    WILL THERE BE QUILTING IN HEAVEN

    I know my days are numbered
    But what that number is
    I cannot hazard single guess
    The knowledge solely His.

    After I have seen the light
    And left my familyís side
    I wonder, will my time include
    Soft cotton smooth and wide.

    Iíve gained much satisfaction
    From quilts Iíve made down here
    And do not wish to stop it yet
    For many a coming year.

    My cedar chest is bursting full
    But always wanting more
    Thinking many quilts ahead
    I return to local store.

    My stash, it grows and then it shrinks
    With great variety.
    I wonder will there be a source
    Of fabric there for me?

    Will Heaven have a quilting club?
    So keen I am to go
    To sit with other ladies
    And be content to sew.

    Beyond the lovely pearly gates
    If quilting there will be
    My heart will overflow with joy.
    I can hardly wait to see.

    Iím told it is a happy spot
    The Bible clearly states.
    If not I think Iíll contemplate
    A trip some other place.

    I think our stashes will stay on earth for some neady person as we will have access to ALL the fabric we could want and more I can just see miles and miles all for the picking!

    Thanks for all the nice comments.

    I sure hope there is. Just think we could all be quilting ALL DAY!! Someone could just come in and feed me so that I would not have to get up and make something. LOL.
