I'm so glad Molly is here because I have a fun little story to share first. Mark and I were at quilt market in Portland in May. So as we were walking down the aisles, which is pretty intimidating because it is such a huge show, we paused at Angela Walters' booth, and there was Molly, who was helping in her booth. Now we had never met before, but she totally blew me away when she said, "Aren't you Cindy from Live a Colorful Life?" I am not used to anyone recognizing me. I mean, that just never happens to me! And then she said she regularly followed The Name Game and Really Random Thursday! So I'm thrilled to have her playing along this week.
How did you choose the name for your blog?
I decided I wanted to start blogging a few years back after being an avid blog follower for years. I was jumping full force back into quilting after a 2 year focus on my etsy shop- and I wanted to get to know other quilters and share my experience, both good and bad with the quilting community. I told my better half Jeff that I wanted to start and blog and the first thing he asked me was "what are you going to name it?" That sent us on a several day long tangent of coming up with blog names and checking to see if they were already taken... We got some real winners in that brainstorming session... but I settled on sew wrong sew right because I think we all have those moments of pure joy when something goes sew right and also those moments of terror and dread when something goes sew wrong. I felt at the time that many bloggers weren't sharing much on their process, just showing glamorous photos of perfect looking finished projects- and to me that didn't feel authentic. I wanted my readers to know that I make mistakes too, and that the lessons learned from them are the most valuable ones. I hope that my followers laugh with me when I fail and cheer with me when something comes out just right... those highs and lows are what make our journey as quilters so memorable.
Now that you are recognized by Sew Wrong Sew Right, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else?
Thanks so much Cindy for the chance to share my name story on The Name Game- hope you all laughed a bit!
Please stop by and say hello to Molly. As for me, I'm hoping we become really good friends.
The Name Game will be on hiatus until September 9. I'll be posting now and then in the meantime. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer.
