Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’m not normally quite so patriotic in fact you have to go back to my Great-Grandmother to find my Irish roots, however I simply could not resist this oh so cute pattern from my favourite cross stitch designers The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery.

Lucky - St Patricks Day

I mean how could I not resist?? It has rainbows and kawaii clouds! As always with their patterns it was easy to download and get started. My poor eyes did take some getting used to working on metallic on 28ct evenweave, but it was totally worth the cursing and unpicking as I’m so pleased with how it turned out.

I think we will keep this up all year round in the hope that it brings us some luck, we could certainly do with a lotto win! :D

Groves Ltd sent me some new embroidery hoops to try, and this large green one is the perfect colour for a frame! (For stockists email them at groves@stockistenquiries.co.uk). However I simply love how the Pumpkins have framed theirs and am thinking I will have to do the same! You can find the pattern here.
