This might surprise you a bit but I so much do not like the link boxes! On the other hand, I LOVE the link boxes. This just proves Vince’s point . . when we were first married and life at our house was a bit difficult, we were in the middle of a heated argument. Of course, I don’t even remember what we were arguing about and I guess I had said one thing and then said something else and he looked me straight in the eyes and said “You don’t know what the hell you want, do you?” Hmmm . . maybe . . or maybe not! We’ve come a long way!
Anyway, the link boxes frustrate me because it seems like everything works so well with them for weeks and then for a week or so, everything I do on there is wrong and the boxes don’t work right and people put in links to their main blog and not the specific blog post and I think I need to work my blog away from the link boxes.
But I love the link boxes because it helps me to get to see a whole lot of good stuff.
Sunday – Stash Reports - I love seeing how well or how not so well we’re all doing. Knowing that I have to report all the fabric that comes in makes me real careful about what I add. It also makes me want to work faster to get things done so I can report usage.
Monday – Design Wall Reports – I LOVE this one. It always gets me in trouble. When I should be sewing and finishing projects, I’m thinking of new things I could be doing.
Wednesday – What’s Cooking? – This is fun! I’ve found recipes I want to make. I’ve made some really good recipes. I hope you are trying new ingredients. Guess we’ll know next week, huh?
Thursday – Show Us Your Socks – All week I have to decide which socks will go up for my picture. I love all my socks and I’m loving seeing yours. I see yarns that I want to buy . . not good! Remember that you can show any socks — they don’t have to be hand made.
Friday – On the Needles – This is so inspiring. I want to knit things besides socks but haven’t done much else. Seeing the projects has caused me to buy new patterns and a little (or a lot) yarn. I get so motivated seeing the projects.
On Tuesdays and Saturdays, we have no link boxes. I think Saturday is going to stay a “link box free” day but Tuesdays should have something. Don’t you think? But . . what?
Here’s the contest – think of something we can use for a link box on Tuesday — something fun! I’ll take the three or so that I like best and put it to a vote but I do get final say. Whoever submits the winning entry gets a $50 gift certificate to either Fat Quarter Shop or The Loopy Ewe — your choice. I’ll close submissions on Friday and will put the top three or so up for a vote on Saturday and will choose a winner on Sunday.
