An Irish Blessing

Thursday, January 29, 2015

I finally got a project put together. When I first started cross stitching, I wanted to make something that supported my Irish heritage. So I found a pattern and made The Irish Blessing. It has sat folded up in my bedroom for about 2 years now. So I finally took the initiative to pick out a frame and get a mat made for it. It turned out awesome!

I was also told an awesome Irish drinking toast yesterday when I picked up my matting. It goes a little something like this, in case you want to use it for St. Patrick's Day...

May your glass be ever full,
May the roof over your head be always strong,
And may you be in Heaven half an hour before the Devil knows you're dead.

Anyway, I've been working on a Christmas gift... yes I didn't get my Christmas gift done before Christmas. I hate when you have mess ups. Trying to pull out cross stitches are seriously no fun.

But other than my little boo boo, I think it's coming along pretty well... I just have a bit more to go. Hopefully I'll get it done before next Christmas!


  1. That's awesome! I bet you spent a lot of time making that. It looks great! :)

  2. I love these! I used to cross stitch when I was younger but I haven't done it in so long.

  3. Love that framed Irish blessing! So cute.

  4. It wouldn't have taken that long if I knew what I was doing. I was still learning. But I do find it pretty relaxing. Thanks Janelle!

  5. Thanks Shannon! I love cross stitching. It's so neat to see it come together.

  6. Thanks Amanda! I thought the frame fit it perfectly!
