Have you ever went to one blog and continue hopping through the links that are posted.  I did that today.  Found a few things I want to join in on.  Where did I start at?  Deborah's Bits and Pieces has lots of links to check out.  So I was hopping through her links and found another reading challenge to join.

Try Something New Reading Challenge

Examples of Something New
First book in a series
Debut book
 A new genre or trope
A new to you author or series
An author switching genres
A new book format

Level 1: 1-10 books
Level 2: 11- 20 books
Level 3: 21-40 books
Level 4: 41-60 books
Level 5: 61+ books

I think I'll go for Level 1 for now and see what happens.

I'm also going to be doing the ORTS meme every month over at It's Daffycat.  I've done this one before, but it was a hit and miss thing.  but I'm going to do better this year.  Oh, your probably asking what the heck is ORTS.....Totally Useless Stitch-A-Long.  You save all those (any kind of threads) you cut an put in the trash.  Put them in a jar, a box, a bowl, or whatever you want to save them in.  Then once a month, actually on the New Moon is when Daffycat posts the ORTS Meme.   So hop over and check this one out if you have hots of threads to share.  
A place I like to look around is Urban Threads.  They have lots of embroidery patterns  I want to get, and they aren't real expensive.  You can check them out by clicking on their name.

I have an awful time coming up with things to blog about besides books and crafts.  So I decided I'd give Anna's idea a go.  It's called......Blog All About's a blog prompt meme.   Go sign up!

Well I guess that's it for me.  I hope your New Year is totally awesome with whatever your goals are.
