I finished sewing the gingham dress on Sunday but I as most know can not leave something plain Jane or the way a pattern tells me to do. I have to add something to make it a little more special or a little more me.

I had tons of green yoyos sitting around and about 1 year ago I made short garlands out of them. Well yesterday I decided that they are not very useful in short lengths so I joined them all together to make this one very long garland that is over 14 yards in length. Now to figure out where to hang it for the holidays and hey it would work for St. Patricks day too.

A while back I posted about making shamrocks from penny’s hearts. You can either use her heart pattern or make real sweet little ones with the yoyo heart templates made by clover; either way you still have plenty of time to make some before St. Patrick’s day.

You can make a shamrock green brooch or a shamrock shaped pin out of Penny’s hearts; just don’t forget to shrink her pattern down or it will be huge. Or have lots of fun and combine the two ideas and make something new.

>I have made a few garlands the last few days and they are in the store. I am still making Valentine’s and Thanksgiving; then I will go on to Halloween and Mother’s Day. Those hearts for the Valentine one are taking me a little bit more time to make. All of the garlands are a little longer than 2 yards a piece.
Currently there are:

As of this morning, there are seven garlands in the store in the St Patrick’s Day area. They are a little over 2 yards long; about 2 yards and 3 to 4 inches. They are made using three different size yoyos in shades of green and yellow. The green for St. Patrick’s Day, and the yellow is for Leprechaun gold. There, of course, is less yellow because the Leprechauns don’t want to share and hide it under the green of Ireland. OK, I am being silly now.
