All of the digitizers on this board are amazing.  I wish I had the patience! 

In preparation for St Patrick's Day, I made a couple of pillow covers for my couch.  I'm not big into Sunbonnet Sue, but these designs were too pretty to resist.

Irish Sue step dancing.  In the thistles?  What's up with that?

Irish Fred step dancing.

Irish 'blessing' of a sort.  It is a metaphor for as Graced says "It really IS a blessing when somebody reveals their true colors from a bit of a distance (and before they get close enough to really hurt you!)!!!"

All three are made with designs from the Embroidery Library.

Those look really good, especially with the green borders around the designs.

Those are beautiful!  I love the twist on Sunbonnet Sue!
