Saint Patrick's Ornament, French Cross Stitch, and a Shadowbox.


Just stopping by to share a little ornament I finished last week.

This is a design from Lizzie Kate. It was fast and fun to stitch.

I hardly have any Saint Patrick's decor. Every year I try to get a little something, but nothing at the stores tickles my fancy.  I need to make a couple more ornaments, or maybe a little Irish clothespin doll.

For now, that will have to do. Got a succulent inside, and some split peas.

I have a couple more things to share.
First, this lovely French pattern. I got it around Christmas.

So pretty! You can get at The French Needle online store.

I can't wait to make something using these patterns! I am just crazy about French designs.

And this is a shadowbox I got at Home Goods a while ago.
I picked some cute thing I had to display in it.
The bobbin lace butterfly is from Brazil, as the little doily. My Mom made the doily many years ago.
The origami dress was made by me, I love it!
The Flower Fairies postcard I got for Brenda's 5th birthday party. Just so sweet!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Love your little St Patrick's Day finish, it fits right into your gorgeous display!

  2. Your St. Patrick's Day finish is darling, Ana Paula. I don't have much for St. Patrick's Day either--need to work on some more little pillows.

    Love the pretty shadow box--how wonderful to have your mom's work showcased in it :)

    Enjoy your weekend and that pretty French chart!
