We are ready for our THIRD Mystery Monday Link-Up!
How are things coming along? I hope you are loving spending time with your units, having fun with the scraps, and finding some de-stressing time for yourself during the holidays.
I have some fun photos to share, and the story that goes with them from Andee in AZ and the Mystery Quilters from “IN STITCHES” in Goodyear, AZ who gathered together for a Celtic Solstice Kick-Off party with the release of Clue 1.
Get a load of this cake!
They even went so far as to duplicate our paint cards on it…doesn’t that look fun? And yummy :)
We would have loved to have you with us, but there was lots of Bonnie energy there! All told, twelve ladies (Andee, Kathy K., Becky, Kathy C., Barb, Ann, Andrea, Kelli, Jacki, B.J.. Jan, Limbania and Roslyn) gathered at Jan’s shop (In Stitches in Goodyear, AZ) along with Jan who assisted everyone with cutting.
Let's Link Up!Her hubby carried things in and out and got the door for us and manned the shop so Jan could play a bit too! I have done EVERY mystery and we had a few gals who were doing their very first one too! We even had a few gals come in from the shop to say they are also doing the mystery and they really wished they had been in on our party too.
We had tons of food and a cake and each of us got a Celtic Solstice colored stocking ornament (and we will be sending one to you too!) and we shared fabric and stories all day long!
One of us even finished the clue—everyone else made lots of fun progress. We plan to get together for the last clue or to share our finished tops down the line.
It really was SEW much fun and I do believe it will be an annual event—as long as you are doing mysteries! We even got a few pictures with the rotary cutters for you!
THANK YOU for all the fun and excitement—much love from,
Your number one fans!
Andee and Kathy in AZ and the whole group from In Stitches
If you have never participated in a Link-Up before, the first thing I want you to do is to read the entire tutorial I wrote about Link-Ups HERE so you can know a few things before you dive in head first.
There is a lot of good information there that will help you understand things like WHY we need the address or URL of your individual specific post, not just your main blog address. It will show you how to FIND the correct URL and link it correctly.
Remember, if you link to your main blog, and not the specific post I will have to delete your entry and have you try again because I can’t fix it for you.
To find the URL for the specific post, go to your blog and click on the title of the post you want to link. Look in the address bar at the top of your browser. The address of your post should end in .html NOT .com!
PLEASE LEAVE OFF the http:// part at the beginning of your blog address when you fill in your info below . The form auto-adds that for you. If I were linking, my address would start with Quiltville.blogspot.com/, not http://Quiltville.blogspot.com/
*NOTE* Your blog address does NOT include the @ symbol! That's for email addresses only, and that won't work in the linky either!
Your blog must be view-able to ALL, not just a handful of people that you have invited. If your blog is private, please don't link up. It's frustrating to those who click to view and are told they can't.
You can link ANY progress of ANY step on any of the Link-Ups. For instance, if we are on a Link-Up for part 4 – and you are just on part 1, you can still link that. Just SHARE where you are!
In your post – PLEASE include a link back to THIS POST: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2013/12/celtic-solstice-mystery-monday-link-up_4572.html not just to Quiltville.blogspot.com. I post more than once a day, so if someone clicks a link on your page to just my main address – they likely won’t find the link-up. That will only take them to the latest post on the blog. They won't find any of the other links that people have placed on this page. It will be a dead end street for them.
Don't BE the DEAD END STREET!
Make your links (Both yours and mine) post specific.
New links can be added until Thursday Dec 19th at 11:55pm EST. If you miss that link-up, just wait for the next Monday and link then.
Have at it, Peeps! I’m anxious to see what you've been up to!
