March Madness

Those boys will pinch me if I'm not wearing green!

Even Copper wore green on St. Patrick's Day! I hope everyone had a fun time yesterday.   The Joyful Quilter helped me out of a "pinch" last week by suggesting that I bring green Rice Krispy Treats to the dinner at my LQS.  They were a hit!  What a great suggestion!  Later in the week I used that suggestion again when my son had to bring in a treat for Precalculus class on pi day. Get it, 3-14?  Math humor!  He had to bring in a food that related to the pi symbol.  A pie would have been the obvious choice, but he didn't want to go that route, so he made a giant rice Krispy Treat shaped like the pi symbol.  Did I take a picture of it?  No, for some reason I didn't.  That was the last sticky treat he will have for a while, because he had his wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. The poor guy feels miserable, but overall he is doing fine.

Shamrock Rice Krispy Treats

On the quilting front, I sent in my Just One Star block this week!  I hope everyone is participating in this wonderful cause to provide quilts to service members and veterans.  You can read all about it here.  All you have to do is make one star to help! I'd love to  know if you are participating!

Just One Star- Have you made yours yet?

It has been "madness" around here and the time got away from me.  I thought I had just done a post a few days ago, but suddenly its been a week, so I thought I'd do a quick post to say "Hello!" I have more projects to share so I'll be back soon!  Happy Friday!  Go Tarheels!

I'll be making a star once I get home.
Yay - the Golden Eagles of Marquette just won!

Copper is beautiful :)

Your clover shaped rice crispy treats are pretty cool! I would have never thought to do that... goes to show I wasn't created to be a cook. :)

Cooper does look like he has a touch of the Irish in him.

LOL, glad I helped with the suggestion, your shamrocks look good.

Abbie had her green on, too, compliments of the groomer! I was thinking about making a star block but it looks pretty complicated and I just know my points won't match up! Poor excuse, I know - I should just DO IT!

Your Krispie Shamrocks are great! What a wonderful idea. Cooper is so cute with his green! Those stars sure were fun to do...mine went in the mail. What a great project!

Cheryl said...

Those shamrocks are the best! What a great idea. Would have loved to see the pi symbol! Glad you are joining the crusade for the Just One Star project.

Cool Krispy treats...I'm guessing they make your mouth green when you taste them too. LOL

Enjoy your weekend friend!

Cute cute rice krispy treats! And your star is awesome. I would make one but I don't have any of the fabrics in my stash for the star and I'm trying REALLY hard to work out of my stash right now. Shopping is just too tempting.
