    Monday - Are you wearing green?


    Happy Monday Folksies! Happy St Patricks Day!

    I reckon everyone is Irish today. When I was a child, I used to love St Patricks Day. My New York Granny always had Cornbeef and Cabbage, soda bread, cupcakes with green frosting, etc etc. What a fun way to say GOODBYE TO WINTER. eh?! Let's count this week as our last week of weather shall we?

    I am going to post this in another thread but since I already have this on my mind - and you know my mind (I may forget) Where can I go look and purchase some autumn fabrics? I have a very close and dear friend who has a daughter getting married in October and wants an autumn color quilt. Think orange-y autumn.

    This past weekend was pleasant enough. Work, and then yesterday once the rain started in, I decided to cut out more scraps for a bonnie hunter quilt along I am going to start. I am looking forward to have another Bonnie project in the wings. I haven't done her past few mystery quilts and would like to eventually make the Soltice one.
    I may have to cut some more this morning considering that we are having school delays due to wintry mix. But for right now, I have a fresh and hot cup of delish coffee, hubs is looking like he needs another one as well. Big hugs, smiles and prayers for each here.

    Sewing mends the soul.

    Good morning and happy St. Patrick's Day to all.

    Well I start my week of work, quilting and watching movies. I have my quilt all sandwiched and ready to go, templates at the ready.

    We took Maizyn back home on Saturday. We had a lovely week together. Nice to have her for the week but glad she is now home.

    Not much else to report so everyone have a wonderful week.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

      Good morning Blondie! I'm sitting here with my first cup of coffee trying to think if I even have anything green to wear today. It seems my brains are not cooperating yet. Monday just came too fast. I was able to get the rest of my circles cut for my denim quilt but that was it. Was not able to celebrate quilting day very well so I will make it quilting week when dd goes back to school.

      It turned cold and was rainy yesterday. Thank goodness we escaped the sleet and snow. DD fixed roast and potatoes for supper yesterday and we took it to my mom's and shared with her. I also picked up a delicious turtle pie for our dessert. It was yummy!

      Time to go browse the newbie section and welcome people. I told myself I would be better about doing that. So,

      HAPPY ST. PATTY'S DAY EVERYONE!

        Happy St. Paddy's day all! Yep, everyone is Irish today, but I'm Irish all year long and proud of it! My father's parents came over here from Ireland a few years before he was born and one day going to the Emerald Isle and seeing that beautiful part of the world and looking up some family is on my bucket list.

        Hope you all have a great Monday and St. Paddy's day!
        May your blessing outnumber the shamrocks that grow, and my trouble avoid you wherever you go.

          The federal offices are closed. The DC offices are closed. Fairfax buses are running on Saturday schedule. I could go to work. But must I? Yes, I will wear the green sweater and matching earrings :-)

            No green for me today that is seeable anyway since work dress code only allows red, black, beige, denim. Irish everyday!!! Even its only a wee bit, My Grampa was Scotch, Irish English
            Have a great day all! Hugs to all that need them

              Good Morning! No green yet, I'm still in my jammies! I'm making corned beef and cabbage today. Giving the Hubby a break on the cooking. He actually left a list taped to the coffee maker of good "go withs" for corned beef LOL! He's a kitchen control freak I think.

              Yoga today! It's getting a little easier to drag myself out each time. Mostly because of how much it helps me and I can FEEL the difference in my attitude.

              Raining here still. I have daffodils fully up and ready to open with the first ray of warm sunshine right out side my front door. When they open I'm calling an official end to Winter! I'll keep ya posted!

              Blondie, I was in Ben Franklin's yesterday and they still had a good assortment of fall fabrics. Really, this is probably a good time to be buying fall fabric because you'll get a good sale. Ebay would also be a good place to look, if you don't mind buying that way. If you need help....like, you want me to pick some up or dig thru MY stash let me know!

              Guess I'll go grab my shower before anyone else is up and competition grows! Hot water is a commodity 'round here! Especially on Monday morning!

              Have a wonderful day everyone. Hug someone - even if it's random and for no reason. Prayers/Hugs from me for whoever wants/needs!

                  Good morning and Happy St. Patrick's Day....

                  A new work week and a lot of catching up to do, since I was off for a few days last week.

                  This is what I have been working on. I started the quilting twice and ripped it out twice and finally it is now being quilted. This is the quilt I will be giving to my niece in memory of her mom.


                  So tonight I will be working on this quilt.

                  Well I need to get busy...have a wonderful day!

                    Hi everyone! Half Irish, so I am wearing green on the top half!

                    I have two Irish chain quilts ready to be quilted, so I am going to try to get going on at least one of them today! Have another tutorial project I'm working on. It's definitely a work in progress, not ready for primetime!

                    I so want corned beef and cabbage, but my daughter who likes it and would help me eat it is the one who moved to Atlanta. I love it but won't cook it just for me. I'll eat a Rueben sandwich and call it my corned beef and cabbage?

                    Have a great day.

                      Morning all...Happy St Patricks day!! I spent the whole day working on a 30 x30 block for my prairie rose BOM. I had a much better result this month and took my time putting it together. But it pretty much took all day. 2 down 7 to go! The quilt will finish 100 x 100.

                      It's back to work today. I get 3 days off this week...but wanna get a feel for what the business level this week is before I decide to take that third day off. Last week was so incredibly crazy...my store sales were up 34%. Let's hope I can get most of that to the bottom line...but considering i have had to spend money on a freezer and a walkin cooler in the last week...we will see.

                      Tonight is a new club at the LQS. It's called stripe tease. It consist of a ruler and striped fabrics...I will let ya know!!

                      Everyone have a safe holiday and a great day!!

                        No one will eat corned beef and cabbage here with me - a Rueben Sandwich from Schlotzsky's Deli tonight is about as close as I'm going to get, Jean. I'll be thinking of you when I take me first bite.

                          I have a houseful of people who love corned beef, and if I didn't....I would take it anyway I could get it! Love corned beef! Every year I wonder why I only make it once.

                            Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm in red, white, and blue today...may have to add a green ribbon if I go out. The snow last night in KY went north of us...Yay!! I'm planning to finish the string-pieced outer border of my Love Shack wall hanging today. There are 30 of these 3.5" blocks needed and I have 20 made. String piecing is not a favorite of mine. I need to do some laundry before sewing.

                              Wearing the GREEN here, too! Al had on a green shirt yesterday and the girls were teasing him that he'd have to wear it two days in a row. That man - gotta love him. You all know the boring saga of the quilting machine, right? Well he's taken it over and is having a blast. He informed me last night that I'd best be getting more tops pieced because he was ready to quilt another one. He's managed, through all the frustration, to be solving some problems and is 'right on top' of it . . . now if he would only remember to lower the hopping foot at the beginning of every row. But, what can I expect from someone who can't even lower a toilet seat (actually that's a joke because I've never had that problem with him . . . TMI)

                              Sending prayers to the family of the young woman who lost her life in front of our place on Saturday night. So sad, so sad.

                              Chumping away at my projects list - sometimes I fly by the seat of my pants in that department. Over the weekend Al and I took a ride to a nearby artsy town to view my nephew Kenn's photo exhibit. While there we also wandered through a delightful yarn shop and were totally blown away - such a fun boutique atmosphere. They had an antique quilt encased in it's own little gallery (beautiful - I will put pictures in my album) and then I came across these Victorian heart-shaped pin cushions . . . so my dreams all night were making one, or two or more. That may take precedent today.

                              Off to visit with the Wizard! Hoping the corn beef and cabbage are ample enough to go around tonight . . . YUM!


                              Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
                              it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.
