My sewing machine Yahoo group does challenges each month, and I decided it was time to take part. Last month's theme was going green -- either in color or by using recycled materials. I went with the former.

"Luck" is made like "Love," free style piecing and free style letters. This time I used a paper piecing template for the shamrock.

I was a tad bit short on the fabric for the binding so I added a strip of white and added french knot "polka dots."

I'd like to make this a series of three to hang in our foyer. Let's hope I get #3 done more quickly -- it was over a year between "Love" and "Luck."

But before I can start that, I have a couple of project in the pipeline. The next Old Red Barn Co. Quilt Along is hexagons. I will use this:

And the UPS man is bringing me a gift tomorrow, and I am sure I need to sew something in welcome.

I heard of the iPad coming; I popped over to Apple's website but the tv ad wasn't working well. There's heightened expectations created now: you must let us know what you think of the iPad!! What fun!! And it isn't as expensive as other Apple products either!! I was thinking of a laptop but would an iPad suffice?!
