Announcing the 2019 Finish-A-Long

As we are approaching the end of the year, I should be finishing up the last projects for 2018. In reality I am not finishing any... Instead I am making plans for the coming year!

Fortunately I already had one finish this quarter: I posted about the quilt I made for charity in a previous post, and I am very pleased about that.
And again fortunately, Marci and I have been busy to make sure there will be another Finish-A-Long for 2019, for much-needed encouragement to finish some more Works-in-Progress (WIPs). I am so excited to be joining the Finish-A-Long again in the coming year!!
(If you are not sure what the Finish-A-Long is, have a look at my Finish-A-Long page).

So let's see what the Finish-A-Long has in store for the coming year, shall we?!

So join us, write your list of WIPs, and link it up at the start of the first quarter.

You can make your list any way that works for you. But if you like a ready-made planning page, I have made an up-to-date planner for you to use, too. Download the 2019 Finish-A-Long Planner for free and use it to make your FAL list. It also has all the important FAL dates and hashtags...

The link-up for your list opens on 10th January, here on the blog (and on any of our hosts' blogs). If you are joining us, feel free to use one of the buttons below:

And if you have been participating with the 2018 Finish-A-Long in the fourth quarter, the link-up for finishes will open on January 1st 2019 and close on the 9th, so you still have a few more days to get another finish done!



  1. That list looks impressive, my goals for 2019 will be to get all the boxes unpacked, a new bathroom all done with a wet floor shower, and remodel the existing very narrow laundry and bathroom.Quilting might be put aside for some time. Lovely to see you there in the list. Have a Joyous Christmas Season.

  2. Hello Sandra. I missed out this year so intend to join in with Fal 2019. I’ve printed off the log/project planner and as I’ve got to have a sort out of my sewing room, which is very timely, thank you so much. Best wishes. Sue
