Super Saturday!

Happy 1st Pink Saturday!
What a wonderful week this has been.
The weather has been so beautiful here in Arizona, the air has been warm and the sky so blue . This is an environment that truly fills the heart with inspiration!

This week, I participated in a large Girl Scout event, the cookie kick-off.
Yes, those remarkable girl scouts will be parading through streets searching for all the cookie lovers in their neighborhoods!
Earlier in the week I created the t-shirt bag as the sample so each girl could see what they were to make.
There were nine sewing machines set up and they were running non stop for over 2 hours! For most of the girls this was their first experience with a sewing machine.
This event was so much fun. It's thrilling to be with the girls and feel the appreciation they give you.

Emma one of the girl scouts at this event brought her latest creation to share.

"The Lacy Jacket"
Emma is featured here in the photographs,wearing the lacy jacket she constructed herself from some lovely lace fabric. She has made the pattern and made one for herself, and an identical one for her grandmother in black. She assures me it is that it is not difficult to make and all you need is a piece of fabric and a few measurements. Emma used a spool to cut the arm holes and she measured the length of her arms and used an old sweater as a pattern to cut out her sleeves.
The finished jacket looks so classic and stunning and it can be styled into several different looks.

I want to thank Emma for letting me share her beautiful creation for this Pink Saturday post. For more luscious pink, please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!
Thank you for visiting.......
"Be Happy" and create something Pink!
