Favorite Things

Do you sometimes think of your favorite things?  Does the Sound of Music song float through your mind at times?

Fellow blogger and quilter M-R watched the movie recently and came up with her list of Favorite Things, set to the tune:

My Favourite (Quilty) Things
Quilt blocks, design walls and all-cotton batting,
Rotary cutters and warm woolen feltings, 
Brown paper challenges tied up with strings, 
These are a few of my favourite things.

Cream coloured fabrics and self-healing mats, 
Workshops and courses and quarters so fat!
Wild geese that fly through our quilts and hangings, 
These are a few of my favourite things.

Women in white gloves at huge Quilt Show bashes
Fabrics that stay in our purses and stashes,
Warm quilting nights that melt into mornings, 
These are a few of my favourite things.

When the cutter bites,
When the pin stings,
When I’m feeling sad,
I simply remember my favourite things, 
And then I don’t feel so bad.

It’s too bad our sewing rooms don’t usually leave us enough room to dance like Maria, while we sing this song!

But I’m sure lots of us will be singing it, at least to ourselves, while we enjoy one of our favorite pastimes!

Happy favorites!                    Blessings, Peg


  1. Ha! Cute!
    The Sound of Music is one of my favorite things... I got my kids into it too when they were 7-12 years old... ;)

  2. Peg that was such a fun post. Thank you for sharing. Check out my post for today as I have a piece of art by Penny Sisto a guilting artist I know from her residency at Nazareth Campus.
