Random pictures from Ireland

I am still working on the same projects so no new pictures. I had a three day weekend so took a lazy day yesterday. Went to the beauty school and got a hair cut and face wax. I spent a couple of hours walking around Joann's and a local quilt store. A couple of remnant jumped in my cart. lol Visited the thrift store and bought some paperback books.
Today we are going to my mom and dad's for a St. Patrick's day party. It has me thinking of our month long trip to Ireland in October. So I thought I would share some of our pictures. I took this picture for my husband, a fixer upper, lol

I never knew there were so many different shades of green till Ireland. See the hedgerow fences.

This was a stone ring 4000 to 5000 years old.

The wind was blowing so bad that it was blowing this water fall backwards up in the air. This was taken on the western coast by Dingle. Much better cliffs than The Cliffs of Moher. And Free.
Stay tuned I will be posting more pictures of Ireland till St. Patrick's Day. This was the most wonderful trip I had ever been on. I am so lucky to have my parents and to be able to share this with them. How many people do you know you could spend a month traveling around with and still be speaking when the trip is over? lol

Finished project from the cave and a new purse!

I made this purse from crumbs of my scraps.
I finally gave up and change my wintry Christmas purse out for this one. It is so bright and cheerful. I took it with me when I went to Joann's Sunday and got a lot of compliments. Even small scraps can do something. We pay for all our fabrics so need to use ALL of it.

Next Saturday my mom is having a St. Patrick's day party. My mom, sister, sister-in-law, daughter and myself are supposed to make a craft using green for an exchange.

I made fabric bowls. I wanted to do something that no one has and a little different than a quilt or wall hanging.

Each one is different. Quick and easy. I am so glad they are done. Usually I'm the one finishing up the hour before we leave. lol
I enjoy reading comments sometimes I have a hard time replying back with email. It just doesn't work so I may have to reply back to you in one of your blogs. There are so many of you out there that are so talented. I could and do get stuck on here going from blog to blog adding to my to do lists. Thank you all.

Added to the Stash!

I went to Joann's favric store today for their $1.99 a yard Quilters showcase fabric. Useually the Quilters showcase fabrics are lights and nutrals. That is what I went intending to buy.
Well It was all brights.

I know that the pictures do not do this fabric justice.

They are beautiful! I can't wait to start playing with them!
