A little bit of Irish ......

May you have the hindsight to know where you've been, the foresight to know where you are going, and the insight to know when you have gone too far.

Spring has arrived and the snow is rapidly disappearing - hooray! 

Some new additions to our Irish décor this year are a shamrock table mat - the instructions were found here.  Included were the cutting instructions for a 12", 18", and 24" block. 



And a new x-stitch from here .....  I stained it to make it look old although that doesn't show up very well in the photo.

Hugs and love from Portugal,

Your weather sounds just like ours, Kate--it was as if suddenly "Old Man Winter" just turned the corner and headed right out of town!! We still have snow, but it is melting quickly, too :)

Love your Irish block and the little pillow--you're all set for St. Patrick's Day!
