ALYOF final thoughts......






A Lovely Year of Finishes
A Lovely Year of Finishes





A Lovely Year of Finishes

The last three years have been so much fun, Melissa and I have really enjoyed managing and running A Lovely Year of Finishes. 

We have had the opportunity to work with some incredible sponsors and we have been lucky to see so many wonderful finishes, and finish a few projects ourselves.  

That being said, we have decided it is time to take a break from A Lovely Year of Finishes, and it is with heavy hearts that we are announcing the end of A Lovely Year of Finishes. 

We want to thank each and everyone person who linked up with us over the last three years. Give yourselves a huge round of applause, there have been over 3,000 finished projects linked up to our blogs. Talk about amazing!


We want to thank our incredible sponsors.  Your generosity has be unparalleled. 

This doesn't mean that Melissa and I are going away or that our wonderful friendship is ending, merely that we want some time to re-focus ourselves, our blogs, and our sewing.  We are excited for the future and we hope that you will keep up with your finishes.  

The group on Facebook will still be live and you are always welcome to keep posting there if you need some cheer leading!  

Don't forget that if you finished 6 out of 12 finishes this year you are eligible to link up to our finale party that will open on January 1st. Make sure to link to each of your awesome finishes in your blog post (or better yet, show a picture of each one in the post!).

And again, we aren't going anywhere, there will be lots of quilting, sewing and creating on each of our blogs in the coming year, we are just taking a break from this particular project.

Happy Sewing!

Melissa & Shanna
