9 Patch

Yesterday was National Quilters Day 
and I hope you all had a lovely day sewing.
I got a few things accomplished
 - one can do that when they wake up on their day off at 7 am!!
In amongst my cleaning and sewing I was able to spend some time with a dear friend,
chat with another lovely friend by phone and facetime with my daughter in London.

Can life get any better??
Terry inspired me to start a 9 patch quilt.  
I've been needing to start another baby quilt, this time for a boy.
For some reason I have an easier time coming up with girls quilts 
. . . maybe 'cause I'm drawn to those colours??

I think this is coming along nicely though.

Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone!

I have a interesting and funny story about St. Patrick's day.  I work at an educational institute where we have a number of international students.  I was doing the in-person registrations on this particular day.  A young gentleman came to register who was Russian and spoke very little English.  It turns out he was the same age as my son so we struck up a little conversation with his limited vocabulary.  At the end of the conversation, he said, I just have one question, "Why is everyone wearing green"?  The funny part is trying to explain to a Russian about an Irish tradition in Canada with limited English . . . it must have sounded quite comical if our conversation was overheard!

Enjoy your Sunday and remember to wear 'green'!
