Tatting Limericks

Written by a bunch of nuts!




There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
So she (he) went online
To find thread oh so fine,
But the wait for snail mail was her (his) dread!
Nancy R.
Claire There once was a tatter who said,
“Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!”
Oh No, Oh No..what can I do?
Let me think, how can I bear?
Aha, how silly, it’s under the chair!!
There once was a tatter who said,
“Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!”
For such a whoops and consternation
Guess its time to use some imagination
Pattern and color change, oh my the possibilities in my head!!!
Bina
Elesa There once was a tatter who said,
“Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!”
It doesn't have to be red,
I must have some more thread
I can't really be out
Because I'm not yet dead!
There once was a tatter who said,
“Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!”
I ran to the store
I just had to buy more
But indeed, I forgot to take ‘bread.”
Betsy
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Now what will I do?
I will have to use blue
Instead of that pretty red thread.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
This is not such a disaster,
I just must move faster
To get to the store for more thread
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Now my choice is quite clear,
I must run fast from here
To the place that carries my thread.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
I said to my honey,
Just give me some money
To avoid the bad thoughts in my head
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Now the shuttle must be re-wound,
Before I can begin the next round
Not tonight as it's time for bed.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
There's no more in my stash,
I must search though the trash
In my search I will not be misled.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
I am on the verge of panic
I am just this side of manic
Be careful right now where you tread.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Please don't waste my time
On a silly old rhyme
As the dread here is widespread.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
While working on that blue bird
I said a very nice word
At which point the family just fled.
Mary
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
"I'm off to the thrift store,
To see if I can get more,
Oh why did I choose that vintage bright red?!!"
Janet
Beth There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh my gosh , I ran out of thread!"
She made a confession,
tatting was an obsession,
That simply had gone to her head.
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh my gosh , I ran out of thread!"
Her husband said: "Blast!
So you stopped it at last...
Now will you please do the dishes instead!?"
Ben
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
but my husband thought
that I had bought
enough to last 'til I'm dead.

I laughed at dh and then said,
"A tatter never has enough thread!
There are shuttles to wind
and more patterns to find;
and there's always a new color thread!
Georgia
Sally There once was a tatter who said
"Oh my gosh, I ran out of thread!
Looks like I will fail
To finish my veil,
Without it I cannot be wed!
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Not to worry, I'll just join Miss Muffet
And sit myself down on a tuffet
And spin up some webbing instead!
Fran
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I just ran out of thread!
My fingers are sore,
I can't see any more
And I'm tired - I'm going to bed!"
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I just ran out of thread!
Well, no curses, no oaths;
I'll tat. Emperor's clothes
sliding picots and knots in my head."
Katie
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh my gosh , I ran out of thread!"
It's time now to take,
Some coffee and cake,
And catch up on my emails instead.
Yvonne
Beth There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, dear, I've run out of thread!"
"So, I'll send out a line,
to e-buddies of mine,
Surely, someone will send me some thread!"
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, dear, I've run out of thread!
I've emptied my stash
And I'm all out of cash!"
And she woke up, screaming in dread!
Today was the day we all dread;
I wanted to tat, but instead
Had to go and get squished
When in fact all I wished
Was to play with my shuttles and thread.
Lily
Mary Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Woe is me
Let's see
I have Alzheimer's, dread,
Upstairs is where it's hid!"
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!
There's a lace in my shoe
And for now that must do.
Stop tatting? Not 'til I'm quite dead."
Joan
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
To the store I must dash
to build my personal stash
and never again know this dread
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
my hubby let out a loud groan
for he knew my thread would require a loan
to stop me being a pain in his head
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
She couldn't believe that she got caught
without enough to complete the creative thought
and felt certain she must be out of her head!
There once was a tatter who said,
"Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
Don't let on to the officials at NATA
For it's in great fear that I'd hafta
give back my number, she said!
Jill
There once was a tatter who said,
“Oh, my gosh, I ran out of thread!”
She went to the cat
Now how ‘bout that?
She tatted with black fur instead!
Pam
Kathy This one is a bit different, but I will include it anyway!


A tatter named Kathy was green
With envy, 'twas easily seen.
For Ben sent a verse
in English, what's worse!
To show that his wit is quite keen.
There once was as tatter in Britain,
Who tried hard to tat a nice mitten.
But something went wrong -
The picots were too long!
So now it's a toy for her kitten...
Ben
Heather There once was a tatter who said:
"Oh my gosh, I'm running out of thread!
Come what may I must finish,
Make the picots a bit thinnish,
then it may just stretch to the end."
There once was a tatter who said:
"Oh my gosh, I ran out of thread!
I'm way over budget,
I guess I must fudge it,
For I must buy some thread for the end."
There once was a tatter who said:
"Oh my gosh, I ran out of thread!"
She cried to her mother
Who said "Cry no longer,
Now you'll do real work instead."
There once was a tatter who sold
A piece she loved more than the gold.
But her sick dad was needy
Of pricey drugs speedily
For his family one last time to hold.
There once was a tatter who'd knot
More threads by far than she ought;
So her arms began aching
And she began taking
More pills than her doc ever thought.
