The only rule is to have fun, keep an eye for you threads and be always in stitches.
Pick 15 projects that are ALREADY STARTED and FINISH them.
ha, there you are, my challenge to you. Not new ones coz we all know there are far more than 15 to which we would like to start.

Above is my list of WIP's....there are a few more in the crevices of this house, safely tucked away for a more brave day! This is what I will start with...knowing myself the way I do, and with the list of new things I want to start, I am relatively sure that I will maybe finish one of the above, and on the wind of a recent finish, will want to pull out a new one! SO, that said, I am thinking I want to assign two days a week, to possibly, if I choose to, start one of these new things. That will give me a bit more freedom from the rigors of a 'chore' list! 

Thanks for the opportunity, Jayne! I am so looking forward to seeing progresses made from everyone! I know it will be so motivating and encouraging to be a part of this challenge for 2011!

Jan from Indiana


  1. Jan,

    Just curious, where are you located in Indiana? I am originally from Anderson, about 35 miles north of Indy on I-69. DH and I relocated to Deep South Texas in 1998 for warmer winters and decided to make this home. Oldest son lives in Corydon, in the southern part of the state, just north of the Ohio River.

  2. Good luck with your challenge! I look forward to seeing those WIP's come together and become beautiful finishes!

  3. I like your idea if having a day (or two) to start something new - sometimes I need that little joy!

    Mary in MN

  4. Elaine~ I live In Terre Haute, about 45 minutes south of Indy off I-70! Corydon isn't that awfully far from here...

  5. Mary~ I too need that, especially after finishing a project..almost like giving myself permission to start something new!

  6. I got your back, Dah'lin and you know I will be cheering you on every day! xox :)
