Challenges For Days - Wednesday challenges

Some sad news, before I begin. If you missed our Tuesday post, you may not have heard that one of our team,  Mary Trainer, passed away a few days ago. Although she had been unwell for some time, her death has come as a surprise and shock to us all and we hope you will join us in sending condolences to her family and friends.

I would like to thank Kathy for updating last week's list for me.

As always, remember to check that your entry to a challenge qualifies.  We might have missed a recent change in the rules. If you do spot something or have information to share with us, please feel free to leave us a comment or drop us a line at ChallengesForDays@yahoo.com  

Remember to check the guidelines for each challenge - for some of them you need to follow their blog (but you probably already do, so that you don't miss anything!) or leave a comment. We don't have room to tell you more than the basics here!
