The poor man has a quilter for a wife, but I bet she enjoys her life!!!!!!

She Learned to Quilt on MONDAY.
Her stitches all were fine
She forgot to make us dinner
So we all went out to dine

She quilted miniatures on TUESDAY
she says they are a must
They really were quite lovely
But She forgot to dust

On WEDNESDAY it was a sampler.
She says stippling's fun
What Highlights What Shadows!
But The LAUNDRY wasn’t done

Nine Patches were on Thursday
Green, Yellow, Blue and red.
I guess she really was engrossed
she never made the Bed.

It was wall hangings on Friday.
In colours she adores
It never bothered her at all
That crumbs were on the floor

I found a maid on SATURDAY
My week is now complete
My wife can quilt the hours away
The house will still be neat

Well, now it’s only SUNDAY
I think I’m about to wilt
I cursed, I raved, I ranted
Cause the Maid has learned to QUILT !


  1. WOW!! Your poems are so much like the ones my Dad wrote so many years ago, for any special occasion. I need a maid too. Raining here in NZ, some places need it, others have had enough. What is your weather now?? Cheers from jkean.
