    t'was a few weeks before Christmas and in my head was a plan
    To make all of my Christmas gifts by my own hand.
    Away to my scrap box in a flashI did fly.
    with patterns in my head and a twinkle in my eye.

    I cut and I sewed as merry as an elf.
    Making things for others and not for myself.
    A quilted vest for a teenage niece.
    Quilts for the grandparents with love sewn in each piece.

    Quilted covers for aunt's tabletops.
    Away I go with hardly a stop.
    On scissors,on needles, on thimbles and thread,
    Oh, hurry I must, for Christmas day is ahead.

    A quilted diaper bag for the baby so new.
    I may even quilt Santa a coat before I'm through,
    Quilted bedspreads for Mother and Sis.
    I still have a few left on my list.

    Cushions with quilted tops and potholders done.
    It's now Christmas Eve and I have a gift for each one.
    So I sprang to my Volks wagon and quite a clatter.
    The neighbors ran to the windows to see what was the matter.

    From one house to the other, I leaped like a dear.
    Leaving my presents and hopefully cheer.
    With best wishes to each for a Christmas so bright.
    A tired, happy quilter drove away in the night.


    Merry Christmas to ALL!!!!!!!
    From Bebe
