Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
As promised I am pulling the name of the winner of a goody bag from my last post with guest blogger Faith Cleary. Congratulations to janicen7, you are the winner! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing information by next week to collect your prize.
St. Patrick’s Day has always been on of my favorite holidays. When I was younger I used to wake up on March 17th to find that leprechauns had visited over night and turned various food products, such as milk, green. (I must admit that it was a little much with the green milk). Green carnations magically appeared, and my mom got to work making the BEST corn beef dinners imaginable. As I got older, I found that even MORE food items could be turned green – namely the green beer that my local bar serves in honor of the holiday.
As you can see, one of the big St. Patties day traditions in my family was to alter the color of things. In honor of this tradition, I thought I might mention one of our FREE eBooks: Fabric Painting: 5 Surface Design, Paint, and Monoprint Techniques from Quilting Arts. This eBook is full of different ways to alter fabric. Might I suggest that you celebrate the day by challenging yourself to use mostly/all green paints and dyes!
Here is the link to the eBook: http://www.quiltingdaily.com/media/p/13878/showcontent.aspx

And just for fun, tell me what your favorite St. Patrick's Day memory/ tradition is and I will draw a winner next Monday for some Moda Fabric!
