    This can be great fun.
    The person who finishes the limerick starts the next one.
    Copy/paste and add your line.
    Lets see if this takes off….

    Here we go 🙂
    I have so many patterns already….

    I have so many patterns already
    To make clothes for Janie and Freddie
    I ought to get started
    But I can’t bear to be parted

    I ought to get started
    But I can’t bear to be parted from Teddy
    who is crying oh so steady.

    I had a hard time tying in that last line.
    A new one

    I wish I could sew but can not

    Ah, I see we have a Limerick newbie who’s not familiar with the form. Here’s a sciencey example:

    There once was a young lady named bright
    Whose speed was much faster than light
    She set out one day
    In a relative way
    And returned on the previous night.

    So ours above should go:

    I have so many patterns already
    To make clothes for Janie and Freddie
    I ought to get started
    But I can’t bear to be parted
    From Teddy who’s crying so steady.

    Got it? On to the next one, and shall we agree to keep them suitable for all audiences? More of a challenge, that way.

    I wish I could sew but can not
    My children want supper, what rot!
    I just want to stitch

    I wish I could sew but can not
    My children want supper, what rot!
    I just want to stitch
    (and perhaps to be rich)

    But such skills are for free, I forgot.

    Making costumes for free is such fun
