A WIP is a Work In Progress. It's all those projects we've started, and never got around to finishing before starting a new (and therefore more interesting) project.... Some of us have things stashed all over waiting to be finished. This CAL is to encourage us to finish what we've started. Feel free to join in, if you could benefit. We'd love to have you!!!

OK, here's our totals for this week...

 

GOLD MEDAL TIE AT +1

a stitchintime and Braxxi

 

SILVER MEDAL AND SHOOT THE MOON TIE AT 0

fc1123 and basjordan

We all did so well!!! It's awesome that nobody started more projects than they finished this week.

 

Faith, do you want me to post, since we're tied? I surely don't want to wrestle you for it....

 

I was thinking (which always gets me in trouble...) that we might benefit from posting only ytd scores. That way, we can admire our over-all progress every week. What do you think?:think

Yeah you can do it I won't wrestle you for it. That's not a bad idea to only post ytd totals.

:waving Hello! I was on vacation last week so I didn't get to post. I didn't start any project nor did I finish any of my big WIPs either. :embar I just added rows to most of them.

 

So did I miss anything? Something about just posting YTD scores instead? :huh

crocheting4mygirls, we are debating just posting the YTD, since the WTD doesn't change that much. I think we can get a better feel for how much we've progressed if we concentrate on the YTD total.

 

Speaking of which, I am going to get off this computer, and start something new. :blush:devil I am very excited about it. I'm testing a pattern for a friend.

 

Have fun with your :crocheting everyone!:manyheart:hug

Well, I have just the YTD scores right now for 4 people.

 

+9 fc1123 - gold medal - What a WIP-buster!!!

+5 basjordan - silver medal - good work

0 Braxxi - tied for bronze - steady as a rock

0 a stitchintime - tied for bronze - keeping on an even keel

 

What do you think? Is it good to just look at the YTD, or do you need the WTD to keep you motivated?

 

My (not so) humble opinion... I think we are all doing great, and getting a negative number because you start one project, when you've been very good about finishing one before you start one, is kind of punishing.

Wow! look at us go!:lol

 

I think I need to finish with charity weekend, and then line up some WIPs and make a push to finish them! :thinkI don't even know how many I even have... I suppose that would be a good thing to know, right? :rofl

 

Great job to all of us!!!

:ghug

 

...and Beth, if you want a break, I would be happy to do the scores next week!:hug
