“May the dreams you hold dearest be those which come true, and the kindness you spread keep returning to you.” — Irish blessing
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
Remember this project?
I finished it up with a simple cross hatch using the walking foot, and it now resides on my dining table.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand. -Irish Blessing
I don’t have a lot of sewing progress to share, since I have been using my time to clean out cabinets, closets and read a novel.
Remember the bow tie flimsy? I let it marinate while I considered whether or not I could live with the size that I made.
I decided that I wasn’t upset with it anymore, and I would make more bow ties to add to the width.
I finished the extra blocks and they are now sewn to the flimsy.
So now it marinates some more until I can come up with a backing for it.

Pat Sloan’s Shamrock Stem caught my eye. I don’t have a decorative table topper (that can also be used as a small wall hanging) for March, so I spent the weekend making one.
Four blocks on the design wall:
Blocks sewn together, and borders added:
I just got home from work for the day and had an idea. (It happens.)
I have been enjoying lots of blogger posts brimming with excitement as their gardens come to life with crocus, snowdrops and daffodils.
So…why not share a little stroll around my garden?
March, when days are getting long, Let thy growing hours be strong to set right some wintry wrong. –Caroline May
My father was often impatient during March, waiting for winter to end, the cold to ease, the sun to reappear. March was an unpredictable month, when it was never clear what might happen. Warm days raised hopes until ice and grey skies shut over the town again. –Tracy Chevalier
