Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I are so excited to host another year of A Lovely Year of Finishes.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

I was so productive this month.

Packing for the weekend...Pfft why not take an hour our to make a @imaginegnats pattern.  Yep only an hour ... I love these patterns I took an hour and made this awesome pinafore from the awesome Imagine Gnats pattern (some of the best $ for a pattern I've ever spent} This is, ohhh, the 4th I've made!

Oh oh and look
Little apples quilt done and done. It's been instantly being claimed by a gf for her littlest one ♡♡♡♡♡
I finished a toddler quilt.

Oh wait you wanted to see about my ALYoF goal....

Quick star for my fella's brother and wife. Pattern from the uber talented @canoeridgecreations this seems to be my favorite as I've made it 3 times now

I'm still distracted from that.  But hey I have a little bit til the end of the month!!
