A Lovely Year of Finishes – August Finishes Party

I’m going to let you in on a little secret…every time I got to write Lovely for A Lovely Year of Finishes, I actually write Lovey, then I have to fix it. Not sure why, but I have been making the same typing mistake ALL.YEAR.LONG!

That being said, welcome to the end of August! Have you finished your goal yet? I will admit that I have not done so yet. Lucky for me (and you too if you aren’t quite there yet) we have until the last day of the month to complete our goals!  Here is a picture of mine from the beginning of the month:

I have about 40 more inches of binding to sew down and then ALL of the threads to bury. If I manage to work on it the next few evenings, I should easily hit the goal of August 31st.

Your turn! Time to show off your finish! I will be posting mine separately at the end of the week. You can link up with me or with Shanna, but remember that we share our party so there is no need to link up twice!

We would love it if you took a moment to visit our wonderful sponsors! They add so much fun to this little party of ours! The prizes for August include:

 1. Choice of $15 or 2 charm packs from Stitch n’ Giggles

2. $25.00 Gift Certificate to Superior Threads

3. Riley Blake Designs – fat quarter bundle {one of their latest lines}

4.  $15.00 Gift Certificate to Fat Quarter Shop

5. Paper Pieces prize donated from Paper Pieces

6. Quilting Patterns designed by Quilting Lodge

Remember in order to be eligible for prizes you must have linked up to our party at the beginning of the month and also linked up to this party. Please link back to Shanna and I to spread the love!

    Ha, ha, ha! Not even started yet! We’ll see what happens this coming week. It may go to September at the current rate of progress!

    That’s okay, every time I write about it, I rename the entire SAL to A Year Of Lovely Finishes 😉

    I’ve written up the pattern, but stalled on the branding, as that’s been done by someone else, but that’s okay, I got my bit done 🙂

    Well, I didn’t make it. 🙁 There is still an hour until the deadline, but it is 2 am here on the east coast. I just can’t stay up any longer. I am definitely finishing them tomorrow though!
