiful, but chilly, sunrise

I loved how the rising sun cast
a gorgeous red glow on these tree limbs!

Horribly cold morning for a walk the next day.
The weather when we got back.
Check out that Feels Like! YIKES!

That brings me to Friday Night with Friends. My cyber sewing buddies and I stitch our 1st Fridays away and then share with all at Cheryll's Linky Party HERE. So I started preparing fabric for Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month while I was at it. I'll be sharing over at Angela's SoScrappy Linky Party HERE too.
Cut enough for four PINK pineapples

I'll also need pineapple backgrounds

I plan on making this free pattern of Twisting Heart Valentine by Connie Kresin. I happen to already have the right size Twister tool so I went ahead and cut the pink squares. I still need to check the stash for a suitable background fabric.

And, looking forward, I pulled these greens and have already traced the embroidery pattern on a background fabric.  I love Kathy Schmitz projects and this project will keep me busy while Mom is at P/T.

I hope Angela picks GREEN for next month!

Have a good weekend. We'll try to stay anchored at home  as we are looking at much wind today. Thankfully warmer temperatures are on the way even if only temporarily, but I think that groundhog may have had it right -- 6 more weeks of winter!


  1. The twister heart looks fun - I have not tried that technique yet.

  2. Cutting for RSC projects is a great way to spend part of your FNWF time! Happy sewing!

  3. I LoVe the ice fountain... so pretty from afar...
    Good luck with PINK this month for RSC...& thanks for stopping in for FNwF too...xox

  4. Brrr! It seems like the whole country has been having a cold winter! Pretty pinks to sew with - I'll enjoy seeing your pineapples and the Twisting Heart project, too.

  5. I always love a pretty sunrise/set. Nice work with your pinks. xx

  6. This cold has been off the charts the last couple of days. Your projects looks like you are having lots of fun this year. Have a wonderful day.

  7. It has warmed up considerably today here…we are above freezing and things are melting. Looks like you are well on your way to sewing your new projects. Gail at the Cozy Quilter

  8. What lovely photos, Susie. The ice crown at the bottom of the fountain looks amazing . I can not wait to see you pink pineapples. I am in love with this project. And the Twisting Heart is going to be fabulous. I can not wait to see yours. Have a wonderful week. Stay warm and cozy.

  9. I missed your post last week, so my comment is late. Those are beautiful photos of the fountain and the trees. Love your pinks, and that Twisting Heart pattern looks fantastic. Your greens are so pretty!
