name the day

Can you see me through the misty murkiness that is
this morning?
Actually the sun is just breaking over my shoulder, 
could be a grass cutting day!


What is it about a newly stacked stash that puts you off touching it?
I must admit to a little fabric infused madness
this year.
(there's a name for a blog right there!)
Its very eclectic, this stash.
Now I have a machine I really have no excuses do I?
For a very long time now I've wanted to open a shop, 
I'm getting close I've even got a new name
selfsewn
 a place to keep the creative ideas that pop up.
(and a play on words link to the garden)
 
Choosing a name is hard isn't it?
Generally all the good ones are taken 
or just don't read well.
My first choice was
a stitch in twine
but when joined together I couldn't stop reading
as(ass) tit chin twine
You see the issue.
I do like summerfete, it just doesn't work all year round. 
eg at Christmas its a little odd to be calling yourself summerfete.
 So when I finally get a shop running I will be known as
selfsewn.
What do you think?

Love the name Clare, best wishes for your shop! Still laughing at your other choice!!
Fabric and yarn soon mount up, don't they. Sometimes when I look at what I've got it scares me (only sometimes though)!!

I always admire anyone able to sew speaking as one who shouldn't be allowed anywhere a needle other than knitting....good luck with the store, you make it sound sew easy!!

That is a great new name Clare. I have always like the name 'summerfete'. Maybe during the colder times of the year you could have been known as winter bazaar!!! Good luck with the shop and get cracking on with that stash of fabric! x
