A Stitch In Time: May Finishes Linky Party

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best. –Theodore I. Rubin

Welcome to the May Finishes Linky Party! I am absolutely overwhelmed with the many, many finishes in April. If you didn't get a comment from me yet, don't worry. I'll be around in the next few days to leave you some love and thank you for linking up. In the meantime, if you haven't had a chance to click on over and see some of the amazing projects that were finished in April, check out a few. You'll definitely be inspired.

Then get working on your May projects! Anything finished between 12:00 am on May 1st and 11:59 pm on May 31st can be added to this linky party. You have through 10:00 am on June 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 May 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 May giveaway, four charm packs of Petite Odile by French General!

• A huge 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}.

• 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.

Talk about me being behind on life this month. I am finally linking up my completed quilts for the month 10 of them. I cant belive that I did not link up my quilts to any ones site this month. Oh I need to spend more time with my blog and less time distracted quilting (wow did I just say that) Any way month is almost over and I am getting caught back up.
