Just finished this one for Tasha for another upcoming holiday.
St. Patrick's Shamrocks
I am running out of adjectives to tell you how much I enjoy seeing the wonderful things you make. Just gorgeous!!!!
Thanks Barb, just nice to know you are looking! If you know anyone who might be interested you know where to find me!
BTW, did you ever get the sewing stool? Would love to see a pic.

Yes, I did get it. Thought my angels would fit good there but the bucket is too small. I must find another spot for them. I'll try to get a picure today of Mom's sewing bucket...
Did you have success in starching the wings yourself, I keep forgetting to ask.
How about putting it on a footstool?
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....
Sounds like a nice spot. Good idea to keep those angels away from the kitty! I bet she would have a nice big ball of yarn when finished!!! and with the starch likely stuck to her nose!
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.
She is going to be so sweet. I just love to see what you make Candee.
No crinolines for me - I'll take a quilt to wrap up in!!!!! But, oh, how I love your work.....
Thank you so much, your sweet words about my efforts just warm my heart.
Thanks for the nice comment there tlm1. Nice to have you here in needle arts.
