I just don't know what else to call it! And it's a humdinger of a situation. It involves our NYE UFO Challenge. Many of you know I've hosted this challenge the past 3 years, but this is a first. Let me explain...Michele,a long time friend(and an over achiever!) has pledged 10 projects. That's not unusual for Michele. Friend Carol, met Michele's challenge last year and is repeating it again this year with 10 projects! And we all know the time is shorter this year, only 2 months and 13 days from from when we started. Recently Friend Clare caught up with our challenge and commented on Michele's lofty goals in an email. She also remarked,"Right - okay - deal.If Michelle manages to finish all those UFO's within the time scale, I promise I finish the Q4L quilts I've got piling up. Howzat!" Having to add fuel to the fire, I suggested that Clare join us. And if she could finish the "pile" she has, I would make another quilt for Q4L here in the States. I just got this response back from Clare..." I have 6 requests, but 7 quilts (twins - very sad) plus one for Bumblebeans Basics = 8. One top already done, or it may be 2. Put me down for 9 to cover it and the challenge starts WHEN AND ONLY WHEN Michelle finishes her 10!" Having a senior moment, plus the excitement of such a "situation", I'm not totally clear(in my head) if Clare is pledging to finish by NYE, or start once Michele accomplishes her goal. I'm sure she will be letting me know...LOL And remember gals, I'm NOT the one putting pressure on you to have FINISHES...that lovely task is up to each of us, for ourselves!! Happy stitching everyone! Hugs for all!!******Clarification: Clare will hit her pile of Q4L as she stated, IF AND WHEN Michele completes her 10 challege pledged projects. AND then, if Clare completes hers, I've pledged another Q4L, to be given here in the States.
