Sugar…what?????

I’ve just been visiting Dawn’s blog and she’s having a little competition about how we name our blogs.

Thinking back, I know this was a big deal for me, because I wanted my blog to reflect who I was, where I was, what I was like, and ‘Wendy’s Blog'” just didn’t cut it!

Soooooo,   with my thinking cap on, I  thought about where I lived……I live in the Burdekin in North Queensland… a prolific sugarcane growing region in Australia, so that’s where I got the SUGAR part …..

Next, I thought, well, I live in a sort of cul-de-sac (sounds better than a dead end street, doesn’t it???!!!) and the cane grows on one side of our narrow street and there’s beautiful tall trees growing down the end  so it’s a little like a lane….so obviously (now!)……there’s  the LANE part…

so SUGAR + LANE plus my love of QUILTS and QUILTING gives you the name of my blog….

SUGARLANE QUILTS!

Can’t wait to hop on over and see how others came up with their blog names too…Hop on over to Dawnie’s blog and join in the fun!

sugary hugs

XO Wendy :O)

Love how you came up with the name for your blog.

The picture in your header is great. I remember the burning of the cane from when we lived on Maui. We called the black ashes that "rained" down, Black snow.
