    Once upon a time there was a quilter by the name of Sue Seam Ripper she liked to make quilts for her family. She married at a young age of 18. She married Mr. Magic Ripper on April 1, 1800. They got married at her parents house by the lake surrounded by beautiful gardens.

    Sue's great grandmother name was Marsye.


    (now you add a sentence to start the story)

    So of course Sue made her own wedding ring quilt for her marriage to Magic to keep them warm for the winter.

    Even though Maryse had been really pretty when she was younger, smoking and the harshness of pioneer life had taken their toll, but to Sue she was beautiful, kind and wise.

    And Marsye sampled it right along with her cigarettes. She was tipsy, but she made some beautiful quilts!

    Children came along quickly year after year as the wedding ring quilt kept them warm and snuggly.

    Sue was climbing on the tree and fell in the water as a snake scared her.

    Marsye jumps in and brings her out of the water and then jumps back in to drown the snake.
