Ye Olde Irish Love sampler

Ye Olde Irish Love sampler

designed by Feathers in the Nest

copyright 2011

This morning I awoke with my Irish eyes o' smiling as its bright and sunny outside and I completely slept through the night!!  So with my tea this morning, I played with this design and thought I'd share for all those who like to stitch up some smalls for St. Paddy's Day or if you're Irish and love your heritage for all year!

My favorite color is pink so I thought this would compliment the green well. I have a pink mother-of-pearl pendant that I got last year on Ebay from someone who went to Ireland and just didn't want it anymore and selling it. That's called the Luck of the Irish, for me as it was sterling silver and a great deal/oh, so pretty heart.

I'm imagining this cool as a pillowkeep or pinkeep for a basket, backed with Shamrock fabric.

Suggested colors are:

Crescent Colors cotton (CC)  Secondhand Rose (pink)

CC Antique Lace (very light shade)

CC Steamed Broccoli (green)

Suggested count:

your favorite

Suggested linen:

Irish linen, of course, in Antique white


P.S. Please remember pattern not for sale, duplicated only by needle and accredited to Feathers in the Nest designs. Thanks so much!
