Quilt Poem

The following was read at our September quilt guild meeting and I thought it was too funny.  I don't get much done as it is and if I follow these "rules" I'll never get anything done!

FROM 1949
Prepare yourself mentally for sewing.  Think about what you are going to do . . .Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically.  Good results are difficult when indifference predominates.

Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade.  When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing.  When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible.  Put on a clean dress.  Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals.  Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on.  If you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home, and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing.
Twinkie is checking to see if we are getting any visitors because he knows I am not neatly put together to accept visitors!
