It's another finish for...ALYoF

I do not know where August went but I do know it went by way too fast.
I finished my August ALYoF is always a good feeling
when you reach a goal you set for yourself.
Here is the before picture...they had been pinned for a long time.

The pins are gone and all are stitched.

I also got the Vintage Tin blocks traced onto the background fabric.
I am so glad that is finished.
I used a black Frixon pen to do the tracing...
Sorry...the pictures are not good, I'll just show you a few.

I am linking up to ALYoF - August finishing party
with Melissa and Shanna.
Thank you ladies for hosting A Lovely Year of Finishes.
I know I would not have finished these blankets
 or got the blocks traced if it wasn't for you hosting ALYoF.

WINNER WINNER and my August goal for ALYoF

The winner of an alphabet Rag-tag Stitchin' pattern is

Stitching By The Lake
Congratulations Marlene

I've sent Marlene an email and she is thrilled.

For my August goal for 
A Lovely Year of Finishes I am going to
sew the binding on 3 fleece blankets.
The satin binding has been pinned to the fleece for a few years...
yes a few years!!
If I have a deadline...I will get them finished.
I would also like to have the blocks traced for
Crabapple Hill's Vintage Tin pattern...
stitching will come later...maybe September's goal.

There are lots of links at Sew BitterSweet Designs or Fiber of All Sorts
who have posted goals for August...check them out.
Have a wonderful Friday!!
