Do you look around?

When your reading your favorite blogs, do you just read what they wrote, maybe or maybe not reply and move on to another blog? or do you look around their blog to see what they have on there usually down the sides. Usually there are lots of buttons too. Did you know that most of those buttons are clickable? Did you notice I added a lot of new buttons on the right hand side of my blog.......a lot more Quilt A Longs???? All the other buttons have been moved to the very bottom of my blog, and they are all still clickable as far as I know.

Right now I have 9, yes that is NINE QAL's listed on my side bar. Now mind you, I put them there if they sound good.......sometimes I never get to them, or don't have the time for them. But they are there if you want to click and go to them. I also move them around sometimes too. But right now I have....

Christmas is coming so I have a...................
Then there is a free BOM ............
and then


I love stars so there is this one...........




Myra has hers going full swing, there is time you can catch up..........(ps I haven't started yet) changing my mind on fabrics.



This one I am almost done with, so this button will be going to the bottom soon........


 I have always wanted to make one of these so why not............

and then the last one for now is the..........


So while you are browsing your friends blogs, stop for a moment, even if you follow over 400 blogs like I do, and look around a bit. You might find something you were looking for. You might find another great blog and end up meeting your next best friend that way. Or you could get yourself way over your head buried in projects too. But you will have fun any way it comes out. If you find anymore cool quilt alongs, that I don't have listed, drop me a line. I am a sucker for quilt alongs!!!!! It is the best way to get rid of your scraps and stash too, let someone else tell you what to do with them :D

I didn't make any of the buttons in this post clickable, but they are on the right and they will go to the beginning page of that said quilt along. Some of them are almost over, others haven't started yet.  Have fun!! You only have 81 days left till Christmas, get sewing!!!

Until I finish some BOM UFOs, I just can't start a BOM QAL. Ha! Barbara Brackman's Civil War blocks are really tempting. Have you seen those? A different 8-inch block every Saturday along with a bit of history.

I love the quilt-alongs and want to participate in many of them but it can be really difficult to find the time. I think it so wonderful that so many bloggers offer them - there are so many different ones to suit so many tastes.

Great post Ann Marie. Participating in Quilt Alongs is super fun and a great way to interact with other quilters online.

Looks like you have a lot of fun on your plate, but they all look very intriguing.
