Because I'm crazy, that's why.

One of the things I love about going to Celebrations is pawing through other people's cast-off patterns and stitching supplies, and this year was no exception.  You've seen one of my finds already - Bent Creek's "Catch the Day" - and I'm currently stitching away on another Bent Creek, "Black Sheep" (this one I found complete with flosses, just had to find some fabric in my stash!).  No clue what I'll do with it when it is finished, but it is cute and makes me happy.  And isn't that the point?
But anyway.  One of the other booklets I picked up was "Stitch with Sudberry: Samplers II."  Now, for the most part, these aren't really my style...
...but I was drawn to the wording on the small clock pattern (pictured twice here, right under the booklet title - I'm sorry I couldn't find a better picture at the moment).  It says, "sharing makes us a kinder, gentler people," and it is a rather Quaker-esque design, with vines and a little couple at the bottom.  However, I have no intention of stitching this as a clock face.  So I've been hunting about for a pattern/part of a pattern that I can fit into the center.  And I've found a few possibilities from some old Gift of Stitching magazines...because I'm crazy....

That is a great saying - Can't wait to see how you stitch this up.
