Addicted to Quilting

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 wasn't 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 !

Thanks, Dena, for letting me share.
I thought my husband was going to fall off the chair he was laughing so hard!

Good job in cleaning up the typos. I didn't notice them until after I cut, pasted, and posted it to my blog. LOL

I love the Batik bags you have a picture of on your blog. What pattern did you use? Those are great!

Oh, too funny! I really like the bags in your header too. They are beautful.

Dena, I need to add that the small tote is an Indygo Junction pattern, which can be found at the site I listed.
