PhD Challenge... Care to play along?


Projects Half Done

I have so many PhDs that need to make it to the finish line this year! 2010, it has to happen! I thought I would challenge myself to a 6 month stint ending on June 30th, with you all as my witnesses, and thought some of you may want to play along with me.
I would love to have company!!! 8-)

I listed my PhDs in my right hand sidebar, in no particular order, that I wish to get done. As I finish them I will link viewers to the finished project's post.

If you care to join me in this challenge let me know. I will add you and the number of PhDs you are committing to in my sidebar... I will link viewers to your blogs from there for others to see your progress, cheer you on, and can oooo and ahhhh over your finishes.
Please make your PhD commitment list in your sidebar also... 8-)

When you finish a PhD I will mark it as "done" beside your name on my sidebar to keep track as to how many PhDs we all can get to the finish line in 6 months! 8-)

Feel free to use the "Phd Challenge" button to link back to my blog, preferably this post, for others to join in the fun...

Keeping my fingers crossed to have company...

My PhD Commitment...
Wish me luck... I need it! lol! 8-)

I tried OPAM last year and only finished two projects I think. I will watch your progress.

Myra I'm going to sign up for six also . . . this could be tough because I know I'm needing to also start at least three! Some of these have been on my list for a while (as you know!) and it's time to get them done. Thanks for pushing me. - Marlene

Edna said...

Hi Myra
I would also like to sign up. I have many more than 6 to do but I will aim for that for now. I do need the push (encouragement) to get some of these long term PhD's done for once!

Quilterrits said...

I have 6 projects I have to finish by June 30th. 3 have to be done by Valentine's Day, two by end of Feb, and the last one is a mystery to be finished with a bunch of other ladies in June. So count me in--Brenda, Quilter Raised in the South.

Apple Avenue Quilts said...

Good idea Myra. I have spent the last couple of days thinking about this one and decided that I might as well join in. I have 7 projects that have been hanging over my head for some time now, so hopefully I'll get them done and be able to fill the empty boxes with new projects.--Jill, Apple Avenue Quilts

Hi Myra: I'm taking a deep breath and signing up for the challenge. I think that it will be fun and a good way to get some long overdue PHD's done. I am aiming for five. My Nativity Scene, Round Robin Christmas Wallhanging, Red Hat Purse, Quilt Top from QC's Retreat, and one surprise.

free2quilt said...

Actually getting brave and going for one more.

Edna said...

Not sure how to let you know of finishes for this, but I have my first finish for the PhD challenge listed in my blog!

Brenda said...
