Stitches in Time Pink Friday Event!
Tiny stitches holding the hem of a linen napkin, stitches intertwined to make the most delicate lace, stitches crocheted by the smallest hook, stitches through canvas strengthened by wool yarn. It's these stitches created out of love that adorn a bedspread crocheted for a granddaughter's wedding, a sampler commemorating the birth of a child, a fine table cloth made to entertain the most important guests and family at Thanksgiving. Each of these stitches has survived the test of time and is so much more appreciated today as gifts from our past and treasures of our future.
Ya'll come join us at Make Mine Pink for our "Stitches in Time" Pink Friday event, September 26. You will find the most cherished items stitched with time and love. (It's my first Pink Friday, so please come on over and see our goodies!)
