Most quilters know that Jolly Jabber is the blog site for the Fat Quarter Shop, Kim Jolly being the online store’s owner.  A few days ago, they posted news of a fun contest and giveaway, involving the submission of a poem that should center around autumn doings.  Three prizes will be issued, gift certificates of varying amounts.  So I submitted the following:  🙂

Summer was blissful

And over so soon

But now there is autumn

And time to cocoon.

Pack away all those shorts

That seasonal chore;

Bring out your fine sweaters

And warm socks galore.

It’s now time to put

All our gardens to bed.

And get out our needles,

And fabrics and thread.

For with those cool temps

And less hours of day

Comes now time to stitch

Our cares all away.
