Favorite Things Friday - Blog Names

This is going to be short and sweet.  I had a lot of "press" on my blog name with the Blogger's Quilt Festival this past week (which I'm still only about 1/2 way through!)

The hubs and I were talking about it and I was commenting I was asked about it often.  I chose it because I wanted a name that fit (and oh yes it does) and that I thought would be easily remembered (is it?) in case I ever did anything business related in the quilt world.

He said he could come up with a few other adjectives and when pressed, wisely stated, "Sexy, sassy, sarcastic quilter."  I suspected he was really thinking, "Bitchy barbie sarcastic quilter."  :-)

Anyway, some of the names I've come across that I love:

Sarcastic Quilter (of course I have to include me!)
Bitchy Stitcher
Quilting in my Pyjamas (I do it often but not often enough)
Ditchin Time Quilts
The Confused Quilter
Cheaper Than Therapy Quilting
The Reluctant Quilter

I know there are others but they are escaping my mind.  Tell me what are some of the best blog names you've come across? They don't have to be quilt related. Just which ones struck a funny with you?

Cheers! Beck

Hey Becky, love your blog name too! Kevin, my hubby helped me name mine, A Ditchin' Time Quilts was his idea because he kept hearing talk about stitchin in the ditch!

I think your blog name is perfect. It's very catchy and easy to remember!

Good luck with everything now that you're famous - maybe you'll have to enlist the help of your husband to answer emails :)

really, though, congratulations - you've worked hard at it and I think it's great that you're being recognized!

In the state of Michigan we ran across a kitchen store called the "Bitchen Kitchen" :) I like the name of your blog! Have a nice weekend.

Shay said...

Now that you're famous I can say I knew you back when ....

I love so many blog names ...yours of course- it's one of the reasons I became interested in your blog (aside from the fact I found out you are awesomely fabulous ) "ocd: obsessive crafting disorder "is another one that's very clever . I love P's blog name "The Way I Sew It" ..I could go on and on.

I think a blog name is something that gives you a chance to really show your personality.

Maybe someone should start an annual best blog name award !

Your blog name is easy to remember and I've always admired it (it's not a name for the faint of heart I would think). Quilting in my Pyjamas is another favorite.

I really like your blog name and it was one of the reasons I originally clicked in for a look-see. Feel free to kick up the sarcasm anytime. Never too much for me. I really enjoy it.

There's a blog called "Mommy Needs a Cocktail." I thought that name was hilarious.
