O is for



We all know that octopi (more than one octopus) have eight arms, but did you know that they have three hearts!?!  Maybe having all that love in their hearts is the reason they have eight arms – that’s just my theory!  Octopi have no bones, so need to live in the water to keep their shape.

O is also for Opening.  This is not quilting related, except maybe when you want to open the packaging for that new quilting tool:


Happy easy opening!             Blessings, Peg


  1. Okay, that's just brilliant! Now I have to go and buy something in one of those stupid un-openable packages and give this a try.

  2. Cute octopus! Good idea about opening those packs - I'm always leery of cutting myself! Will definitely try a can opener next time.

  3. I hate packaging! Great idea

  4. Great tip on the packing. I've cut my fingers a time or two trying to get packages opened. Very irritating.


  5. Did you know that "octopi" is not technically the correct pluralization of octopus? Since the word originated from Greek and not Latin, the etymological plural is actually "octopodes." But, since it is now regarded as common English, "octopuses" is considered the most correct. Just some trivia for the day. :)
