Building Country Cottages

I have been building houses here in Texas.  .  
I am appliqueing vines, stars and berries onto the border.  
I just have to make the berries and then 
I will be ready to sit in front of the television and stitch.  
 This is a picture of one of the houses up close.  
The fabric is homespun.  The block size is 12 1/2 inches. 
 I like the red roof on this house and who 
doesn't like shutters on the outside of a house below.  
It is raining here today so it is a good day to sew!

Busy Week!!!

Marlene arrived on the Tuesday and we started cooking Corned beef and cabbage on Wednesday for my girls club. We had 9 at the table that evening.  Thursday we prepared appetizers for 23 members of our "Dinner Out" club who arrived at 5:30 for cocktails.  Then we all went to dinner at the neighborhood Irish Pub.  Friday  night we attend a Celtic Program at the Allen Library and Saturday we cooked again for the Family St. Patrick's day dinner of Corned Beef and Cabbage.  
We spent lots of time in the kitchen this week. 

 Two of my favorite people, Deb and Marlene, 
celebrating Thursday night with the Dinner Out Group.

  On Monday, St. Patrick's Day, 

we went to lunch at the "Irish Rover" in Frisco, TX.  

 Marlene and Theresa joined us at the Irish Rover for lunch on St. Patrick's Day.  
The beer and food were delicious!

 Monday night we went to "Delaney's" for a beer and more Irish food. 

 Marlene brought a couple of projects with her.  
We put together two small quilts.

 Second race car quilt completed. 

Some little boy is going to enjoy wrapping himself up in this quilt.

Backside of my "Quilt As You Go" quilt.

The back of my quilt is almost as pretty as the front. 
 I really enjoyed this project.  
Today is Ash Wednesday - the start of Lent.  
So this morning I went to Mass for my ashes.  
Now on to the grocery store, post office and to
Walgreens to get my booster pneumonia shot.
