Baby Sunbonnet Sue Needlecase / Pincushion .... Pink Saturday

It's that time again..Pink Saturday. The day we've set aside for a fantastic pink ongoing tea party. We go looking at beautiful to house with stops in between for latte's, coffee and tea. Well, okay..a cookie as well and we're off again to see more pinks. This has been quite amazing to all the pretty things, the lovely ladies and our own sweet Beverly, our hostess with the mostess. So, without furthur adooooo, let's all skedaddle over to Beverly, and see what the pinks are today. And....many, many hugs and thank you's to Beverly for hosting us all.

For my pinks today, I offer little Sunbonnet Sue, dressed all in pinks and ribbons and flowers. Before she was sent to my lovely friend Jean..I added more lace and ribbons... and tiny ribbon roses. Sue was packeged in soft tissue and a pretty box..and sent on to her new home. Jean's daughter wrote me a sweet note, telling me how much her mom loved little Sue and how she loved the one I sent her.
I was so blessed for Jean to have seen little Sue and enjoyed her, for in less than a sweet friend had passed away.And I feel blessed to share little pink Sue's photo with you all...
for you see....little Sue has a purpose...(other than looking so darn cute..:) ). This and the rest in this series of Sues, are needlecases and scissor cases. I love working with Sues..whether it be embroidered pillowcases, napkins and tablecloths, appliqued Sues on aprons and lap quilts..or made and fitted into shadow boxes and or frames. I love little Sue enough, that I would love to build my business around her.
I will show more Sues in the following days...if you see one you like...or have an idea of different colors, I will be happy to make it. The prices will start @ $14.95. Use the little form logics form if you have an inquiry or comments..I would love to hear from you. I'm very proud of my little Sues..they're my ideas and my patterns.., and I would ask that you honor that, and give credit if you use my ideas. It's an honor for me to share, and I hope you like them. I've designed Sues for awhile and have finally decided to see if others like my ideas..:). It may take a bit to get my little business going..but I'll get there..:).
