I have to honor my Irish heritage by wearing green today and by wishing all of you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I made some Irish Soda bread last night. One for the office and one for home. Can't wait to cut into these! I have a wonderful recipe made with lots of butter and buttermilk so it isn't dry.
Also, I have been working on the Colorful Daisies candle mat that I picked up the pattern for at the quilt show last week. The green in this picture is a little off. It is more like the green below - bright and cheery!
Very colorful daisies (thus the name - lol) and really puts me in the mood for Spring!
Another pincushion?! Yes, they are my weakness and you can never have too many pincushions in my book! I made this one last week. I saw something similar online somewhere, but unfortunately I can't remember if it was on a blog, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. Sorry, I would like to give credit if it was yours.
Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day! Erin Go Bragh!
...and Happy Stitching!
I can almost small your wonderful looking Soda Bread down here!!! Now I haven't worked with wool or felt before but I must say looking at your candle mat coming along so beautifully I am definitely tempted to have a go! Pincushion - what a way to use some of my left over flying geese pieces, yours are a good size.ReplyDelete
Your soda bread looks delicious!ReplyDelete
never tried soda bread but it looks tempting. Like Mystic quilter have not tried wool work but off to a stitching show tomorrow and might look for some wool or a small kit to try. I too like pin cushions and have signed up to the pin cushion swap with BeaReplyDelete
Your little wool candle holder is so bright and cheerful!ReplyDelete
