Dawn of As Sweet As Cinnamon asked why bloggers chose the name they did for their blogs. I have spend days reading these & there are some beauties.
Check out Cardygirls, my personal favourite as I can relate very well to the Bay City Rollers & Chooky Blue comparison. This made me laugh (I lol & kept loling!)
For me making my blog was a rush job as I so wanted to join in with Chooky Blue's 2011 Stitch A Long of the Tis The Season quilt by Natalie Bird and you have to be a blogger to do so. I played around with names but was already using quiltkitty as my email address so decided I couldn't go past that. It's a bit like being called Tracee & really wanting to be called Tessa or Mandy like the cool girls but realising in your heart that you are a Tracee. I am a Tracee & I am a Quiltkitty!
Of course I am a quilt kitty because I love everything about quilting, fabrics & threads and all my life I have had very spoilt & much loved cats. Thanks to my mum & granddad for that furry addiction. Thanks to the furboys for their quilt testing.
The Loves Life was maybe a bit of 'fake it until you make it' happening. My family has had many hard years health wise & lost many loved ones so especially after losing my mum & Aunty I wasn't loving life as much as I knew I eventually would again. It was a time of making decisions & slowly finding new directions. It still is but I can say, becoming a blogger has been one of the best things I have done this year and has lead to many laughs, great new friends & a lot of fun.
So check out Dawn's list of who is playing along & you still have today & tomorrow to join in.
Happy stitching (& reading)
