And remember to check everyone else out too.  ALYoF is awesome because of all of YOU.

A Lovely Year of Finishes


Oh it's time to pick out a new many possibilities.

Since I actually finished my goal last month and finished three other projects. 
I'm still going to choose something easy.  

This extra work and throw in 2 weeks of an infection and I'm kinda beat down to the ground.

This month I'm going to finish the quilt top of my Metro Rings (pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful)  with Kate Spain 'In from the Cold'

Oh how I missed sewing.  I just had to zip up some #metroringsquilt blocks pattern and #quickcurveruler by @sewkindofwonderful with @katespain fabric. Love some gingerbread smiles

I have everything cut out it's just the process of adding one background and trimming.  


Do share, what's your October goal?

What one item will you choose?
