If you are like me, you have that blue box (upper left)  marked for unread messages.  If no one has posted anything since you were last there, it won't show because you have read it.  Click on the down arrow on the blue box and go to High Interest and it will show up again.  You're welcome.

'Twas the night before Christmas
And the quilts were not made.
The threads were all tangled, the cookies delayed.
The stockings weren't hung, the pantry was bare.
The poor weary Quilter was tearing her hair.
Stacks of fat quarters tipped over in streams.
Visions of Log Cabins had turned into dreams.
When what to her wondering eyes should appear,
But a bus full of quilters with all of their gear.
They went straight to work with just a few mutters,
Sorting and stitching and brandishing cutters.
The Patterns emerged from all of the clutter,
Like magic the fabrics arranged in a flutter.
Log Cabins, Lone Stars, Flying Geese and Bear Tracks,
Each quilt was a beauty-even the backs.
Her house how it twinkled, her quilts how they glowed.
The cookies were baking, the stockings were sewed.
Their work was all done so they folded their frames
And packed up their needles, without giving their names.
They boarded the bus and checked the next address.
More quilts to be made, another quilter in distress.
She heard one voice echo as they drove out of sight,
Happy quilting to all and to all a good night!

cute!!! Thanks for sharing!

Here it is, I found it.  It's time to move back here since the retreat chatter seems to have stopped.  I'm so tired, I have one more day of a retreat I'm attending here locally.  It's at a church camp and luckily I'm 10-15 minutes from home so I come home at night to sleep in my own bed and my own pillow.  You know what these church camp beds are like.  I feel sorry for those ladies that have to stay there because it's too far for them to go home.


Enjoy your retreat Carolyn. What are you working on?
