Now, this is not glum at all. In our local paper the obit of an 80 year old woman ran today. She had something like 9 children and 16 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren. The obit was obviously written by someone who knew & loved her very much. It said she suffered from an incurable disease known as "Quilt Pox." Symptoms included snuggling under handmade quilts with children & grandchildren. Attending every possible quilt show, quilting bee, quilting guild. Going to shops specializing in fabrics specifically for quilting. She was also often overheard mumbling to herself "wedding ring, mariner's star, Ohio Rose, tumbling blocks." She quilted for each of her children & grandchildren. She entered fairs. She had a wonderful & productive life. I wonder if there has ever been an obituary written including such diseases as yarn pox, knitting or crocheting pox. Maybe I'll have to do an outline for my DD for when I pass on to the great yarn shop in the sky. Where stitches never drop, there are no knots, colors flow as you desire & yarn barf is never seen. 😉

Wow that's a great way to remember the woman that past. I think I may have to have "serious" conversation with my son about what to write on my obituary 😋

I had better write mine, DH would just say I was connected with fat quarters, skeins and balls and expect everyone to know what he was talking about!

I’ve threatened to write mine partly so the things I’d like mentioned actually are and also so that the grammar and spelling are correct!

My DIL swears there were intentional mistakes in her mother’s because she had spent a lot of time writing to the editor about spelling and grammar. I don’t want to suffer a similar fate.

She was well-loved, apparently, and her work was noted well by those who received the treasures she made.
