Petunia Pig and the Pink Armada

Well, it's the last week of pink for the RSC, and I'm not sorry to see it go.  I've never been a huge fan of pink, though I'm not actively hostile to it.  Anymore.  I guess.
Though as my youngest daughter once said to me, "Pink is just light red with a lot of baggage."
Anyway, pink's last gasp gave me this little cutie:


Her name is Petunia.  She enjoys long walks through the barnyard and the occasional strawberry daiquiri.

And remember last week, when I was showing what little I'd managed to accomplish in the pinkish line?  There was one ship that I'd cut out, but not sewn together.  Since each month I've been making 3 or 4 wee boats and I'd already made three, I set aside the pieces to work on later.  Imagine my surprise when I found that I'd set them on a stack of other pink boats that I'd cut out and set aside to work on later. 
Well, one later is as good as another, so I went ahead and stitched up all of them.


The Pink Armada.  A friendly sort of invasion, I think...



Linking with So Scrappy for ScrappyHappy Saturday.  Come see all the rainbow fun!  (And help me wave goodbye to pink!)

I think it's hilarious that you forgot about cutting out the first set of ships and went on to later cut ANOTHER set of PINK ships. Perhaps, you actually like pink more that you thought!! LOL

Petunia is definitely a sweet little piggy. Love your pink armada! That would be quite a site on a deep blue sea.

Petunia is a charmer. I love her flowery body and personality! And who woulda thunk of a whole fleet of pink (cute ships!) from you.... You are going to ruin your non-pink reputation.

Oh dear. I hope Petunia doesn't meet and fall in love with that loser Bacon Boy. And your daughter is wise beyond her years (whatever they may be) to have made such a profound statement about pink.

You may not be a fan of pink but the fabrics you do have are making beautiful piggies and boats.

I love your Pink Armada - and not just because of the pink but because of the great backgrounds!

I must be turning into a pig!...I like long walks through the barnyard and an occasional strawberry daiquiri! (Now to just work on the cute part and I'll have a total transformation into Miss Piggy Petunia).
