What's In A Name?

Dawn over at Sweet as Cinnamon is having a giveaway if you tell about how your blog got it's name.  Now I have to say my blog name underwent a change from Mamaspark's World to Mama Spark's World.  Why you ask?  Because some folks kept calling me mama's park!  I AM NOT A PARK!  (Those of you that have followed for a long time already know that).

My DD1 has a nickname, it is herself in her dragon form and her dragon form's name is Sparkle. You may remember the small quilt of the purple dragon I did awhile back.  No?  Well then, meet Sparkle.

So when I was trying to come up with a name, DD1 was being called Sparkle so she suggested Mama Spark, mama of Sparkle. That's how the Camel got it's hump my blog got it's name! How did your blog get it's name? Make a post and link up to Dawn's blog. C'mon, inquiring minds want to know!

On to other news,lest you think all I did was apple canning all weekend, I did not! Besides the usual, grocery shopping, Target stop, banking, laundry etc, etc, etc, I managed to make my first block in Moose On The Porch's FQ Star QAL.

I am using Flower Sugar for my fabrics. I am really liking this block.

I also came across a dish towel with a piece of striped fabric that needed to be sewn to it to finish the towel so I did that too.

I did manage to machine sew binding on the chenille blanket and one of the Christmas Tree quilts too! So not too shabby.

Last night I got a call from my son who was out riding our Harley. The bike broke, he needed a tow truck and someone to come and get him and follow him to the dealership and pick him up. So that shot all my plans right out the window. I got back home around 11:30 and toddled right off to bed! How was your night?? ~XOP~

What a fun story!! I had to "LOL" at the Mama's Park part! Love the little towel; very nice. My afternoon didn't quite go as planned, either. Ah well, best laid plans of mice and men, and all that, right?!? :)

What a great story! I always thought your name was because as mothers we are the spark for our children and you were hoping to do more than just give your kids your advise.
I believe that you have sparked my creativity at least once. :) Thank You

I love reading how everyone's blogs got named! Your star is wonderful. Even though I wouldn't have bought the fabrics, I like your star, which tells me I need to get out more. LOL

What a great blog name story! I always just figured you were a mom and Sparks was your last name.
