March 2015: Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party



A Lovely Year of Finishes


Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I are so excited to see so many of you here for another installment  A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Somehow this year has a way to move on fast forward.

I've got some personal things going on.

Thankfully they are all good!

~~

With that I'll be sitting out for March.

Calm thoughts, hoping for the best. Here I go!

My goal is to just keep ALYoF going.

Do please remember that Melissa and I don't get any sponsored perks.  We do this on our own time.  All we ask for is a little love in return.

Remember this is just a little incentive nothing to get too competitive over.  And life does happen...that's why you only need to have 6 successful completions to enter in the grand finale at the end of this year.

This is all about fun...oh and some amazing sponsors!

~~~


Do share, what's your March goal?

What one item will you choose?

You have two requirements to be entered into the prizes this month.

1. Link-up {on this post} the first 7-days of the month 
Please choose ONE project

and

2. Link-up in the last 7-days of the month 

Only with a completed, successful project.  And yes the same one that you choose earlier in the month.

February 2015: Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party



A Lovely Year of Finishes

Somehow the first month of the year zipped by.  That was a time warp of a month - too fast and way too slow.

~~~

Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I are so excited to see so many of you here for another installment  A Lovely Year of Finishes.

Remember this is just a little incentive nothing to get too competitive over.  And life does happen...that's why you only need to have 6 successful completions to enter in the grand finale at the end of this year.

This is all about fun...oh and some amazing sponsors!

~~~

Let me share what I'm planning on cleaning up this month.

Freeing up my design wall and piecing this quilt top is my #ALYoF goal.  Here we go

I want my design wall back.  This has been up for oh too many weeks.

SO can finish this one by the end of this very short month.  

Especially since I'm not planning on having another month of mouth pain {adult braces are not easy for a delicate flower like myself}.

Do share, what's your February goal?

What one item will you choose?
