Happy St. Patrick's Day!


My last name is Irish McIrishy so I always look forward to St. Patty's and tucking into a corned beef dinner. Any holiday that comes with good food is a good holiday to celebrate, right? 

(I also had my one Shamrock Shake for the year yesterday but I'm prettttttttty sure that has nothing to do with being Irish. lol)


I only have the one little stitchy done up for the holiday though. :(
At least, not until I finish up the items in my 'in progress pile'....


 I HAVE DONE SO MANY NEW PIECES LATELY! LOOK AT THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!
THERE ARE SEVEN THERE. SEVEN.

 I haven't been knitting lately so I keep blazing through these little charts like WOAH. I'm trying to be good and 'finish-finish' them at the same time so they just don't hang around either. I need to get busy cord-making, ribbon-making and stuffing now and this new batch will be DONE.

Also, this happened for Valentine's Day last month:

I can't say that the husband is really 'into' having his own cross stitch piece gifted to him but I thought it was cute. :)

Nice finishes! Good for you for finishing finishing as you go too. So the knitting has gone by the wayside for now? For me it's the opposite. For now. lol! Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Wow.. you really have been stitching up a storm. So many cute pieces. That bacon Valentine is really perfect to give to a guy so your DH should definitely appreciate it!

Cole said...

Haha! That is the cutest finish! Is it Lizzie*Kate? I love it :)

I love your bacon and eggs piece and I really like how you finished it. What a super lot of smalls that you have stitched up! Could you share which greens you used for the Got Luck? piece?

Nice stitching and can;t wait to see how you finish the other 7. What is the name of the design that's finished? It's unique and I do love St. Patrick's Day too.
Of course I'm just a wee bit Irish too and the whole family came over and celebrated with a Corned Beef (X2) dinner this evening followed with fun for the young ones.

Your little finishes are a feast for the eyes, its so lovely to see a variety of seasons all together. The eggs and bacon finish is so cute, my hubby would have loved that.

Oh you have been stitching away Melanie! Cute stuff! The bacon and eggs are so funny.

No Irish blood in me, but I had my favorite green sweater on yesterday anyway! Your new Got Luck finish is so cute, Melanie--looks so nice and springy, too! And just look at all those finishes--wow!! I do think the one you made for your husband is adorable. I made something for my husband a few years ago for Valentine's Day and I think he felt the same way that yours did :) "Cute, but what do I do with it?!!"

Hope your snow has melted and spring is on the way--just a couple more days until we can finally say goodbye to this wicked winter :)

Awwww.....very cute.

Today is an organizing day for me and hopefully I'll be back to stitching by tomorrow at the latest!

Your smalls have inspired me!
