Happy St. Patrick's Day

Last week Paulette (Plum Street Samplers) offered up this sweet freebie for St. Patrick's Day. I had fun stitching and finishing this pillow. I even added a green heart button on the bottom of the pillow and a shamrock and beads as a little extra bling.
got luck?
stitched on coffee dyed 28 ct. fabric
stitched with Crescent Colours Khaki Mocha Erin Go Emerald and Four-Leaf Clover

Terry helped pick out the backing fabric and and the cording. I think he did a great job *smile*

Are you wearing your green today? My Dad, Chris and Monica are joining us for dinner. We're having corned beef, yukon potatoes oven roasted with thyme, garlic and olive oil, corn, hearty bread and of course some Guinness. Hope you have a great day!

I hope you find your Joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for little finishes ...
