Linky Party, Thankful Thursday

Quilty Thankful Thursday #22

I am super thankful for rain and quilts! We had a short cold snap and had some (almost an inch!) of rain and snow at the end of last week. After months of 70+ degree (F) days, it was a bit of a surprise to have highs in the 30s for a few days. Even my cat was upset about the cold, but just a bit of snuggling under a quilt fixed everything. Puppy 20150508I am also super grateful to Beth @plum and june. For the past several years, she has hosted a blog hop to introduce new quilt bloggers to the ropes of blogging, and I had the great fortune of participating last year. I learned so much and have formed so many wonderful relationships because of that group. This year, a group of alumni are going to work to host the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop, and I am excited to be a part of the mentor team. If you or someone you know are new to blogging (less than 2 years), please come back on Monday to find out details on how to participate! 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Button (300px) What are YOU thankful for this week? Here’s how to link up (link up open for 48 hours on Thursday and Friday US Pacific time):

  1. Link up any blog post the past week that discusses something that you are thankful for, no matter how big or small (Did you win a giveaway? Did your seam ripper save the day? Did a friend do something simple and kind that made your day?).
  2. To link an Instagram photo, click the Instagram icon at the bottom of the link-up screen, and use the URL of your IG feed as the link (for example, my URL is Please hashtag #QuiltyThankfulThursday.
  3. If you are linking to a blog post, please link back here to my blog somewhere in your post.
  4. Comment on at least a few of the other Thankful Thursday links, either IG or blog—commenting on the two or three links directly before yours works well to make sure everyone gets comments!

    I”m so excited for our next new quilt blogger adventure :) I so desperately need a rainy day, one on a weekend would be preferable. I got so much done this winter that since my snow has melted it’s been a struggle to get into the sewing room since I’d rather be in the sunshine!

  4. I am thankful for your initiative in getting the whole new blogger hop up and running. You are doing an amazing job!

    Oh my goodness… snow? Do you even get snow in wintertime?

    What a great thing to do for new quilt bloggers Yvonne! It isn’t easy to learn the ropes and it is really kind of you and the others to reach out like that. I’m thinking I might join in. It is coming up on 11 months of blogging now for me. I figured out things as I went along, but there is so much more I’d like to learn.

    So this week I don’t have a post, but I am thankful nonetheless. Thankful for my daughter’s upcoming graduation. And thankful for my two dogs who are great companions.

    I think it’s great that the blog hop will continue. So sweet of your group. Today I am thankful for getting more fabric to finish a secret project. And Monkey is grateful for the picture of your cat. He keeps asking to see it and then laughing.

  9. You’re going to be an awesome mentor!! I’ll definitely be back on Monday to learn more about how to help out!

  10. After a few weeks of rain and hot temps we are getting milder weather and sunshine and I’m grateful for that. The blog hop last year was a godsend to me and I think it’s great your group is keeping it going. I will definitely help in any way!

    Sounds like a great idea for carrying on the blog hop. I’m feeling very happy with sewing right now, lots of ideas I’m enjoying, more time would be good (as always!) but little bits are being squeezed in here, there and everywhere so sewing life is good! And today I’m extremely thankful for sunshine not rain, since I’m off camping in the woods with the boys shortly.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
