But I have a good reason!
The Sampler Girl has this cute freebie. It's not for me, though. SO's family LOVES St. Patrick's Day. Not so far that they spend all day drinking green beer, but they decorate. Me not so much. I like the history aspect of it. I like learning about Ireland. I just don't like leprachauns. I have a really beautiful book from my grandmother's teaching days, that was illustrated by Garth Williams (guy that did Little House on the Prairie drawings), all about elves and fairies, but his leprachaun drawings are so shivery creepy, and I loved that book so young, that I don't like leprachauns. I don't like their little shoes. They just creep me out. So I don't do much St. Patrick's Day stitching, because there are too many chances to run into a leprachaun.
But this freebie is nice. I thought I could do a door hanger for SO's mom, and then maybe do a pocket for his sister and her kids. Put some leprachaun coin chocolates in there, that would be good! SO was like, "You have to take it to them." He says I have to be the one to give them the gift. I cannot do that. I am too . . .well, too shy, darn it . . . and I worry that the recipient won't like it. I know that's a silly fear, because SO's mom LOVED the sampler and wanted me to sign it (I didn't want to), but it's a fear I have. I buy enough stuff at yard sales to see that people do give this stuff away. Not that I think they would, but that's always in the back of my mind.
Anyway . . . this is super-cute! It shouldn't take me too long to do it three or 4 times. I have the fabric. I am sure I have the floss, LOL. I just have to venture out in that cold garage.
