Happy St. Patrick’s Day, with some “Irish” Crochet

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!!

I am quite surprised I didn’t share these bits of lace last year when I made them.  But, in my defense, they were for my Daughter’s wedding, so I imagine I was pretty busy with that.

I love this piece. I still have a bunch of the little shamrocks around here somewhere . . .

They look like Sweethearts. 😀

These aren't very good photos.  I can see now why I didn't post them.  And I totally forgot to get one good photo of the flower girl's basket!

I found a diagram of this lace edging on the internet. Wish I had ‘pinned it’ to a board on my Pinterest.


Once I figured out the diagram, this lace was not too difficult to make. I was quite impressed with myself. lol


I hope you all are enjoying St. Patrick’s Day!  Here’s wishing my Daughter and Son-in-law a very Happy Anniversary as well.  They were married one year ago, today!

If anyone is interested in knowing where I got the patterns for the lace or shamrocks, leave a comment and I will see if I can dig them up.  Somewhere . . .

    Everything you do is beautiful! I struggle with choosing yarns or thread. Did you use crochet thread for the shamrocks?
