Still ice on trees and things this cold morning in the Ozarks, but looks like the sun is trying to shine-as pretty as the ice is, we need to get that all melted off the tree limbs and power lines. Hoping today is the day.
Geez I am still having lower back problems so can't even pick up anything heavy right now-that is a pain when you heat with wood only-it's been about two weeks now. Good thing is this is the first I have messed up my back for a few years now-so those stretch exercises do help. On to more fun things---
I wanted to share a couple events I am going to participate in this coming year. I have the button links on the top of my right hand column, just click for more information.
The first one that starts is Let's Bee Social. This is on Sew Fresh Quilts blog. Her event is held every Wednesday and starts January 1st 2014. The concept of this linky party is to be social and to meet and share with other quilters. One is encouraged to link up a post of something you want to share, and then buzz around meeting others that have also linked up. This is an awesome way to meet new quilters and friends.
The next one is the 2nd annual Grow Your Blog Event that has been organized by Vicki at 2 Bags Full. This is another social event to meet new bloggers and find new friends.
When I first came here to Blogger I had such a difficult time finding new friends to blog and share with that I had gotten very discouraged. That all changed when I participated in Vicki's event in January 2013. It is amazing how many blogs that are participating in this-in the 100's.
This event is held on January 25th 2014. I had so much fun last January that I will be participating again this year. I will also be having a giveaway to share on my post that day.
I have also decided to link up with Cat Patches for her 2014 New FO Challenge. This event is held the last day of each month and for all those that link up each month she is holding a drawing for a quilt themed lapel pin. This linky party is to encourage us to start a quilt project-and no we don't have to finish it-lol I have so many things I just want to get started on that I decided to join in on this one.
So if you are wanting to find new blogs to read and meet new friends please join in. I love being inspired by others and meeting new friends. Since we live secluded here in the woods I really value the friendships here in my blogging community.
I am ready for a new year.
