10/25/50 Project Challenge

I have decided to join the 10/25/50 projects challenge.

The Rules:

  • Have fun reducing your pattern stash.
  • There is no time limit- people have different size projects they would like to work on.
  • Thou shall not purchase any new patterns until 10, 25, or 50 projects have been stitched.
  • Pattern size does not matter.
  • This challenge can also apply to knitting, beading, sewing and crocheting patterns.
  • You can make some exemptions. My exceptions are that I am allowed to buy stash for inclusion in exchange packages and I can buy supplies needed to complete projects on my list as long as I absolutely can't substitute something using my existing stash.
  • Gifts, gift cards, trades, RAKs (stash sent by others randomly) and patterns bought with gift money are not a violation of this challenge.
  • Freebies count as part of your total and you can aquire them at any point.
  • You do not have to declare the projects you intend to work on. (If listing would make you feel better please do so)
  • The offical start date of this challenge for me was October 1, 2006.

    Here is my list (30 not 25) in no particular order. I actually have a list of 50 items but I am committing to stitching and completing 25 of the projects listed before buying any new stash for myself.
