The Name Game: Blueberry Patch

One of the best things about starting the linky party for Really Random Thursday is that I have met lots of great bloggers who also appreciate the random things that happen in everyday life. One of them is Cathy from Blueberry Patch and I'm thrilled to have her here today. 
 How I would love to look at these lush flowers every day!

She comes from the Fraser Valley of Canada, and in addition to being a quilter, she has a blueberry farm.
One of these Denyse Schmidt "Proverbial" Quilts is on my short list
Cathy, how did you choose the name for your blog?

I never every get tired of seeing quilts made from the Swoon pattern
I can remember sitting at the computer as I fiddled around starting my blog.  I was trying to be clever and I don't know how clever I was.  We live on a little blueberry farm in the country.  It just seemed to make perfect sense to call my blog Blueberry Patch.  
 Were there other names you considered, and can you share any of them with us?

I remember one of my friends suggested Cathy's Cwilts. Too silly!  
What a great sewing space! 
Now that you are recognized by Blueberry Patch, are you happy with it, or do you wish you could change it to something else? 
 Now that I am here and have been blogging for 2 years with this blog name, I am quite happy with it.  Content in fact.  It still fits well.  Friends and family refer to my sewing room as the Blueberry Patch or the Patch.  It works.  So I am not in any way thinking of changing the name.
And we try to have blueberries every day.  Just so you know.  
 Cathy has a great recipe here

Thanks for playing today, Cathy! 
I hope you will head over to the  Blueberry Patch and say hi to Cathy.

Here is what you can look forward to in the next couple of weeks:

Picking fresh blueberries is one of my favorite memories of visiting Vermont about 10 years ago. Fresh blueberries are the best! How wonderful to have your own farm!
