Recently, while reading Rachel's blog, What seems like crazy on an ordinary day, I ran across a reference to Finish-It February. I had never seen that term before though I have been following stitching blogs for nearly eight years now and blogging myself for a little over three years. I am still a little unclear as to whether it refers to finishing the cross-stitching on a piece or doing the final finishing, i.e.: sewing and assembly or framing. But I am going to observe this practice as if the later definition applies and focus on doing some final sewing & assembly finishes this month. I'd like to do one or two finishes a week. I have a tote bag that just needs straps and a lining, three ornaments that need to be assembled and an emery strawberry that needs to be finished ... as well as another 18 projects in the finishing basket, but we won't go into that at the moment. I may have to follow up with a Finish-It March, April, May ... well, you get the idea.
