SUNBONNET SUE FOR VINTAGE THINGY THURSDAY

 Please visit Suzanne at Colorado Lady here. She is hosting a special Vintage Thingy Thursday. In honor of our sweet friend CC who recently passed away I am posting some internet images of Sun Bonnet Sue. I am in the process of getting together with a dear friend of mine, Laura, and see if she can help me create a wonderful memory of CC. Laura, like CC is a quilter and a marvelous lady. Please visit Suzanne and thank her for the wonderful giveaway she is hosting too.

I am not quite as unique and talented as most of my blogging friends here so bare with me. I am always smiling when I see Sun Bonnet Sue these days. I always thought she was a sweetheart and reminded me of Holly Hobbie  too. But now she will take on a whole new meaning. Thanks CC for your friendship and for your dedication to all your blogging friends.

Hi Anne! I have a Sunbonnet Sue potholder that I sewed/made myself, and it hangs on the upper front of my refrigerator. It means MUCH more to me today, every time I glance at it, than it ever did before, because it reminds me of our dear friend CC!!! It does not make me sad though.. It makes me SMILE, and that was just CC's way, wasn't it?!!! (0; Have a nice day, and a wonderful weekend ahead! ((hugs)) ~tina
