Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Tis the day of the Irish :o) Are you wearing green?

My own shamrock plant is looking great and full of blooms. Mine is a descendent from DH's grandmother's plant so it has special meaning :o)

I 'should' be in a green mood but my life has still been consumed with white. Well...dirty white that is. LOL! Here's a picture of my newest WIP -

This is Charmed Flake: Survivor/Hope by Hinzeit. Yes, 'another' snowman ;o) You would think that I'd be sick of snowmen by now but that's not the case as you can see. LOL!

I love this design. It's so cute and fun to stitch. The colours are just gorgeous although I've never seen a snowman with a pink nose before... What's that about? I think the Bay Leaf fabric is now a favourite colour of mine.

So what have I been up to? Cataloguing my DMC thread. It seems that my records are a bit off. Hmmm...don't know what happened there. It feels so good to be organized though. I just need more room ;o)

Happy St. Patrick's Day. I have my green on. The dog even managed to stain himself green out in the yard, so we're GREEN!

Your shamrock sure looks great. So does your latest project - Charmed Flake.

I don't know where you got that organizing gene, but I'm sure it wasn't from me. Good job on that organization of your DMC's.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to you. I forgot to wear green so I'm prepared to get pinched!

That's a cute snowman pattern. New one to me.

I love snowman! I can't wait to see this cutie all finished.

I am not sure if you would be interested, but I am having a SAL over on my blog. It starts tomorrow and the designer is giving away one of her lovely ornament canvases as a prize. There will also be an Easter SAL that I will post info about that one on Monday.

Hope to have you join us. :)

Happy St Patrick's Day!

You know, I just realised in the late afternoon (it's 11:37pm here) that it was St Patrick's Day today and guess what? I was wearing green today, but totally not on purpose... lol :P

Hope you had a nice St. Patrick's Day, Cathey! That newest snowman sure is a cutie--is she going to be a part of the auction in November? That bay leaf fabric is very nice--may have to get some for myself :)

I MUSH get one of those shamrock plants for our apartment (since we are in a very Irish province and both being so).

Those dirty white snow banks are disappearing fast around here.
