Reminder to link up for the FAL!

Hello again! The Finish-a-long fun continues…next week we’ll go back to my regular old stuff.

A quick reminder that the Quarter 1 link up for all your finishes closes on Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at 11 pm EST. You still have a few more days to finish a project or two and link them up to be eligible for prizes. The link up can be found HERE or on any of the 2019 FAL hosts blogs.

A few reminders for linking up:

  • Please include only one finished project for each post that you link up, so that each finish counts as one entry in the (random) prize draw.
  • Please include a link to your original list in each post of your finishes (on Instagram the link is the unique tag #2019FALQ1yourname to be used in the Q1 list post, and in any Q1 finish post).
  • Please visit some of the other participants and leave a friendly comment, we all love to get those!

And we (the global hosts) just wrapped up “Tutorial Week” which has been part of the Finish-A-Long since its inception. The tutorials are varied, interesting, and usually helpful, so take some time to investigate and visit the blogs below!

And whether you had a lot of finishes, or none at all this quarter, or you missed Finish-A-Long Q1 altogether, you can always join in for Quarter 2. The link opens up April 10th for your proposed finishes. We hope you will join us!

Announcing the 2019 Finish-A-Long!

I slipped this in to my last post and a few of you caught the news that I am joining the fabulous team of hosts for the annual Finish-A-Long!
I’ve used the FAL as motivation for a few years now to help me finish off those darn projects that just linger. I hope you’ll consider joining in as well. I have a dedicated page on my blog with all sorts of useful info. 
I look forward to seeing your beautiful finishes over the course of this year, starting on January 10.
