Green with Anticipation

One of my favorite holidays is fast approaching. Many people think of St. Patty's Day as a drinking holiday... green beer, Irish carbombs, Irish whiskey, the likes. I'm not a drinker, an occasional cold beer on a summer evening with dinner or a glass of wine while enjoying a yummy Italian meal is about the extent of my drinking adventures these days. There are other very enjoyable elements to the green holiday. Delicious corned beef and cabbage, shepherds pie, Irish scones. Yummy!! I also love all of the decorations of the holiday.
I just made Regan some adorable St. Patty's Day ribbon barrettes. I hope she will leave them in her hair. She's not great about wearing hats or leaving in fun hair accessories. She doesn't really have much hair yet so it's hard to keep a lot of hair bows in anyways.

I also picked up some adorable shamrock and ladybug fabric to make some ruffle pants. Maybe I'll make those up this next 4-day. I have a great pattern for the most adorable pants with big ol' ruffles on the bottom and they are so quick to make. The fabric is also very glittery!

Now I'm on the lookout for the perfect embroidery design for her tshirt. If time allows I would also like to make her a smock top to wear with her pants. So many things I could do if  "time would allow".

  1. I hear you on"If time will allow." If only there was more time in everyday maybe I could accomplish even half of what I'd like to get done! The hair ribbons are very cute. I love the ladybug material, it will make cute riffle pants.
