Comment source Wikipedia:
Saint Brigit of Kildare or Brigid of Ireland  is one of Ireland's patron saints, along with Patrick and Columba. Her feast day is 1 February, which was formerly celebrated as a pagan festival (Imbolc) marking the beginning of spring and the lambing season. 

Legend states that she created the first cross by weaving rushes she found strewn on the floor whilst praying at her father`s death bed.
