Pink Saturday, and Nearly Insane Block

This is block #8 from the Nearly Insane quilt.  It is 6 inches square and has the second-most number of pieces in it.  I don't even want to think about the block with the most number of pieces in it.   Gotta love those pink triangles.  I am using all reproduction fabric, and following the books's original coloring as much as possible.
Happy Pink Saturday, and be sure to visit Beverly at How sweet the sound to see who else is sharing pink.

Pink Saturday: Cosmic Pink!

Above is an image of part of the night sky taken by the Hubble telescope.  Look at the right hand side of the image.  Do you see the pink heart?  This is indeed the Heart Nebula!
According to Wikipedia: "The Heart Nebula, IC 1805, Sh2-190, lies some 7500 light years away from Earth and is located in the Perseus arm of the Galaxy in the constellation Cassiopeia. This is an emission nebula showing glowing gas and darker dust lanes. The nebula is formed by plasma of ionized hydrogen and free electrons."

Oh that takes the romance out of it.  Just enjoy the pink and the Heart.
Happy Pink Saturday, Viridian

Pink Saturday: Pink under your nose

I just received a postcard from China, as part of the Postcrossing project. Isn't that stamp so delicate and pretty?

 Sometimes, pink is right under your nose.  Look for it in your house, and in your life.
Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see other Pink Saturday participants.
