Talking of challenges, I've been making Jane Eboral's TIAS. No pictures to show and I'm a little behind. I definitely have to be awake a little longer than I have been before I work on it. It's not that hard, but I'm making it hard! I still have absolutely no clue what it will be. Check out how everyone is doing here. Maybe one of you can figure out where she's heading with this : )
I've gotten several comments on the picture in my last post, the one with the edging. A few people have indicated they would like the pattern. Okay, you asked, I give in. It was made in DMC white size 10 several years ago. This is a very simple pattern that, I think, is mine. If anyone has seen it before somewhere else I'll be glad to give credit where it belongs. I make up a lot of edgings and rarely use a pattern from someone else (usually because I'm starting it without a pattern book around and/or because I can't find one that fits what I have in mind) so I probably designed this one, too. Note that the picots are generous, which was intentional. You are welcome to make them any size you want.

Good luck! As always, beware of mistakes lurking! I would love to hear from anyone that makes this. And do let me know if you find any of those lurking mistakes. Nasty critters, those. I'll take a broom to 'em and chase 'em off!
P.S. Thanks TattingChic for correcting me on the designer of "Heart's Desire". My pattern has Georgia Seitz web address at the bottom - my oops and my apologies to Susan Fuller.
