Pink Saturday: Inaugural Post!

Hello Jaggie fans and Bear Thread Designs friends! We are doing something new, which was introduced to us by Veronica's daughter, Michelle. (She really has this computer blog thing going!)
When Michelle's husband first deployed, in 2006, she stumbled across the blog, called How Sweet the Sound,  and a weekly project called Pink Saturday. The idea is that bloggers, crafters, gardeners and whomever else wants to be a part of it, post something pink on their blog them all link back to How Sweet the Sound, and visits each other's page on Saturday (or throughout the week, depending on your time.)
They also have a weekly challenge for those who participate and want to meet new bloggers. Visit the blog of at least one participant that you've never visited before and then in the following Saturday's post, include that blog with a link in your post! What a great way to make new friends!! 
So this week we are participating in our very first Pink Saturday! Yeah! And to honor that, we are posting a photo collage of Michelle's roses, planted by her husband's grandmother many years ago. Now Michelle and her family live in that home and she is very excited to raise her little boy in the home where her husband grew up as well as nurture the rose bush that is a part of it. 
They are really pink, aren't they!?!
For those of us who are new to our blog, let me introduce myself and tell you a little bit about Bear Thread Designs.
My name is Jaggie and I am the adventuresome mascot of Bear Thread Designs, Inc. We are a family owned and operated business, that manuafactures the Applique Pressing Sheet and other products used in the quilting and craft industries.
As a family, we have decided not to use these weekly posts to sell, promote or otherwise diminish the artistic beauty behind Pink Saturday, so if you'd like to know more, please feel free to scroll through our blog. If you'd prefer only to "peruse the pinkness", we hope you enjoyed our pink flowers and hope to see you again next week!
Well, I'm off to make new friends and look at some pretty pink photos ...


  1. Those pink roses are scrumptious and how wonderful to be able to tend to while living in grandmother's house! Thank you for your visit and your nice comment. Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful and safe long weekend.

  4. Hello Jaggie, I enjoyed reading about your reason for joining Pink Saturday. Beverly, the hostess of Pink Saturday is a longtime friend of mine. I have had fun with Pink Saturday for over three years. Most of my blogging friends came from this blog party. The best way to gain friends is to visit the blogs that interest you. I have met the loveliest people and consider them dear friends.

    The pink flowers are beautiful and I love the history behind them.

    Happy Pink Saturday,
    xo, Jeanne
