A Stitch In Time: April Finishes Linky Party

An idea not coupled with action will never get any bigger than the brain cell it occupied. –Arnold Glasow

Welcome to the April Finishes Linky Party! Thank you to everyone who linked up in March. There were so many great finishes and it was fun to visit all of your blogs and have a closer look! If you're new here, so glad to have you. Anything finished between 12:00 am on April 1st and 11:59 pm on April 30th can be added to this linky party. You have until through 10:00 am on May 1st to post about it and link up.

To participate in this month's linky party:
• Finish a project and blog about it.
• Scroll down to see what other bloggers are up to and link to your own finishes.
• Please include the April button in your blog post. Copy the code in the text box below and paste it somewhere in your post. The button is a link back here, so that other bloggers can find their way over and link up too.

• Each time you link up a finished project, you're entered to win the April giveaway, a jelly roll from the brand new line, Tradewinds by Lily Ashbury!

Tradewinds Jelly Roll

• Thank you to our sponsor:

The Fine Print {which might be boring but you really should read}:
• Projects must include stitching of some sort. For example: appliqué, crochet, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, practical sewing {garment construction, bags, curtains, etc.}, quilting.
• Projects must be completely finished. As in done, finito, nothing more to add, ready to use/display/give away.
• You can pick something new to do, but projects do not have to be started during the month. If you pick up a UFO, Ph.D, WIP and finish it during the month, it counts.
• Finishes must be completed during this month, but you have until 10:00 am MST on the 1st of the next month to link your post.
• Post about your finish and then link your specific post {instructions here} above. Links to your blog and not the individual post about your finished project will be deleted.
• Have more than one finish this month? Great! Post about each finish individually and then link the specific posts up separately. Each finish, and therefore each link you add, counts as one entry for this month's giveaway.
• If you've already posted about a finish for this month, there's no need to do a separate post. Just add the button to that post and link up.
• Please copy and paste the code below to include this month's button somewhere in your post {not your sidebar}.

April Finishes

• Don't have a blog? You can link from your flickr account. Just post a picture, include a little note about your finish and a link back here {code included below} in the description. Then join the linky party.

• Make sure to visit a few of the other links and leave them some love {ie, a comment}. A good rule of thumb is to visit two links for every one you include.
• Winner of the sponsored giveaway will be drawn randomly from among the links and announced by 8:00 pm MST on the 3rd of the following month.
• Instructions for making an index page to your finishes can be found here.
• Kindly consider changing your comment settings to the pop-up window option for faster and easier commenting for visitors to your blog. Instructions can be found here.

I just finished a quilt I'm super happy with, so I hunted around for a way to "shout it from the roof-tops" and found your blog. It's so great to be able to share each other's joy in a finished project!

Elizabeth, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you taking the time to comment on my blog posts. That must have taken you a lot of time and I just want you to know I really appreciated it! You are very kind.
