I feel a name change is needed

Hello dear reader
I've been thinking lately, that maybe I need to revamp my website, in particular it's name.(nimbleneedles )
I don't know why but i think it needs something.
I have been nimbleneedles since the beginning, probably because my after school club was called nimbleneedles, it seemed a natural progression, plus the children I was working with could remember it easily lol.
I'm now moving back down to work with 6 year olds, they're unlikely to be interested in my crafts, so do I need to stay as nimbleneedles??

I have a shop over on misi,  well 2 actually: hennies nimbleneedles, and bluesunflower. Plus I dabbled with etsy as hennies handicrafts! is taken but THE is available.
Or do I go for a complete name change that somehow somes up me, my crafts, my fundraising.

This is where you come in dear reader, tell me what you think?

It's never too early .. is it?????

I thought I'd make a start, by making some Christmas tree decorations.
These are from an Amygaines pattern,"> who has also very kindly given me permission to sell items from her patterns for Rich's memorial fund
If you would like to have a set :

If you have an idea for a Christmas gift, or any other thing else, please leave me a message or visit one of my websites.

Anyone know how I get the link button to work..
I only seem to get it to work once if I'm lucky!!!

With one ball each of pink and white, I've made this sweet little gift set.
The card was one I was lucky enough to win on another blog:

I thought it added a little extra to the gift set.

Set contains: Card, photoframe, bootees, 2 washcloths with footprints on, a rattle which is textured for babies curiosity, a soap bag complete with natural soap and finally a scrubbie. to start on a blue set me thinks!
The whole set will come in a tissue lined gift box for £15 plus postage.
What do you think??

Like a kid in a toy shop

Found this little lot in a local charity shop. 40p a ball which is about 65cents
All brand new as you can see.

I was smiling and looking in the bag all the way home, it doesn't take much to float my boat as they say!!!

Almost two years

You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

I'm trying Rich...I'm trying
