Oh, Donk - this was a hard month to choose a winner. Those are some hot bags, people! Really, now.
Personally, I'm still trying to decide whether to keep or gift my Folklore Bag. I mean, what if it's part of my First Day of Spring outfit that I insist on wearing to call more attention to my incredible dorkiness?
WHAT IF, THAT?
We'll see. Anyway. Let's slowly look away from my dorkiness...
So, I see that we're celebrating St. Patrick's Day/Drink Your Face Off Even If You're Not Irish by making Irish Soda bread, and I like this concept. Because, while most everyone I know looks forward to St. Patrick's Day for the free pass on getting blazing drunk, I tend to ignore it almost completely.
I'm not Irish. I don't tend to drink a ton of beer. Getting blazing drunk usually means I get a big bastard migraine and have to take to the floor with my Imitrex.
But bread? I can do bread. And I can also do Guiness - but, like the TV tells me - only in moderation. Which means I get one beer, after I eat a lot. In this case, maybe I'll eat a lot of this bread?
Whatever - good call on the bread.
But, for those of you who take St. Patrick's Day a little too seriously (or if you have been snowboarding a lot lately) and need something to soothe your drinking (riding) muscles - this month's fabric de-stasher project is the Obi-inspired Hot & Cold Pack.
And if you didn't get the fridge de-stasher recipe, it's Kelli's version of Irish Soda Bread.
I will now begin looking forward to an apres-ski session with my Obi-pack, a Guiness and, you know, half a loaf of soda bread. Because I'm a class broad like that.
And if I happen to wrap the Obi-pack around my right knee, well, then that's what happens when you ride all day and twist yourself up in a knot to avoid trees. Also, is it possible to pull an oblique muscle? I think I pulled my right oblique. Which means I must have abs in there! Who knew? Also, yeowch. Maybe I'll wear my Obi-pack around my waist after all.
Don't forget to post your finished projects and recipes to the pool by 3/31 so that we can judge you while we're under the influence of carbs, exhaustion and alcohol.
