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!
