Yes, I am Irish...





I made this variation of the Irish Chain quilt this weekend. There was a mystery quilt class on Thursday, and this is the quilt we were making. I finished it this weekend (really easy) and will try to quilt it this month. At least it was done for St. Paticks Day! The entire quilt is green and white, with the bottom fabric the larger border (I love the shamrocks!) This weekend was a tragic one for my friend (her 25 year old son died in a car crash on Saturday morning) and I used my sewing time to say my prayers for her and for those of us who are her friends. I cannot imagine how we can help her, except to be there. I spent a lot of time thinking about how fragile life is and thinking about how much we had better all make that time memorable and how we had better act on all those dreams we have instead of waiting for the "right" time. Hope you enjoy your corned beef and cabbage tonight. My daughter is making ziti!! What kind of Irish chick is she? I get a night off from the kitchen, so I am not complaining!!:)
