Ha ha!  one and a half done already!  I finished my #25...and halfway finished #38.

1) There are not enough rainbows in this world, and for sure not enough patchwork skirts like  this one.  I will be making one.
2) tampon case (maybe x4, one for each of my sisters and my mother)
3) yoga pants from t-shirt (I also plan on losing 40 lbs this years, one can never have too many cheap workout pants to help with that goal!)
4) a wallet.  No specific type in mind yet.
5) wash clothes (crochet, my own simple pattern)
6) dish rags (there is a difference, so these are two seperate posts, lol)
7) de-stash as much as I possibly can, and quickly as possible!
8 ) make and wear an entire outfit
9) Make a king sized quilt and love it! I am tired of starting quilts only to hate them halfway through. I may go with a rainbow theme for my room and the hubby will just have to grin and bear it.  Right?
10) Begin making ATC's and inchies, again with a rainbow theme
11) Finish an altered book
12) begin an art journal.  (On the first post of this thread, the writer mentioned an "everything" journal, with writing, art, inchies, fabric, everything in it.  I may do this instead of just an art journal.)
13) Log cabin lap quilt in muted colors.
14) Learn to make undies!
15) Bathroom organization and redecoration - it needs it in the worst way!
16) Create a reading corner somewhere in the house with a comfy chair, a lamp and a shelf.
17) Set up my new crafting space after convincing hubby to let me have it (lol)
18) Make reusable bowl covers
19) make reusable "paper" towels (find the link in this thread to them first, obviously)
20) Reusable sandwich wraps for the hubby and the kiddo and I to take on picnics
21) make at least 10 grocery and produce bags.  Our local stores are starting to charge for plastic bags, and if I gotta pay for them anyway, I'd rather use my own adorable ones!
22) Make dryer balls
23) speaking of which, learn to felt wool
24) and learn to reclaim it from sweaters at the thrift stores.
25) sew a crochet hook/rag rug tool holder and NOT lose it.
26) make a toothbrush area-sized rug based on these amazing tuts
27) for the art/everything journal, I need to learn to bind better.
28) also, I really want to focus on taking pictures and posting the projects I actually do.  I don't know if that counts as a whole project or not, so I may take it off my list eventually, but I really want to work on being consistent with this one.
28) Make paper at home with the paper making kit I bought LAST year (procrastinate much? lol)
29) make some art work for my living room
30) make some couch and floor cushions for my living room.
31) make remote control organizers (2, one for living room, one for bedroom)
32) Make my mom's paperback book cover
33) make a bible cover
34) make a ziplock-bag folder thing (I don't know where to find it online, I looked all over but can't find it yet.  Donna Dewberry made one on this show on Cutterstv and it was AWESOME.) with a hard back insert for writing on
35) make the DD a twirly skirt (rainbowy?)
36) make the DD a rag doll with blankets and pillows and accessories (x2, the other for my niece)
37) make the nephew a fun toy (or taggie blanket) so he doesn't feel unloved after the girls get their presents!
38) make my own Swiffer wet jet refill solution and covers. ( i made my own refill solution, just need to stitch up some covers now.) Talked about here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334632.10
39) Make a memo board for my sewing corner.
40) make a sewing machine cover
41) make a wrap/sweatshirt/jacket out of the fabric I bought for this purpose four weeks ago.

Still don't have pics of my crochet project, but there is basically no sunlight outside and since the only camera I have atm is my cell, there isn't a good chance of getting any decent shots.

That's a lovely afghan! The one I made had to be mended after washing.
It was also red-heart yarn. I wasn't happy with the pilling I got from washing it. So... I caution you to use a tumbler-style washer, and don't put anything with it. Plus plenty of fabric softener, and dry it on medium , only till JUST dry. 20-30 minutes max.
But, it looks like you did a fine job joining your pieces!
And, I really love the bright colors!
As for the sweater... I just discovered I had not matched my stitch count going up the front. One side of crochet edging had too many loops. SO... I am about to sit down and fix it. I thought I'd get the edging done before doing the sleeves. Just to break up the project and get a little immediate gratification! There will be photos... I'll post some progress pics soon.

Thanks KLKing and for the advice. I hope I dont have any lose threads after washing. I did a pretty good job of weaving ends, I know this cause I was cursing the whole time about how much I hate weaving in ends. Embarrassed Good luck on the sweater. Sometimes I dont mind pulling out stitches, especially if I know its worth while in the end. Also if its for someone else. I seem to be a perfectionist when it comes to projects for others.


Love your apron & photo holder DeannaLynn06. I should put those on my list also, great idea!

I got another project done from my list!!  Well, sort of done, this was really just the first step of a bigger project!

My first coffee filter rose:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=334819.0



The bigger plan is to make a whole bouquet of them in purple and white to go on top of a coffee tin filled with bath goodies, kind of like these christmas gifts I made: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=331501.msg3828932#msg3828932


This is for a wedding gift. 

Inside the tin is going to be bath melts like this  http://www.instructables.com/id/Chocolate_bath_melts_chocolate_thats_good_for_y/

Those will be wrapped in gold foil, and large bath bombs (purple that are peppermint-lavender and yellowy-orange ones that will be vanilla orange!)

Disco Queen Highness - SO many quilts!  I can't wait to see them all!

I finished another one of my smaller projects, the tampon case...or rather, a rough first run of what I want the finished ones to be like.  I'll use it for myself as is, but the ones I make my sisters and mom will be a bit fancier.  So, pics coming soon, now of two projects...lol
