    Here's another one

    Twas the Night before Christmas
    by
    Brenda Groelz, Kathy Rockbugs, Marilyn Root, Cindy Swafford

    'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,
    The only one sleeping was Quilter's dear spouse.
    The Log Cabin stockings were almost completed,
    "Just a few stitches left, "our sweet quilter repeated,
    "Then I can hang them and head to off to finish
    The pillows I'm making, fulfilling Mom's wish
    For something "quilty" to put on her couch",
    As she pricked her poor finger, our quilter yelled, "Ouch!"

    .....When from out in the kitchen there arose such a crashing,
    She sprang from her work , and she dropped all her sashing.
    Away to the doorway she flew like a plane,
    Wondering just what was happening and who she could blame.
    When what to her wondering eyes should appear,
    But Old Mrs Claus and her bag of quilt-gear....

    .....With her elves bearing gifts, through the kitchen she came,
    She directed and pointed and called them by name.
    "Now Elna, now Pfaff, now Bernina and Viking,
    The Hoffman and Mumm should be just to her liking.
    To the sewing room - there, it's just back the hall,
    Now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"

    "My Dear," said The Claus (as she liked to be called),
    There really is no need to worry at all.
    Your projects will all be completed this night,
    I'm terribly sorry we gave you a fright.
    Sit down. Have some tea. It's relaxing, you'll see.
    My friends and I've come a long way to help Thee.
    She thought she was dreaming, our Dear Quilter did,
    In fact she quite feared that she'd near' flipped her lid!
    But the flash of the needles and twist of the thread
    Soon gave her to know she had nothing to dread.

    They spoke no more words, but went straight to their sewing.
    How the work went so quickly she had no way of knowing.
    The stitches, how tiny! The corners, how straight!
    This Claus-woman's talent was awfully great.
    They finished the pillows, then started a quilt.
    Before they all knew it, the whole thing was built!...

    Now old Mrs. Claus, she knew quilters real well,
    And she knew they'd need help on this night most of all
    So she said to our quilter, "Just move over, dear,
    I've brought my own needle. We'll get done, never fear.
    I told dear old Santa about what quilters do.
    How they plan all these projects but have other work too.
    So he taught me his magic for doing things fast.
    There, that pillow's done. Now this is the last."

    They tidied their thread snips, and picked up the scraps
    And chased our dear quilters six cats from their laps.
    They left behind gingerbread (just to be nice)
    And the whole house smelled sweetly of Christmas and spice.
    As they scurried away with their thimbles still gleaming
    Dear Mrs. Claus paused, her cap ribbons streaming.
    "Merry Christmas, my dear, now just have a ball!
    Relax and enjoy. Happy Quilting to all!"
