What’s in a Name?

Just about all I can think of these days is our alpacas and our growing farm even though I desperately need to be working on some quilts in progress.  Beth says we need to name our farm…something cute.  It won’t be a registered name because I don’t plan for this to be a business.  It will be a hobby farm.

I’ve come up with some names and you can tell me what you think.  You are also welcome to make a suggestion for a name.  If I choose a name you submit to use for our farm, I’ll send you 4 FQ’s from my stash.  You must leave a comment with this post.   The comment must contain the color and type of fabric you like.   You may make more than one suggestion.  Duplicates will not be eligible to win….only the first submission of a particular name.  You may not use a name I’ve already listed here.  Submissions will be cut off at 23:30  cst Friday, January 18th, 2013.

Remember that when thinking about names, that our last name is Till.  I quilt, knit, crochet, soon to be weaving/spinning.  We garden.  My favorite flower is the Bearded Iris but I also love roses.  We have goats and chickens already.  Big Bird is our main chicken.  We have a stocked catfish pond with cypress circling the edges in our backyard.   South Louisiana is hot, muggy, wet, and we have lots of bugs.

Here’s my ideas:

Dragon Fly Hobby Farm

Little Rascals Hobby Farm

Little Critters Hobby Farm

Fuzzy Fibers Hobby Farm

Boggy Flats Hobby Farm

Soggy Bottom Hobby Farm

2 Fools & Their Critters Hobby Farm

Barred Rock Hobby Farm   (in honor of Big Bird)

Almosta Farm

Almosta Ranch Hobby Farm

Somewhat Stable Hobby Farm

A Little UnStable Hobby Farm

Not Even Close to Stable Hobby Farm

Skeeter Flats Hobby Farm

“Which Came First” Hobby Farm

Sunnyside Up Hobby Farm

Quiltn’ & Critters Hobby Farm

Fiber Fun & Critters Hobby Farm

So….put on your thinking caps and give me some ideas!

    How about

    Sew Till You Drop Farm

    Cause goodness knows that’s when we’ll stop!

    Hope that this finds you doing well. Thought about you and smiled the other day when Teryl’s note about a class reunion was in the email.

    All is well here. Have made a custom quilt and just finished taking quilt number 70 off the longarm. People are starting to try me that have used the same lady for years and I’m hoping that they will start talking me up to their friends.

    Enjoy your new babies. I’ve got two alpaca farms here in our little town of King George. They are so sweet and love to be petted.

    Have a beautiful day!

    Tillfiber Hobby Farm. Till is obvious and fiber means web (bugs), noil, pita, grain, istle, fabric, strand, thread, texture and lanital ( woollike). Hobby Farm means it is small and has animals and plants.

  16. Alice Bott

     /  January 17, 2013

    How about Iris Till Farm? Love bright blue and/or green batiks, or marbles.

  17. Alice Bott

     /  January 17, 2013

    Or maybe Till’s Treasures Farm? Still love bright blue or green or any bright color batik or marble type fabric.

  18. I don’t have a name suggestion but I think before you get too far into this farming stuff, you might ought to move to Texas! Just a suggestion . .

       /  January 17, 2013

      I second that notion! Would not take long to make ya’ll Texians.

  19. Marcia

     /  January 17, 2013

    Not Even Close to Stable Hobby Farm – Now that one is a winner. If they were llamas instead of alpacas and it was store you could call it the Deli Llama’s Home Sweet Home. LOL Or How about Till They’re All Right at Home… It’s been a long day, but will think on it some more.

  20. Marcia

     /  January 17, 2013

    I forgot color and type of fabric. This is amendment to above: Color would be Green for the Irish and fabric would be batiks of course or hand dyed.

  26. Belinda

     /  January 18, 2013

    All I can think of is “Till’s Territory” Hobby, Flock and Fiber Farm

  27. Belinda

     /  January 18, 2013

    I forgot to say that I like shades of red and green

  28. Belinda

     /  January 18, 2013

    Or you could twist it around and say..”Till’s Territory” Fiber, Flock and Hobby Farm

  29. Whew! Hope you can pick just one…..there are some really neat names….I liked Soggy Bottoms but do you think you could add Till’s Soggy Bottom? Good Luck!

    I have no suggestions, but I did laugh out loud at some of your ideas. I love Almosta Farm and A Little Unstable…that cracks me up!

    Farm name; Till Alpaca’d Inn i guess I can’t win since the weekly digest of the blog wasn’t sent out unitil Jan.20th, but if I coulda I woulda chose novelty prints with any color ‘sewing’ theme, if available, to make gifts for my sewing buddies. 😉 in case your wondering, the name is not only a play on you name and herd choice, but also a word-sound play on the ‘Utill I’ll Pack It In’ theme because you seem to have made quite a long term committmet here!!!

  32. Ruth Stark

     /  January 23, 2013

    I know the deadline has past, but how about Till Adventures Farm.

  33. I like your Fuzzy Fiber Hobby Farm
