    Mine comes from the first letters of my children's names - Billie and Benji.

    I'm living in the country & love it. Sass because as I get older I'm getting more sassy to the dismay of some inlaws. And 2012 for the year I joined this board. My 'real' name is Vickie. Fun post.

    Mine comes from an old Medicine Man I knew in South Dakota.
    He has since left on his journey home and lives among our ancestors.

    For about 15 years I was very active the basenji (dog) world
    Then I was in a car accident, got 'hit in the head' and came to the realization I wouldn't be able to do that the way I wanted to
    Rugosa was my kennel name ad I sill have the license plate that says RugosaB
    You know that feeling when you've finished all your quilting projects and your studio is perfectly clean???? Me neither.

    It's not how fast you sew, it's how well you sew fast! Wait, I think that's supposed to be MOW!

    Mine is the name of my favorite dog. She has passed now, my avatar is her successor. It was easy to remember.
    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    Canny is a dialect word here in the Geordie area of England. It can mean Lots of things. I am a good quilter, I am a nice quilter, i am a careful quilter. These are things I aspire to lol so hence the name cannyquilter.

    I live in the state of Kentucky and for years I have collected bears. May have to change the bear to fabric, because I think the fabric collection is slowly moving my bears aside.

    I am a country girl and a country crafter. When I tried to use either of those for my member name they were both taken and it was suggested I use a number after. I didn't want to do that, so I just decided to use a different spelling and that is how my name came about.

    People who were born in the Upper Peninsula of MI refer to themselves as Yoopers, (for UPers). Was born there also lived there for some years, relatives were mostly all born or lived there. Also, if humans could have taproots, mine would be in the UP, on my little farm I loved so much, or in Grandma and Grandpa's yard by the Red Currant bush.

    Mine comes from my last name Gerbert (married name has been for 44 years now). When I was teaching, most of my fellow teachers called each other by our last names, so as not to use our first names in front of our students, because we didn't want the students to began calling us by our first names- could have caused some problems. I have a very dear friend that I taught with for several years and she shortened my name and began calling me "Gerbie" she still does. I had different nicknames growing up because of my first name Gradene- pronounced as (graydean) difficult for some to pronounce if they haven't heard it before, a for some who have and I didn't want to use any of them so I just chose Gerbie. I was named after my Dad - Grady and my mother's middle name Irene- thus Gradene.

    I loved reading all of the names and will be back as more add posts.

    Mine is the name of my hometown, not very big, maybe 250 people, well, 249 when I left.

    Simply where I live and what I do. Try to keep a relatively low online profile.
