Although I've done a lot of sewing this week not much of it was with green scraps except for these three 10 inch Lady of the Lake blocks.
This is a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Project carried over from last year.
Today I will celebrate my Irish ancestry. No green beer or parties here- just the grand kids. We will probably spend the late afternoon and early evening playing board games and I may read them a few Irish folk tales or fairy tales from some old books of mine (or have them read to me) and tell them a few stories about their Irish ancestors. My paternal ancestors emigrated during famine times from Counties Galway, Mayo and Kilkenny in Ireland and eventually all settled in Emmetsburg, Palo Alto County, Iowa. When I first became interested in genealogy (way before the internet) I asked my paternal grandmother several times to tell me about her ancestors and each time she told me "the Irish? all they do is fight and drink. That's all I know." I've done a lot of family research over the years and found that, yes, they did fight and drink quite a bit; however, they did do a LOT more than that in between.
Happy St. Patrick's Day
Don't do too much fighting and drinking!
