A Stitch In Time: June Finishes Linky Party

Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It's not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it's when you've had everything to do, and you've done it.
–Margaret Thatcher


Welcome to the June Finishes Linky Party! There were so many beautiful finishes in May and I can't wait to see what you all work on in June! Anything finished between 12:00 am on June 1st and 11:59 pm on June 30th can be added to this linky party. You have through 10:00 am on July 1st to post about it and link up.

To participate in this month's linky party:
• Finish a project and blog about it {finished as in done, finito, nothing more to add, ready to use/display/give away}.
• Scroll down to see what other bloggers are up to and link to your own finishes.
• Please include the June 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 June giveaway, a rolie polie of Millie's Closet by Lori Holt for Riley Blake Designs! I'm so excited! I'm a huge Lori Holt fan!

Millie's Closet

• Thank you to The Fat Quarter Shop for sponsoring our giveaway!



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}.

June 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 have to thank Amy who revealed this great linky party for June. What a great quote from Maggie T. I finally got around to watching Meryl Streep's portrayal of her whilst finishing up my Zip Organiser yesterday. Great screenplay and acting (love Jim Broadbent!)
