Dawn from As Sweet as Cinnamon, that yummy sounding blog which is even more yummy when you visit it, has asked us how we came up with the name of our blog and why.
When I was teensy weensy new at computers (not so long ago really) I needed to put a name to something I was doing, and didnt want to use my "real" name - didnt trust this computer world too much then - so I came up with Mardi. Mar from the beginning of my name Marilyn, d is the beginning of my last name, and the i made the name sound right. So I became Mardi in the computer world. The meaning of Mardi is "born on Tuesday", but I was born on Sunday so can't claim the name for that reason.One day I decided to start a blog - well, actually I wanted to join in an activity that was open only to bloggers. So in not much more than a heartbeat, Mardi Meanderings was born. Meanderings sounded like it complemented Mardi - had a nice ring to it. And I have to say I do tend to meander my way through my life, be it quilting, working, spending time with my family, or time with friends.
So that's my story. But there are lots more stories to be found when you go visiting Dawn to see who else has linked to her post.
I have been piecing this backing .
for my Daisy Street quilt.
It is sandwiched and ready for quilting.
