"Let's Roll" is a powerful phrase....and who ever broke into Patsy and Ernie's car in Corbin, KY didn't realize they were messing with an elite group of extremely well armed Quilters....rob one of us....you've robbed all of us.
I can only imagine the darkness that is going on in the person or person's life that broke into their car and stole a laptop, quilts, embroidery machine, threads and notions. I do hope that something good comes out of this situation....now that's my honest wishes. Y'all know I"m not a mean spirited person....but I do enjoy partaking in my dark side on occasion. In the photo above, you may be looking at what might happen to the robbers if I were into Voodoo...ROFL. It just ain't so smart to be messing with middle aged women who has rotary cutters, hot irons and a host of other very dangerous sharp objects. They just might find themselves used as an applique and pressed down very hard upon with a very hot iron....then zig zag stitched all around their borders (naked borders) ya know what I mean?
One guess would be, they are very disappointed in their haul because it isn't exactly easy to sell a quilt that was made by someone else....and quilters are so connected that someone will see it and the "cat will be out of the bag" so to speak.
I once heard that if you are ever out of town and need help...don't dial 911....call a Quilter...you are much more likely to get the help you need. I laughed when I heard that but you know....it's probably very true.
When you think about it...and if everyone within a 5 state radius of KY checked their Craigslist listings for Embroidery Machine and Babylock Ellismo to see if possibly there are any new listings....we might be able to locate Patsy's machine. I did enter a google alert for Craigslist and both Babylock Elissimo and Embroidery Machine. I'm not sure if that will work or not...but I figured it was worth a try.
Patsy's work is so unique it won't be difficult to spot so if we all keep our eyes and ears open...ya just never know what may happen.
I'm telling you it just isn't smart to go messing with a Quilter!!
