I feel a whole lot more Danish then Irish but I've got a wee bit of Irish in me too! I come from a long line of the McNees family who immigrated to Maryland from Cootehill, County Cavan, Ireland in the mid-1700's.
I saw this quilt form a distance and I thought immediately of St. Paddy's day. When I got closer I realized this was the BACK of a quilt. Pretty cool huh? (another huge one too!) I couldn't wait to see what the front of the quilt looked like. See next photo.....
Wow, I had some pretty interesting thoughts on that which I will keep to myself.
For those of you that like to read I have a couple of "green" recommendations.
A few weeks ago I finished "Shannon" by Frank Delaney. I loved it! It's about a priest who comes back from the war shell shocked and travels the Shannon River in Ireland looking for his ancestors.
Another one I read by him some time ago is "Simple Courage- The True Story of Peril on the Sea"
Another trilogy of books set in Ireland is by Brendan O'Carroll. Hilarious, funny and sad and a joy to read.
One of my all time favorites of triumphing over difficulties is Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt.
Happy St. Paddy's Day!!
