What's in a name...?

When thinking about a name for my crafting, we came up with an amazingly long list of names mainly having to do with wool, sheep or needlefelting. Some were already taken and some were hilarious such as the one my son came up with--Wool Slayer. He thought it worked since I have to stab the wool so many times.

In the end I used Scarlet Cord because of its meaning to me. I love the incredible story of faith and salvation in the book of Joshua. How the woman Rahab had the faith to help God's people and trust God to save her and her family.  She hung a scarlet cord out her window and when the walls of Jericho fell, her house was still standing. The scarlet cord to me is a reminder of the salvation that I have received through the blood that Jesus chose to shed on the cross for me.  It helps me keep all things in perspective.
