  3. That's lovely! Years ago, I taught myself to crochet well enough to do doilies. I have forgotten all I know, and am not sure I'd have the patience for it now.

  8. Delightful, Mum. I'm still green with envy over the _Irish Hands_
    book. The doily is perfecto, too bad you didn't buy the shamrock
    teapot, that time. I still can't find a rolling pin, anywhere. Now I'll have to make my shamrock sugar cookies after St. Patrick's.
    I leave you w' a blessing.

    "May those who love us, love us.
    And those that don't love us,
    May God turn their hearts,
    And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
    May He turn their ankles,
    So we'll know them by their limping."
