Shamrocks and Rainbows on St. Patty's Day!


Wishing you rainbows and shamrocks on St. Patty's Day!


Beautiful crocheted shamrock pattern can be found here on Bobbie Lewin's blog. Her St. Patty's Day gift to all of us! It is easy and only takes minutes! Thank you Bobbie!

My first hand made shamrock! It might not be perfect as I am so new to crochet, but I love it to pieces!!  

When you click over to visit the tutorial, the first thing you will see is her brilliant and beautiful Celtic garland, a commissioned piece for a shop customer. Even if you don't crochet, do pop over to see her delicate Celtic knots rendered in crochet!

Bobbi's shop is also well worth a visit - more sweet and oh so pretty garlands you will not want to miss - including a shamrock garland!!

Happy St. Patty's Day everyone!
