Pet Project Show #27-Happy 4th of July!

The 4th of July weekend is here! Many here in the U.S. have a 3 day weekend so I thought we should start our Pet Project Show a day early. If you're like me, we'll sneak peaks at our online media in between lawn parties and parades, and maybe a little stitching, too. 

While I was searching for fireworks pictures, I noticed how visually similar they are to neon lights. I had never put the two together before, but when I came across the following pictures from our trip last week, it was like the lights came on!

I'm sure it's a color attraction for me, too, but you get some of the same patterning with hand-dyed fabrics and batiks. I have always liked a radiating pattern more than random designs.

Pinterest and Etsy are full of gorgeous examples. This is from JenJeans Colorful Fabrics. Visit her Etsy shop to see more.

The first Saturday of each month is when I highlight some of the Doxie's and my favorite link ups. There's so many to pick from now. I changed the format of the link party a few weeks ago, and encouraged you to link up as many posts as you'd like, as long as you'd posted them in the past week. That's what I would want in a weekly party, and many of you have said you did, too. Favorites first, then link away. And may your weekend be memorable and safe. 

We picked multi-colored projects for the weekend celebration. We hope you enjoy them.

I invite you to add as many links as you've posted over the past week. Feel free to link them all if you'd like, and show off your latest Pet Projects. Don't be shy!


Thank you to each of you who link up with the Pet Project Show. It's a pleasure to see your work here!

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-Monday. 


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, July 6th 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.
