Happy St Patrick's Day!

Everything green today - although the dinner ladies didn't colour the water on the lunch tables emerald, as they have done in the past! As we have a strong Irish contingent at School, there was much merriment today.
Mairead was given these cute shamrocks as a gift and asked me if I could put brooch backs on them for International Eve  - our big concert. It's tomorrow, so I've had lots to do to organise that; rehearse the children, organise the food, the raffle, the parents, the decorations. I always love it, it's one of my favourite events - but there's a lot of prep.

This daffodil-type flower I made from the cotton I dyed with turmeric - came out well!

Spring equinox this weekend, so things should get warmer....
