Stash Manicure invited The Curious Quilter Glee Club to ‘perform’ today. Come join in the silly-business. Hop on over to frolic along with the Glee Club as they sing a tune inspired by The Sound of Music. While you are there, let Rae Ann know you enjoy the Stash Manicure site.
NOTE 2/2012: Stash Manicure has evolved into Sew We Quilt, and the archive containing this CQ Glee Club song is no longer there. Because we all love to sing, I have inserted the original post from Stash Manicure into this page. This is still one of my favorite Glee Club tunes:
The Hills are Alive…
…With the Sound of The Curious Quilter Glee Club!

A big hello from Mary, The Curious Quilter! I know, I was just here this month, sharing with all my friends at Stash Manicure. But this time, I am not alone. I brought the chorus. (Well, in my head at least!) And I hope that all of you will join The Curious Quilter Glee Club!
As founder of the Glee Club, I thought Stash Manicure needed its own special song. Apparently so did Rae Ann, as she invited us. Perhaps we will visit YOUR blog one day too! If you are not familiar with our Glee Club Anthem, or the soon-to-be-classic Sew, Sew, Sew Your Stash, click on over and check them out.
Please join in the singing loudly, so Rae Ann can hear us all the way to Utah! I bet most of you know the tune, but it is a little tricky. Dancing along just might help, with visions of Julie Andrews sewing kid’s play clothes from curtains.
My Manicured Stash
Sung to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music
Shelves full of patterns, and boxes of toppers.
Huge bags of batting hide secrets of shoppers.
All of my treasures, they’re my special cache,
And now I find myself buried in stash!
I feel no guilt.
I love to quilt,
Love to stitch and press.
But now that I’ve gathered
More things than I need,
I’m starting to feel…
(even more dancing)
Armies of thread spools line up on my table.
Rulers and bobbins lie ready and able.
Stacking by color, by value, by dyes…
I’m going to sew my stash way down in size!
One thing I know,
Now I must sew,
Threads must fly like fur.
I’ll sew quilts straight through
From beginning to end,
And have a Stash
WELL DONE! APPLAUSE TO YOU ALL!! Thanks to Rae Ann for inviting me back. Rock on!

- My friends out on the East Coast at Delaware Quilts are inviting quilters to make some very special miniature quilts. They are working with the Alzheimer’s Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI) on a very special project for the November International Quilt Festival. Marge at DQ is working to gather 100 little quilts before August 15, 2010, each no larger than 9 by 12 inches. These will be forwarded to the AAQI for use in a fundraiser. If you submit a qualifying quilt, you could win one of two $50.00 gift certificates. Get all of the nitty-gritty details here, and have fun sewing a nifty mini-quilt for a great cause. Let Marge know that The Curious Quilter sent you!
