September: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

New month, new project

I'm so looking forward to this month.  The crisp mornings and the feel of quilting in the air ... right?


First off I wanted to share that our very own Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs is finally on Instagram.  Do go and follow her if you're on that program. 


Ohhh are you here for the monthly linky party for any project that you choose with some fantastic prizes?

Awesome. . that's why I'm here too!  Well it's a bugger as I so want to keep some of these prizes but my prize is all of you. ♥

That and finishing all of my fantastic projects!

So for September I'm choosing to finish {cough start & finish}
my Crazy & Twisted Starter row.

It's going to be a QAYG project that's in berry lovely colors.

I'm being using something like this.

Take a LOOK at these points. Dear bloc loc, I ♥ you!

Not these colors.  
Something bigger and much longer  
Rest assured I'll be using my new Bloc Loc rulers!!!

What one item will you choose to do for September?

What is a project you ask?
