SBQ – A Rose By Any Other Name…

  • Posted on November 3, 2006 at 12:12 pm

This week’s SBQ was suggested by Lee and is:

How did you decide on the title of your stitching blog? Was it random, or does it have a special meaning to you or about you?

I really like this question. My regular blog and stitching blog are one in the same, but it did take me a while of brainstorming to come up with what felt like the “right” name for my blog. Going with a star theme was a given, so then I had to find a clever play on words to suit my blog. Hence “Tale of a Shooting Star,” because it seemed like an appropriate pun. “Tale” for the tales which I intended to weave and yet still retaining the idea of the tail that appears from a shooting star as it streaks across the sky. I’m not sure that I’ll be able to top that when I redesign my website and have to come up with an appropriate name, but we’ll see.

As to where the star theme came from in the first place, you can blame it on my mother and the poem that she wrote for me for my high school graduation entitled “Starchild.” Thus, a star was born. 😉
