Crazy quilter's poem: contest and give-away!

Have you ever seen this poem for fishermen (and women)?


I've been thinking about a version for crazy quilters, and this is what I've come up with so far:

I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray;
When in the Lord's great nimble hands and peacefully asleep,
That in his mercy I be judged
_______________________________!

The last word should rhyme with "asleep", or "asleep" could be changed to something else that would rhyme with the last word.

Help me finish the poem and I'll choose one winner to receive either a baggie of CQ stash or a finished CQ item, winner's choice. I want to give everyone a bit of time to think about this, so let's say you need to have your suggestion to me by January 23rd (leave a comment containing your suggested ending on this post or email me directly). Kick it around your brain for awhile and let's see what you all can come up with!

I'm signed up to do a round robin with the theme of "words" and this little poem would work up perfectly....if only it gets a good ending! Thanks for your help!

When in the Lord's great nimble hands and peacefully asleep,
That in his mercy I be judged
and pulled in his loving arms for everlasting sleep.

I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day..
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray...

That when I stand before the Lord, covered in strings and all content...
I won't have to worry about being judged by all the needles that I bent.

I pray that I may
live to stitch
until my dying day.
And when it comes
to my last stitch
I then most humbly pray,
When in the Lords
great land of stash
and peacefully asleep
That in His mercy
I be judged
with all my other peeps.

I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray;
When in the Lord's great nimble hands and peacefully at rest,
That in his mercy I be judged
as a stitcher who was blessed.

Here's one Janet: I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray;
that in the Lord’s great nimble hands in Heaven I’ll reside,
And amongst the greatest stash tis known is where I will abide.

Connie said...

Her'es another attempt: I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray;
That He will find a redeeming stitch with which to justify,
My everlasting placement amongst the Heavenly stash on high.

Connie said...

Heres one more that I've been playing with. Maybe you can come up with just the right wording.
I pray that I may crazy quilt until my dying day.
And when it comes to my last stitch, I then most humbly pray;
that in the Lord’s great nimble hands in Heavenly repose,
My everlasting blessing is to be one who forever sews.

How about this:
That in his mercy I be judged as "green"
For all the recycled items out of the landfill I did keep!
