M-R and I were a bit disconcerted to see a few other Friday Finish linky parties going on, but thinking about it, there are a couple of things I need to remember.
1) This isn't about having ten thousand followers. TGIFF is for US to make US finish OUR quilts.We blog and quilt for enjoyment but have problems finishing. So it's not about getting a zillion people to link in. I could easily fall into the trap of promoting TGIFF so hard that I spend no time finishing quilts. Right now, I'm thinking "keep this short, you have two weeks until your next host and SOMETHING needs to be finished." The problem for me is choosing which WIP, which is why I need TGIFF! So here's a sneak peek of what I'm aiming to finish
2) What makes TGIFF different from other linky parties, is that you (yes YOU!) can take a turn at hosting. That means you can give yourself a deadline and got a little pressure to keep to it (so easy to just start a new project instead of finishing an old one). I work better like that. :) I'd feel guilty if I let M-R down. So I will have a finish, I promise. (Fingers crossed!). And I mean a Stage 3 finish (Stage 1 being top finished, 2 being quilted and 3 being bound, as someone commented on Erin's post). So TGIFF is for you too. :) To get a date, sign up on the hosting page. We have one week free left this year, so if you are way off having a finish but want to have one by the end of the year, that spot is still open. :)
That said, it would be nice to spread the love and find other interesting quilt-netty people, so we encourage anyone who links in with a TGIFF to add the button to their post and a link. Spread the love and spread the word!
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
