All things green

The big day is almost here so I thought I should start to prepare for all things Irish!  Today as I was picking up a few things at the grocery store I passed a display of little shamrock plants. 
I really hope this little guy survives (and thrives).  I don't have the best history with house plants.  Maybe the "luck of the Irish" will shine down on it 😀☘️ And this was the weekend craft project - a little table topper
My first attempt at pinwheels.  They are not as easy as I thought. They are not perfect but they will do just fine for a first attempt.  Here's a close up
I love that shamrock fabric.  It was a fun little project and helped me get more confident with adding the binding and going around those corners.  And for dessert, a batch of pistachio squares.
The finished pan of squares are in the refrigerator to set before I can cut them.  It's going to be a long couple of hours.   Lol


  1. Your pinwheel project came out great! You go girl.
    I'll be over for!
    Hugs :)

  2. Kim, I'm really proud of you with those little sewing projects. How cute is that!
    I started a star quilt years a go and I had difficulty with the points and it's still sitting in the UFO pile. All the fabric has been cut.
    Some day I may be brave enough to try again.
    Your desert sounds delicious.
    Happy St Patrick Day this week.

  3. Well aren't you the Queen of Quilt! I love roasted pistacios but wonder what those squares (cookies, candy?) taste like.

  4. Love the quilt and I do hope your plant does well. I'm not a good houseplant person either...outside I do much better! Hope your squares are delish and maybe there's some corned beef and cabbage later this week?

  5. Love that little quilt! And those pistachio bars....Mmmmmmmm! :-)

  6. I love your green things...the pinwheels are sweet with the white setting off the green and your squares are pistachio so must be good. Happy Stitching, Eating, etc.

  7. Well there! you did a wonderful little quilt. I would love to have dessert with you

  8. I love your quilt! Pinwheels make me crazy. :) I think yours turned out incredible. I hope you have a really great week Kim!

  9. just so you know, that little plant may all die off at some point, but fear not, it is just resting and should come back!

  10. Well aren't you the Queen of Quilt! I love roasted pistacios but wonder what those squares (cookies, candy?) taste like.
