Little Shamrock Cross Stitch

Update to Thursday’s post.  My sister made this little pattern up for a pin of her own.  Didn’t it turn out well!

Yesterfood offered this simple shamrock pattern for St. Patrick’s Day.  You can make it into a button, pin, or card and you can whip it up in a matter of minutes.

I know I’m a day early but this will give you time to make a button to wear tomorrow if you want.

Take care and have a good weekend.

It’s snowing here again at this writing and I’m sure the skiers love skiing right into spring. If you like to ski here is a wonderful chart from DMC – In Search of Wire blog.


A skier in your life will surely love this one. The link to the PDF is just under the photo and in French reads ‘Cliquez sur ce lien pour télécharger le diagramme gratuit DMC’.

Have a fun-filled weekend.
