    What would Jitka be in English? It is a beautiful name in Polish. (The J is pronounced with a Y sound, right?)
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    I have always loved the sound of the name of the capital. I choose Boston for that reason. The 1954 is the year I was born.

    pinklady- I sell Mary Kay products so I took the pink name because of the famous color Mary Kay herself liked.

    Mine's just my name. Everything 'clever' I tried, was already taken.

    I have always loved the wild and free mustangs that roam in custer county. So it was perfect for me. Wild and free to make quilts the way I want to.

    I was really busy when I got onto the Board and all I could think of was "Wannabee Quilting". My mind was in the sewing room even though my body was doing other stuff.

    I have enjoyed going through and reading about each person and where there names came from. I used my middle name Rose and well my brain gets going to far ahead of me and I do a lot of unsewing or ripping. (very impatient) so roserips that's who I am and what I do.

    My sister in law's Mother gave me the name The Suz. Somehow it stuck with me and since my name is Suzanne, sometimes I use just SUZ or sewingsuz.

    A dear friend of mine bought a new house (her first) and named it Patti's Palace, scratched into the newly poured concrete patio. When I bought mine a year or so later, I referred to it as RuthiesRetreat, since I thought I wouldn't move again until a big California earthquake dumped us into the ocean. A couple years later, I got my first computer so used it as my screen name for email, and for my quilt labels, and for this site.

    Mine is just my name. I added the numbers because I think there are probably 118 more maryb's out there. ;-)

    Nightquilter, I only have time to quilt at night after everyone else has gone to bed.The same is true when I made all my daughters clothes at night. It all started when my oldest daughter would stop breathing at night in her sleep, someone needed to be with her to gently nudge her so she would breath, I thought a alarm would be harsh for a young child, so I moved my machine close to her room. So the name fit.

    A few years ago I started making these small teddy bears and giving them to people. They are only about 5 inches tall and I had written a poem to tag them with..."When you're feeling kind of lonely,and you're feeling kind of blue,
    Just hold me close to your heart, and remember God loves you."

    I would take them to church and give them out and people started calling me the Teddybear Lady. The name stuck and even now when I see them that's what I'm called.

    My name is Debra, but I get called Deb, Debbie, Dubby, Mom Deb, Miss Debbie( my hubby calls me this), and now my DIL's niece calls me DeeDee. I don't have any grandkids yet so I have no idea what I will be called when this happens.

    It is nice to hear about all of you and your names.

    Debbie

    I collect angels and have well over a hundred sitting around my home. Therefore, I am angelmama to my collection. I watch over my collection as my angels watch over me. The 22 is the day of the month I was born. My real name is Jane. Love this board and all the inspiration, but I don't post much.

    My maternal Grandmother was Matilda Jane and was called Jennie. I never knew her, but I feel she must have been a wonderful woman as she created my Mother. So, when I purchased my longarm (named Jennie Matilda)and was going to quilt for others, I needed a business name. I chose Jennie Matilda and Me Longarm Quilting. I shortened it to Jennie and Me for this board. Jennie and I are quite close. My given name is Phyllis.

    Mine means that my first name followed by my last name initial was taken on another site that I visit frequently, so I added my last name initial again - hence, cathyvv. I guess it also means I re-use my screen names because it's easier to remember one than many!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    My name is "grannie2wheels." I chose my name because I am a Harley riding grandmother . I found out two years ago that I have MS but it hasn't stopped me from doing the things I enjoy such as riding, gardening, and now--sewing.

    Yes we did. But it's still an interesting thread to read.

    When my first grandson was born, I didn't want to be called Grandma Scott. That was my MIL's name. My name is Joanne so I became gramajo.
