HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY EVERYBODY!!
Today is all about being IRISH
And the wearing of the GREEN!!
Last year -
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.
In exchange for photos -
She offered to send a fat quarter to all who responded.
So I asked her to send me her "ugliest" fat quarter - just for fun!
She sent me a GORGEOUS fat quarter - here - ;))
If you do a "search" for Ladies -
You will get a list of all of those posts -
And you can see what I did with it - ;))
And then I entered Noriko's Bear Paw
In Michele's Weekly Themed Contest -
and I WON!
And - while I was looking for any quilt that I had made that was GREEN -
For Judee and Michele -
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?
Almost makes me want to make another one - well, almost - not quite!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
