A Wee-Bit of Ireland

Wow! - judging from my email, today will definitely be my day. Every company I have ever had contact with tells me I'm lucky because they are having a special sale (just for me!) Oh, wait - they are telling you the same thing?? Ah, well, just one of those things that made me smile this morning. heehee

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I came across a few interesting Irish-y tidbits on the web that I thought I would share. Did you know you can participate in an actual Leprechaun Watch? That's right! You can watch for leprechaun activity in Tipperary, Ireland via a live webcam! Not only can you watch, but you can print yourself out an authentic certificate testifying to the fact!! The site also offers info on Irish history, culture, folklore and travel information. Intrigued? Visit

Yesterday I baked my very first loaf of Irish Soda Bread and it was yummy! I've never had that type of bread before, must not be any Irish blood in my background (never had Irish Stew either). I have no idea how authentic the recipe might be, but hubby and I did enjoy it. Here's the link to the Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread that I found at And here's how mine turned out.

It was moist inside but crusty/crumbly on the outside with a nicely sweet taste - good stuff!

I'm offering a little something different for today's freebie file. I paper-pieced a little leprechaun yesterday and turned him into a Print-N-Cut file. Sorry, but he's only offered in GSD this time.

Now available for purchase at Cutters Market

It is easy to be pleasant
when life flows by like a song,
but the man worth while
is the one who will smile
when everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
and it always comes with years,
and the smile that is worth
the praises of earth
is the smile that shines through the tears.
----Irish Saying
