Submitted by Kerrie who wrote:

LOL! I thought I was the only one who did this. My machine is Martha too and my serger is Ella (the Elna).

I think Eileen has it totally wrapped up with Sven, but that photo of your stash has me drooling so I’ve just got to give it a shot.
And I agree it just has to be a Viking name.. soooo….
I humbly submit:
Frigga – Odin’s wife, and “mother of all”..

And this is my irreverent Irish coming through, but that’s a heck of a good name for when you get annoyed with those inevitable serger-stop-ups… “Oh FRIGGA frickin, frappin…..!!”
;-D

Congratulations Kerrie!  A perfect name to add to my colorful vocabulary…haha!

And because I’m in a good mood…I’m giving runner-up prizes to the two who submitted the most names:  Meg and Denise.  Email me your mailing address and FAVORITE COLOR at domesticdiva@si.rr.com.

Thanks to everyone!

Hope your New Year is filled with all things good!

  1. OMG!! Shut up!!!!!!😀
    Lisa! You are the awesome-est!
    I had to read that twice because I was laughing so hard by the time I got to the end that my eyes were watering and thought I didn’t see it right.
    “Tweety” started the giggling then by the time I got to “Ellen” the comments nearly made me fall out of my chair..
    I’ve had a rather carpy day today too, 2008 began with a tiff with Himself then the folks at WalMart forgot to hand me one of my bags and I’m soo not happy about putting off my project and having to go back for the darn thing.
    But any year that starts off with fabric from the Diva’s stash is definitely going to ROCK!😀
    (and I’m going to be laughing all year too – every time I’m using my own serger, thinking of you yelling FRIGGA!! – ROFL!)

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and Athbhliain faoi Mhaise Daoibh!
    (A Prosperous New Year Everyone!)

  2. Glad I made your day Kerrie.

    It could have been so much worse…last week I left one of my bags at our local deli…Mr. Diva went and fetched it for me. Unfortunately, he got stuck there for 2 hours due to a hostage stand-off across the street from the deli! See…

    I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried. So much for living in a desirable NYC neighborhood…LOL!

    Happy New Year!

    With friendship,
    Lisa

  3. ummm Kerrie…BTW…need your mailing address and your favorite COLOR, please? LOL

    With friendship,
    Lisa

  4. Holy cow!!! And I was annoyed at having to fight suburban traffic!?
    What are the odds?
    And did I read that right? The gunman is still out there? 8^O
    Gotta love NY!

    I got called away by my mama’s girl, but I was in the middle of emailing you – and of course my favorite color is….

    PINK!😀
