Holy Mud! Biscornu



Just finished another biscornu designed by Barbara Ana Designs. I really loved the colours here : chocolate with blues and pinks. This biscornu reminded me of a nursery rhyme I learned when I was in Cyprus in 1974 .
"ime ena gourounaki
vromiko poli
oli mera mes tin laspi
piso stin avli
ta ala zoakia den me pezoune
prepi na kano banio
Banio? Ego? Pote
kalitera na mino vromiko
oli mera mes tn laspi
piso stin avli."
Which roughly translates to: I am a very muddy/dirty pig, I spend all day in the mud in the back yard. The other animals dont want to play with me , I have to have a bath. Me? a Bath? I'd rather stay dirty all day in the back yard.

As a child I thought this to be a very cute rhyme but I guess it could reflect the saying :"As happy as a pig in the mud" which is used to signify someone who is very happy. Or even a deeper meaning , that everyone should find happiness in their true self.

Michelle, this is SO your fault. I loved that Biscornu so much that I had to go to the Barbara Ana Designs via your clickable link and that led me to another link where I purchased 4 charts and I'm supposed to be on a stash diet bigtime. Your fault - but him who must NOT be obeyed will never find out! hehehehe Thank you so much it is stitched beautifully and put together with your usual perfection. Lots of Love Patti xxx
