March


At least there is a holiday in March that promotes the color green. If only the out doors would take the hint and follow suit. I have loved shamrocks for a long time and went out and bought some gorgeous purple ones and these beautiful green ones. I am hoping these guys will last a long time since the previous shamrocks I owned lasted a very long time until my dad put them outside and the birds ate all of the roots. Apparently, these roots were mighty tasty.

How is everyone doing on their quilt for the quilt-a-long? I am still working on the last few blocks and will begin cutting out the 400+ squares for finishing the quilt sometime soon. You can see the quilter's progress here. There are some truly stunning quilts in this group. I can only hope to be that good some day.

Happy St. Pattie's!

On the path...

Are those the plants that close up at night? I always thought they were cool, but I'm not much of a houseplant person.

I love shamrocks! I need to cut out about 30 more little blocks, then I need to start sewing them together for the quilt-a-long! I feel like I need to hurry, I know she wanted to start another one sometime soon!
