Challenges, Sew-Ins & Swaps

I have decided to join in some challenges, a sew-in, and a swap. 

The challenges are at Patchwork Times ~
UFO challenge:  I'm not sure if i can still officially join but i never let that stop me before, so i'm going to do it anyway.  First you list your UFOs 1 - 12.  Then the lady who runs this blog, Judy, picks a number and that's the UFO you finish in that month.  If this is confusing, please, go to her site and she'll explain it much better.

Monocromatic challenge:  A color will be chosen each month, and that color and white (or a variation) is what you use to make your quilt, pillowcase, wallhanging, or whatever you want large or small.  This month's color is yellow.

The Sew-In is at Handmade by Heidi & Crafty Vegas Mom ~
One Friday each month Heidi and Bobbi have a sew-in.  Sign up; sew, cross stitch, craft, etc; talk about what you did on Saturday; and, see what everyone else has done.  They even have drawings for prizes!  I joined in one a long time ago & it was a lot of fun.

Finally, the Swap is at Another Little Quilt Swap ~
Just as the name suggests, you make a little quilt and swap with someone.  I haven't done this yet but watched the last two and a couple of things appealed to me.  One the deadline is very doable, you get to choose the quilt you want, there's no problem if you have to drop out, no pre-assigned partners, and i just really like the set up.  I guess that's more than a couple things but check it out for yourself.

All of these blogs are in my bloglist --->

I guess i really need to find a signature for this, huh?
