A Stitch In Time: March Finishes Linky Party

Having once decided to achieve a certain task, achieve it at all costs of tedium and distaste. The gain in self-confidence of having accomplished a tiresome labor is immense.
–Thomas Arnold Bennett

Welcome to the March Finishes Linky Party! Thank you to everyone who linked up in February. I had so much fun seeing all of your finishes last monght and I can't wait to see what you all get up to this month! If you're new here, so glad to have you. Anything finished between 12:00 am on March 1st and 11:59 pm on March 31st can be added to this linky party. You have until through 10:00 am on April 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 March 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 March giveaway, an Avalon by Jason Yenter Fat Quarter bundle in your choice of the Historia colorway or the Excalibur colorway. {Sigh. I really wish I could enter my own giveaway this month!} Finish a project, link it up and you could win!

• Thank you to our giveaway 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}.

• 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.

Thank you for the giveaway! I love love love that fabric! I had not seen it till I saw your blog. I will definitely have to grab some yardage of it. I have been so busy redoing my sewing room and setting up my new frame I guess I had not kept up with the new fabrics coming out. I love your blog and have linked up your button on my own blog. Again, thank you! One more reason to get sewing!
