Happy St. Paddy's Day!

I hope you're all wearing your green today! This is my lucky hexie I made last year while sewing with dear friends.  I need to get back to this project....time just has a habit of slipping away....  

Mom & Dad's wedding day
Today is my mom and dad's wedding anniversary; my mom even wore a lovely sage green suit that I've always loved!  (And yes, it's hanging in my closet along with my own wedding dress!)

Needless to say, Mom was just a wee bit Irish, and we girls have carried on the tradition so sisters Kathy, Sue & I along with our fams will be getting together tonight to raise a green beer in honor of our folks!  

 Meanwhile, things have been stacking up around here, while I work to have a new book ready for spring market!  It's shaping up (or should I say stacking up?) to be a fun (and crazy!) book! I will keep you posted on its progress!

Boise crazy piecing class

I've been fortunate to be doing quite a bit of teaching lately.  Be sure to check out my upcoming teaching schedule here.  I'll be in Arizona and Salt Lake in April, then home for a little Lake Time this summer, then off to Colorado and Indiana in September.  No wonder things  are stacking up here at home!  
I was in Boise last month to teach both crazy piecing and appliqué, where, as a bonus, I was able to reconnect with two of my sorority sisters.  I hadn't seen Marion since my wedding I think!  It was such a surprise to see her at the guild trunk show and so fun to visit again! It's that time thing again, slipping by, until I realize just how much I've missed the people I've loved!! So until next time.....may each of you know that "Ewe are loved"

The new book will be coming soon!
