And a Very Merry Merry...

This is a “Lump of Coal” sachet.
Thought this one up while reading a posting at Craftster
Someone had posted a problem with ungrateful relatives at Christmas time, expecting expensive presents. This is my answer to that problem. About 9 stitches wide by 22 rows, all single crochet. Fold in half and stitch 2 sides shut. Fill toe of old pantyhose with cedar chips or potpourri (to keep filling from working through the stitches), stuff inside pocket and stitch last side of pocket shut.
So many people have no appreciation for the time and energy that goes into making a gift. There are certain individuals in my life that could give a crumbled cookie about me, although they pretend otherwise or sometimes don’t even bother to pretend. The funny part is, i think that they wouldn’t “get it” if i did give them the lump of coal sachet. Actually, they might really use it! Oh well, all I can do is try to give them a poke in the eye, but not use my finger…
