I like to celebrate special days by creating designs for them, too. This year's, as you already know, is the Leprechaun Lamb above.
Earlier, I created a St Patrick as part of my Saints Series. All of my saints are inspired by some combination of research I have done, the art of iconography, and art of the very early Middle Ages.
Somewhere between St Patrick and the Leprechaun Lamb, I created this little sampler. You can't tell from the photo (I really MUST get a better camera, but (a) I'm cheap like that, and (b) I wouldn't even know where to start!) but this design is stitched on green iridescent Aida, and it's very sparkly in real life.
Do you have any favorite St Patrick's Day designs you have stitched, or want to stitch?
Spring is coming here! I have seen snowdrops for the past month or more, and now the crocuses, and soon the daffodils! Also, a flowering hawthorn is coming into bloom. It seems like it has been a long winter. I should have produced more stitching, I think, but maybe a lighter heart and lighter weather will spur me on!
Happy St Patrick's Day everyone!
