Link-up for Fully Finished Gallery SAL - September 2019

Hello all!

It's the 10th of the month so time for another Fully Finished Gallery SAL.

This is the place which will hopefully encourage you to fully-finish off one or more of your cross stitching projects which may have been recently completed or sitting in a bag or box or cupboard or drawer etc. for months or years, neglected and not out on display as it/they should be.

The link-up for this SAL opens on the 10th of each month and stays open for 10 days, so you have plenty of time to turn those UFOs into FFOs and join in.

So far this year there have been over 300 projects entered into this SAL, many of which may not have otherwise been FFO'd. Thank you for keeping this SAL populated!

I'm trying to play catch-up, since my own FFOing has been quite poor recently, mainly because of having a different routine over the summer. Excuses aside, here are my achievements since the previous link-up:

1) August In Peridot, August's birthstone of the month was finished like all the other birthstones so far this year:

2) Autumn Bird was one of my Summer Of New Starts and finished very soon after being started. It's been fully-finished to match the Spring and Summer versions, with coordinating fabric and cord:

3)Autumn Twirls was my August Smalls SAL piece, adapted from November Twirls by Bent Creek. Given the fabric, I think it's now obvious why I swapped out the colours of the leaves for my own choices. I wanted some of the fabric showing at the front and had an urge to add more autumn-coloured buttons, which I did in the corners. There's a piece of wadding for a bit of puffiness and the whole thing is attached to thick card, backed with the same autumnal-twirly fabric.

And that's it! I was worried at the beginning of the month that your host would let you down so it's a big phew that I haven't!!

Now it's over to you to show what you've been finishing this month.

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 September.

Mister Linky's Magical Widgets -- Thumb-Linky widget will appear right here!
This preview will disappear when the widget is displayed on your site.
If this widget does not appear, click here to display it.

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 FFG SAL 2019 page with the number of entrants and entries.

Let's hope you've all had a successful month although, with it being summer, I'm assuming your time may have been spent enjoying the sun instead!

Next month's post will go live on 10th October at 6am UK time as usual. Hope to see you there!

Take care,
Rachel x
