FAL Fourth Quarter Link-up!

Its time to link up your list of unfinished projects that you propose
to finish in Q4 of the Finish-A-Long. We are hoping that the FAL
community will inspire you to work on your unfinished projects this
quarter and to get them finished before the end of the year!

The 2018 FAL is hosted by a community of bloggers across the world. Our hosts are:

For those of you who are new to the FAL, it is a place to
find motivation and encouragement to complete those unfinished projects
that are hanging around. At the start of the quarter you post and link
up a list of projects you hope to finish in the next three months, and
then at the end of the quarter you link up each successful finish from
your original list. Each linked up finish is an entry into the draw for wonderful prizes from our sponsors. There is no penalty for not finishing a listed project, so feel free to make your list as long or short as you wish. The 2018 Schedule and Rules for theFAL are on my permanent 2018 FAL page, let me know if you have any questions.

Here are the fantastic and generous sponsors for Q4 of the Finish-A-Long,
you can see each of their prizes listed under their logo. Please think
about visiting them and saying thank you for their support of the

So now it is time to round up those projects that you want to finish
over the next three months! Take a photo of each one and make your list.
Please ensure that you have at least started your projects – pulled
fabric with a pattern is considered a UFO – and remember it is only
finished projects that will get you an entry toward the above listed
prizes. So while we love to see your bee blocks, the “finish” is when
they are a completed, usable project.

If posting on social media (Flickr & Instagram), it will be very helpful
if you tag your list with #2018FALQ4yourname (where yourname is unique
to you). Using the same hashtag over the quarter when sharing project
progress or finishes helps the host to make the connection to your
original list quickly and easily.

IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to link up your finishes when the quarter closes!

The 2018 Q4 list for your list of proposed finishes is now open, below, on my blog and each of the hosting blogs. You need only link your list once, on one
host blog, and the link will show up on all the host blogs. If you are
using Flickr or Instagram, post a photo mosaic of your projects and
put your list in the description. Don’t forget to include your unique
hashtag. Katy of The Littlest Thistle has a great tutorial on how to link up if you need it, or Marci of Marci Girl Designs has a tutorial to link up an Instagram post specifically.

We also ask that you become part of the FAL community. Please check out the links of others – visit and comment on their lists. We all need encouragement to get those finishes done, so please share some of your own too.

If you want you can follow us on Facebook, Finish-A-Long and/or on Instagram, @finishalong, too. We’ll post encouragement during the quarter and reminders when the finishes link up opens at the end of the quarter.

When creating your list there is one thing to remember – No deductions for
not completing something so – Aim High! Nothing to lose!! Well now, get your list together and get linked up.

Feel free to use and share the FAL button above and this one too:

The Q4 proposed finish linky party will stay open until 11 pm EST, Thursday, October 18, 2018 – as we are global, you might want to check your time zone to determine your last possible time to link (you can also see how much time is left below the linked up images on the right.)

Remember: you only need to link up at ONE hosting blog and it will automatically show up on all hosting blogs.
