My Christmas Cottages from the block exchange came in the mail today!
I wanted to say an old saying that my childhood friend Bobby used to say, ” I’m happier than a three peckered billygoat.” But then I thought to myself Self, you know that is a bit crass. So I decided to look up “happier than…” sayings, and you know, they are ALL kind of crass.
Here is a little sampling of what is out there on some folk saying sites:
happier than a tornado in a trailer park
happier than a pig in s***
happier than a dead hog in the sunshine (what?? how can a dead hog be happy???)
happier than a possum at pokeberry time (hehehe I like that one)
happier than a dog with two di**s
happier than a hound dog on a bare leg
Jeeesh, you get the picture. So suffice it to say, I was as excited as a kid at Christmas!
I love them all! Everyone was so creative, and every block is unique and lovely!!!
Thank you so much Nanette and Terri for running this block exchange. It was my first ever, and I would definately do another. In fact I want to do another RIGHT NOW!! LOL
I didn’t make my block because I wanted to see what I might need to add when I received the exchange blocks. Here is my idea of what I will do with them.
I will make a little wall hanging out of these nine for my sewing room:
Then I will make my block with a blue sky and use that one and these two to make a table runner:
FUN FUN FUN!!!
later gators, Melissa
