Maybe these should be the companion Q-

The thing I found interesting was that 2000 years ago people were trying to get favor and have a rival do less well with a curse. They are now being dug up and it tells us much about the culture of the day. I thought a funny, non serious treatment could have quilters laughing and yet remind us all that revenge and petty thoughts altho human and are non productive. Your blessings remind us of the other side of the coin

I you don't win, you miss the chance for revenge. LOL.

I think a curse well would be stress relieving. People who are rude to me I imagine all kinds of things happening to them, from a flat tire to a bad haircut. I'm not that good to believe in saying something nice about everyone.

May your lights never cast shadows on your ruler's edge without your realizing it before you cut,
May your dog never scare the "scrap" out of himself or you by stepping on your pedal when you're not looking,
May no one but you know the true quantity of your stash,
May your bare foot never be the finder of lost pins
nor your finger be mistaken for fabric by a blade,
May your backside never get bigger than your heart,
May your bindings always bind, your miters always miter, your needles always needle,
and may you find grace on your lips when someone undervalues the work of your hands.

So many of the "curses" I have already experienced!!

Plus a few I will not mention again lest I appear dumber than I think I am!

Is that a curse or a blessing?

I am beginning to see this as a QAG project. Curses on one side and blessings on the other.
