I fell in love with green, and all the shades and hue variations of it, when I watched the Wizard of Oz. Something about the Emerald City was just way too appealing to me. When I was able to catch the musical stage production of, Wicked, in London a few summers ago, the costumes during any act that included the Emerald City were breathtaking.
I assume that's why I love St. Patrick's Day. Usually red is my favorite color, which is why I love Valentine's Day, but I guess green is one of my favorites, as well. That being said, I wanted to combine all the colors of green that I love into a St. Patrick's Day-themed embroidery.
If you would like to stitch one for yourself, you can find the pattern here.
What's your favorite color? Does your love of that color make you enjoy specific holidays or celebrations more than others?
