Linky Parties

What is a Linky Party or a Link Up?
Val at Val's Studio has an acrostic on her web page where she lists the linky parties she knows of or is involved with.

Lots of posts are shared
Inspiring work is found
New friendships are formed
Kind words are given

Unique things are discovered
Praise is received from man


Val at Val's Quilting Studio has a page listing lots of link ups as well. The link up list is here. I did find that a few of the links on her page are broken or the link up is no longer active but many are

Personally I link up most weeks to two linky parties. One on a Sunday, Sunday Stash Report at Patchwork Times is a chance to monitor and share my fabric purchases and usage for the week. Its a way of being accountable for what I buy and what I use.

The other link up that I use regularly is WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced which is a chance to share what projects I have been working on during the week but not necessarily finished. 

Both these blogs encourage you to visit a couple of other blogs listed in the linky party and comment on them. We all love to get comments now don't we.

I copied this list of blogs from another blog I was looking at but managed to forget where I got it from. So thankyou nameless blogger who collected this list of links

The main reason I have written this blog is so that I have a record of the linky parties out there. Having found the lists on other blogs I wanted a way of remembering where they were. Now that I have shared them you too can find some other places to share your work. If you know of other places that have regular linky parties let me know.


  1. Two of my favorites:

    Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict

    Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts

  2. I also love Whoop Whoop Friday and Finish it Up Friday.

    I hesitate to even mention it since I've been a little slack lately, but Throwback Thursday on my blog is an incentive to document your creative projects that were finished before blogging.

    Thanks for this great list!
