Poems!

I found this lovely poem about machine quilting today.  I HATE machine quilting, it really stresses me out.  This poem sums up my fears exactly!

FOOT NOTE
This foot was made for walking.
But not on my machine!
It turns out the weirdest quilting
That I have ever seen!
It sews along quite nicely,
I stop holding my breath,
Then it does a little dance step
And scares me half tio death!
I see a section of stitches
Too small for ripping out,
Then a leap and then a skip —
What is this all about?
A seam on top? The batting?
Am I doing something wrong?
I didn’t dream that machine quilting
Would ever take this long.
The answer’s out there somewhere,
I’ll seek till I understand,
But until I get it sorted out
I just must quilt by hand!
