Irish For The Day!

Nobody said I had to be Irish!
St. Patricks Day is only a few days away. 
So I wanted to share a few projects with you.

This is a Shamrock Table Runner.
It is made the same way as the Fall Leaves--you can click HERE for a tutorial I had made earlier.

Last night was our guild meeting and I made Irish Bark.
 It was a big hit. Even though I don't use a recipe you can get one by clicking HERE. I didn't use anything with mint
 because I know of several who do not care for it. 
I use whatever I have in my pantry. Nuts, raisins, marshmallows candy and pretzels.
 It is a great way to remove extra calories from your house.

This it what I used for the Shamrock template.
 I either picked it up at the Dollar Store or Walmart.
It is a plastic  placement.

This dress I got at a second hand store with the hopes of recycling it. It is rayon batik and has a Celtic design that I liked. However I was not sure what
I was going to do with it.

A closeup of the Celtic design.

My mother suggested that I line it.
I am glad I did, the rayon was so.. light weight and
droopy that the lining gave it shape.
Click HERE for the link to the vest pattern.

Laying out the pattern to get the best use of the Celtic design. It was a easy project to do.

And the Vest!

I hope to find more fun things to recycle!

While in Sanibel, Florida we visited the islands knitting
store where I got this yarn for this scarf.
I like making small things on the beach.

Isn't this a Fiber Freak's Fantasy!

Last Night at our guild meeting. It was Quilto Night!

Yesterday it was SO.. BEAUTIFUL on the coast of New Jersey. My mom, son and I went to the beach. Normally we would have to protect ourselves from the wind and sand amongst the sand dunes,
but yesterday we were down near the water.
It was perfect!

We really should have put on SPF.
I went to the guild meeting glowing!
Who would have thought March 14th and Sunscreen
 would go together.

And of course I had to bring a project with me.
I am knitting a Infinity Scarf for my niece.
It is in the colors of the college she will be
attending  come the fall.

Enjoy the beautiful weather!
Calling for 75 degrees this and next week.
So what day and time shall I meet you on the beach?

Till We Quilt Again,
