November meeting is just two days away. Have you sent in your Show and Tell photos? We want to see! Came across this poem today, thought you might enjoy it...
Quilt Show and Tell
by Rose Kelley
I thought "Wow! These people can really sew well."
Amazing the projects as done by these folk:
Artistic, dramatic, quite outside the line,
Stunning, outrageous, and gorgeous and fine!
They'd fall right out laughing at something of mine:
the fabrics I've chosen, the markings still blue,
my edges all wavy! The group would just stare
at corners not meeting, at points sort of square,
at obvious patches and fusing to mend
the hole that I made with the seam ripper end.
that no one could figure whatever would prod
a person to make such an ungainly thing
and then dare to show it to stitchers who bring
fine art work, great classics, and projects with zing!
and no one raised one single finger to poke
fun at my fabrics, my choice of design,
and not once did anyone talk out of line!
Some even showed interest and seemed to lean near.
was not just for bragging or chances to crow.
and love of the art, and look one by one
at each quilter's projects so dear to her heart
and with all the time, love and work they impart.
and cheer on the quilter who shows her work here.
