For day 10 of the 2016 A-Z Challenge we have:
verb - to unlawfully or without regard for traffic walk along the street or in the road
noun - a person who does the above
origin - early 20th century from the amalgamation of the word 'jay' a silly person and 'walk'
I didn't even search for any jaywalker charts, instead just limited my search to the beautiful jay bird:
Blue Jay by Stoney Creek
Jay Fairy by Lena Lawson Needlearts
Stellar Jay by David Bartholet (HAED)
My personal Js are:
Jane - my middle name. It's the name my family have always and still know me by and which I used until I went to university, after which I began using Rachel instead (or as well). I like having two names and, surprisingly, no-one gets confused!!
I had to work at shoe-horning in a J project as (apart from January, June and July Lizzie Kate monthly stamps which I didn't want to show) I haven't done anything J related. So here is a dragon with some jewels which I know a lot of you liked when I stitched him last year:
My Treasure by Dragon Dreams Inc
He was one of my DSDUCJFC 2015 pieces and definitely one of my favourites. I enjoyed every stitch from start to finish, including the Kreinik and the rather stiff lurex fabric!
See you tomorrow with K.
