Why did I name my blog Pieceful Afternoon







If you stop over at Sweet As Cinnamon you will find a wonderful list of blogs, all telling how they decided on the name of their blog (plus a give-away).

The reason that I named my blog Pieceful Afternoon is because I love nothing better than to have a whole afternoon, sitting peacefully and working on my quilts. I like to do handwork, quiet and still, and I thought of a peaceful afternoon - but then I decided to use "Pieceful" because I am doing quilts on these quiet, soft afternoons. I also thought of how quilts (pieces) bring peace when they are given as gifts, or slept under on chilly nights. So Pieceful Afternoon it is.

And I do love a Pieceful Afternoon with quilts freshly washed and blowing in the breeze. . .


And sometimes I get to enjoy those Pieceful Afternoons with our grandson Ben (this was taken when he was 2)

I knew it was something like that you clever thing! It is true of so many of us, a peaceful afternoon to piece...I'm going over to see others.

And it describes perfectly your love of those 'pieceful' times!

Sounds like the perfect day to me... quitls and Ben! He is just a doll, and I love that he is starting to quilt, too.

Even a non quilter like me knew it had something to do with your quilts! Love that image of your quilts hanging out on the clothes line. And oh my goodness Ben's baby pic is so sweet. ~Lili

It's interesting to hear how blogs got their names, I'd guessed yours was to do with quilting but others are much less obvious. Mine of course doesn't take much working out:)

Your clothesline full of quilts is beautiful! A peaceful, pieceful name indeed.
