ThiS HeaRT

Was made as my One Christmas Item.
To join with Narelle and the other elves...
just go HERE.

My heart was made from two colours of felt and then braided through each other and then blanket stitched around the edge.

There are two words in the English language that have all five vowels in order: 'abstemious' and 'facetious.'

The words 'racecar,' 'kayak' and 'level' are the same whether they are read left to right or right to left (palindromes).  

The sentence: 'The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog' uses every letter of the alphabet.

'Dreamt' is the only English word that ends in the letters 'mt'.

Hello Cheryll,

You are a bundle of information this morning! Love your heart. You brought back memories of typing lessons. I never did get to use the shorthand I learnt but typing correctly was one of the best things to have learnt.
Have a wonderful Sunday. I just had pancakes for breakie. I will give you the recipe.
1 mashed banana, 2 eggs. Mix together and cook. You have banana pancakes. Yum.

Happy days.
Bev.
