Treasure Island

Christmas Treasure

There is nothing I’d like more
Than a quilt at Christmas time
Snuggly warm and comforting
It’s the best gift one could find

The designs are so unique
The colors are of every hue
I would love to have a fancy quilt
And I’ll bet you’d like one too

So many techniques are employed
Much skill and style are used
If one sent a cheerful quilt
It would never be refused

It’s so special when a friend
Or a loved one makes you one
Little bits and pieces sewn
It’s warm and also fun

So if I get a quilt this year
I will cherish it forever
I will feel the love in every stitch
It will be my Christmas treasure!

    My wife used to have a wooden quilting frame. More important than the quilt was her four of five friends who would sit around it for hours working on it, talking and sharing. Lots more went into those quilts than scraps of fabric. Smaller quits on hand-held frames have been made for each grandchild. Even in our modern world there are some things that still cannot be store-bought. Thanks for the reminder of their vaule. Merry Christmas.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
