Rhymes With Fuchsia

Tuesday, February 12, 2008


I just brought a new baby home, and I won't have time to play with her until I finish the sweater. I have about two more rows to go on the body, and then I start on the sleeves.

The new arrival will definitely be going with me to SPA, however. By then we'll have had a little time to get used to each other, and I'll be ready to show her off. She doesn't have a name yet, though, and although I haven't named her siblings, she's telling me she needs one. If I followed a certain blogger's alliterative practice, I could name her Shirley, or Sheila, or Sharona, or possibly Maggie or Marilyn... what do you all think?


  • Hmmmm ....

  • I know, I know! And I'm jealous as hell.

  • OH! Really? Which one? I can't go to SPA so I gots to know.

  • Shirley and Marilyn are my favorites... but what about the siblings, will they get names too???

  • Spinning wheel, right? I can't see you witholding play from any live baby, regardless of species.

    Hmm - siblings. . . maybe not a wheel. . .

  • I'm not going to SPA because I'll be with Laurie. Sounds like I should be envious of you all the way around!

  • You are going to tell me, right?

  • Susan, not Susie.

  • Hmmm... I like Shirley. It can go either way - Shirley Bassett, sultry and sexy, or Shirley the snarky diner waitress. :)

  • Me, me! Teacher, pick me! You got a Schacht Matchless, right???

    I'm wicked jealous.

    But I traded some hard labor/home renovation work for Kellee's Traveler. My very.own.wheel.! Should I name mine Ass Tit? Just wondering.

    Arlo Treacle?
    Andi Tarp?

  • I think you're only obligated to do the alliterative thing if your new baby has squishable, practically edible cheeks.

  • I like Nichole :)

  • I'm guessing wheel and I'm liking Maggie. Now stop the teasing and show us the goods :)

  • Oh, you lucky devil, you! :-) Congratulations, and may you spin long and happily together! :-)

  • I'm happy to hear that you got that wheel!
