SAL’ing and Rethinking Exemptions

  • Posted on November 22, 2006 at 12:28 pm

Michelle, Carol, Nicole, Andrea and I have decided to SAL together in the coming year on Just Nan’s Barnabee’s Quest design (all 3 parts).

We will be starting on February 1st, 2007. This gives us some time for life to settle down after the holidays and allows us some extra time to get everything kitted up. Anyone else have this design and want to join in? We’re very excited! 😀

Also, regarding yesterday’s post, Coral was kind enough to not lull me into complacency on my exemptions. So, following her suggestion, I am going to add at least 1 more project to my list for every exemption that I take. In fact, if I’m really determined to be true to the purpose of the challenge (to reduce the amount of unstitched stash that we own), I should actually add 2 projects for every 1 exemption. If I go for this option, I would be able to count any exemptions that I actually manage to stitch (which would allow me to count the Whimzi designs that I buy for my cubicle at work).

I went upstairs and tallied the number of exemptions that I’ve made use of abused to date and the grand total was 9. I’ve taken far more liberty with the whole exemption concept than I had realized. So, that makes my challenge either a 59 project challenge or a 68 project challenge! EEEP! That is a very sobering thought and one which will make me think long and hard before I take any more exemptions. Exactly as it should be.

So, let me take a deep breath and announce that I am now doing a 68 Project Challenge! With only 13 projects completed to date, this means I have actually lost ground towards my goal and need to complete 5 more projects just to catch back up to 50 projects to do. I’ve managed to dig myself into a hole. *sigh* Mea culpa. I made my bed, now it’s time to lay in it. I had better get stitching!

Great, thanks Coral… Had to keep me honest, didn’t you? 😉 Seriously, though, thank you.
