Iron Craft 7: GOLD

When I saw the challenge of gold I was at a complete loss.  What the heck am I going to make that is gold?  I mean, I am more of a silver (or white gold) girl.  But to craft gold... no idea! haha  Then I remembered the pattern for March 16, Pot O Gold.  Instead of buying plastic gold coins, I could crochet them!  I used gold super saver yarn (it's gold, not yellow, I swear!) and gold crochet thread.  So fun and sparkly!  And now I am ready for St Patrick's Day!

I am pretty sure the leprechauns had some whisky before moving this pot of gold to it's hiding place... that is why it has a few dents and dings!

At least, that leprechaun story is what I am telling myself!

Here's to all things Gold (and the Midas Touch that inspired us all)!

Here are a few pictures from our previous St Patrick's Day escapades, first 2008 and then 2010.  This year will be our fifth year (at least) of celebrating St Patricks Day together!  We do love these two!

About a week after our honeymoon... green beer with good friends!
Their first St Patrick's day as husband and wife!  :)

I just love this picture... can you tell that Matt is patronizing me? hahaha (check out Halvsies!)

Much better!
