Pink Saturday

Joining Beverly and friends for Pink Saturday. It's been a while since I have posted for Pink Saturday, but with spring just around the corner, now is a perfect time.
I love spring because of all the beautiful flowers. My Magnolia tree is blooming...


The Japanese Plum trees are blooming also and smell so good!


My granny afghan that I made last year fits right in with spring and Dr.Suess's birthday...
Speaking of crochet, this is what I am currently working on.....
 This is the book where this pattern can be found.

I finally bought this book and can't wait to start making motifs..
Hope you have a great Pink Saturday!

I love the Japanese blossoms, but most of all I love your crochet! The blue one looks very time consuming, good luck at it! Happy Pink Saturday <3

What a fun post - you and I BOTH have spring on our brains - especially with today's nasty weather. LOVE your beautiful blossoms - our daffodils are the only ones out right now but they are gorgeous, and spring is a'comin :) My grandkids and I just can't wait. :) Happy Pink Saturday!

The afghans are exquisite. Love the touch of spring blooms.

I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

Thank you.
Have a beautiful PS weekend ~

I noticed today our magnolia has a touch of pink showing too. Your neck of the woods is probably two weeks ahead of us but normally the pink blooms don't happen until much later in March. You do beautiful work. Have a Happy Pink Saturday.

How fortunate you are that nature is letting you enjoy so much beauty early. We do not have much here yet. I love that crochet piece.

Love your crotcheting. I'm just getting started with crotcheting and really enjoying it.

Good morning Charlotte, We are budding here but no flowers yet. I can't wait. I will say we have had very little winter here in the NC Smoky Mountains. Unusual to say the least.

Love your afghan project and book. I know you will enjoy the new patterns.
Happy Sunday,
Jeanne xo
