3. Draft dodger for mom for her birthday. (+ #43 and #44)

6. Cloth grocery bags!
7. Organize my crafting stuff (again.)

Kaz I love the colors you picked for the discloths! How does the purse organizer work? Is it pockets?

Yep - sorry it's such a bad picture.

I used this pattern, though I made mine not quite as long.  I gave one to my grandmother for Christmas too, and I need to make one for me (really, it's a situation in my purse!)

Added a few more items to my list (haven't crossed any off yet though).  I like the satisfaction of making things for swaps (and occationally gifts) hoping that others will love them and appreciate them, so I don't tend to do a lot of 'me' projects.  I'm hoping this will help me accomplish some of the things I've wanted to complete.

kaz814--looks like you are doing well!  Nice colors on the dishcloths and thanks for the purse organizer link!

I have way too much stuff for one organizer! ha ha  I wonder if three of those would fit in my bag!  Yours is very lovely in blues!

yea, that's why I'm not including swap stuff on my list.  I keep forgetting about making stuff for me or my dd!  The list is helping though Smiley
I added another thing to my list and then crossed it off.  Fleece hats and scarf for friends going skiing.  I'll try to post pix tonight.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

Hey Kaz, yay for the dishcloths.  I love knitted dishclothes and yours look great.

I finally finished my chalk board door, and posted pictures.  You can see it here.

I can't wait to write my lists on my new chalk board.  Another item off my list.  I've been wanting to do this for three years.

I remarked on your post--but seriously, what a great idea and it looks great!

Now you have no excuse not to use it for at least a weekly to do list-ha ha!

Your chalkboard door looks great!  I started one on a cabinet in my kitchen when we moved in almost 18 months ago.  I painted it with magnetic paint first (which, if anyone uses I would recommend getting shaken up at the hardware store.  I shook and shook and stirred and stirred, and it is still barely magnetic, and the bottom is super thick with whatever is in there that makes it magnetic).  I think that's another project I should add to my list - finish chalkboard cabinet!

Is the paint easy to repaint over?  I was wondering because I have a small knee wall in my kitchen that I would love to be able to let the little ones draw on when they come over...but I would have to repaint it when I sold the house or when they got too big to bother with it...
