Get Together and Give Away

I am down in Annapolis this weekend playing with Elizabeth. Well, right now she and Jim are working on the business books- so, not so much fun! I stay a little out of that- I claim it hurts my brain!

We just signed up to do the April Quilt Dash.

If you have never participated in the Quilt Dash, it is a fun online shop hop. All the participating shops donate prizes to be won by the participants.

So pop over to their site to check it out.

Originally, I was hoping they would have a Quilt Dash in February- we wanted to give away one of our Lucky Seven patterns. This pattern is for a banner; you can make three sections individually and then use grommets and ribbon to string them together.

Or you can just sew the blocks together and make one long banner. Banner is about 16" x 48".
It also makes a great table runner!

So...let's do a give away. We'll see if anyone is listening!

Leave me a comment on how you celebrate the holiday. Need a hint what holiday?
Green beer?
Corned beef?
Dancing a jig?

Years ago my daughter was an Irish dancer and would spend the a few days close to the holiday dancing at various Irish suppers with her school. Now she goes to listen to her boyfriend's Irish band and will still occasionally break out into a jig!

Comments will close next Saturday and I will draw a winner Sunday February 19th.

in the meantime...

Happy quilting
Kate

      I always feel bad saying I don't like corned beef and cabbage- my poor Irish relatives are hanging their heads in shame!

  10. I have a small green plastic beer mug on a chain that I wear for the day. Incorporates wearing something green and green beer into one easy but not too chic accessory.

  12. Corned Beef and Cabbage, definitely! Always have that for St. Paddy's Day. My husband starting making it for me years ago, and now I have to make it for myself. His was better. =)

    1. Isn't it funny how some people make a dish with the same recipe and it tastes different? Of course, sometimes the difference is that we love the person!
      Hope you have a wonderful St Patty's Day!

  13. As a teenager I lived in a boarding house with an Irish chef so we had green donuts, green cordial, green icecream and many other green foods (that should never be green!!!)
    It is one of my favourite memories of the holiday.

    1. That is a great memory! You are right though, some foods should never be green!
