Some tips for a stress-free party: First and foremost, be patient. It may take a few moments for your linky and thumbnail to complete, so give it time. If you struggle with linking up, give it another try, and if you are still unsuccessful, email me and I will try to help. (You will need to send me your attachment and the blog or Flickr info.) You can send it to quiltnsrep(at)yahoo(dot)com, and you will need to bear with me. Remember that I work well over forty hours a week, so it may be that evening before I have a chance to work with your linky!
 
VITALLY IMPORTANT NOTE: You simply MUST check to make certain that you are not "no-reply" on your settings. You can find oodles of tutorials on the web on how to do it, so I'll not bore you with the details here.
But if you are no-reply, I can't talk to you.  I can't post for you.  My hands are tied.
So PLEASE if you are not sure, put your email addy in your comment for me!!
 
This party will go on for ten days, so spread the word to all of your friends. Let's have lots of participation!
 
We'd love to have lots of shelter pets sleeping on cozy blankies and mats, too, so go to the Padsworth Project page and sew up something quick from your scraps!  A picture posted on Padsworth's page will result in three more entries in the drawings!! Wowza!
 
After you link up in the party, leave a comment saying you did, and then have fun hopping around to see everyone else, and leave them happy comments!

The viewers' choice contest will begin after the linky party closes! (You might want to keep notes on your favorites, to make the voting easier!)
 
Let's party!!
 
Love,

  37. I have enjoyed the parade immensely! for some reason though the Flickr photos stopped coming through. I have last years photos and just a couple posts from this year's parade. I love all these sweet animals and their quilters.

  38. One day I 'lost' my 14-year-old Cocker Spaniel, Misty. And all the while, she was right at my feet while I was longarming! So funny I had to snap a picture (#64)! Great photos of all these critters.

  39. This is a wonderfully fun idea and it looks like you have a lot of great & fuzzy participants! Thank you for the party and the effort you have put in, past, present and future!

  40. What a fun idea. My entry is a dog themed quilt. It is my interpretation of our 'grandson' Darwin the dapple chi-weenie (Chihuahua x Dachshund)

    ReplyDelete
  41. I had to enter the Dogs on Quilt category. Tilly likes nothing better than to park her cute little body in the middle of my quilt when I am trying to hand sew the binding on.

  42. My entry (#68) is a puppy on a quilt category. This is a pic of my 7 month old puppy "helping" me document my quilt. Puppies are sooo helpful .

    ReplyDelete
  43. And just cuz it was so much fun, my second entry (#69) is also a dog on a quilt category (actually in front of a quilt). This is a pic of Jet the trying, a basenji, at 14 years old in front of a quilt i made for my husband. Jet passed away in May, but he still resides in our hearts.
