What's your handle?

In my rush to start blogging, well, I thought about it for a year or so, then I went at it like a bull in a china shop. I thought at the time it was a good idea to have an "obvious" name, like "day dreaming about quilts".
I thought it would make me easy to find, should anyone that knew me (or didn't know me) want to read my blog. What I didn't realise was that it would really just mean I would be buried amongst hundreds if not thousands of other google entries about quilts and day dreaming.

When my patient daughter, Hazel explained about the whole google rating thing, I realised I was really at the bottom of the google pile. It's not that I really expect anyone to read this! I will be dead chuffed if anyone does, but I should at least have a fighting chance!

I was very vain last night and googled myself.....I know, the point of no return. The only way I could find myself was through a comment I had left on A rather convoluted way to find myself.

So, time for a name change before I go much further. And why "midget gem"?

Well, when I was young and first met my boyfriend, now husband, he used to say I was "his little midget gem", awwww. Now I am more of a big wine gum, the wine bit is probably appropriate as well, but it still gives me a warm glow when I remember him saying it.

midget gems

So from this midget gem,
goodbye and speak soon.



  1. Awww that is so sweet ;-) i really like the name!

    P.s. Do you know your word verification is on?

  2. no I didn't realise that was on.
    Thanks for letting me know. Still at the stage of
    getting my daughter to "sort" these things for me! Really strange, today in work I helped a man and sez he, "aw you're a wee gem" - coincidence or what!!


Thank you so much for your comment, I try very hard to reply to them all.
