Wednesday’s Words

Quilting is Murder!

No, that’s not a statement of fact, or even what I’m feeling right now.  It’s a web-site/newsletter/blog where one can follow a quilting mystery story, do a weekly quilt shop-hop, get a weekly block pattern, win some prizes, learn about some fascinating people (real ones), and just have fun. 

(If clicking on this image doesn’t link, try the link on my side-bar)

This past week, the questions was asked: what are the Top Ten ways that quilters pass on.  Here’s the list they published:

  • Keeling over a warm machine (Life can't get any better than this....)
  • Fondling Fabric (Over Stimulation)
  • Drooling Over Patterns (Dehydration)
  • Getting electrocuted by a faulty machine (suspicious handiwork by an unknown!!)
  • Pins & needles dipped in Poison dart frog's toxic secretions by "unknown".
  • Buried alive by the fabric stash she had on shelves that collapsed in her basement (Suffocation)
  • LQS had 50% off all in stock fabric to make room for new fabrics being introduced at Quilt Market. (Trampled)
  • Abducted by UFOs (unfinished objects), never to be seen again. :-)
  • "Bobbin" in and out of consciousness, in a tangle of twisted threads. (Strangled)
  • box of stash staged to drop on her as she sews (a head injury)
  • Dying while dyeing. (poisoning, asphyxiation or drowning)
  • Bled to death from a bad cut on the wrist from a rotary cutter.
  • Death from fumes from ironing with tainted spray starch.
  • Never took a break from determination to finish that quilt that's been sitting on the shelf for years. (Starvation).

I guess if we have to go, wouldn’t it be nice to go doing something we love!

Happy mysteries!   Blessings, Peg

  1. I don't know where your Onomatopoeia post went (guessing that's a post for another time?), but that was a word my father used to try to get me to spell. now that I see it written out, I know I never spelled it correctly.
