    i would to find out how many peom are out there relating to quilting or fabric.


    i will start with the one i have and love.

    10 GOOD REASON TO BUY FABRIC
    1 It insulates the cupboard where it is kept
    2 I participating in a contest.... The one who dies with the most fabric wins.
    3 I t keeps the economy moving- it is my duty to support cotton farmers, textile mills and fabric shops
    4 It is less expensive and more fun then psychiatric care.
    5 It keeps without refrigeration, you dont have to cook it to enjoy it, and you never have to feed it, change it, wipe its nose or walk it
    6 Because I'm worth it.
    7 Like dust.... Its good for protecting previously empty spaces in the house, like ironing boards, the laundry baskets, the spare bed
    8 Its not immoral, illegal or fattening. it calms the neves, gratifies the soul and makes me feel good.
    9 Because it was on sale.
    10 BUY it now, before your husband retires and goes with you on all your shopping expeditions

    My bathroom's full of bottle of pills
    they'll cure all kinds of aches and ills
    This ones for this, that one's for that
    Got enough pills to fill a hat
    I don't take them, not anymore
    Not since I went to the fabric store
    The colors soothe me, the fabric so grand
    while at the cutting table I stand
    I don't need a pill my sanity to keep
    I don't need a pill to help me sleep
    With my large stash I can sew at will
    There's just no time to take a pill


    written by me, about me, just now

    Addicted to Quilting

    She Learned to Quilt on MONDAY.
    Her stitches all were fine
    She forgot to make us dinner
    So we all went out to dine

    She quilted miniatures on TUESDAY
    she says they are a must
    They really were quite lovely
    But She forgot to dust

    On WEDNESDAY it was a sampler.
    She says stippling's fun
    What Highlights What Shadows!
    But The LAUNDRY was'nt done

    Nine Patches were on Thursday
    Green,Yellow,Blue and red.
    I guess she really was engrossed
    She never made the Bed.

    It was wall hangings on Friday.
    In colors she adores
    It never bothered her at all
    That crumbs were on the floor

    I found a maid on SATURDAY
    My week is now complete
    My wife can quilt the hours away
    The house will still be neat

    Well, now its only SUNDAY
    I think I,m about to wilt
    I cursed,I raved,I ranted
    Cause the Maid has learned to QUILT !

    I found this in a 1985 magazine called "Quilt World - Omni Book". I printed and post it on my wall. Would you believe the magazine was only "$1.75"


    BROKEN DISHES

    Grandmothers Flower Garden
    Holds a special Wild Rose,
    All Around The World
    No other garden knows,
    An Old Maids Puzzle surely
    But twas Clays Choice, that I know.
    Wedding Rings were shining
    On that blessed Sharon Rose.
    Now, the Log Cabin lies deserted
    Broken Dishes on the floor.
    The Wedding Ring that warmed it
    Is gone forevermore.
    A Storm At Sea, Ocean Waves
    Covered her loved one o'er,
    And the Wild Rose above er grave
    Jobs Tears will mist once more.

    Fabric

    I try to live each day
    In such a way
    That when tomorrow makes today a yesterday
    I will have woven into the fabric of my life
    Some gay design,
    Some patch of color,
    Bright, to please the eye.
    So that, in the graying years to come,
    When all the quick responsive senses dull,
    I may look back across the patterns of my past
    And, in my memory,
    Live the joys and pains
    Of all my yesterdays.
