"I really wish I knew who had written this, I love it........
She learned to quilt on Monday, her stitches all were fine.
She forgot to thaw out dinner, so we 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 stipling's fun
What highlights! What shadows! But the laundry wasn’t done!
He 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, the crumbs on the floors.
I found a maid on Saturday, my week was now complete.
My wife can quilt the hours away; the house will still be neat.
Well, it’s already Sunday, I think I’m about to wilt, I cursed, I raved,
I ranted.... The maid has learnt to quilt!"
