    The house is so quiet
    I spend hours at my machine.

    Working at the job
    Daydreaming about the quilt
    Clock's hands not moving.

    What was that bad sound?
    Remove the bobbin cover
    Another thread nest.

    just my luck I guess.

    It runs slower now
    Do I stop and oil it up?
    Risk oil on fabric?

    I like these haiku
    but I am not good at them.
    Leave them to Leon.

    The only place that housework comes before quilting is in the dictionary.

    A limerick for Leon:


    There was an old quilter named Leon
    Who liked sewing machines to be on
    While sewing and tinkering
    He did lots of thinkering.
    Folks said his brain glowed like neon.

    Dishes sit in the sink
    Dirty laundry piling up
    But me, I'm quilting.

    Quilt on the guest bed,
    On the walls, on the sofa,
    Quilts placed everywhere.

    Step back and look, it's just right
    Oh No! Darn that cat.

    Stripes match perfectly
    Sew, pray, press the seam open,
    Smile, not today Jack.
