COLOR of the Year, and some good advice too
This color is ggrowing on me again...it used to be in once earlier in my life and everyone mixed it with cranberry and my goodness almost everyone had this green carpeting and restaurants too. I have always been a red, white and yellow girl in my home so I didn't sway to green BUT I am finding myself really studying it.
The reason why is I am invited to do an Ireland tour for the quilt show in 2014. I have started telling people that I would LOVE to have friends go and that with the date a year and a half away this would give you time if you started saving a bit now. We get to see the Ireland Quilt Symposium and also go on a bus tour to see the delightful country of Ireland.
Now to me this is music to my ears as I am Irish and with a name like Mary Donahue and my brother Danny Donahue, you can get much more than that. For years my Grandmother would send me a little package of Irish girls in porceline. Now I have the bright idea of doing a nice big Irish quilt. And what better color to base the quilt on this shade of green, am I right? So , if you are Irish or want to be, then you might plan on a trip along with me to Ireland in June of 2014 and also making an Irish quilt which I would happily feature here on my blog and if we got enough of them I can find us a great venue to show our work! FUN!
What are your feelings of this color? I have a few give away things and if you post in the next two weeks, you might be lucky and win something fun.
