Sailor Mouth Swap
Nicke also made me a really cool pin cushion. It feels like a bean bag and has yummy frayed edges (I love frayed edges!!).
She also sent me some green and red Summersville fabric which I love! Nicke did a great job of stalking me as she sent me the most perfect swap package ever!
In her note she said she didn't go too filthy with the words and though I am married to a sailor [therefore I have heard my fair share of BAAAAAD words], I think that what she embroidered on the bag is perfect for me as I don't actually swear a lot. "Nagging Machine", as described in the book Jackspeak - A Guide to British Naval Slang and Usage by Rick Jolly and Tugg is a nickname for 'the missus', but obviously the phrase describes me to a tee! I am just that!
This swap group was a lot of fun to be in and some of the things sent and received were soooo naughty they would have made a sailor blush I'm sure. Check out the Flickr group photos for some of the filthy and colourful language used on pretty things like pillows and pouches! Too funny. And oh so naughty! Round 2 is coming soon so be sure to be in it - you will giggle [and blush] for sure!
Thank you Nicke - you are a star!!!
