I don't know how, but a whole week has flown right by already, and here it is, another Pink Saturday! Each and every week, Beverly, from How Sweet The Sound, hosts this event, so that each one of us can show and tell whatever we want, however we want, as long as it's PINK! Well.. within reason, of course! Please stop to see her, and a listing of all this week's participants, then visit as many as you can! I know the list is long, but it really is fun to see what pinks people come up with from week to week!
This week, progress on my afghan was stalled due to a shortage of specific colors I needed; so while I wait to make the trip for that, I thought I'd try a cute little crochet pattern I found at Caroline's blog, The Kansas Hooker! See how to make mice like these on her July 30th,'09 post. As I was making the first one in white, I was reminded of the story, "The Country Mouse and The City Mouse". I have a copy of this story in a Little Golden Book.. And look! It just happens to be PINK! Looking through the pages, I just LOVE the illustrations, by Richard Scarry!
Well, the names of the mice in the story are Melissa and Annie. When crocheting my OWN Country Mouse and City Mouse, I felt I wanted to give them my own names. So here are City Mouse, Camille, in her glittery silver, and Country Mouse, Carrie Leigh, in her denim blue! Both have pretty pink ears and pink button noses!
Here they are having tea, in my pink roses tea cups! Then, I served them some snickerdoodle cookies, which I just baked myself, during this past week.
Just slightly behind them is a pink african violet, which I have shown on Pink Saturday before. Do you remember my saying it would probably never flower again? My luck has changed, and Mother Nature must be smiling, as SOMEHOW, I got this plant to flower AGAIN!! Isn't it beautiful? I am SO-ooo proud of myself! My gosh, if this keeps up, I may try my hand at growing roses!
So, this is what I have for my 100th post.. Just a quick little show and tell this week...
Wait a minute! What was that?!.. My WHAT post?
Oh yes!.. Here it is!.. My 100th post! So just for fun, to celebrate my little bloggy milestone, I will give away a crochet mouse today! This is another mouse I made. She is just a little over 4" tall. We'll call her my little Suburban Mouse!.. And her name is Suri!
Now WHERE did I come up with THAT name?! Hmm.. Well, anyways, "cruising" right along here.. If you wouldn't mind a mouse in your house, and would like to take little Suri into your loving home, then a leave a comment here today, and I will enter your name into a drawing! I will leave this drawing open for the weekend only. You have till 11:59 Sunday night to get your comment in. On Monday morning I (or Dear Son) will draw a name, and the winner will be announced that same day. I will do my best to contact you, but you should check back here on Monday, or Tuesday at the latest. If I cannot make contact with the winner, a new winner will be chosen on Wednesday.
It's hard to believe I've actually done 100 posts, but I look forward to another 100 more! My sincere thanks to everyone who comes to visit me here. It's been a whole new world, and I've enjoyed meeting so many wonderful people! Thank you Caroline, for sharing your pattern! I had fun making these three little cuties, and I feel certain Dear Daughter is going to still want one! I was thinking of making one for a friend of hers too, so I'll be starting those soon!
Happy Pink Saturday and ((Hugs)) to all! Have a wonderful weekend!.. And one last thing, Please do remember to say a prayer for Amy, and her family. See the praying hands on my right side bar, and click on that for the latest news from Sherry's daughter, Heidi.
