I very much appreciated Melissa and Shanna's A Lovely Year of Finishes... once Evelyn arrived, it became harder to find time to sew, but sewing is necessary sometimes to keep me feeling like more than a milk cow ;) So, the goals helped me find little snippets of time to get a little sewing in. I look forward to  more goal setting in this new year!


  1. Those are a lot of wonderful finishes. It's important to find small bits of time to do things that you enjoy. That's what keeps you able to enjoys your little peanut too! Have a great start to 2014!

  2. Great job! I know AYLF really helped me to finish up some old UFO's that I just couldn't get the motivation to work on otherwise.

  3. Amazing job of finishes especially with a little distraction ♥
