Luck of the Irish, Going Green

I packed my Valentine decorations away. And out came the GREEN for St. Patrick's Day.  I really like green, my Kitchen is green, well the wallpaper is ivy.
I made this table runner 2 years ago. This is on my dinning room table.
I didn't have anything for my kitchen table, and I like having something ROUND.
I crochet this.I saw something like this on EBAY  Liked it  but this one is alot bigger.
My table top is getting all those water and heat marks. :( But then it's so old, gives it character)  lol
I normally crochet doilies and table cloths with thread but when I saw this in yarn I thought hmmm why not. It reminded me of crocheting the ripple afghans I did years ago. No real pattern. make a circle as big as you want and them make your ripples. I like how the ruffles lay.
These kitchen towels I made last year
This year I made these printable frames. They have different printables for every occasion. How cute are these and so simple  I found  them on "PINTEREST" ( my new addiction)
Also on PINTEREST I found tulle wreaths
I didn't want to make the same ribbon wreath as I did for Valentines. ( which I also found on PINTEREST) I wanted something different. 
I bought the small foam wreath  I think it was 8 inches. (the wreath really grows) 
I used the tulle in spools and cute them 16 inches. ( Hobby Lobby has the tulle on spools on sale this week 50% off).  Just tied them in a knot. I did use 3 shades of green and white. I like it but wish it was darker. If I ever make another I would use all dark .This was really super easy and fast. Had it done in less than 2 hours.
Putting it all together

I love the long table runner...it would look great on my table. I guess I better pull out the green fabrics from the "stash".
Good job on being so early with your decorations.

What a lot of great ideas and they look fabulous. I like the idea of sewing for a theme and doing several different things. I will have to get myself organised :)
The wreath looks gorgeous and it sounds so simple to make.I might have to give that a go. Maybe for Christmas. Thanks for all the ideas.

O Susan -
Everything is so beautiful. You really put your heart & soul into your projects & it certainly shows.

Anybody would be honored to sit at that beautiful table & enjoy your fiber art.
