    Sewing Haikus

    Bobbin filled up
    Needle waits for it's turn now
    Magnifying glass.

    She awaits my touch
    Thread now through guides and needle
    What will be made now?


    Fabric is in place.

    Letís see.. a haiku has 3 lines, first and third have 5 syllables each, middle has 7.

    Lemme try this.


    Precisely cut cloth
    Quarter inch seam sewn with care
    Results unpredictable

    Pick out some fabric
    Measure, cut, sew, quilt, repeat
    Addictive hobby

    Needle falls to floor

    Quick, grab a band-aid

    Better at limericks than Haiku:

    There was a quilter from Bath,
    who was really quite bad at math.
    No seams had good matches,
    Her quilt's now just patches,
    Only good for a real belly laugh.

    (Don't worry, I won't give up my day job!)

    There once was a quilter named Zo
    whose was covered in scraps head to toe.
    The quilts, they got started
    But from neglect they departed
    to a pergatory called "UFO."

    These are great! I think mine might qualify as a haiku. I can't remember about the ending punctuations so I didn't.

    Dog on my lap sleeps
    Chain stitching the two inch squares
    I sigh, I smile, I'm happy.
    I don't dance with wolves; I quilt with dogs!

    Pin fabric with care
    Sew carefully together
    Press, Awww, It’s backwards.

    I guess you can tell a little bit about some of my sewing experience today.

    Darcyshannon, I was doing the same thing at the same time. Last night I left myself a lovely little pile to stitch that were to be sewn a certain way and while sleeping I forgot what I was doing. I sewed them all shut and have 7 more to take out and fix.

    I just got on this this morning
    I'm reading this stuff as a warning
    I'm taking great care
    because this is rare
    to see such good people who care

    Here are 4 more attempts at Haiku:

    The blocks are all pieced
    The bright colors are awesome
    It shall be finished.


    Make it for yourself
    You deserve it every day
    Quilts to fill your heart.


    Cut, piece, sew, oh no
    The directions are muddy
    Quilt still unfinished.


    When does a flimsy
    Become a much loved project
    From the very first stitches.


    Was never really into poetry, but hey, I am trying.

    Could not help myself
    Surprise package on the porch
    Time to explain this!

    This is what it is like when I order fabric online, and my husband sees the box before I do! Don't worry - he orders toy cars online and also gets "surprise" packages left on the porch.
