ha ha I am now up to 64 items I want to make, but I am saving them in case I need to substitute!

I have to stop reading and browsing this site!

I would get depressed if I took pics of my fabric stash...I do save a small scrap of every fabric, though, and have made pages with them that will someday be bound together in a book!  But, that is not a project I can finish anytime soon! Are you joining this dragonflywer (please?)...Smiley

Looking at the list kaz just put up, is there info somewhere on making laundry soap? I'm really trying to go eco this year, kind of a resolution I guess. Part of why I want to make my own soaps and balms and learn to sew....oh, yeah, I'm also gonna force myself to make more plarn bags for groceries and such-making the plarn is such a pain!

Hi brynnegrl - this blog has some awesome green ideas, including laundry soap!  http://down---to---earth.blogspot.com/

Nice! Thanks, Kaz! Bookmarked!

I have found some of those tips watching 'How Clean is Your House' on BBC, and they work!

Okay, gotta add the laundry soap to my list-at least once!

Okay, I'm back with a partial list!

1. Make pattern/doll that uses plastic armature
2. Skirt for work
3. Summer shirts
4. Jacket for friend
5. Birthday present for RevolutionaryGirl (her birthday is Jan 6 so I better get on that)
6. Questing Beast plushie (I've been meaning to make one for a while)
7. Learn to use resin
8. Sewing machine cover

Yeah, the list is short right now, but I always come up with more and more things I need to make as I go along.

I did the 2009 craftalong and complete it. I will also include swap projects because in the past that was the bulk of my crafting. This year I promise to keep a more organized list Smiley My list is short because I add as I go along. The items in parenthesis are yet to be made. Also, the WIPs I am listing still need a considerable amount of work put into them. For those of you worried about multiples it's all a matter of your own opinion. i.e. I listed each time when I made 20 ATCs and I made a total of 11.5 bottles of Kahlua but I think I listed them only as 5 projects.

1. (Xena Chakram Necklace) WIP
2. (Art Credo Self Portrait) WIP
3. (20 ATCs)
4. (set up shop on etsy)
5. (master a hard bound book) I think I understand the issue I am having
6. (9 hardcover journals) WIP
7. (Make something from my jewelry stash)
8. (Make wool dryer lint balls from leftover yarn)

I'm totally in on this one. I kept seeing last year's around april (i was about 7 months preggo, and a senior in college) and thought there was no way i could ever join. But then I graduated, quit working, and started staying at home, and I think I got pretty close to 50 without ever joining. Sad
So here i am!

I don't plan on including swap items, but definitely gifts, cuz I'm getting a headstart on christmas, and even though I say that every year, this time I mean it!

So here's my shortlist:
1. receiving blanket quilt (or quilted pillows?)
2.t-shirt hexagon quilt using this tutorial: http://www.thimbleblossoms.com/Thimble_Blossoms/Hexagon_Quilt_Tutorial.html
3.granny square slippers for grandma
   (have to learn crochet for this one)
4.legend of zelda embroidery, based on a pic found online. check this out:

   (i haven't decided if i'll keep it b&w, or fill in all the color, eek!)
5. diaper bag w/pattern & materials bought before my son was born (june 20, 2009; oops)
6. finish ariel embroidery, is a wip that i love, but haven't been able to get back to
7. needle roll
8. altered book
9. flip-top bella mittens from ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/mariamaria/bellas-mittens-3
10. secret father's day gifts, sometimes my hubby cruises on here, shh!
11. calendars, christmas gifts, from septemberhouse etsy shop.
12. knit hat for husband
13.not really a project, but go through craft books for more ideas i have a bunch of knit, crochet, & needlwork books given to me by my husband's grandmother, think they're from the 70s, but they have some interesting projects

i'm sooo in!! i've started my list, but i need to know... do school projects count? (i go to school for textiles..)


I do personal swaps!
« Reply #89 on: December 30, 2009 12:49:17 PM »

I'm definitely going to be in on this.  My list is somewhere around here, but I know my first two priorities will be dresses that I'm making.  One just requires adding the skirt to the bodice, but the other one will take a little bit more time.  But I'm so excited because my Christmas gift was a sewing machine!  I've been borrowing my dorm's but finally I get to use my own!

Interested in Nancy Drew, Harry Potter, or any kind of personal swap! Smiley
