Final week of Green

Another week of Green and what have I done...barely anything. A few string blocks: greens and purples, because I have lots of purple scraps and need more purple string blocks. I have made green string blocks, because there are green scraps and want green string blocks.

I have also been given the most wonderful sets of pewter buttons from my friend Bonnie Taylor. Bonnie is an accomplished bag piper and proud collector of all things Celtic and Scottish. So when she gave me these particular buttons, I can barely describe how privileged I feel to have received these. The claddagh buttons are right on the green theme.

 as I plan to be in Ireland on Wednesday. This is my third trip to Ireland in as many years. My co-hosts and I will be hosting an International Gathering of the Guilds on Saturday June 6 in Killarney, Co Kerry, then off on a Celtic Shop Hop Tour of northwest Ireland. The Scottish thistle buttons will be used to celebrate our first quilt tour of Scotland, beginning September 22, 2015.

In the meantime I have got to get caught up on the green RSC15 blocks (still have the spinning pinwheel to do), pack, clean up at work, pick up some Euros...

  1. Have a wonderful trip - I am green with envy! ;-)

  2. Make the blocks when you get back! They can wait, but trip prep can't. Have a great time!

  3. I love your block. Have a great time.

  4. Oh that star is great--instead of the "Wearin' of the Green" it should be called the "Singin of the Green";-))) hugs, Julierose

  5. The claddagh buttons are AWESOME!! What a lovely gift. The GREEN block turned out great.

  6. LOVE those buttons. Have a wonderful vacation!
