    I'll give it a go again; hopefully a bit more productive in 2019, though still optimistic for the remainder of this year....

    For example, if I won something beginning with D in February, would I have to choose whether I tick off 'D' or Feb?
    Or would I complete 'something beginning with D' AND have it count towards the Feb challenge?

    Congrats on your win. Don't forget September's challenge is something made of metal.

    Thank you! Will cross it off of that then as the monthly challenges are always hard to win in the timeframe.
