Yah!  Thanks Liz.  Not sure if I'll do tthem all, but more than last year.

thanks so much, I went ahead and made up my own weekly challenges but this will be great to hang on to for the future.


I think I will make my own challenge list based on ones i had ideas and/or fabric for from last year and seasonally appropriate.  I should be able to combine some too.  For instance my accessory challenge is red

Thanks for posting Liz - I think that after I tackle my Christmas sewing (ahem....), I'll go back and do the challenges I missed.  I think I did 34 or 35, so that only leaves 18.  Oh my.
