    Some of you use your normal names, but I'm wondering if there is a story behind your ID?

    My real name is Christine, but my mother often used the European version ... as in ...

    Mom walks into living room and notices a huge splotch of orange paint all over the new blue floral sofa slipcovers she just made.
    "Krystyna, Krystyna. What is this? Well, that IS a lovely painting of a pumpkin you've made."

    Mom walks into my bedroom and sees me hard at work on one of her old skirts, snipping away with scissors in hand.
    "Krystyna, Krystyna! My goodness! Isn't that a fancy hula skirt you've made."

    Mom passes by the hall closet and notices a sign I enthusiastically made to remind me of the schedule for my soon-to-start violin lessons. It is affixed with to the lovely oak door with glue meant to repair shoes and has a fancy leather frame made from my father's old belts.
    "Krystyna, Krystyna! Oh! Oh ... Well, now no one will forget your lessons for a long time. Oh. Oh, my."

    So, in keeping with my quilting qualities ... I decided to use the ID Krystyna. Mom passed away many years ago, but with each quilt I finish, I can hear her say ...

    "Krystyna, Krystyna. Oh my. What have you made here ..."

    I think mine is pretty clear. I am Olivia's Grammy. However, in Dec she started calling me Mimi bc she couldn't say Grammy. Mimi has stuck and I think it's cute bc it's what she chose to call me. She is now 25 months and the apple of both Pa and Mimi's eye.

    What a lovely story you have....

    For a while my last name was "Moon". I also did work for extra cash at night to help a lady make dance costumes so I was "moonlighting". I had to have a name for a sales tax license so I had to come up with something original.

    Since I was doing my work under the moonlight when my sons were finally in bed, I decided to call it "moonwork" and then added my zipcode when I moved to Kentucky.

    I still do alot of my work under the light of the moon...it's a great time to sew :)

    I collect pigs and my friends little girl started calling me "Aunt Piggy" and I was a nurse for 18 years, hence the LPN part.
