The additional challenge is a Scavenger Hunt, to find blogs that feature D for Dragon. My blog has an old post about dragonfly. I need more time to find a blogger who has written about a dragon for this April’s A to Z challenge.

Post #0 introduces the set up of A to Z Challenge.

This project uses textiles and is entered into another blogger’s co-running challenge (Frederique) that has her specific theme of sewing & textiles. ‘

John, the original creator of the annual April’s A to Z challenge, has an extra dash of spice for this year’s A To Z blog participants. He asks us to join in a scavenger hunt, to search for bloggers who feature cobwebs in April 3rd’s entry. I have a few drawings of spiders, but not exactly cobwebs. Still, spiders must be a substitute. πŸ™‚

Common dreams – swimming, insect, spider, scorpion.

Here’s the mother of all spiders:

Frederique’s letter C is on Chaussettes, which is French for socks.

I chose that category because I was unsure what type of content I could create.

This challenge is linked to Frederique’s sewing theme for her blog posts on A to Z Challenge, at https://quiltingpatch.blogspot.com/

I’m a beginner and self-taught artist. I welcome suggestions for different art forms (and medium) based on my main subject, which is the domestic cat. Thank you.

Frederique’s Sewing/ Textile challenge for the letter A is Abat-jour, the French word for lampshade.

John has a suggestion for participants. Since we may be visiting other blogs, he says to look for bloggers who posted about apple, and the next day, bear and etc. He says its a scavenger hunt. We’re supposed to gather the specific items mentioned in those blog posts and copy-paste the link in our corresponding respective post. For eg., if a blog post is about apple, copy their link and paste it into my own post on the letter A.
