St Paddy's Day Fail

Months ago, Daddio filled up this bucket with paper pieces for my March table runner.

I've been literally sewing holes in my finger trying to get it done in time to grace my St Patrick's Day table.

Yesterday I started pulling out the paper pieces and assembling the thing.

 As I was piecing it, I didn't pay close attention to any measurements so I was hoping it would all work out.

The good news is that the pieces all fit together. The bad news was that I didn't have any orange thread.

The nearest store that I can get thread is too far away to make a trip anytime soon so I finished the green and called it a day. It won't be on the table for the corned beef and cabbage but after a few green beers who's going to care?
May you always have...
Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire. 

 Happy St Patrick's Day!
