Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday

     Hi Everyone!  Welcome to my blog and my first time hosting the link up for TGIFF.  Today I'm happy to share with you my completed Cover for my Quilter's Planner.

       I followed the instructions in the Zippy Cover Tutorial from Amanda at What the Bobbin, but I made a slightly more basic version.  I used Cat Dream by Lizzy House in black for the main fabric in my version.  I love this fabric with it's whimsical cats and plants.



     I picked up some of the colours in the print and added a striped border to the  cover.  I put a pocket on the inside cover with co-ordinating mouse fabric and added a polka dot 
ribbon for a place marker.




     I'm finding my planner to be a useful tool in helping me to organize my quilting and blogging time and I love my new cover.  It's my third finish for quarter one of the 2016 year of lovely finishes.  Here's the original list.  This planner cover is cat approved.



     Now it's your turn.  What  lovely finishes do you have to share today.  Big or small we'd love to see them all.  Link up your blog posts to the link up below...but don't forget the most important part, the visiting.  Visit others in the link up and share the comment love.  Don't forget to share the link to this post on your blog.

I love the fabric you chose for your cover. I opted not to put the outside zippered pocket on mine, but am wishing I had now. Good thing it's cat approved...when cats don't approve I start to worry :) Thanks for hosting the party for us today.

The pockets for pencils and pens is a great idea for a notebook cover - must make one!

Your cover is great Lisa! And the stamp of cat approval is the cat's meow, LOL. I happen to have that very fabric! Going to grow up into a quilt for a very dear friend.
