Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone!  I thought you might get a little smile out of this poem...

Twas the night before Christmas,
And the quilts were not made.
The threads were all tangled,
the cookies delayed.
The stocking 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 & 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!

Merry Christmas!

Just a quick reminder of our Christmas Social/Turkey Dinner on Tuesday Dec. 9th.  Social hour begins at 5p.m. with dinner served at 6. Following that will be Show and Tell and some wonderful entertainment, and we are aiming to be done by 8p.m. That should get us all home safely before the impending storm begins to become problematic. If there are any major changes in the storm forecast, check here for updates, but as of now, it's all systems GO!
