BIG news……


For quite some time I have been hinting around about big news for the 2013 Finish A Long. Well today is the day! Today I share that news! Today I tell you what it is! Today you learn what I know! Today you get to hear what I have been keeping from you….drumroll please…..

I sure hope you clicked on play! No? oh come on! Play it! Did ya, did ya? PLAY IT!!! Okay! The drum rolled? Perfect!

The 2013 FAL will be hosted by Leanne at She Can Quilt! Awesome, right? She is one spectacular quilter! Just look at some of her work:

Great, no?!!!

It has always been my goal to move the FAL to another blog at the end of the year. It is important to touch as many quilters, knitters, and general crafters as possible. The best way to do that is to (a) get y’all to talk about it on your blogs and (b) move the FAL about and therefore touch other people’s followers. This project is not about me, its about getting projects done! So, as you can imagine in 2014 the Finish A Long will Move A Long…hehehe!

Here is what the FAL needs from you!! First and most important: CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATE!!!!! This is key!!! This will keep the sponsors, sponsoring – well that and you supporting them!!!

Other ways you can help: support the sponsors (a new list will be posted soon), volunteer to write a tutorial, support the sponsors, be a sponsor, support the sponsors, write about the FAL on your blog, support the sponsors, and did I mention how important it is to support our sponsors? Oh and if you have a podcast or other form of “talk about” mention our FAL and sponsors!!!

Leanne and I (of course I am still helping out) need all your help!!! I think it is only fair I mention that this year I get to actually participate….you think that will mean I will actually get something on my list finished??? Nope, not one item on my list in 2012 got finished! hehehe Several, if not all, are oh-so-close but none of them get the cigar so to speak!!! Can you imagine? But I digress!!!

OK to recap……Leanne at She Can Quilt is the 2013 hostess of the Finish A Long and we need your help!!! Of course there will be more information to follow after we finish up 2012 right here!!!!!

  4. ALthough I was not an active participator all of 2012 I do appreciate your being in charge of this. Leanne will be great and I already follow her so I am sure she will keep my butt in gear and help me Finish Along as the new year progresses! Thanks Rhonda!
