A Lovely Year of Finishes – 2014 Edition

A Lovely Year of Finishes

That’s right the fantastic Shanna and I have teamed up again! I love working with her, she is AMAZING!

We are so happy to be doing this again this year. And make sure to check out our sponsors.

There are some ground rules.

This is a sewing and crafting link-up. Although it would be awesome for cooking or millionaire making. . that’s just not who we are. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Be nice. We love the encouragement that is in this community. Just keep it going.
  • To win a prize you’ll choose one month to work in. Add in a photo or a blog post during the goal setting linky. Work on that project & finish it to where you stated you would get to. Add a new photo or blog post during the finishes party linky.
  • For your goal post, if you could pick one project that as your ALYoF goal. That makes it easier on us. And if it’s easier on us, it’s easier for us to give you a prize if you’ve been chosen. And to that end if you can help by linking back to your goal setting post as well.

What is a project?ย  There is no shame in not meeting a goal. You just aren’t in the running for a prize that month. But hey, try again another month!

A finish is whatever YOU choose. Seriously it could be cutting out all the pieces for a fantastic quilt-top. Getting the last 2 blocks done for a quilt top. Your goal could be getting your lingering bee blocks into a quilt top.ย  Binding, quilting, or something else crafty. This isn’t a finish a quilt a month club this is a you’re awesome and you can do it club. One piece at a time baby! Celebrate you’re small finishes and I bet you’ll finish more.

  • We want to encourage you to visit one another and leave comments. This is what makes us all so much better.

Please grab our button over to the right

to keep the love going


ย or the specific blog post to show off the month you’re working on.


Remember there is a flickr group

A facebook group

& A hashtag #ALYoF for instagram or twitter


I’m planning on making 2014 my year of sewing from my stash. I already have 3 big quilts planned for family plus I need to finish my hubby’s king sized quilt (we’ll see if this actually happens!).


As always if you have any questions drop a comment or an email. Between Shanna and I we usually have some ideas or suggestions.

Can’t wait to start off 2014, oh wait I need to go pick a January goal.

See you all soon!

    I always follow your posts and think that I might join in for 2014. I can’t decide if I want to resurrect my blog just for these posts or post from flickr.
    I would like 2014 to be the year of the STASH as well. I certainly have enough to keep me verrrrrrrry busy.

    I’m joining in again and hope to improve on last year’s 5 finishes. It taught me to to aim lower by staying focused on one project at a time. Thanks.
