Five year blogaversary, fresh sewing day and small blog meet.

Well on the first of April five years ago, I quietly and meekly started a quilting blog with no idea that quilting and blogging would turn from being my hobby into my job.  It is the best job in the world, I love every moment of it and thank you to each and every one of you who have supported me along the way.   But back to the business in hand, on the first of every month, here at Lily's Quilts, we have a linky party to show off anything you've made or worked on (or even fabric you've bought) during the previous month.  There is a second linky party to help small blogs meet and connect with other blogs.  You'll find a few new blogs to follow and hopefully build up the network around your blog and gain some new followers too.  This month, I have worked on all sorts of things but my favourite photo of the month has to be this block where Elizabeth (from the Elizabeth line by Tula Pink for Westminster Fabrics) peeks out from under her umbrella.


And what about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you.  As always here's the button to grab - a brand shiny new one this month to reflect the new blog header!

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.  Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.
