MY SOUL IS FED BY NEEDLE AND THREAD

Top 'o the Morning (sorry afternoon) to Ya!

Having a touch of the 'celt' in me and going weak at the knees when I hear Irish pipes and also being as it is time for this month's giveaway I thought we would try for all things GREEN....
There is  lovely green fabric and threads, some spearmint and peppermint tea, some green M&M's (coconut flavoured), a lovely hand made card from my clever bestie Ann, a tiny green tube of lotion and I thought as my pattern covers are always green a pattern is included. I have chosen a tote bag pattern as they are always a green choice over a plastic one. So there you have it.....March Irish Madness Giveaway 
Just leave me a comment to be in the draw. I shall draw it next Tuesday 19th March, 2012.
In case you were thinking that I had gone off my trolley and decided to roam endlessly around the countryside I can tell you I have done some stitching. I have sewn the binding on "Teaparty Angel" ready to stitch down. This poor project seems to have been around for so long in various stages of construction without getting completed. I really do love it and I just didn't want to rush it just to get it done hence still deciding on the suffolk puffs.....
I love this 'rosey' fabric....it looks so delicate. The photo doesn't do it justice.
I also have a little sneaky peek to show...yes I know another one. I have been very busy doing things which will appear later in the year in my favourite magazine Country Threads so I am trying to keep you all in suspenders for awhile longer. Sorry!
I have to say I have loved doing this wee project as it features applique and embroidery and was a joy to stitch.....I love it when that happens. I now have to try and put it all together in a pleasing manner...hmmm!

Hope you enjoyed the sneaky peek.
Lastly, a just because I love it photo of a sweet tag my friend Tracey painted for me a while ago which inspires me when I look at it and reminds me 'Home no matter how humble is lovely place to be'

Blessings Michelle xx

  14. Thought I had got the date wrong seeing the heading.. thought it was St Pat's day. A few days to go. Never visited Ireland and I'm from the UK but DD1 did Irish dancing for 10 years does that count for anything? Have a great day

  18. Gorgeous giveaway Michelle, please count me in for your Green March giveaway. Actually it's turned into a sad day for us as a very very close family friend (like a Father) passed away on St. Pats day 7 years ago.
