of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
When something is catawampus (ka-tuh-wom-pus) or cattywampus (kat-ee-wom-pus), it is said to be in disarray, not lined up properly, a mess, or skewed. I prefer to use cattywampus because it starts with cat and it is the state my cats leave my desk in when they decide to explore!
This quilt is actually quite intricate and challenging to make, but it looks catawampus, because the lines go this way and that way. Lovely, isn't it?
I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
