Well, the �silly season� is upon us, with only 7 more weeks to Christmas! Aghhh I hear you scream. Yes, it�s creeping up on us very quickly. So I�ve been thinking, it�s about time the forum joined the silly season and I�m going to kick it off with this weeks �silly season activity�. I know quilters are the worlds very best problem solvers so I�m giving you a challenge. I'm inviting you to write a limerick about yourself. It doesn�t need to be too exposing or overly honest, just a bit of fun between us. Below, is my contribution, with two limericks I wrote during the week. I�ve already fessed up previously, to being a quiltaholic who can�t go a day without a needle in hand, so these limericks reflect that.

For those of you that are not sure what a limerick is here is a basic explanation for you: A limerick is a five-line poem. The rhyme pattern has lines 1, 2 and 5 rhyming or the last words sounding the same, and lines 3 and 4 rhyming or last words sounding the same.
So... here goes:

There was a quiltmaker called Judie
Who tended to get a bit moody
If she wasn�t able to stitch
Her body would shiver and twitch
And she�d end up being a bit loopy

(Judie, moody and loopy rhyme, well... sort of)
(stitch and twitch rhyme, pretty well I think!)


There was a quilter who lived in Australia
Who needed to quilt each day, without failure
With needle and thread
And a quilt in her head
She became a compulsive quilt maker!

So it�s over to you now, have a go and have some fun.

Here is my "silly season" limerick.

I began as a quilting newbie
With fabric as red as a ruby
Now my friends they all say
I can quilt in a day
Like my favorite quilter, Judie.

smirk This pretty much says it all:

There once was a granny named Soni.
As a crafter she is full of baloney.
She has tried every one;
But is master of none.
She only truly excels in matrimony!

Donna Rae, is this visit to your doctor still a 'side-effect' of the flu shot? I got my shot a week ago and, although not sick, I wish I felt better. I wish you well.

Hi Granny and thanks for the thoughts. No, the doc. appointment was for something else but I still am not up to par. Hope you feel better too. I think I am going to go to the doc. about this. Been too long now!

I will try to be sillier this time, but I still can't say much about my quilting.

There once was a quilter called Granny,
Who kept her fabric in every nook and cranny.
While looking through her stash
One cupboard came down in a crash,
And Granny landed on her well-padded fanny.

There once was a sister called Lyn
quilting and sewing just weren't her thing
she had three sisters smart
all doing their part
but not she, hers went in the bin!

Hi all.... I'm new, but I'm not new to Judie! (waves hello)

Thought I'd pop in and see what's keeping her so busy and WOW, how clever is she!!!
