Blush & Bashful

Emma Lerch and Shelby from Steel Magnolias would have been friends.

Emma stitched her house in Shelby's two colors of blush and bashful. The house does appear to be hosed down in Pepto-Bismol.


Go here if you don't know what I'm talking about:


YouTube - Pink is my signature color


I promise I tried to add the video right here but I'm not as smart as I like to think I am.


Emma has been joy to stitch from start to finish. She got me through some very sad days the last few weeks. I still can't write about the loss of my friend Lisa but Emma was definitely a bright spot in days filled with the shadow of grief.

I love the pink and green. For some reason, A LOT of the houses we looked at in this area had pepto pink living rooms. With mauve carpet. Curiouser and curiouser...

I think it is a fantastic piece. It is one of my all-time favorites from the Scarlet Letter, and I had never seen it stitched up before. Congrats on the finish. (I also love your Mouline Rouge!)
