St Patrick's Day will be here soon so I thought I'd do a take on the "Keep Calm" Posters.


The Shamrock is in metallic thread (I don't know why I use metallic thread I hate the stuff!)

Hooray for Paddy's Day.  Even though it is in the middle of Lent you have to raise a glass in honour of the day.  I also hate metallic thread but it does give a nice effect.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Metallic thread is so evil but it is so wonderful! Great stitching!

Love the highlight of the metallic shamrck.  Smiley  Great piece!  St Pat's doesn't get enough cross stitch love in my opinion!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Thanks for the comments - glad to see I'm not the only one who suffers at the hands of metallic thread!
