    I have almost finished writing my blog post. Thank you for hosting the link party =)

  2. I have added buttons to my blog before but am having trouble with this one. It is not showing up as a button. Can you please give me some tips? Thanks.

    1. I just want to let others know that the HTML code was incorrect originally but has been updated to work.

  3. Guess I need to start thinking about 2017. Now if only I could finish all my 2016 goals…….

    Hi Yvonne! Thank you for engouraging us to make plans for the new year. This year didn’t go very for me with quilting (didn’t have time much for sewing). I have no idea what the year 2017 will bring to us but I hope to make lots of quilts. I shall add your button and write the post soon. x Teje

  5. Teje says:

    Yes, the button leads here but doesn’t appear well. x Teje

    1. Thanks, Teje, that is what I meant to say. Working on my resolutions and excited to blog.

      1. Teje says:

        Jane, did I leave my comment to Yvonne as a reply to you? sorry for that! Now I tried to leave a comment to you that your grey colored quilt looks really beautiful but my comment disappeared! So, wishes from here! x Teje

  6. This is wonderful! I already have my QP and am filling it up with plans, so I’ll write a post and join the fun. Thank you for this great social!

  7. Kate Heads says:

    I’d love to add your button but I’m having problems too. So looking forward to this party.

  8. yanicka says:

    I had to save the button on my computer to use it

  9. Oh! I would be so excited to win any one of these wonderful prizes! Off to write my blog post and set some goals!

  10. I’ve been thinking about writing a blog post about the 7 year itch, does that count as thoughts on my quilting for 2017?

  11. Oh, let me get through Christmas first, LOL!!

  12. Wow, wonderful prizes! I’ll be back to link up!

  13. Erin Quinn says:

    Great idea. Getting started now – I have tried to include the button in my sidebar, and the link part is working, but not so much the pretty picture. It might be my error, because I’m not particularly bloggy proficient, but just in case it’s not just me, I thought I’d mention it :-).

  14. Jasmine says:

    I am excited to do this. I need to figure out what my goals are.

  15. I saw that post from Smiles from Kate and decided to join the party (and add you to my Feedly).
    Tried to grab the button but it didn’t work for me, so I snagged the image.
    Thank you for hosting this wonderful hop – with prizes!

  16. rosa says:

    Wow, great idea. Can´t wait to begin visit the links and add mine.

    Wishing you a great weekend.Merry Christmas!!

  17. I did not do so well on my stash-busting goals this year, but I was a star at one of my personal goals: I remembered to use moisturiser on my skin! That might not sound like much, but it is for me. :)

  18. heartsdesireretreats says:

    Loved sharing my goals and seeing everyone else’s. Perhaps we should all come together at the end of the year and review how we did. Good luck to all!

  19. I’ve joined the party and linked my goal post. Thanks for hosting and a chance to win some prizes. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! May you accomplish all your goals! kthurn(at)bektel(dot)com

    Thanks for a great link-up! Just what I’ve been needing to do.:)

  21. Yvonne, this Planning Party really helped me to organize my goals for next year. I tend to be ‘scattered’ and unfocused, but you motivated me to put it all in writing. I’m sure I’ll refer to my own post all year long attempting to make directed progress. THANK YOU so much! (p.s. No need to reply; I know there are a ton of links for this party.)

  22. Thanks for hosting this again. I enjoyed it in 2016 and look forward to continuing next year.

  23. helen says:

    2017? Where has 2016 gone to?

  24. Thanks for hosting this annual planning party. Giving thought and having a plan for the coming year helps to keep me organized. Happy 2017!

  25. Jennie Adcock says:

    Thanks for the much needed encouragement!

  26. Liz says:

    I’m in but I don’t blog! I’m thinking and working on my list… I’ll write it out and email it to you like I did the last time so you can include it?

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