A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Fun things to know about

Today I didn't get any time to take any photos because I was busily wielding my needle and threads working on my white cloth.

SO...

I will send you off to explore a couple
of things....

1.  For those of you who enjoy embroidery, Mary Corbet has a really interesting post about using stitches to add texture to your projects HERE.  She has listed a number of stitches, along with the links to the tutorials in order to do them.  Great fun!

2.  One of the 'funnest' things that happens around blog-land is when Vicki Boster hosts her annual  'Grow Your Blog' blog hop and she has just opened the registration up for that.  To quote a small segment of her post - "Do you want to "Grow Your Blog" - make new friends - increase your blog readership?  The opportunity to do all of those things is just around the corner!"  This is one of the absolute BEST ways to get your blog known and to get lots of visitors that just might decide to follow you.  Not only that you, in turn, can have a blast visiting all the other bloggers that have registered for the tour.  I can tell you already that this tour is HUGE!!!    The deadline for registering for the tour is January 17th and the tour itself happens on January 25th (but you can visit the blogs anytime after that date).  Vicki does a tremendous amount of work organizing this and it shows - kudos to her!  Go HERE to find out more and to register.

Today's quote is from Richard Carlson.... "Every day, tell at least one person something you like, admire, or appreciate about them"

Thanks so much for mentioning the Grow your Blog registration. I only heard of this last year when I saw people already participating, and I was sorry to miss it. Not this year, though. I've signed up.
