Scatterdays - a fun activity to do

Recently one of the girls in Quilting Down Under group (Cinzia) suggested we have a bit of fun with our blogs and for those interested we have what she called 'Scatterdays'.  Every Saturday she will post a letter (from the alphabet) with 4 different categories (one which is related to Quilting).  Participants will have one week to find and photograph one item for each category and upload it to their blog.  The following Sat everyone will cruise around to check what has been found.

Then you start again for the following week.

It begins today!  Because it is close to Christmas we have 2 weeks to complete our first task.  Letter and categories have been sent - not sure if I can mention them here or have to wait till the unveiling of the photos in a fortnight's time.  Unfortunately, you are going to have to wait....a tad sad, but that's the game.

Over on the right side of the my blog is a list of the participants so if you wish when the postings are up you can check out the other photos.  This is going to be fun and a bit challenging.

I will name the postings 'Scatterdays 1/2/3 etc' - this will make it easier for you to find.

Are you a 'noreply' blogger?

I'm asking this question as I love to reply to you when you leave a comment on my blog.  Quite often when I hit the reply button it comes up as ''.  This means that I cannot send you a personal note to say thanks or make a further comment to you.

I always check your blog but if you haven't an email address I can't reply.  If you wish to remedy this you need to list your email address in your profile under the heading 'contact me', then at least I can send you a direct email.

Please don't think I'm being rude if I haven't acknowledged your comment - I just can't send a reply.

Thanks anyway for visiting and making a comment whoever and wherever you are.....

Do you want more blogs to look at????

I've been a member of the on-line group 'Stashbusters' for some time now.  A great group of very friendly chatty quilters.  As the name suggests it is a group for those of us who want to work our stash instead of purchasing more and more fabric.  (Did I just intimate that I'm not buying any more fabric!!!!  I don't think so.)  But the suggestions, patterns and eye candy galore help one in using what one's got.  They also have a blog where anyone who is a member who has a blog, can have their blog listed.  So, I've now included in the side-bar on the right a link to this blog or if you like you can click here and it will take you right to it.

I warn you, you could be there for a loooooong time.  The blogs are listed in order of the last posting with the latest one on the top.  Consequently if you go back the list will be different each time.
