Mystery Monday Link-Up, Part 5!

Have you survived your Holidays SO far?  Here we are at December 30th –the year is drawing to a close.

I have SO much to be thankful for ---and there is much reflection going on in my heart, especially this time of year.

I’m grateful for new friends I’ve made – for relationships with siblings and relatives that have been tried and truly strengthened this year.

And most of all I’m grateful  that you are still here listening to me blather on and wax philosophical when we should be sharing our Part 5's!

How are your part 5's coming?  Which method did you use? I hope your blog posts will give some insight into what you like, what you've improved on, what you've been amazed by and what you've learned!  I love reading what YOU have to say with each new clue.

Let's Link Up!

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/mystery-monday-link-up-part-5.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 most recent post on the blog.  They won't find any of the other links that people have taken time to place on this page.  It will be a dead end street for them.


Make your links (Both yours and mine) post specific.

New links can be added until Thursday, Jan 2nd 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!

  1. All linked up since I am working EARLY today. On my breaks I am going to be checking the other link ups! Hope your day is just as good!

  2. I love how everyone is trying to solve the mystery. Such great ideas and the color combinations are wonderful! Love this!

  3. I'm loving all this: following the clues and then linking up: it's like being at a bee, but worldwide. Super. Thanks, Bonnie.

  4. And the excitement for the mystery reveal mounts!!! Way behind, but having fun.
    Hope you have a great time in Texas with parts of your family and some classes in between.
    Happy New Year and thanks for all you do, Queen of Mysteries!

  5. This is my first mystery. I can't believe I've kept up! I'm impatiently waiting for the next clue.

  6. I wish You a Wonderful New Year!!!

  7. I am having so much fun with thee parts. You were SEW right about the SEWFEST! My 2nd one still needs a few more parts made before we start assembling blocks. I'm linked up with my Blog for #1 and #2 in on my Fliker page so my Sister doesn't see it. :)

  8. I had started rotary cutting my pieces, but then a family emergency kept me away from home. I am hand sewing clue #5 in the few spare minutes I get. I can hardly wait for the reveal!

  9. Thank you for having Link Up Mondays! these links are so helpful for those of us who have to delay our progress on the Mysterious Celtic Solstice Journey!
