We hope you are all having a lovely St. Paddy's day and finding your own pot 'o gold at the end of the rainbow.
We did, kind of....... buried underneath all sorts of sundry things was a very rainbow-like treasure. Yes, a few long forgotten kits of this were unearthed.
For those of you so inclined, we have this Mexican Flowers kit. It includes all the fabrics needed for the top and binding and the instructions. Click HERE for more info. If that isn't enough to give you spring fever, nothing will.
As for other St. Paddy's Day celebrations, let's just say those days are long past. We are 100% Irish (if we can believe everything our ancestors tell us - and let's just say they have been known to tell tales). We have a brother who has the Luck Of The Irish. He has long been the fortunate one. He had a few close calls, particularly some health issues the last couple of years, but he keeps bouncing back. He did it again 2 days ago. You might have seen the news coverage of the tornado that went through Dexter Michigan. The newer sub division has been more prominent in the news, but the other area is where our brother lives, was ravaged also. 150 year old trees were tossed about like pick-up-sticks. Most of the houses on his street had severe damage. Jeff's house lost part of a roof, a chunk of siding, some fencing, and a shed. That's it. Again, he is the lucky one. When I visited him yesterday the views were surreal. The landscape along the Huron River is completely changed. But, already the work was started and chain saws could be heard everywhere. His plans last night was to get power back on so he could watch a little bit of March Madness. Luck was shining down on everyone it seems. Despite the incredible damage, no one was hurt. That's enough of a celebration for all of us.
