By leaving your email within your comment, I can find you. I realize that this is sometimes a scary thing to do with scams and all but if you disguise the email as say.....

this is the perfect way to hide from the unwanted eye. So please help me out if you are one of the non-responders.

Mini Wednesday

The Navy is my last Armed Services block. I will be adding some neat additions to the overall theme in the weeks to come.
This block's color scheme was too fun because I got to use several landscaping fabrics from my stash.
Interesting fact #1 If  Naval personnel area assigned to submarine duty, they are asked to do so first due to claustrophobia concerns and the technical nature of service.  

Interesting fact #2 Bravo Zulu means "Well Done!"

Interesting fact #3 Bell Bottom trousers worn by naval personnel, can be used as a life preserver by knotting the legs and swinging them over the head to fill the lets with air.

I know it's hard to see but above are the letters, in reverse, I'll be placing around the ship.

Interesting fact #4 Scuttlebutt is the Navy tern for "rumor!"


Here are all five blocks. I'm so happy with them all. Now onward!!!

Great work. I enjoyed the Navy trivia too. I have a friend who was a submariner. He spent most of his Naval career on a sub. Me? I am too claustrophobic to do that.

Yeah Navy!! That was the branch "we" were in. Great job, Wanda.

Love this block and the info you shared. Who would have thought bell bottomed trousers would have a dual purpose? Cool!! I'm pretty sure I would not want to be on a sub. I'm not claustrophobic, but I don't think I'd like to spend that much time under water.
