March - St. Patrick's day is coming
I like March, there is the possibility of better weather. My father and sisters have their birthdays in March.
And is it the month of St. Patrick's day!
I always put out my Irish china - it is large enough to have a fun Irish tea party for eight. Last year I actually got to use it for a book club meeting here. This all started with one Irish teapot that my husband bought me in 1999!
I made these placemats a while ago. I have 9 of them, I used them once for a party. I put out three even though there are only two of us living here now. I just like the way the three look better.
I have an apron which matches these.
I am mostly Irish so this is a fun month for me. I don't go to the parade or dance the jig but I do have china and sewn Irish items.
On top of it I have one of my newest obsessions, Nora Fleming. I have a cake stand and two square/rectangle dishes plus a bunch of minis.
Of course I have a shamrock. Isn't it the cutest?
Have I sewn other Irish themed items, well, yes! But it's only March 1st, I can't blow me whole pot of gold. Erin go bragh!
