Hoot and a Half

I take off work early on Tuesdays and Thursdays to help out with my grandson. Yesterday he was crabby and just wanted to be held. So I layed him across my lap and played with my embroidery machine. I was able to get 5 more Hoots done.

If anyone would like these Hoots they are from Designs by JuJu

I was visiting As Sweet as Cinnamon and she put a question out there to find out why people name their blogs the names they have.

So I thought I would join in on the fun and tell why I named my blog The Average Quilter.

It took me awhile to think of a good name that I could live with. I have a small problem with my self esteem. I know I do good work in my sewing and quilting and I can do just about anything I put my mind to. But that's it. I feel that my work is just average - hence The Average Quilter.
I would love to be exceptional and I'm always striving for perfection (that should count for something).
There you have it -

Now I'm going to read why and how others came up with the names they have.

Your owls are so cute! It makes me want an embroidery machine. I can't wait to see the finished quilt.

Your owls are spectacular! Average is a word that can be taken out of context. It is a great blog name....
