I is for

Interesting, Intriguing, and Incredible Blogs that I have been reading over the last week.

As you may have surmised I have been participating in the A-Z Blog Challenge.
You can click on the A-Z button on the side to go to the list of over 1700
people who are joining in writing a blog posts using the alphabet as inspiration.
1700 people!!!!  Incredible!

Besides writing YOUR blog everyday this challenge encourages you to READ
some of the blogs on the list every day.  Why?  To make new friends, broaden
your perspective, learn new things and maybe even laugh a little!

Here are a few of the blogs I've been following:

Are you into Beading?  Debbie at Abracadebra Designs  (clever name huh?)
is hosting a Give-Away right now!  Debbie shows pictures of  pieces that she has
made, projects that inspire and things the she aspires to make!
Her give-away prize is a beading book!  Check her "G" blog
 if you would like the chance to win!

I just found  A Heart 4 Heaven today and will certainly be visiting this
blog again!  Elaine has a way of writing where each new word is like
a brushstroke of a painter, making the picture clearer with each word.

Are you interested in genealogy?   Click Here to read Jollett etc.
Wendy is an expert in researching family history.  In her blog posts she
includes a lot of pictures.  I especially loved her post on Sleeping Beauties
and G is for Grandma.  The pictures she posts could be from my family
and they strike such a sentimental cord in my soul.

Is a motivational weight loss blog more your speed?
Then you should visit Rachee at Look Better Naked.
Now how is that for a blog name?
Rachee always makes my laugh.........her latest post
gives instructions on how to make your butt go POW!

Kelly at Sew Alluring is blogging about her journey learning to sew.
She just posted about a great new sewing aid that you can make yourself!
I'm sure going to be trying it!

Perhaps you love to crochet?
Lots of Crochet Stitches by M.J. Joachim is one woman's quest to
share her knowledge of crochet stitches and projects.
And there is a wealth of knowledge there.

Kate at her blog called  Suddenly Seeking
has selected a theme of writing about jobs that she could have.
Very humorous writing about the pros and cons of each job!
Funny stuff!

JollyJilly is posting a quilt block a day using her daily alphabet word!
So Clever!  I wish I had thought of a theme before starting this endeavor!

I could go on and on but I guess I should stop now!
Seriously, check out the A-Z link on my side panel for
a list of over 1800 bloggers.
I've just scratched the surface in my reading!

incredibly yours,


  1. Stopping by via the A to Z Challenge.

      learn more about crochet.

    1. Thanks Jessica. I'll be checking out your blog soon.

  5. Thanks so much for the mention - MORE than a mention, I'm honored by what you wrote! And for visiting...AND for helping us find a great place to start in all the blogs there are to visit! What a great post for "I"!!! Your blog is so unique! I can't imagine what a t-shirt quilt is all about, so will end here and hit that tab to find out! Thanks so much again!

    1. I was really stuck for what to write for "I", so I was really happy when the "idea" of sharing other "inspiring" blogs finally hit me.
      Your blog is truly "inspiring"!

  6. Hey there, Thanks for sharing my blog and my giveaway. I am loving this A to Z challenge and am enjoying reading all the great blogs I am finding on a daily basis. Off the check out the other blogs you mentioned now.
