    This is a first ... a quilted bug

    I just quilted a bug.

    I don't mean that I made a design of a bug with needle and thread.

    I mean I quilted OVER a REAL bug!!!

    Here I am quilting away ... a bug lands on my quilt just in front of the needle and ZIP ... he's stitched in the ditch. At least it was a small bug, so not a lot of "bug juice".

    Stupid bug.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    What was the last thing that went through his mind? Daaa, that would have been a needle. Sorry, that was bad!!! Sometimes I just can't help myself.

    Now that is one in a million and I bet it will never happen again. Glad he wasn't too messy.

    I used to have a whole collection of "pinned" bugs, but I've never put a needle through one! And definitely not on my quilt! LOL!

    Funny I'm always afraid I will stitch my cat's tail! He loves to be right in the way and refuses to move.

    Made me laugh!!! I quilted a sage bug between the backing (pale yellow) and batting on a quilt - didn't find out until I was checking the back before I took the quilt off my frame!!! Of course, he was in the middle of a queen sized quilt and there was no way I was going to take out that much quilting to fish him out! Smacked him with a hammer a few times and prayed he would become dust after a few months and washings!

    Oh my!! I know I would have done exactly the same thing, and I know some bad words would have accompanied the hammer strokes!!

    That's too funny! When I taught 4H, I had one girl who always sewed a dead flea in everything she made. Strange.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    That would have been too disturbing for me. What did her parents think about her doing this and my goodness why?
    Got fabric?

    too funny!! Reminds me of the spider that crawled over a quilt while I was sewing. Grabbed my little bug sucker machine and bye bye spider. Everyone has one of these, right?
