Although my maiden name is Kelly, I'm only a little bit Irish. Virginia has just a touch. I'm not sure how much but it's got to be less than an eighth. It is the one nationality that Harv and I have in common though. Ginny's also Polish, German, English, Danish, Slovenian and I believe Dutch but don't quote me on that one. I think at this point we can just call her American.
I miraculously found enough time to make her a little St. Patrick's Day outfit today. The romper is a Citronille pattern I've made a couple of times already. I couldn't waste any time preparing a new pattern, or even this pattern in a larger size which is a bit of a bummer since she'll be too big for this soon. But that's ok, I think it was worth it. I just winged the bonnet pattern, based on measurements from a store bought bonnet we have. And the inspiration for the entire endeavor, the socks, came from my sister Lauren.
We're not having our corned beef and cabbage until tomorrow night so Ginny will get a little more wear out of this get up.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
