(this inspires me to complete my Farmer's Wife quilt top!)
How did you choose the name for your blog? Were there any other names you considered and can you share any of them with us?
I thought for weeks about the name for my blog. I was already blogging (I'm too embarrassed to tell you what that name was!), had been for about five months and had nine followers! I was still finding my niche, but was loving the contact I was establishing with other quilters around the world, so I wanted a name which would attract like minded people.
I am a school teacher by profession and believe words are very powerful. So for weeks I played around with words associated with "patchwork". (In Australia, patchwork is a word that fits all types of piecing, not just, as it is in other parts of the world, simple square piecing.) So I thought about the 'work' part and somehow it's opposite 'play' fitted together so well. Occasionally on my blog I talk about more playful aspects of my life- my cycling or what I see when I'm out walking.
Now that you are recognized by PatchworknPlay, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
I love my blog name! I would never consider changing it. I think it still sums up my life so well- work gets in the way sometimes and I don't always have time for fabric play..... Besides, what else would I call my husband- Mr PnP suits him perfectly!
