congratulation ladies, please could you contact me with your address so I can send off your prizes….

Over at Dawns blog  she is asking the big question….What’s Your Name and Why…..

so if you were wondering how some of the blog names have come about pop over and check out some of the links on Dawn’s post

some very interesting stories….

mine is simple….when I first started to quilt, my boys all thought it was a bit of a joke that their mum sewed….

I was the lady who never mended anything, if a hem was down I had been known to staple it, or even use sticky tape to keep it up……

and it was easier to throw it out than to try and repair it…….(I am still not that good on the mending)

here's my story…..

One day my number two twin, number three son was asked “what’s mum doing”…and the answer was ‘she is quiltin (no g),’

and then it was followed by ‘she's happy when she’s quilin”….

so that is how I called my blog “Happy In Quilting”…(with a g)….

have a fab Thursday

Take Care Peg……


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.


  1. a bundle of gorgeous gifts for Dawn......

    perfect blogname for you.........

  2. I like how you came up with your name Peg. I'm pretty bad when it comes to mending too! I keep putting it off. The worse thing is jean hems. My father is always buying jeans. He brings them over to be hemmed and says "no hurry". Not a good idea! Three or so months later he asks if I've found those jeans in my sewing room yet! When I do get around to them, it only takes about 10 minutes!

  3. what gorgeous goodies. Lucky Dawn. Popping over there now..

  5. Lucky Dawn, beautiful swap gifts. We have all been spoilt in the friends swap, love it. Your blog name is perfect, says it all. Tracee xx

  6. Hey Sweet Peg! I had a good chuckle at how you came to choose your blog name ... can just imagine a little tacker saying "She's quiltin'" and being rather bewildered why something so girly could make you happy! Tee! Hee! Hee! I am SOOOO with you when it comes to mending ... I confess guiltily that I usually wait for my Mum to visit ... she is so much better at 'practical' sewing than me! :0) Hope your weekend is super-special and restful - Bear Hugs! KRIS
