Shamrocks Cross Stitch from Kitty and Me Designs

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, I thought I'd share my stitched piece of my Shamrocks Cross Stitch pattern with you:

I finished this up about a week ago.  The little lazy daisy stitches give it a dainty, delicate look!

I'll have to put this away for finishing in time for next year.  I can't get to either one of my sewing machines to finish it.  Once I get my own place, I'll have a lot of nice things to finish sew together!

Here's the pattern leaflet:
