2016 - the year of finishing projects

January has always been the month I finish several projects and while I continue to finish projects throughout the year it slows down somewhat as I manage to get very side-tracked with starting new projects. So this year to try and get more focussed I have joined the 2016 Finish-A-Long.
This Finish-A-Long  has been running for many years world wide and to explain it I have copied from the website:

The Basics of the FAL

The FAL is a low pressure community event that allows you to make a list of projects that have already been started but not finished and thus are hanging about in your sewing room as UFOs. The list is linked up at the beginning of a quarter and then at the end of the quarter you link up a link for each item on your list that you finished. Each link is an entry into the random draw for great prizes sponsored by our generous sponsors. There is no penalty for not finishing something on your list. 

The photo above shows the 5 projects I have chosen to finish in the next three months. Three are relatively new, one is 15 months old and the Craftsy BOM was started in 2012. Getting them finished to the top stage will be easy, quilting them may slow me up a bit.  Wish me luck.

Despite a very busy week in the shop I did manage to quilt a new oriental quilt that now just needs to be bound.
Also finished off a Tilda journal cover that had been hanging around for a few months and the grey cushion has been waiting about 18 months to be completed.
