Jill's St. Patrick's Day crafts recap

In case you missed these posts last year, I wanted to provide you with some pictures and links to things I made last year.  I have a crocheted shamrock hair clip tutorial to show you in a couple of days too.

I created two different shamrock patterns, one is a 4 leaf clover and the other is a 3 leaf clover.  You can chain these together for a beautiful garland.


I also made a cute crocheted Leprechaun hat that can be hung as decoration.  I've provided the updated links so you can get the pattern for yourself.

Check back later this week to see the Crocheted Leprechaun Hair Clip Tutorial.

Update from Jill

Hello again to all our wonderful followers!  I appreciate you following our blog so very much!

You might be wondering why I have been so absent from the blog lately.  Well, I want to give you an update on myself and my family.

The last couple of months have been both overwhelming and exciting.  For those of you who don't know, my husband is an Associate Minister here at a church just outside Atlanta.  Before Christmas we were contacted to consider a new ministry position in Dayton, Ohio.  We began to pray for God's direction and leading.

After the New Year, we were contacted again to see if we would be interested in considering the new Associate Ministry position.  Dayton is only an hour away from a majority of our family.  This would be the closest we have ever been to family as we are currently 8 hours away.  We were also very excited about the potential of this new job as my husband would be working directly with the Senior Minister.  The Senior Minister was our Children's Minister growing up and my husband interned under him after college.  Our families have remained close throughout the years.

In February, we traveled up to the Dayton area, looked around the community and formally interviewed for the position.  We were offered the job and are now preparing to move.

We will miss Georgia, our friends and church family here, so very much.  It truly is a bittersweet move for us.  Thankfully, we have many ways these days to stay connected and we can visit when we need some warmer weather!

As you can imagine, caring for three kids, keeping up the duties of a SAHM, organizing, packing, and figuring out what to do with our house has left little time left for both crafting and blogging.  We will be moving at the end of the school year so I have some time to get it all done, but it just seems like an unsurmountable task.

There are many big decisions for us to make before we move and trips back and forth until then.  Thankfully, I have some great projects to share with you over the next couple of months.  Please be patient with me as I navigate this big transition.  I may not be able to reply as quickly as I like to comments or emails, but I promise I will get to them.  I hope to be settled and back to some semblance of myself by the end of summer.  Until then, I will still be around and sharing a couple crafts a week.

Thank you all so much for your support of all we do and Our Seven Dwarfs!
