Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a great Friday and St. Patrick's Day.  My youngest son made A/B honor roll so I will be heading out soon to see him get recognized for his work.

Since I completed this a few days ago I thought I would make a post today.  This is a freebie from Brooke's Books Publishing found here called St. Patrick's Day shamrock.  I used DMC variation 4050 and 32 ct white Belfast linen.


I also have 2 updates on some wips I haven't shown you in a while.  Here is Cirque des Cercles by Ink Circles Designs.  It is on 14 ct black aida and Carrie's Creation Thread in Bluebird.


I am also working on White Tigers and is in a Stoney Creek leaflet.  I am using 32 ct grey linen. There is a ton of color changes and blended thread but it is really looking wonderful.

I also played around with dyeing fabric.  I love this one with the blues, yellows and greens.  I found a white hibiscus flower pattern in a JCS magazine that will look great.

I am participating in Jessie Turns 29 SAL on Facebook that starts on April 15.  I don't normally have a ton of projects in rotation but I thought it would be fun this one time.  One of the things I plan to work on is this German castle (the one on the lower right corner).  I dyed some 32ct Belfast and made a mistake the first time so I redyed it a darker blue and I really am happy with it.

Thanks for letting me share.  I hope you have a great weekend.
Mary
