May: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

Happy new month!  And it's May!
It's time to think about another month of 'A Lovely Year of Finishes'
One month, one project, one finish for 12-months. 2013 a year of lovely finishes.

Do you need a primer of what 'A Lovely Year of Finishes' actually is?
and my awesome partner on this project
Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs has a reference page found here.


May 2013

My May #ALYoF project is being forced to be small but mighty.

I'm going to piece the back for the quilt top I finished for March's goal.

See. . baby steps will get this beauty finished UP!

What do you have planned for your lovely May finish?

Let me know if you have as busy of a May as I do.
Remember you get to choose what you want to finish. It doesn't matter how big of a project you pick - just has to link up what you want to complete here and then don't forget to show off your finish the last 7 days of the month.
Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the linky party below.  Make sure you also link back here so other people can join in the fun!

**Please note, the linky party is the same here and over at Melissa, so there is no need to enter twice **

For those unsure of how to link up go check out our Q&A Page for A Lovely Year of Finishes - there are instructions on how to link up from a blog and from Flickr.
