kiss me I'm Irish

I don't think I am actually very much Irish, but I do enjoy wearing my "kiss me I'm Irish" t-shirt.  I do not, however, like Lucky Charms.  Ick. 

The rest of this post will not be about Ireland, St. Patrick's Day, or cartoon leprechauns at all, but I felt that I couldn't overlook the holiday entirely.

Now how about that quilt?  Eh? 

I am thrilled with how this baby blanket turned out and think that the colors and patterns would make a lovely grown-up quilt as well.  I love to use non-baby looking fabrics to make beautiful things for babies.  And I think the babies probably appreciate it. 

My other, almost finished, project of the week cannot be shown because it is a surprise gift that I was commissioned to work on.  Isn't that exciting?  It could be for you!  You just never know.  But if, in three weeks, you haven't received a lovely handmade gift, it probably wasn't for you.  Sorry about that. 

I took a serious trip to the fabric store this week and came home exhausted, but with some great stuff.  I've been waiting to finish these other projects so that I can dig into my bag of new fabric.  I thought I would share some sneak peaks of what I got. 

I am working on a new spring line for the shop and am super excited!  I honestly can't wait to show you, but I will have to, as none of it is actually made yet.  I can guarantee that you will love it if you like: gardens, spring, Anthropologie, one of a kind things, texture, organization, or awesomeness.  How's that for a guarantee?

One thing that I am also really excited about is that I am planning to create an exclusive piece in my spring line just for my blog readers!  That's right- as a thank you to my readers, I plan to make one item that is super cool, totally special, seriously amazing, and only for sale on my blog. 

I know, is the suspense killing you?

Good things come to those who wait.  Production will start on Monday and be finished, God willing, sometime before April 12th.  I have another craft fair on April 12th and, if you remember the craft fair last fall, things will probably be a bit frantic until then. 

Right now, I'm going to finish prepping for a nice three day weekend with my husband and sister-in-law, who is coming for a visit.  We're a regular B&B around here.  We love it.  In a span of six weeks, we will have had visits from three of our four siblings.  We're waiting for you next, Bren. 

Hope your weekend is swell and filled with something nice like siblings or flowers or cinnamon rolls!
