2018 Finish- A-Long First Quarter Link up

2018 Finish A Long Logo 2

New Year…new resolve to complete those unfinished projects.  Come join the 2018 Finish-A-Long!  And…guess what?  I am one of the hosts this year.  I have been a participant for many years and it has helped me to get some of my WIPs done – and even to know how many I have!

What is the Finish-A-Long

The Finish – A – Long is the brainchild of Rhonda (Rhonda’s Ramblings) and was started back in 2012 as a no pressure linky event that allows you to make a quarterly list of the works in progress (WIPS) that you are hoping to finish during that quarter of the year.  You create a list (big or small, short or long) at the beginning of the quarter and link up via one of the Finish – A – Long hosts blog linky post.  You then use that quarter to finish your projects, and at the end of the quarter you link up any of these finished projects and become eligible for prizes (randomly drawn.)  There is no penalty for not finishing these projects and they can be carried over to the next quarter.  Win, win!  One of the best aspects of the Finish – A – Long is the community involvement via the host blogs linky, Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.  Once you have linked up take some time to visit other links, leave comments and participate!  You can encourage, meet and make new friends, trust me, I have!  Ready to participate?

This year will be hosted by a collection of bloggers.

Marci – Marci Girl Designs

Izzy – Dizzy Quilts
