It's hard to believe we're already on month 8 of A Lovely Year of Finishes! This has, to date, been one of the most rewarding link-up/alongs that I've ever done. Setting a monthly goal - no matter how small - has been very motivating. And then there's the added bonus of prizes. I've won a few! Thanks, Melissa @ Sew Bittersweet Designs and Shanna @ Fibre of All Sorts!
But what am I going to do this month? I've made a considerable dent in The List and this month I feel like I deserve to do some selfish sewing. So my goal is to turn this....lovely pile of Carol Friedlander Doe Blueprint into...
... a lovely Beatrix top designed by the creative brain behind Made by Rae. I've got the fabric and the pattern and fully intended to join in on the #Beatrixalong. If only I didn't have small people foiling my well laid plans. I really need to make something for myself before I use up all my yardage on things for other people. Small people. People, like GT, who absolutely needed a white top for tomorrow's family photoshoot.Geranium Dress I made a while back, also from Made by Rae.
TGIFF @ Quokka Quilts and Finish Up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts. A finish is a finish, no matter how small!
I'm also linking up this post with the August Goal Setting Party for ALYOF... just under the wire again. When will I learn?
