Getting my Overseas clock sorted out

The only down side to international travel (and even then it is a teeny weeny downside) is getting back to "home-time". Awake at 4 and wanting to be in bed by 8:30 is small potatoes after spending 10 glorious days in Ireland with Celtic Quilt Tours. Ireland is beautiful and full of magical and tragic history and triumphant new beginnings. We visited Limerick, Killarney, Galway, Donegal and Dublin and all the wonders in between.

We went out for a medieval costume.
We stayed in at Kilronan Castle. We climbed the wall in an ancient ring fort (500 BC).

We visited woolen mills and quilt shops in out of the way places. Local quilters provided us with quilt shows topped off with tea and scones...always.

I am playing catch up to get my RSC15 up to date. The little houses fabric for my Sawtooth Star points was made with one of my Ireland purchases...from RAGs for Linda at Oughterard. The hexie quilt shown here is all Peter's work.
I will think fondly of Peter and Linda each time I look at this stars in my quilt. And ahem...that was not the only fabric that made its way home to Canada from Ireland. You must visit them if you are ever in Co. Galway.

And now I am caught up on the last of the green blocks, Split Pinwheel. Thank you again SoScrappy for providing this venue for us all to share. Of note, the inner green pinwheel is fabric from!
