my good friend

she learned to quilt on Monday her stitches were all very fine
she forgot to thaw out dinner, so out they went 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 that stippling is fun
what highlights, what shadows, but laundry wasn't done

her charm quilt was on Thursday, green, red, yellow, blue
I guess she really was engrossed, she never made the bed

it was a wall hanging Friday, in colours she adores
but she never seemed to notice the crumbs on all the floors

Kate Strachan - 29.12.1943 - 18.11.2010

Kate was an extraordinary woman, she will be missed from our quilting group and from our lives. She was my friend.
