Hows this for PINK?

This is my Beautiful grandaughter Jaeda

Today is PINK Saturday posted by Beverly at
I must tell a funny story of my quilt store journeys,Yesterday my friend Amy and I decided to have "girl" day. We took off around 10 a.m headed to Sam's Club in Monroe La. which is about 80 miles from us.. crazy,, It was mainly for some crackers and some vitamins... it was way too hot for groceries!!! Of course I had to throw in the
Quilters Travel Companion,The first shop was in Rustan La. It was nice.They had some fabrics I HAD to have....
We get to Sam's do our biz.. then we head back,the second quilt shop was supposed to be 4.5 miles off this exit we got off.. we drove out a red clay road, then some sort of paved road.. I called the owner and asked if we were headed in the right direction, we were. Amy says" if we lose phone signal,we are headed back to highway"luckily we found the quilt shop.. It is Hannah's Quilts & Crafts 402 St. Peter Loop Rd.Choudrant La.71227 (318)251-0314. Beautiful shop it was. and they had EVERY piece of Oh Cherry Oh! by Moda. I was in Heaven.She does Long arm quilting and quite a few quilts with ribbons on them. for being way off the beaten path I was surprised.They also had a whole room full of 1930's reproductions.I will post a picture of my french braid table runner I am going to make for Amy for dealing with my excursion yesterday.. You would have to know my friend and I to see the giggles in it.This is my granddaughter in her pink onesy.

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

Proverbs 15:13

Thanks for visiting, Happy Pink Saturday to everyone,Amy

Pink granddaughters are the best and yours is simply pinky! Aren't we blessed with such beautiful grandbabies? I have an online friend in Ruston, LA. I bet she could've told you where that quilt shop is! It sounds like a little piece of quilting heaven.

Wonderful post for this l♥vely Pink Saturday. This is one morning of the week that I sit back, stroll from blog to blog and indulge myself surrounded by my favorite color.

I wish you a blessed weekend filled with sunshine and surrounded by those you l♥ve.

Babies are ALWAYS the best pink of all!

Your granddaughter is soooo adorable! I thought you were going to say that you were lost on a back country road! I'm glad you found your quilt store! Pink Hugs!
