★ Finish Along 2018 Q4 ★


This has not been a good year for finishes from my list with zero in Q1, Q2 & Q3 and to be honest not much hope of any in Q4.

I have amended the list slightly from Q3 but still it is a hope rather than a reality.  On a positive note I will have a head start on lots of great projects to complete in 2019.  So here is my Finish Along list for Q4 2018
