A Lovely Year of Finishes: 2014 and 2015

Half way through the year I started joining in with A Lovely Year of Finishes hosted by Shanna at Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of Sew Bittersweet. Alongside the Finish Along it's been a great way of focussing my sewing (and sometimes stopping me from getting distracted  with new things when I have deadlines!). I have completed 6 months of goals so I get to join in the final linky party for 2014. Here are my finishes:



In July I finished a basket for the Big Stitches Swap; in August I finished the Siblings Together Bee Quilt; in September I finished my Swooning in a Crowd quilt; in October I finished the Mix Tape quilt; in November the theme continued and I finished the Mini Mix Tape quilt for the #IGMiniSwap; and in December I finished the Baby Boats quilt.
So that's a wrap for 2014, onto 2015 and my January goal.
A Lovely Year of Finishes

I could pick one of the two swap projects that I need to finish, but I need to finish those regardless, so I want to use this to push me to finish something that otherwise may not get done: my Nikki Tinkler Sampler Quilt. Started in 2011, it's really about time this got finished. I made some really good progress back in September but in the pre-Christmas rush it got left at the side.


Will you be linking up?

Your sampler is lovely. Those blocks are no beginner's work.

Good job with the 2014 finishes!

I am joining in for the first time this year and hope that I can get a lot of my UFO's cleared up.

Good luck in 2015!
