Happy St. Patrick's Day!

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!



  1. 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.

  2. Your soda bread looks delicious!

  3. 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 Bea

  4. Your little wool candle holder is so bright and cheerful!
