March and Miniatures

It’s March… and what better way to show off the “month of the Irish” than with this adorable little dish my friends Sandy and Mike gave me! It came straight from Ireland where they lived for several years, and is a piece of Belleek. The Belleek website is very interesting… check out the castle on the main page! Facinating!

This quilt is only 16 x 19 inches and was made years ago during my “Amish period.” At that time, my house was decorated pretty Country Primitive. Funny how our tastes change, isn’t it? I’m taking it to my class tonight as part of a lesson on the Amish. This is a class in reading instruction for Ferris State University, but I can never teach a class without bring in at least one quilt as part of the lesson.

May the road rise to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face.

And rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
