WORK OR PLAY?????

I love this picture--
It says--those were the days....
but --I often wonder in "those" days was sewing/quilting for them--play or work????
guess it depended on if you could sew well or was doing a job to repair something so you could keep working on the farm!!!!

To me--most days sewing/quilting is playing---even though it is alot of work at times--and even though I often ask myself "why am I doing this--why do I do sooo much sewing"?????
SOME would tell you that it keeps me busy --so I stay out of "trouble" and they may be right--but I do like to get into trouble once in awhile--makes for an interesting day????
Where am I going with this--AH--beats me--but lets have some fun just the same!!!!

I worked on this one side of the Patchables set today and have about half of the other side about done--so I am about half way done on the applique for the three pieces--this took nearly all day to do--did do alittle house work--but??????
Oh and some cute buttons go on each one--that will make this really "pop"!!!

Easter "fun" time----
A man was blissfully driving along the highway, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the Bunny, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of his car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. Candy, too.
      
      The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead.
      
      The driver felt guilty and began to cry.
      
      A woman driving down the same highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.
      
      "I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny and killed it. There may not be an Easter because of me. What should I do?"
      
      The woman told the man not to worry. She knew exactly what to do.
      
      She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead Bunny, and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal.
      
      Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped on down the road. 50 yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved, hopped another 50 yards and waved again!
      
      The man was astonished.
      
      He said to the woman, "What in heaven's name is in your spray can? What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny?"
      
      The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label.
      
      It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."

That's all for tonight --blogging friends--
have a great day tomorrow!!!
Hugs, Di

  1. For me quilting is play too, whenever I have to do mending I hate it, I tell my family that they are using up my talents making me do mending. I would much rather escape and do some stitching, you know useless stuff lol.
    Love your roundabout quilt, it looks lovely.
    cheers
