That is the question of the day. Am I late or just super early for next year? I was planning on tatting Shamrocks for St. Patrick's Day. I had all good intentions of giving a few out, one to my Mom, one for my Aunt and one for my Sister and of course one for myself. Well, I didn't make it in time. So am I late or am I early???? I have 7 Celtic Shamrocks completed, and I think I will give them out now, so I don't loose them if I wait a whole year to give them out. LOL!! Now the second problem here, well not really a problem, but I made the Shamrocks in different shades of green, and I had a hard time choosing which to keep for myself. I may have to make on in each shade, I like them all.
I wanted to thank Marilee (Yarnplayer) for posting her part of the Shamrock pattern. I think it is an awesome Shamrock. Thank you Marilee!!! Also Ruth Perry for her instructions on the Celtic center. Thank you!!
As you can see, I did each Shamrock slightly different. The lighter green is the new Lizbeth thread, Spring Green, I used a solid green center on some, that was Flora thread and the variegated thread is Manuela. I just need to add the split ring finding on the top so they can be worn as pendants. My Leprechaun, William, is having fun just laying around in his field of Shamrocks. LOL!! He is just getting back from an adventure of his own. If you want to see what William has been up to, go visit him at the Leprechaun's blog.
I guess this completes my second round of 25 Motifs. I lost count and did over the 25. Guess I'll start again. I got this round done rather quickly.
I have also tried something new. I have been so inspired by some art sites that I have been following (Bella Sinclair Doodlespot) and (Gem n I) that I thought I would try drawing. Below is one of my attempts. I had this cute birthday card and I just copied what I saw. I think I did ok for my first try. The drawing is very light, I didn't want to press real hard with the pencil, because I did a lot of erasing. LOL!
