irresistible

It is possible to be competitive with yourself.
This is the only way to explain my passion for Guild Challenges.
Each month, a member of the quilt guild I belong to issues a challenge. We must make a quilt incorporating a block and color of her choice; Monkey Wrench in reds, Rail Fence in purples, Flying Geese in pastels. There are no prizes for participants nor shame for those who decline to join and yet I find the invitation irresistible. Not only that, but I find myself adding my own additional challenge. I must incorporate a technique that is new to me. Be truly challenged. It has been exhilarating.
Learning is such a delightful thing isn't it.
