The April A to Z Blog Challenge is an annual blogging event in which participants blog every day (except Sundays) one post for each letter of the alphabet for the entire month. My theme for the year will be “Quilts and Ozark Slang.” So gitchur cuppa coffee or sodapop, grab a pilluh, and sit a spell.
The Mosaic X block is pretty straight-forward in its appearance as a letter. I like it probably the most just because of the early childhood teacher in me. And I mean how could you go wrong by making a quilt of X’s for some little one who likes pirates for instance? Or an X’s & O’s combination also comes to mind for a Valentine’s Day gift. Of course, there’s always the idea of using up your scrap stash of light and dark fabrics for some colorful X’s in a quilt. Which would you prefer??
Ozark slang expletive moments
When I was growing up, anyone heard rattling off an expletive (curse word) or sassin’ (back-talking) their elders might have been met with some sayings like these:
- You’re achin’ for a breakin’
- You’re cruisin’ for a bruisin’
- You’re itchin’ for a lickin’
- Watch your mouth!
- You’d best not let me hear that again!
- Tan your hide
- Go git me a switch
- I’ll fix your wagon (meaning your attitude is about to get put in its place)
