Naglikpok kapic



(Update: She has seen it and she loved it. Here's the full piece)

No, I don't speak Inuktitut. But I looked up some words for this quiltie for a friend of mine (this is part of the quiltie and shows her baby pic. I wanted to add something to honor her Inuit heritage.

And what does naglikpok kapic mean, you ask.

It means she "loves coffee" -- which she does!

    .......she's going to love this Colette! ...it's awesome...I really need to see the rest of it before you hand it over.To be blessed with a sense of humour is a wonderful thing...this along with your air of mystery (broken photographs that leave us wondering what bit is missing....etc)is what sets you apart from the rest!!!

    Happy wishes.....Anon the Elder....OXOXO

    ....Thankyou Colette!....It is superb!...and I am sure it will have pride of place.Gathering information is part of the fun, before you even begin to piece things together, don't you think?I am sure you came across and made a note of lots of other words while you were on that particular mission!!!
