Starting a new thread here with Why Is It? Wednesday
Why is it we use words in day-to-day conversation and, suddenly, one just sounds weird?
Take SHAMPOO, for example. Where did that word come from? Wouldn't hair soap make more sense?
If I've aroused your interest, the answer can be found at Wikipedia ...
Please feel free to share your favorite weird words.
... and a WIP
I got this far with the baby quilt made from leftovers from Scrumptious Stars.
At this point it is about 32" x 39". Big enough to cover an infant or use in a car seat. But if I added borders, would it be more useful?
Here's what I'm considering (bear in mind I don't plan to purchase anything):
Oh the funky squares for sure! When my youngest was about 4, she told me one day that she liked my "wristlace." I asked where she came up with that word and she said (in so many words) if what is around your neck is a "necklace" then what is around your wrist should be a "wristlace." I thought it made perfect sense!ReplyDelete
I vote for the border of pink squares too. My Guy and I often have these discussions about words. Though at the moment I can't think of any of them.ReplyDelete
Much as I love orange, I actually prefer the jelly beans for the border...ReplyDelete
Love those shooflies. Almost as fun to make as monkeys!
I prefer the funky squares because the lavender in the jelly beans seems distracting compared with the colors in the blocks.ReplyDelete
I like your new word game. Where did the word Quilt come from?
Often many fabrics will "do" for a border but one makes you happier. I like the jelly beans.LeeAnnaReplyDelete
