I have absolutely nothing to show you as I`m finishing up the quilt I`m taking with me to Paris...it`s going fine now but I have been using my unpicker quite a bit but that`s just because I`m a bit picky.
I can`t tell you how I have giggled at the names you guessed for my brothers. I don`t know who you think I am but my particular favourites are Thaddeus, Tobias, Clayton and Hubert. Great guesses but sadly all wrong. Anyone would think you thought I had brothers with unusual names!
Three of the names were guessed - they are Henry (Hen - the youngest), William (Will) and James (Jim). Nicolette suggested James in the very first guess so congratulations Nicolette - email me your details and I shall send you a small souvenir of my forthcoming visit to Paris. It was too much fun to tell you to stop guessing but thanks to everyone who took part and a few of you suggested James.
The name that no-one guessed was my eldest brother. Now the likes of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow may think they are trailblazing unusual names with the likes of Apple but back in the sixties my mum and dad had a good try at it. My eldest brother is called Torquil which is a Scandinavian Scottish name and which apparently means Thor`s Cauldron. The Times newspaper said it was the most unusual name given to a baby in 1964 but unfortunately they misprinted the name as Tonquil!
Hope you are having a great Sunday.
