Hello March and all that you bring us. The hope of Spring as the plants and trees begin to bud with new life. Daffodils are sprouting forth from the ground and the blossoms are unfurling to show their bright burst of beautiful yellow.
For us here in the United States we have St. Patrick's day to celebrate on March 17th. We eat and drink green colored food and beer. We color our rivers with green in honor of the day. We wear green clothing.
We look for Leprechauns and rainbows and the ever-elusive pot of gold.
We love four leaf clovers and shamrocks. I have made a shamrock-like pin to wear so that I don't get pinched that day. Okay, maybe no one would actually pinch me anymore but a girl can still pretend. I used a beautiful green fabric to make some heart shaped yo-yo's. I mounted them to green wool felt. I used a green dyed shell bead for the stem and some 6.0 seed beads to embellish my pin. I shall be wearing this when I meet my girlfriends for lunch on March 17th.
This month begins with a Monday and that is always a challenge for many. I endured the post office today and got some important things sent off to their destinations. It feels good to begin a new month with a list that I can actually check off as having completed.
I shall soon share another project I am working on.
What are you working on that you would like to complete this month?
