Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

This goal has kept me VERY busy

for the past two months.

I had several quilt commissions, bags, cushion covers and wall hangings to make.

This year looks like it will be equally productive :)

Another cute...

dino bag for Tidds who has never lost her fascination of them ;-)

next will be a dinosaur quilt..!

Cushion cover...

for a Christmas in July gift ~

Suffolk Puff Bag...

that I made for my sister!

Nature's Corner ~

... a lovely snuggly quilt that I have decided to keep for myself. Perfect for winter evenings…!

Cushion cover...

made for a friend’s birthday ~

Peter Rabbit ~

I made this quick and easy quilt for a dear friend who is expecting her first little bubby …... it is heading off to the U.K…!

Heart and Home ~

.... finally complete..

This has been quite an adventure and labour of love. It has taken a few months to finish, but goodness there are a zillion pieces in this quilt that all had to be cut and put back together again.

I am giving this to Ume and Bren for their guest bedroom :)

I made a lovely

quilted bag and scarf for my sister’s coming birthday.

I simply can’t believe that I didn’t take a photo of them both. Sent them off and then the light bulb went on – omg!

Anyway, I will ask her to take a photo when she receives them, and hopefully I will be able to post it here…!

Floral Shopping Bag...

.... this is for my mother-in-law for Mother’s Day Sunday week. I managed to complete it today ready for posting tomorrow!
