Blog Hop Party Giveaway + A Little Of The Green


May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.

~Irish Blessing

It's Friday!  I'm amazed at how quickly the week has flown by.  I did some sewing and finished up the last swap of the for this month.  Grocery shopping was attended to and the normal chores and making of meals.  Somehow the hours are never long enough, even with the added daylight at the end of the day.  Today I'm off to a workshop being presented by our guild.  It will be a day of learning and fun.  This weekend they are forecasting a winter type storm to move into our area.  Hopefully it will add to our meager rainfall total for the year.  We will be attending a 70th birthday party Saturday that is to be held on the patio.  I sure hope they have lots of heaters!  What will your weekend be like?

===========================

LITTLE FACT OF THE DAY

St. Patrick's Day

Tomorrow, March 17, is St. Patrick's Day.  Whether you believe in the luck of the Irish or not, it's fun to have another day to celebrate.  And since green is my favorite color, it has to be one of my favorite days.  Here are a few facts concerning all things St. Patrick's and luck:
* St. Patrick’s Day is observed on March 17 because that is the feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland. It is believed that he died on March 17 in the year 461 AD. It is also a worldwide celebration of Irish culture and history. St. Patrick’s Day is a national holiday in Ireland, and a provincial holiday in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
The actual color of St. Patrick is blue. Green became associated with St. Patrick's Day during the 19th century. Green, in Irish legends, was worn by fairies and immortals, and also by people to encourage their crops to grow.
The very first St. Patrick's Day parade was not in Ireland. It was in Boston in 1737.
* The phrase, "Drowning The Shamrock" is from the custom of floating the shamrock on the top of whiskey before drinking it. The Irish believe that if you keep the custom, then you will have a prosperous year.
Legend says that each leaf of the clover means something: the first is for hope, the second for faith, the third for love and the fourth for luck.
The name “ leprechaun” has several origins. It could be from the Irish Gaelic word “leipreachan,” which means “a kind of aqueous sprite.” Or, it could be from “leath bhrogan,” which means “shoemaker.”
The very first St. Patrick's Day parade was not in Ireland. It was in Boston in 1737.

============================

STITCHERY UPDATE

I've continued to work on my Summer Sampler counted cross stitch.....

This is how much I had done two weeks ago (3-2-12).

This is how much I had completed last Friday (3-9-12).

And this is where I am today.  I didn't have as much time to stitch this week as I would have liked to.  I feel like they are making floss skeins smaller than they used to.  I had to buy some more skeins of a couple of the colors to be able to continue working on it.
Design: Summer Sampler
Designer: Sandy Orton for Kooler Design Studio
Fabric: 18 count cream Aida cloth
Fiber: 2 strands over 1 - DMC floss

============================

Enjoy your weekend!

marth225 said...

I really like blue but my favorite is pink

Lee Ann L. said...

My favorite color is purple and I'm not really sure why. I have another favorite color and it's green. Why? because it is also Dan's (my husband) favorite color. And, it goes great with green. Lately, I've been into brown -- rich chocolate color browns. I don't know why, I just gravitate toward them. I know. weird.

Thank you for a chance to win.

Patrica said...

Hope you do learn something new today at your workshop. My favorite color is any shade of green so calming, so cool, so natural and it goes well with my red hair.

I found you in the first giveaway, and now get advance notice on the second! How great is that? My favorite color is also green, I'm half Irish, so I have to show some Irish pride there, and I also grew up hanging out in the woods, so I'm a big nature fan. It's just the best color that makes me calm and happy!! Thanks for the opportunity!

Kylie said...

I love orange! It's just so bright and cheerful, though I never liked it growing up.

quiltercaroline said...

Hi Linda, I hope you have enjoyed your workshop at your guild. My favourite colour has always been purple but recently I have become a bit of a pink girl - although it has to be a rose or dusky pink. Don't know why it has changed. The cross stitch is coming on wonderfully - you have in fact got me stitching again - I have got hold of a few smaller pieces from ebay and am enjoying the little dove that I am working on. Thank you C x

Pat V. said...

My favorite color is orange. It makes me think of fall leaves and smiling jack-o-lanterns and pumpkins, and well, it's just my happy color! Plus I graduated from Syracuse and was an orangewoman...
(I've always wanted some Prayer Flag, BTW...)

Thanks for the giveaway chance! My favorite color changes a lot, but I have always loved how green-- curtains, or leaves on the trees outside- can make a room look like it is a part of nature. I think deep turquoise has always been my favorite favorite color, because it makes me think of dyed wool, deep lakes, and it is a year-round color!

Workshop with your guild? I was at the Glendale guild's show today. Much fun!

I guess my favorite color is blue but since I start pieceing I see colord differently and there are very few that I don't find pleasing any more.

Right now my favorite color is seafoam green. I'm not sure why, but I am drawn to it. Unfortunately, it's not in many fabrics as a feature color. sigh

Teal...mixed with brown and beige...reminds of the beach and ocean and I love that. Thanks for being so generous..I am already your follower.

beaquilter said...

I love blue and reds. Blue because I have blue eyes I think, I always loved blue growing up, I used to like red when I was little in the 70s and 80s but was dressed in red and brown all the time so I got sick and tired of it, but now I like it again.

Gwen said...

My most favorite color is and always has been blue! Blue is such a serene color to me--- calming... I usually have one other color that I gravitate toward, but that color will change for time to time, but blue is my constant! Thank you for the chance to win your generous giveaway prize!!! :-)

I noticed lately I have been drawn towards the reds. We just moved to a farm and I'm thinking because of the red doors on all the out buildings makes me want to decorate in red.

Hi
my favorite colors are red and purple, never made a quilt with those colors but maybe once i get a chance to make my own quilt I will come with a quilt in those colors...Im so glad the new color of the year is orange. My hubby and i painted our room orange about 2 years ago and had a hard time finding orange bed stuff so hopefully now it will make it easier to make stuff for the room angchappell@yahoo.com
