Irish Blessing No. 1 - A New Pattern

Well, I actually finished this ahead of schedule and couldn't wait til Monday to show you so I decided to post it now.
 This is my new pattern "Irish Blessing No. 1"


It combines stitchery and patchwork. A special thank you to my friend and talented stitching assistant, April Taylor for her stitching.


This was a really fun pattern to make and I love how it looks on the 12" x 14" table stand.

I have the pattern, table stands,

Valdani 3 Strand Colorfast floss kits

and Fabric kits

available in the SHOP.

I think this would make such a nice housewarming gift, wedding gift or just a fun gift for a special friend. You could even make it into a pillow if you want.


Sending love and hugs to my mom, Ellen, and my adopted mom's Sylvia, Inga and Kris for a very happy Mother's Day! Love you all very much.

A happy Mother's Day to all my blog friends too!
xx,
Michelle and the Bunnies
