Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:3-4

Irish Cutie

Hi friends! I made up a little freebie for my mom last week. My mom is really into her Irishness. (She is 25% Irish.) And she has become a crazy cat lady, so what better gift for her than an Irish Cutie?
This looks like their cat named Cutie. ;) You can find this freebie HERE.  I have had this pattern printed off for years now. This seemed perfect! And I gave it to her on Sunday. She loves it!!! She always tells me she is so proud of me and my talents. tee hee! It is nice to have appreciative recipients.
This was stitched two over two on 28ct Light Teal Green Meran linen using DMC. I got the sweet shamrock fabric at JoAnn for the back.

This is my little St. Patrick's Day/March display this year.
I received some pink fabric for the Pink Tumbler Charm Quilt from our friend Carol.
I also received some pink fabric from our friend Frances. You can see she tucked in a sweet chart too.
Thank you again Carol and Frances! You ladies are helping me get closer to making that Epic Pink Quilt!! I now need 142 different pink fabrics.
EDIT: I bought some more new pink fabric. I now need 106! Yay!

I have finished reading Numbers and am now reading Deuteronomy. Every day! :)

I can actually see tiny bits of green trying to come up in a few spots out in the garden. All the snow is gone from our yard. Yay!

I hope you have a good day my friends! I am so glad you stopped by.

Stitching and praying,
Vickie

Your mom will love that cute black kitty, Vickie! I stitched him myself a few years ago--a nice quick piece to stitch and finish :)

So glad I could help out with your quilt project--if I find any more pinks in my stash, I will let you know!

I am 100% Irish, so the 17th was a busy day for me! Cooking corned beef and cabbage, making Irish Soda Bread! I pulled fabric and thread to make an Irish themed project... but... for next year! Your ornie for your Mom was so cute! Nicely done! I still plan to send pink fabby... You're gonna get that quilt done! Hugs!
