Then of course we have JFK. ”…ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” Is it possible??? ”…ask not what your longarmer can do for you, ask what you can do for your longarmer.”
Lincoln's “Four score and seven years ago…” Abe could have easily been talking about when he started the quilt he was holding up and Show &Tell.
We all know Mr. Twain’s “The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.” was changed when he realized not everyone was a quilter. At first it read…”The best way to cheer yourself up is to make a quilt and then pass on the quilt and cheer someone else up.”
When General MacArthur claimed after waking. ”In my dreams I hear again the breaking of a needle, the rattle of an empty bobbin, the strange, mournful mutter of the sewing room.” Well he was General MacArthur so it was recorded,” In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield."
We can’t omit the genius of Albert Einstein. We’ve been told he said, “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” We all know it started out, A person who never made a mistake never tried quilting.” I mean really…anything new?
We all know Marilyn Monroe has been quoted as saying, “I’m trying to find myself. Sometimes that’s not easy.” Apparently, the individual recording the quote had a bad connection and missed the rest of it.” when I’m in my stash room.”
That sounds just about right.
Well time to go. Stay tuned I never know what's next.
Quilt till you wilt...we do.
Ladies and gentelmen, Elvis has left the sewing room.
