May: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Finishes Party

Phew did we really get through May?!

'A Lovely Year of Finishes'
Hosted here and with Melissa @ Sew Bitter Sweet Designs
One month, one project, one finish for 12-months. 2013 a year of lovely finishes.

If you're on twitter or Instagram
use the hastag #ALYoF and show us your projects

My May #ALYoF project small and mighty.
Aaaaaaand I've let a few things get in the way.

My weekend...tada
My work day View from the fantastic Maryhill Museum in the Columbia Gorge. This is a sight everyone should see in person.
Traveling around the lovely parts of the Pacific Northwest {more coming this week}
So close...just the topstitching. My very own Go Anywhere Bag <3 Well I'm finally able to tackle a pouch and oh look @sewhappygeek sent me the supplies ohhhhhhhh forever ago
Oh and even a little more sewing.

Oh yes and I had a birthday yesterday!
Yeah fabric shopping spree.

Sooooo thankfully there is a little time before the end of the month. . we'll see if I can focus and finish - in addition to traveling AGAIN for work.

If not you'll be seeing my goal being repeated - there's no shame in that :)
