  1. I can now see this post and the one below showing the detail. Blogger is working again. Yeaaaa..
    This is so pretty. . . It still looks like a kimono in a way. But have no clue what to call it.

  2. Marianne, is "Wired" your name suggestion?

    I apppreciate all the suggestions.

  3. yup i can see it. my name is 'Ark Scroll' as it looks just like the lovely cloth that covers the Ark scroll in a synagogue.

  4. I really appreciate all the names coming in. Keep 'em coming.

  5. I accidently deleted TerBears comment so I am having to input it here, Sorry Terry.

    Lynn ~ I love your untitled piece! There are so many interesting things to gaze at. I love the bead work in the border and the gold charms.

    When I looked at it thinking of a name a few ideas came to mind. Because of the burlap and warm/earthy border color, I got a natural... Native American feel. The swirling fibers reminded me of clouds. I love how they are surrounding and covering the pieced strips. (love the purple) The gold charms made me think of the word Alchemy. I looked for a Native American name that had the meaning I was searching for. I came upon one that is both Native American and Hebrew. ;-) That word is Magena. It means "Coming Moon and A Covering/Protection.

  6. Crow left this message which I accidently deleted. I apologize.

    "Down on the Bayou" The center looks like a house with lots of Spanish Moss growing on the trees. The orange is spicy and reminds we of creole "cookin". Lazy water flowing around and around.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    This article is about a water landform. For other uses, see Bayou (disambiguation).
    Big Cypress Bayou in Jefferson, Texas off U.S. Route 59.
    A bayou at the Sabine River at the Louisiana rest stop.

    A bayou (pronounced /ˈbaɪ.oʊ/ or /ˈbaɪjuː/) is a small, slow-moving stream or creek, or a lake or pool (bayou lake) that lies in an abandoned[vague] channel of a stream. Bayous are usually located in relatively flat, low-lying areas, for example, in the Mississippi River delta region of the southern United States. A bayou is frequently a slackwater anabranch or minor braid of a braided channel, that is moving with less velocity than the mainstem. Many bayous are the home of crawfish, certain species of shrimp, other shellfish, and catfish.

    The word was first used by the English in Louisiana and is thought to originate from the Choctaw word bayuk, which means "small stream." Another theory on the origin of bayou is from the French words "bas lieu" (pronounced phonetically as ba-li-you) meaning "low land". The first settlements of Acadians in southern Louisiana were near Bayou Lafourche and Bayou des Ecores, which led to a close association of the bayou with Cajun culture.

    Bayou Country is most closely associated with Cajun and Creole cultural groups native to the Gulf Coast region generally stretching from Houston, Texas, to Mobile, Alabama, with its center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    An alternate spelling "buyou" has also been used, as in the "Pine Buyou" used in a description by Congress in 1833 of Arkansas Territory.

  8. I am going to post all the names soon for all to see. There was a lot of thought put into this by so many of you. I am very very appreciative. I find them thought provoking. And I will choose soon or combine some thoughts to come up with my own. But know however it turns out you all added stimulation to my brain and thinking. Thank you so much.
    I will do this again. More minds working together is a good thing.
    I also find it interesting to see what others SEE in something I made.

    1959 Ford Ranchero is what my husband sees!

  9. I like SB's suggestion, and Elspeths'...and all the others.Good luck chosing

  10. Oh, this is gorgeous. I love the four different coloured buttons that are the same shape and size.
