Thank you to everyone who helped me finish my poem. You all had great ideas, and some were so similar! Great minds think alike, obviously.
I wish I could send each of you something, but the postage might get to be a bit much for my budget. My plan was to choose as winner the one with the lines I liked best, but about half way through the contest, I came up with lines that I feel best represent my personal thoughts on the subject:
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 to the Lord's great nimble hands my spirit starts to soar,
That in His mercy I be judged a UFO no more!
I suppose it only makes sense to those of us who know what a UFO is in quilt-speak. For those who don't know, it is an Un-Finished Object.
Leslie had the finishing line that most closely matched the thought behind mine:
That in his mercy I be judged embellished enough to keep!
So I declare Leslie the winner, and she may now choose her prize: some CQ stash or a finished CQ item!
