A Short Drama

Scene 1
Lis is in her sewing room applying sashing to some blocks for her sampler quilt.

Lis (shouts):  Aaagh, Al, Al, Al.
Al (rushing upstairs): What is it?
Lis:  There's blood, aaagh, blood.
Al:  Where from, what have you done?
Lis: I don't know, I'm bleeding.
Al:  Sit down sweetie, I'll get a flannel and the first aid box.
Lis:  Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.
Al:  Just sit down.
Lis:  NO!  Take the blocks and get the blood out, I'll get a plaster.

Al (mystified) exits to the bathroom with an armful of bloody fabric.

Scene 2
Sometime later, Lis is in her sewing room pressing bloodless fabric blocks..

Lis (speaking to herself):  I must blog about this, I think I might have become a real quilter!

  1. Oh Lis I had to giggle! But what did you do? Are you OK?

  2. I was cutting threads under my quilt while quilting on my regular machine, and not looking where the scissors were going... Did I mention they were new scissors... Luckily I didn't get any blood on the quilt. You are not alone!!! And Yes, we are real quilters.
