– which I thought was quite appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day!
The magazine contacted me a few months ago about my Ireland quilt. Someone (thank you whoever you are!) had sent them the link information about this quilt. They asked me about possibly spotlighting the quilt in the magazine. I felt quite honored! And pleased to have this way to memorialize my Irish friend (sad story here). Possibly sometime later this year!
And here is the gorgeous, wee man himself.
When I sent the quilt I received a really nice thank-you. Then the next week I got this message from his Dad via Facebook:
“By the way on the blanket are they ment to be Irish flags? Being a bloke and unsesitive to such things it was pointed out to me this evening at a freinds house that they looked like Irish flags, and if that is the case did you make it? If this is true then your blanket will have to be promoted to GREATER THAN the dino blanket (and that’s quite huge…). Alas it will not replace the No. 1 blanket, which if you wrap him in it when he’s feeding (with the sound effects) makes him look like a boar piglet, he’s just too cute then. “
Lol – I love it! Aww, God bless this single dad, doing the best that he can.
And speaking of Ireland, those sneaky Leprechaun’s also turned our milk green and left a box of Lucky Charms. The night before my kids were arguing about whether you could die from a Leprechaun’s pinch and my husband told them “No you can’t because there’s no such thing as Leprechauns.” (Not to be mean – he just really hates the idea of kids being deceived.) My 5-year-old son was quite shocked and said, “Well, they should just delete this holiday.”
When my son discovered the milk and Lucky Charms the next morning, I thought he would be dubious. Instead he was delighted and said,”Leprechauns must be real because you NEVER buy good cereal mom!”
