Name That Dummy Contest

I have always wanted a dressform. I've seen the homemade duct tape versions (ick!), and the paper maché prototype (too much work) but I've always wanted one of the adjustable models. In the past, they have cost more than $200 and I couldn't justify diverting fabric / yarn funds on a dressform.

Over the weekend, I re-visited the idea and thought, "I'll have to remember this idea next time my family complains I’m so hard to buy for asks me for gift ideas." Hey.... wait a minute..... Didn't I just receive a JoAnn's gift card for my birthday? And doesn't JoAnn's online have them on sale right now? And don't I also have a free shipping coupon for JoAnn's? CHA CHING!

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY, MY LITTLE DRESSFORM!! Isn't she lovely? I've only seen pictures but the stork should be delivering my new addition in a week or so.

Now, she needs a name. Debbie has given me some good suggestions but I'm not sure I've found exactly the right name yet. So I propose a contest. Suggest a name (leave a comment with your email address) for my new dressform and if I adopt the name you suggest, I'll send you a prize. The name should be a little spunky, maybe a little diva, have a little attitude. There is no set deadline. I'll end the contest when the perfect name presents itself (even if I think of it myself!)

Hi Bonnie,
Enjoy your new "family member". We miss you at SnB. I used a sport weight 100% alpaca from Henry's Attic for my Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl. How do you have time for everything? - knitting, sewing, cooking, family, reading....You do it all!
There is more about the shawl on my blog, http://knittynancy.blogspot.com/
I am new at blogging, so I apologize in advance. Hope to see you soon at SnB. Nancy

Um, how about
Florinda (the form)
Bess the Body
Bodacious Betty (BB for short)

Those were weird, but umm, were we going for normal or outlandish? hehe
