Pretty in Pink

I've been wanting to have a basket filled with pretty pink themed stitched "smalls" for awhile now so these two little pillows are the first additions to my basket.

I stitched these over the weekend - it was the perfect weekend for stitching. We had three days of solid rain, which was badly needed after the heat of the past month or so. On Saturday afternoon I met up with Kath and Clare for an enjoyable few hours of stitching and catching up, a perfect way to spend a dreary Saturday afternoon:)
