Did you know... The real St. Patrick was born in Great Britain but grew up in Ireland. For 40 years, he preached the gospel and built many churches. He died on March 17, 461 AD in Saul, Ireland where his first church was built. The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not held in Ireland but in New York City. Held in 1762, Irish soldiers serving in the English military marched through the streets.
To celebrate St Paddy's day I made a new 12 inch MiNi. I was away when I organised the swap and wasn't sure if I would get the time to make a MiNi then mail it off on time so I didn't play along. But I knew I wanted one so I got busy and made this...
This little leprechaun sits on my foyer table so all who enter can receive their fair share of "good luck". I hope it works for the lottery on Monday...lol !
I made this runner last year (I think)... with appliqued "Shamrocks".My brother and I worked on th MiNi design while away in February and I'm pleased with how it turned out, so I hope he is too!
Now I'm off to find my MiNi label... misplaced it somewhere in my cubbyhole...ooppss... perhaps I need some LuCK!
