Thank you all so much for your suggestions and thoughts about what my website should be called. You've definitely helped me rule out some options and come up with some fun ideas.
I really had to smile at the thought of Cat in the Lap. I have photos that were taken a few days ago that are so apropos.
Why am I having such a hard time hand-quilting Slither Eek Boo? (I have a needle clenched between my lips as I try to get thread snipped, that's the reason for the funny face)
Could it be the cat in the lap?
There's a Pokey trying to keep warm:
Little cutie pie stinker.
Anyway, back to the name game. I'm not sure about Cat in the Lap Quilting because when you do a Google search on "Cat in the Lap" it comes up with a lot of results already. Not to mention, it makes me think "lap quilts."
I love the alliteration of WonkyWords. But seems like I need to get "quilts" in there too. WonkyWordQuilting??? It would be a hoot to have WonkyTown just because it could be a subdivision in Quiltville. That aside, I do more than just houses... WonkyLetters? WonkyLetterQuilts?
There there's Pokey Quilting which I had not even thought of. To me, "pokey" just means slow, dawdling, stopping to smell the roses. It's not a negative word to me and it is close to "lazy" only not as negative, in my mind.
Free Spirit is out - that's the name of a fabric company. "Freestyle Quilting" is already taken, as is "Casual Quilter." Have to keep far away from anything "Freedom" - that's way too close to the Underground Railway thing.
I still like Free-Piecing to a certain extent. I don't mind do much if people searching for free stuff stumble across me. They might mind, but that would be more hits. hee hee hee. FreePiecedQuilting???? The Free-Piecer sounds like a superhero. Dun ta da. Wheeee!
I searched on "playful quilts" and ugh, it's all kid stuff.
I've been blogging for almost 5 years now under the name Lazy Gal Quilting. So yes, my blog does come up under that search. But it IS rather close to Lazy Girl. That was one reason for moving away from that. But yes, I DO like it. I am
lazy, you guys just have no idea because you haven't been in my house.
There is a part of me that would like to have a adjective in the title that can also be applied to my style. For instance, "Lazy Letters" - but I've already noted the objections to that phrase. Wonky Letters, Free-Pieced Letters, Pokey Letters, those all work or at least the first two do.
Too Many Choices. Please, continue this conversation with me. I'm enjoying it. Plus I've put a poll over in my sidebar. Pick your favorite choice.
Someone asked awhile back why I was setting up a website, rather than just doing everything on a blog. Well, I need to be able to have a list of classes that I'm available to teach, a calendar, a place for my tutorials, and a shopping cart. Not that I'll be needing that last one until much later this year.
This is all part of my shifting from hobbyist to professional. eeeeek. I made business cards this morning. Can't believe how much work those silly things were.
My husband is out of town - again - so no more photos of me for awhile. whew. I've got to get back to my Olympics now. take care!
But wait - I'm editing this post to add another thought. I hate the rules, I hate using a ruler to actually measure (but as a straight edge for the rotary cutter it works great) - UnrulyQulting????
