I need to keep it up away from the floor. My cat would have a field day with it if she could!!! I'm thinking I'll put it on my bedroom dresser. We are purging (read clearing out unused stuff) and the bedroom has become a clearing station! I have a small lovely piece of ceramic that was my Mom's that would set it off nicely...
I am a new subscriber, and had really not taken a close look at ALL of the forums on DG, until today….Just wanted to say hello, and tell you that the shamrocks are beautiful! I've recently started teaching myself to crochet. There is no way that I could even tackle a project like that, but I am wondering where you found the pattern for it. Truly is stunning, and it definitely caught the eye of this Irish lass! Thank you for posting the pictures. :-) Happy St. Patricks Day! ( I know it's a little early, but I enjoy celebrating the Irish most anytime ) !!!
Welcome to DG. I taught myself to crochet 40+ years ago. I got the pattern on e-bay and it was the only one of its kind available at the time.
I made a crinoline for St. Pat's day and used the same shamrock design crocheted into the hem of the skirt. Here is a pic of her unfinished. I must sew on the arms and hat and sew in the loose threads, but you get the idea.
