Happy Pink Saturday 2nd Birthday

It has been nearly a month since I last posted and I would like to thank you all who visited my blog since then, probably wondering why I haven't announced the winner of the "share your thimbles" lucky draw. Well, things kept happening and I got cold and have been in bed for almost a week. I will draw later and will announce the winner soon.

I still do not feel very well but have recovered enough so that I do not want to stay in bed all day. You know, there is a tourist bus called "hop on and hop off", the bus stops at major tourist attractions and the bus tickets are good for a day and you can get on and get off the bus at any stop and as often as you like. I have been like a tourist on the bus. When I felt well enough, I hopped off the bed and do something, like check e-mails or watch TV, and got exhausted quickly and had to hop on to the bed again and slept for awhile, then hopped off the bed again, and got tired again and had to hop on to the bed, and slept for awhile and ...

Now, as the title of this blog post tells you, Pink Saturday is celebrating its 2nd birthday. Beverly of How Sweet The Sound has been hosting Pink Saturday every weekend for 2 years, that is 106 Saturdays, amazing, isn't it? You can find a list of the participants at Beverly's. Although I am not a regular participant, I have decided that I would join this weekend when I was received a notification of the big occasion. It was good that I have already prepared for the occasion considering.

Just before I made above thimble, I got an inspiration, something like double chained design. It turned out that I made a grave miscalculation (again) and I had to improvised to save it. Although this was not what I was originally intended to make, I am quite happy with the result.

And I am offering it for a give away. Please leave a comment on this particular post if you wish to enter the draw, before 4th of June, at 21:00 Japan time, which is 9 hours ahead of GMT(Greenwich Mean Time). I will announce the winner in my next Pink Saturday post on 5th of June, but I would like to notify the winner, too, so I would appreciate it if you could leave your comment in a way so that I can contact with you, like leaving a link to your blog, web page, or profile page which gives me an access to the e-mail address.

Wish you all a happy Pink Saturday!

  14. I hope you are feeling better, Chloe, being sick is never fun.

  15. Hello, Chloe Patrice...It sounds as if you got The Super Bug! Just the fact that you are posting tells us you are feeling better.

    Your new thimble is beautiful, please put my name in the hat. I have yet to attempt your kit but I still have 4 weeks to do so.

    I am a box collector and would be interested in making one, my head is spinning with ideas!

  16. Your thimbles are miniature works of art. Do you use each one or are they more for decoration?

  17. so beautifull! thank you for the giveaway!
