Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

A story

Two nuns, Sister Margaret and Sister Jennifer, are traveling
Through Europe in their car.. They get to Transylvania and are
stopped at a traffic light. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a tiny
little Dracula jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses through
the windshield.

'Quick, quick!' shouts Sister Margaret. 'What shall we do?'

'Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the
abomination,' says Sister Jennifer.

Sister Margaret switches them on, knocking Dracula about, but he
clings on and continues hissing at the nuns..

'What shall I do now?' she shouts.

'Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water
at the Vatican,' says Sister Jennifer.

Sister Margaret turns on the windshield washer. Dracula screams
as the water burns his skin, but he clings on and continues
hissing at the nuns.

'Now what?' shouts Sister Margaret.

'Show him your cross,' says Sister Jennifer.

'Now you're talking,' says Sister Margaret. She opens the window and shouts, 'Get the fuck off the car, you little bastard!!!'

And her is the small quilt I just finished being held by my Darling Husband. Isn't he a handsome man? I started with some 9 patches I had made up, and kept using up the last bits and bobs of anything I had with gold or tan. It turned out surprisingly pleasant to look at, and it will keep some kid somewhere nice and cozy.

    Beautiful little quilt. I like the idea of some kid somewhere huddled under the love. Aren't husbands handy to have around?

    too funny! Brian laughed out loud when I read this to him. He's Catholic (sort of) and he loves Nun jokes. The quilt is fabulous.

    Nice-- I love it! (I love the 'cross' story too! I show my cross far too many times!)

    Oh R.
    I laughed so hard. This is my kind of Sister.

    And your quilts. I imagine some kiddo curled up under one, with only sweet dreams finally easing his mind.
    Do you put a prayer and a blessing inside as you quilt them?
