Challenges for Days - By Date 1st November 2020

Well here in England we are heading back into full lockdown for at least 4 weeks.  Going to be strange as Scotland will have started their tier system while Wales is coming out of a circuit breaker lockdown.  Not sure how the rules are around the world but my guess we all need something to occupy us.  Here is the monthly, changed on the first of the month, list of challenges to  tempt you.  Stay Safe, Keep Well, & Have Fun.

The vast majority of challenges start on the 1st of the month, so that is a stand alone list. It will be followed by another list on the 8th, covering new challenges that started between the 2nd and the 8th of the month, another on the 15th covering those that started between the 9th and 15th and a final one on or around the 22nd of the month covering any that post later in the month.  This means that every challenge you see in each listing will be current and live.  To see challenges posted on other dates check the blog archive on the right or click the appropriate label, also on the right.

The challenges on this list run by Date, not Day.
As with all our lists we have tried to check the rules of each challenge (key in sidebar) but we strongly urge you to check for yourself.

Our lists are growing as we come across more challenges,
if you know of one we have not listed yet please tell us about it
either by leaving the info in a message below or send us an email at

Thank you to those who are finding us and adding challenges to our lists.
Have fun Crafting.
Thank you so much for joining us!
