A Quilter’s Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!  Wishing you much happiness and joy during this holiday season.  For those of you who will celebrate alone this year, a special wish is coming your way for a wonderful Christmas day filled with hours of sewing fun and lots of Christmas movies!  You are never alone if you’re a quilter. We all share a common bond.

Winterthur Christmas Tree

My friend Nancy sent me this poem, and took the pictures you see on this post.  I think we can all relate!

Twas the night before Christmas,
I’m glued to the tree.
I’m wondering what Santa
brought just for me..

Could it be fat quarters
or a pattern or lace?
Or a quilt kit, I said,
with a smile on my face.

And that’s when I heard him,
"Hi Santa," I said
"You know….good little girls
should be in their beds ".

"I know I should Santa,
and now I’ve got caught.
But I was just so excited
to see what you brought."

"Well, let’s take a look
in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly,
And left with a jerk.

I heard him exclaim as he put it in gear.
"You’ve got enough stuff, I’ll see you next year!"

May Santa be good to you this year!  Merry Christmas from Bunny Hill!
