Hither and Yon/#AtoZ

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.

This block used all 4 fabrics I had selected for this challenge. It’s the last block I’m making for the quilt as I will be putting it all together for the Letter Z post. The number of blocks I now have work out into an even pattern. And I even found a way to use that larger 15 inch block (Indian Squares).

 

Hither & yon is an Ozark slang that I don’t hear very often. Mostly it would’ve been something used by the old-timers back at our Community Building gathering days. We had gatherings for 4-H, The Women’s Club, Voter events, and I even had a bridal shower held at the old Manila schoolhouse that I’m referring to.

Hither & Yon block

Hither & yon is an Ozark slang that I don’t hear very often anymore. Mostly it would’ve been something used by the old-timers back at our Community Building gathering days. We had gatherings for 4-H, The Women’s Club, Voter events, and I even had a bridal shower held at the old Manila schoolhouse that I’m referring to. But to keep from rambling hither & yon, let’s keep on topic. The phrase, hither & yon would have been used to refer to a loose cow or hog that ran in all directions; in a disorganized fashion.

There are many more wonderful blogs this year that I hope you canspend a couple minutes reading. All you have to do is click here and select something that interests you. To read about the A to Z Challenge and what we are all about, click here.

Year’s Favorite/#AtoZChallenge

During the month of April, I’m participating in the Blogging From A to Z Challenge for my 4th year in a row – 3 of which are on this blog. Each day, except Sundays, there will be a post for the letter of the day as well as keeping with my personal theme of Quilts and Quotes. Feel free to leave a comment! I’d love to hear from you! Also check out the other A to Z’ers in the comment section of the Official A to Z Blog Page.

If you search ‘Favorite’ on Pinterest, you get a slew of favorites from the whole wide world. The same goes with other search engines across the Internet. The possibilities are endless. But add “Year’s” to the search and it narrows down only slightly. I could list favorite recipes, quotes (but I’m already doing that daily), spaces, clothes, movies, blogs, actors, restaurants, songs, singers and on and on and on. But for today, I’m sharing a tune from my ‘Gibson’ for my favorite girls, my beautiful daughters. I’m proud of you both and come what may, you will always be my favorites!
