This week, Mary is here from Needled Mom. She lives in southern California and once in a while, especially when Mark and I are spending a week at the coast of central California, we talk about how we should get together for a quilting weekend. At the very least, we should get together and meet each other!
Mary, how did you choose the name for your blog?
Okay....let's see. How did I choose a name for my blog? I didn't even know what blogging was six years ago when a friend of mine mentioned her blog and told me I should start one so that we could "keep up with each other". She lives in Maine and called herself "Midlife Mom". We joked about me calling myself "Needled Mom" since I loved to sew and had worked my career as a nurse - think shots here!!! Anyway, it stuck and she helped me start my blog. Talk about clueless! I had to learn all of those cute little phrases such as HSTs, FQ, SIL, LOL, etc., etc., etc., but what a wonderful experience it has been. I have met some of the most talented, friendly and helpful people through blogging and been inspired beyond my wildest dreams.
I can't imagine changing my name now that I am known by it, but maybe I should be "Needled Grandma" since we have 26 grandchildren. Seriously, I am happy with what I am as it IS what I am - a mom and a lover of anything that has to do with needles.
Easter is just around the corner. Isn't this one of the most amazing things you have ever seen?
Thanks for playing along this week, Mary. We must get together sometime soon.
