December: Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

December, December how did we get here?

Welcome to the last month of 2013.

It's the last link up for this year, and wow it's been a lovely year of finishes!


Like many people I know this is a busy month.
I'm going to be distracted by all the pretty things.

My December #ALYoF goal. Link up starts tomorrow

I'm going to choose a simple project, I'm going to cut up out my Violet Craft Madrona Road fabrics for my Lazy Sunday by May Chappel.

After all this cutting I'll be excited to throw the pieces into a bag (per strip size) and go random crazy!  No planning out this beauty! I'm going to let go.  Well as much as I can.

But my goal by the end of the month (year) is to have the fabrics cut, which means a little cleaning of the sewing area first - sigh.


So now it's your turn!

What one item will you choose to do for December?
You have two requirements to be entered into the prizes this month.

1. Link-up {on this post} the first 7-days of the month

2. Link-up in the last 7-days of the month.

Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the linky party below.
Please grab a button or link back to Melissa  and I 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.

Grab a button from my sidebar and spread the LOVE!
Oh yeah and there are prizes this month (as always!), here is what our fantastic sponsors are offering.

This is the last of the "regular" link-up's. 

January 1-7 Melissa and I will be holding the 2013 year in review party with additional prizes, for those that finished 6 or more months worth of your goals.


  1. Good luck! I only have one fixed goal, to get my dad's Christmas pressie done, and as he reads my blog, I'll just have to tell you here that that's what's planned :oD

  2. Nice little stack of fabrics! Good luck with getting it all cut up. :-)

  3. Love the fabrics - good luck with your goal!

  4. Finishing off the year strong with high hopes of completing my December goal - so I can wrap it for a Christmas gift is good motivation too! Good luck with yours.

  5. Nice fabrics to use for that creative pattern. Good luck getting it cut. It will be a wonderful quilt!
