You may have noticed that some of the posts for the 25 Motif Challenge are extremely long. That happens when I get busy with things like vacations and renovations and can't do updates in a timely manner. From my perspective it means that when I do get to the update it's going to take an enormous amount of time. For example, Dec 30th's post took over 5 hours to complete and when I'm busy, that seems like an enormous time suck.
I have noticed that we have gone from just under 100 participants down to 25 and that most of the items displayed are also being posted on Facebook. So I'm wondering if this challenge blog has become redundant and if so, maybe it's time to close it down.
Your comments and input would be appreciated. Please let me know what you think in the comments.
Only some of the people signed up for the challenge provided feedback. Only two or three really want the blog to continue, but most are ambivalent, so it seems like it's time to let it go. I have tried to keep up with all the lovely tatting since August of 2006 and have been introduced to some people I wouldn't have gotten to know otherwise. Those who are still actively pursuing their goal of 25 motifs in a year can still keep up with one another by clicking on the links in the sidebar on the right. As for me, I think my time can be better spent elsewhere, so I will no longer be doing updates.
Thanks for your participation and all the wonderful laces you have shared with us over the last 12 years. Sharon Briggs
