Happy Paddy's Day

And enjoy if you are out and about getting hammered in celebration, but I'll pass on that part thanks.

I am a true plastic paddy, Irish parents english born but I hate going out on paddys night. I think it was being traumatised at a Irish club when I was little that caused my aversion, being flung around a overcrowd room but drunken loonies to the Siege of Ennis did it for me! Not that I have a problem to the drinking, at certain occasions I'd be the drunken loony these days but tonight I'll stay in and enjoy a nice glass or two of the rose in the fridge.

I'm not doing much sewing as I am trying to get all my annoying jobs done as I start back at work next week. I've been off for a year and on monday unexpectedly someone offered me a 3 month contract. I couldn't really say no but have been sulking ever since and the thought of not having loads of sewing time.

Today though I just did a few little bits to keep my hand in, some foundation paper piecing and my first ever curved seam! Its not great but I been too scared to try one for ages.

Having been retired for 6 years going back to work would be too much like work:) Ha Ha, I would hate it, no time to quilt. But time will fly before you know it. Nice blocks.

Oh this is just too spooky Shevvy.

I too have been avoiding curved seams and think I've found a way around it with my latest quilt. And those trees are exactly like ones I've been looking for the Christmas quilt I'm starting in June.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a uber cool comment. I'm really looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
