I have a question...

Too many days since last post...I haven´t disappeared from Blogland, just busy working, many secrets these days, can´t show you yet.....
I´m also working on my patterns. The three first angels are finished and I´m now working on the pattern design. When I took a walk earlier today a question popped up in my head, why do I use the name Syverkstan? That´s the name I chose when I started my little company 10 years ago, as a seamstress in a little village in Sweden. It´s Swedish and means "the sewing studio", but if you don´t speak Swedish, what do you think about it? Can you pronounce it?
There must be a better name, and now the time has come to change...or?

I think I will ask my brain for a more beautiful name, a name that´s more me, more like what I´m doing today.... I hope it will come to me, maybe another walk will help....the brain works better with fresh air....

But before I put on my shoes there will be a picture of my last finished angel,

My Sewing Angel....

....and her sister My Gardening Angel....

....and #3, My Kitchen Angel.

OK....but just a sneak peek....here are pictures from my little secret project.....

Soon finished, only the binding left.

Now I will take my brain, and the rest of my body, out for a walk and try to create a new name, if you have any ideas, please tell me.....

See you later,
Helena

Love the angels. Your latest project looks very interesting. As for changing your name? I like the Sewing Studio. I will think about other names as I rake the leaves. :)

Dina änglar är verkligen supersöta - och ditt nya projekt ser lovande ut! :o)

I think Syverkstan is just fine! Why change a good thing that we connect to you? 8-)
Your Angels are all wonderful! Love the Christmas one you are making!
Happy stitchings!

I don't speak Swedish but I like your name, it's unique and original!...Every body know you by this name.
Your angels are lovely! :)

I like your name. Though I cannot pronounce it, I do associate it with you.

Now I know what the name means, I think you should keep it. It is special and has been with you for 10 years. Maybe you can add something to the name, so people from abroad can associate it with sewing or angel patterns.
Love, love your angels!

Syster sa...

jag håller med de flesta här, behåll namnet.. och OM du absolut måste byta så byt till ngt svenskt, det är ju märkligt nog lite exotiskt för de där som bor utrikes :-)

fantastiskt söta kissekatter i övrigt .-)

My suggestion is too: keep the name and write underneath the meaning in English! There are so may English names, it is nice to have one of your own language... (says who's web log is called Urban style and lives in the Netherlands, but hey, Urban is my last name!)
