Does pink mean happiness for you? It does for me—especially when it’s in these vibrant shades. But, who am I kidding? I think I love every single shade of pink! Really, every single one! I’m tickled pink (sorry, just had to say it) just thinking about the endless shades of pink.
Upon finishing Patience’s ensemble the other day, I noticed that our pink magnolia tree was still in bloom. It makes the prettiest backdrop (this was Patience last year) for Patience when she is dressed in pink. Unfortunately, the wind was blowing like mad; I didn’t dare put her down, but was able to take a few photos while keeping her safe.
The print I used for this dress is another “must buy right away” print. It reminded me of Liberty of London prints which I love, love, love! This particular fabric is in the pink colorway. (Gracie was wearing the purple colorway last week. And, Gracie will be wearing the blue colorway too, lucky Gracie.) Are you counting? I bought all three colorways!
The hot pink mohair/silk lace yarn in my stash went perfectly with this print, which was exciting since I don’t get to use it often.
Three different shades of pastel bullion stitched embroidered roses dance around the neckline of the sweater in a random pattern. I kept the pearl buttons the same value as the yarn so as not to compete with the embroidery.
Hand dyed silk ribbon in the perfect shade is used it for the crocheted beaded headband, waistline sash, and colorful bouquet. Light pink hand dyed cotton Lycra® tights complete this pink ensemble.
By the way, Patience picked this bouquet just for you! Isn’t she a sweetheart!
