I started doing cross stitch to keep from eating in front of the television…

I started embroidering bookmarks, napkin holders and squares.  I got huge bags of multicoloured thread from the store I always said I would not shop at because they moved in and began putting all the Canadian versions of the same sort out of business.  They must put something in the company Kool-aid because I over heard a woman tell a sales person there that she loved her.

When it came time for the same person to help me I said, “I like you.  I can’t say I love you, yet…” and she responded, “I love you! Jesus loves you too!” 

I didn’t want to argue, she hadn’t told me where I could find the article I was looking for yet, but she was not creepy about the whole thing like some religious people are. Sometimes I think people go out of thier way to convert me.  I am constantly looking like I need to be saved I guess.   But in all fairness I invited it by trying to be funny.  Religion could cure me of my odd sense of humour. I have no doubt!

Any hoooooooooooooooo, I started to make squares with butterflies and then squares with flowers until I had a nice pile of squares.  Then came the suggestion: “Why not quilt?”

I am telling you, this is the road to addiction.  Start out with some harmless embroidery and next thing you know you are quilting!  (The other day I heard about tapestry making!)  Come to think of it, I do try to get other people interested and I’m thinking I could start to sell my patterns.  It’s not a grow op, it’s a sew op!

Or is it my salvation?  Scary!

  1. What a delightful post! You are a breath of fresh air, and you made me laugh out loud. 🙂 I needed that today — thank you. Kindest regards, Dianne B. in England

    • Thank you! I am glad I made you laugh. I checked out your blog too, way to fuel my growing addiction! Tell me, is there a Quilters Anonymous?
