O'Kelley's Clovers: A New Pattern


If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook,
You have seen the progress of my mini
quilt that I started just a few days shy
of St. Patty's day.

Well, I am proud to say
that I completed the quilt just in time
for it to be displayed on our table.



And I do believe that is one of
my favorites. 
A collection of my favorite soft greens,
that always draw my
attention.

I decided to hand quilt the entire piece.
I used Aurifil 12 wt. thread in a coordinating green and white.
I couldn't be more pleased with it.


 I have noticed since quilting and playing with
colors that greens and aquas,
seem to be my go to colors.

I look into my fabric stash,
and they are filling more than the
rest of the shelves.

They seem to make my heart happy.


I want to thank the lovely ladies
that tested this mini out for me. 
I really appreciate it tremendously.



If you are looking to get a head start on your St. Patty's Day d├ęcor. 
I do believe this would make a perfect addition.


You can find the pattern HERE  
in my Craftsy Store.

A Bouquet of Daisies FInish

Last week, we had a bit of a blizzard pass through.
The kind of blizzard that causes
the power to be out.
10 plus hours to be out.
While I would have loved to hop
on my sewing machine and add
a couple more rows to the current quilt project,
Mother Nature was not going to let me.
I guess she knew I need to finish up
my crochet WIP.


So, I picked up my Bouquet of Daisies afghan,
and went to town on it.



 I was able to finish it up
and right before the electric
came back on.


Of course, I had to wait a day to take these pictures.
It doesn't look like much here, but
the drifts were quite large.







The only thing that I will miss about the snow is..
that is does make a beautiful backdrop.


The pattern for this afghan can be
found in the book Hooked on Crochet Afghans.
