Looks like a good, challenging list to me.
I'll be doing my best to have an entry every month. Might not be the best you've ever seen, but if I don't try Ill never improve.

Looking forward to seeing all the good work everyone puts in.

Best of luck to all.

Well it looks pretty straight fwd. to me , I cant see any problems with what has to be turned. 8)

I'm glad Februarys was just the one ball if it had been two I could have made a right horlicks of it :lol: :lol:

Blister your outlay will be a lot more this year, what with having to post to Ireland.Maybe it would be best

to hold on too the plaques and post them altogeather at the end of the year :roll: :roll: .

Well enough of the bulls#@t really looking fwd. to 2012 challange have had a great time following the

monthly challenge throughout 2011 and hope I can commit to the 2012 every month I will be doing my darndest.

Congrats to all the winners of last year, but more so to all who entered. =D> =D> now

cold, today? no way!

otoh I had 18 for lunch so I didn't get turning either.

Back to the OP - whilst I will admit to not having a clue as to what a weed pot is (althought weed and pot compute... #-o ) it does look a good mix of the tried, and the to be tried...loking forward to it.

No there's a few that I'm not sure of so it should be a learning curve all round.

This months project only has a maximum size , no minimum size

Problem with pens is that you can get a pen kit that is plane, or you can get very glitzy and you buy that part so no skill involved except buying a high quality kit
