Sidebar Tour -- Handy Links to Helpful Needlework Information

Since writing this post, I have rearranged the sidebar! Everything is still there, just in a different order. Enjoy the foliage tour too! MGM

Since today is such a lovely fall day here in New England, and since I can't give you a personal guided tour of all the beautiful foliage here in Central Massachusetts, I thought I would give you a tour of my sidebar instead. Lucky you!

Right at the top is a pretty clear statement about myself. It's true. I really AM hooked on needles, and the best part is that this addiction is perfectly legal, moral and non-fattening! I love all things Needlework, and I have at least tried all of them. Some I am better at than others, but I love them all.

Ok, maybe a little tour of the leaves...take a look:

Next is my email address with a few extra spaces in there just for fun. I am always happy to get email from readers and will respond usually on the same day, unless I don't have access to my computer in which case I will respond just as soon as I do. If you do send me an email, just remember to remove those spaces or I'm afraid it just won't work.

Then comes the fun part - Links! I love looking at the links on other websites to see what people find interesting. The first section, Hooked On Needles Links, lists links to organizational posts on this website, so if you are looking for a post I did on, say for instance, knitting, you could click on the Knitting link and see all the articles on my website regarding knitting. This would include patterns, video tutorials, pictures and other knitting links that I have written about.

Great Give-Aways is the next section. Here I list links to any giveaways that I think would be of interest to my readers and the dates they end. Right now of course the Fall into Fall Giveaway is still underway and there are some great things out there to put your name in the hat for. Mine is listed first, but if you click on the friendly scarecrow further down on my sidebar, or on any other websites where you might find him, you will find the list of all the generous needleworkers who are participating in this fun giveaway.

Then we have Fun Swaps where I list links to swaps I have run across and thought sounded like fun to participate in. I don't necessarily participate in each one of them, but I like to share what I find.

Other Favorite Links lists links to some websites that I have found helpful or interesting and that I think you will enjoy too. Check them out!

Badges to things I am involved in are next: The cute little Stitcher's Angel Swap Angel and the friendly Fall into Fall Scarecrow will take you to information about these fun swaps.

The next section is Feedburner where you can sign up to receive in your email inbox any new posts that show up on Hooked On Needles website. That's a great thing to do because then you know you won't miss a thing! And it's easy too! Be sure to check it out.

The next two sections, Recent Articles and Archives, are where you will find a chronological listing of recent posts and old posts on this site. Very handy to catch up on things you might have missed.

And last but not least, a Google search box where you can type in what you are looking for and Google will return a list of relevant sites.

So that's my sidebar as it stands today and a peek at what I see from my windows when I am working on this site and around town. Sometimes I get a wild hair and change it up a bit. And I try to keep the Giveaway and Swap links up-to-date. If you see one that you think I might be interested in, please feel free to shoot me an email and let me know about it. I might add it to the list for everyone to see.

And don't forget to enter my fall giveaway by October 14th for a chance to win a very nice pincushion bag and other fall goodies. Good luck!

Happy Stitching and Happy Fall!
