MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

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.

A couple of things to see/do

(because you really don't want to see that the only thing I managed to do today was wrap a few presents!).

1.  The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that I have added a new button in my sidebar showcasing the 2015 Grow Your Blog party spearheaded by the incredible Vicki Boster.  I've mentioned this before and I finally got around to throwing my blog into the party hall.  This blog party is HUGE (over 600 bloggers took part last year) and it's a great way to both discover new blogs and also to get YOUR blog better known.  If you choose not to add your blog to the list and just want to go around and visit, that's fine too.  The party starts on January 25th and you have no time limit on how long you take to go visiting, nor is there any set number that you need to visit.  The button you see in my sidebar (if I did it right!!) should be a 'live' link to the sign up post on Vicki's blog where you can read the rules (there aren't many, so don't be scared).

2.  There's a tutorial for some sweet little crocheted snowflakes on Karen's Todolwen blog.  They would be perfect for tree decorations and/or package decorations.  Go HERE for the tute!

And, because I don't have any pictures of anything I'm doing to show you...


Cuteness is good!

About your Grow your Blog button. I signed up some time ago, haven't heard anything yet and wonder where you get the button html? or is that something that will be sent to me in due course? very foggy about how this works, as you see.

Thanks for the 'linky party' info, I'll pop over and take a look.
Lol at your chicken/puppy pic. Reminds me that I must take a photo of my white dove who is in love with my white miniature Jack Russell pooch.

Thanks for sharing ideas, I love the mother hen sharing her warmness and the little chick hoping to get in on it too. How cute is that?
