Giveaway Winner and Pet Project Show #18

Congratulations to Sandra from 
Musings of a Menopausal Melon! 

Sandra was the 5th link up for month, and the 

winner of the Variable Star Within a Star pillow.
I'll be shipping this package due north.

Here are a few of the Doxie Girls and my favorite 

link-ups for the month of April. I'm a nut for color
so I'm always drawn to brights.

Tanya linked her zebra quilt from 

Tanya Quilts in CO. It's vibrant!

Debra at Quiltingartist linked this cat quilt. It's
simple, bright, and effectively fun.

Maartje Quilt in Amsterdam linked this 
multi-colored FMQ bag. I'm transported
back to high school, and doodling on notebooks.

Beth at Cooking Up Quilts linked her Bee quilt.
What a lovely composition, and perfect for spring!
I think I need to join a Bee after seeing it.

Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict worked
together this beauty, and it surely suits its name,
Stained Glass.

Cassandra at The Not So Dramatic Life linked
her Marsala Mini, and wowed me. It's
just gorgeous.

Thank you all for sharing, and keep them
coming. I love seeing your link-ups, and getting
to know so many talented sewists.

Come on, Doxie Girls.
It's Saturday, and time for the weekly 

Pink Doxies 

Pet Project Show. 

Pet Project Show

Add your link here every Saturday. 


Do we have to have rules? 

No worries! It's EASY.

1. Use the blue 'Add Your Link' button (below left)
to upload a picture of something you've created 
in the past week. Any kind of handiwork--
share it now! It can be a work in progress, 
finally finished, or even your fab new fabric. 
Whatever it is that inspired you to create this 
week, we'd like to see it here. 

2. Please link to a specific post, and not just your
blog address. It makes it easy for anyone following 
your link to find the project.

3. Provide a backlink to Pink Doxies with a link in
your post, or pick up our Pet Project Show
button in the sidebar. Copy the code, then 
create a Pet Show widget with 'Add by HTML' 
on your Layout page.

1. You can link up to your Instagram. 
Click on the Instagram icon at the bottom 
of the link up screen. The URL of your Instagram 
feed will be your link. 
Please hashtag #pinkdoxiespetproject

Either way you link up, remember it's a party
here, so schmooze with the crowd! Visit others 
who've linked up. Leave a comment so they 
know what you like about their work. 

Don't miss a post! 
Follow me on Bloglovin' or by email. 

The Linky Party starts now, and runs until
Monday, April 27th at midnight. 
Spread the word, and tell all your stitchy friends.
*The first Saturday party of each month will
feature several of the Doxies and my
favorite link ups.
By linking up, you are giving permission for me
to post your picture with a link back to your 
blog or Instagram account.

It's always enlightening to hear your thoughts or suggestions. I try to respond in a timely manner, but admit life is very full here! I will return comments online if it's of general interest, but offline if a personal response is more appropriate. Give me a shout with anything urgent at, and I'll try to get right back with you. While I believe in free speech, spamming will not be tolerated, and as in all our interactions, speak kindly.

If you want to be certain of a personal reply, leave your email or email me privately. Many people are not even aware when they have become a no-reply blogger. Yes, I know it's frustrating for us all.
