Pink Mess ~ Pink Saturday

They say one girl's trash is another girl's treasure. And that's exactly how I felt when I discovered this pile of treasure/(trash) in a little shop called "House of Treasures". A big bag of gorgeous ribbons, one BLOB of pink and one BLOB of white. What a tangled mess! But! It was only mere pennies. How could I not buy it? Every night as I sit and watch television I work on detangling it into an assemblance of something usable and easily unwindable. Slowly but surely I am getting there. Happy Pink Saturday everyone. :)


Have a great and fun day and click on over to Beverly's place at "How Sweet the Sound" for more pink goodness.

Eleanor, my weaving teacher says you can identify the mark of a fiber artist within if that oerson likes to untangle things.

Maybe you have a weaver inside of you, waiting to get out!

Sounds like a relaxing thing to do, and if it was a bargain, all the more! Just don't set it down if you have an overactive cat!

What a great find! It's pretty, it's a project, and it will be useful when you're done! Not to mention the good deal you got!

Happy Pink Saturday!

I love ribbon so much! You must have great patience to sit and untangle the mass of ribbon. Wonder what you will make when you are finished unravelling it all?!
