January: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Finishes Party

The end of January is in sight.

So, remember that one item you choose as a January finish?
How did you do? 

Here's my January finish ...
Jan finish - well it will be #alovelyyearoffinishes

This is the position it was in for ohhh a week - still on the machine.

Yet taking the above photo is what inspired me to finish it up.

Off to the washing machine for you!

Did you complete your goal?

  1. Eeeeeeps!!!! I'm so jealous that you are finished! I still need to make my bag and now my machine is making weird noises. Maybe I should sew it up today before it dies or something =P

  2. Woot, well done on getting to the end. I'll link up 1 for now, but I actually had a list of 5! Can I link up more than 1?

    1. You over achiever :) I love it!

      You can only link-up once. But make sure it was on your goal setting list.

  3. Yay for finishing your quilt! It's so much fun getting a crinkly new quilt out of the dryer! :)

  4. All those finishes! I am proud of us! My list of things I wanted to do got longer as the month went on but my 'master' list is under 50 UFOs now so I'm way happy! I just wrote my February Goal Setting Post and can't wait for that linky. :D

  5. Thanks for hosting, Shanna. This is a great way to see what others have been working on.

  6. Oh boy - posted my pictures to Flickr but not here. Look for me there, ok?? I'll make sure to post here next month :(
