Red & Yellow.
#5 - Bat Wing
Hmmm. I think this block might be a bit too red for me. I'm trying to use red only as an accent here and there. In my mind's eye, I see this quilt finished with white sashing and red posts. But I'll wait until I have several more blocks to see if this one will work.
#55 - Linoleum
I have ALWAYS loved saying that word. Linoleum.
I dare you to stay in a bad mood after saying it 5 times in a row ... but you have to say it in your worst foreign accent like Eliza Dooilittle or Jimmi Hendrix or Crocodile Dundee ... Bela Lugosi works particularly well. And you have to do it in front of someone else.
They'll either think you've gone banana-nuts-crazy and start backing away slowly while looking for the nearest exit OR pee their pants laughing at you.
Either way, their reaction will prob'ly make you laugh.
Sigh. I shoulda been a therapist ... ;)
Lisa, thank you for reminding me of this! It must have been hiding in my subconcious somewhere. :)
