Quilt With Us

One Stitch at a Time

Friendships are made one stitch at a time.
A feeling of comfort so hard to define,
like a fine old quilt is soft and warm,
friendships enfold and then conform.
Friendships surround, yet set us free
so each person can be what she must be.
Together they grow and soon both find
that friendships are made one stitch at a time.

Donna, of course you can use One Stitch at a Time on your bookmarks for the quilting retreat. Just please use my copyright, name, and website along with the poem if you have room to do so. Thanks for sharing my work with others!

Linda, thanks for the purse and book order. I trust you received my email about the contents of the book Crazy Patch. I really should put all the quilting poems in one book, but, unfortunately, they are scattered through several. I'm sure I don't have enough for a whole book of quilting poems. I guess I'm going to have to work on writing some more!

Ruth, I am going on a quilting retreat in October and would love to make all the participants a bookmark. Could I use this poem on the bookmark?

Well Ruth just went to your website and realized that you do have books so guess what going to order the one for quilters. Think it would be great.

How lovely Ruth. Thanks for sharing. You need to do a book of all your poetry - one especially for quilters.
