Tea and Stitches ...........

will be posted next Wednesday, March 11th so that I may bring you a little Irish Teatime just a few days before St. Patrick's Day. Then on St. Patrick's Day, March 17 I will post again with a bit of wee surprise for those of you that follow my Tea and Stitches blog.

Til then, I share my favorite Irish blessing.....

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and, until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Hello there Sandi,

I came in wondering what you had in store for us but I will happily wait until next Wednesday. I must tell you that I am doing a Calendar quilt and for the February 4th strip, you inspired me and the strip i cut out was full of tea and desserts. Thanks for your inspiring posts on this blog and the other!

Until next week!

OH how fun!! What a wonderful Irish blessing...and the same to 'ye, dear wee lady! (said in an Irish accent!)I will be waiting for this pretty one. Have fun with your wonderful crazy quilt show coming up.

A little stitching poem.........

This little poem was written for one of my beginning quilting students - only 8 years old but her stitches were those of a natural seamstress!

For Bailey Anne . . . .
When this you see, think of me.
Sit down and have a cup of tea.
Then place your quilt upon your lap,
begin to stitch . . . no time to nap!
Stitch patiently and you will see . . .

how fine a quilter you can be!
