I finished stitching the little Irish Blessing piece today. Here's what it looks like. The finishing fabric is next to it. I am not quite sure how I will finish it yet but I will post a picture of the finished product.
I ended up changing all the colors. I used two colors of DMC for the shamrocks and two colors of Kreinik #4 Braid for the "flowers." I think it looks a lot nicer my way.
