Lucky St. Patrick's Day to You~~

Lucky for me......It started out looking like this...hmmm.....decisions, decisions.... do you sometimes wonder how things will end up looking when finished??? I know I do....




Hares' Lucky Day
Plum Street Samplers
DMC flosses on 36 ct linen


And then poof!~~ some trim, buttons and a snippet of fabric seemed to inspire me... I was happy to run across this celtic looking button.... Dont you just love how Paulette Stewart of Plum Street Samplers continues to inspire us all???

Eat Your Carrots

The Sampler Girl

Celery & Haystack GAST, Pistachio WDW, Pumpkin Harvest CC

And, not to push St. Patrick's Day out of the way too quickly...and while the creative juices were flowing... I spotted pins, the tinest of seed beads and rick-rack for this little Easter pinkeep to evolve... The Sampler Girl's "Eat Your Carrots" design energized me to finish him off also....

Happy St. Patricks Day to you all and may you have the luckiest day ever~~ ((**Faye**))
