It's the perfect time of year for a Shamrock Crochet Coaster, but this is for bringing luck all year long. Did you ever search through patches of clover as a child looking for that unique four-leaf clover?
I remember when my mom saw me searching through a patch and said, 'Looks like we need to spray the lawn for weeds again."
I was so upset when I found out clover is often seen as a weed that takes over lawns. In my childhood mind, I loved imaging owning a yard that is utterly clover one day.
And guess what? I kinda do lol.
The front area of my lawn if so full of clover and it doesn't bother me. We are not aggressive with lawn chemicals and I actually like the color and softness of the clover over the rough crabgrass.
And I do find myself occasionally looking for that rare genetic mutation for a four-leaf clover.
While the three leaves of a shamrock stand for faith, hope, and love, the fourth leaf is often viewed as luck.
I hope luck finds you, and this crochet coaster is a reminder to appreciate all the luck that comes your way.
