Further to my lunacy post I seem not to have mentioned that I also joined up to the BQL bag challenge. BQL was the first yahoogroup I joined, in 1999, and although I don't contribute as often as I once did I'm still a strong supporter!
The challenge is the first I've come across set up so that you don't have to participate every month. When you join you are sent a bag pattern, when you complete the bag you post a picture in the folder for that month and you are sent the next month' s pattern. So if I don't finish a challenge in any one month I can submit the next!
The pattern's are restricted to bql members but a blog has been set up to store each month's images here:
