OK this is an easy one today:
Que sera sera:
exclamation - an understanding that future events are out of our control
translation - from Spanish and translated as 'what it will be will be'
origin- the first written recordings are in the 16th century when English noblemen started using it as their family motto. The Spanish "Que Sera Sera" can be found on a tombstone dating 1559 whilst the similar Italian version "Che Sera Sera" on one dated 1555. The first use the phrase in literature appears in Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus published in 1604 in which he used the Italian spelling with the translation "what will be, shall be".
Que Sera, Sera - a song written by Jay Livingstone and Ray Evans in 1956 for the musical The Man Who Knew Too Much. It won an Oscar in 1957 for the Best Original Song and was later popularised by Doris Day in 1964. Each verse follows the singer as a young girl, young adult and mother through time as she looks to and questions what the future will hold with the inevitable answer "que sera, sera, whatever will be, will be". The song has featured in many films and been recorded by numerous artists over the last 60 years. And now that I have written about it I can't get it out of my head! Here's a link if you want it in your head all day too!
OK, how difficult was it going to be to find charts that reflected que sera sera? Not that difficult actually!

My personal Ks are:
'k'non-existent - I can't think of any!
And my finished K project chosen was:
This little chappy was stitched at a time when DMC were having trouble with the continuity of their greys. Luckily, as he contains a lot of blended stitches, I was able to fudge a bit by using Anchor threads as well. Apart from his knee, it's not noticeable. Since then, whenever starting a project, I have always made sure I have enough of each colour to complete the whole thing. Something inside me no longer trusts colour continuity between batches.
Back with an obvious L tomorrow.
