Welcome one and all to the inaugural month of the Fully-Finished Gallery SAL 2019! This is my first attempt at a link-up so please bear with me if there are teething problems.
The aim of this SAL is to encourage all cross stitchers to fully-finish at least some of their completed cross stitch projects and proudly show them off via this gallery. These might be projects which have been gathering dust for weeks/months/years and/or projects which have recently been completed; it doesn't matter. But bearing in mind how many unfinished projects there must be out there, this SAL shouldn't have a shortage of entries!
Whether you are a regular fully-finisher, an ad-hoc fully-finisher or a reluctant fully-finisher, you are all welcome and I look forward to seeing your entries over the coming months. If you are unsure of anything, the FFG SAL 2019 page at the top of my blog may help, or just ask.
So let's start with my offerings.
Since the beginning of the year I have fully-finished three pieces. They are all from this year's projects rather than from my Box Of Shame, but at least it means I'm keeping up to date with fully-finishing as I'm going. All three have all been finished as little reversible hanging ornaments, a new-to-me technique for 2019 and one which is gradually growing on me.

Please link-up using the URL of your FFG SAL post and not the home page of your blog, adding a thumbnail of a finish and either your name or your blog name as the caption. The link-up will remain open for 10 days, closing at 6am UK time on 20th February.
And please don't forget to follow other links and see what fellow fully-finishers have been up to; you never know, other projects may give you an idea for your next finish!
Once the link-up has closed I shall update the side of my blog with the number of entrants and entries.
Next month's link-up will go live at 6am GMT on 10th March so you have plenty of time to fully-finish another project (or more). See you there!
