HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY EVERYBODY!!
Today is all about being IRISH and the wearing of the GREEN!! GREEN RULES!!
Meinca-mainer - did a post asking for photos of GREEN quilts - and I sent her some photos of one of mine - Noriko's Bear Paw. (I'll post the story on Saturday because tomorrow is "Five Question Friday".) Check out her blog here - and - on my sidebar. She's making some really pretty stuff!!
In exchange for photos - she offered to send a fat quarter to all who responded. I asked her to send me her "ugliest" fat quarter - just for fun! Can't wait to see what I get! One person's "ugly" is another person's "not so bad". So we'll see. Should be fun!
And - while I was looking for any quilt that I had made that was GREEN - you will never guess what I found -
This is the "second" thing I ever made - A Green/Pink Apron and Matching Potholder - in 7th grade Home-Ec class. I even have the pattern - it takes only one yard of "material" as it was called back then. And yes, I am that old! I don't think they even have Home-Ec classes any more - do they? That's too bad - they really should!
Here's a close-up of the pocket - not bad for a kid - huh?
What fun!! Almost makes me want to make another one - well, almost - not quite!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Love it! You have this and not your wedding dress, how sad.
Yeah - losing my wedding dress was sad - but it truly was an accident - so we couldn't do much about it. (Big sigh!) I still have pictures though, and, of course, my memories - so all was not lost. (Happy Face!)
