    How funny, I knew what she meant! Nanna not as in grandmother, more with a long A as in Banana, but I have no idea where it comes from.

    Mind you, I don't agree with her - anyone could open a door and not think about little pieces scattering like confetti!

    LOL, just looked it up!

    nana1
    Ķ noun Brit. informal a silly person; a fool.

    Origin
    1960s: perh. a shortening of banana.
    --------
    nana2
    (Brit. also nanna)
    Ķ noun informal one's grandmother.

    Origin
    C19: child's pronunciation of nanny or gran.

    Thanks for the info, I didnīt have any idea where it come from, thought it might be Cockney rhyming slang.

    I still don't understand why a banana equates as someone being silly, so perhaps you are right Elle. I have a little book somewhere on Cockney slang. If I find it, I will look it up. Oh, just had another thought - could it be because people would look daft if they slid on the skin?

    Maybe because monkeys eat them, & we think their antics are funny?

    We say "nanner, nanner, nanner" in a sing-songy sort of way when we are poking fun at someone (all in jest, of course - not cruel.)

    Been cutting out tiny pieces of AOTH & ironing them onto their own block! No sewing this weekend. Bought 3 new quilting magazines - my favorite one, Quilter's Home, Quilting Arts & a new one - Mark Lipinski's Fabric Trends. I'm not sure the magazine is new, but Mark's name associated with it sure is. He was the editor of Quilter' Home Magazine until about a year ago when he sort of vaporized. Now it's being edited by Jake Fitch & Melissa Maher - Melissa is the one who interviewed me for the article last issue on the inmate quilting program. They are 2 really squiffy ladies!!! Melissa, are you lurking??? She does that, you know. That's how she found me.

    Thanks Bev F. I am loving the batiks. They were given to me as a gift from a lovely lady on this board. I am working from 6" squares of baticks and have loads left had 40 of them all different shades beautiful.

    Here's my block 29. Don't mind my masking tape. Some of my blocks like to fray, so I wrap them in tape to stop that. Won't remove it til I square them up. Thought these were pretty colors to work with around Easter time. Hope everyone who celebrates has a nice Easter.

    OK...finally, here is mine! You would think this is the last block for my center, but you would be wrong. I now have to decide on which 4 of my doodle designs that I need to use for the rest of them. Anyway...on this one, I didn't add any green and really wish I had. Its ok...just not sure how great it is going to play well with the others. I used the varigated R/D thread on this one to add a little bit more to it. I've done that on a couple of others also.
