So, those of you who sell on Etsy or other sites...

Do you include your shop crafts in your 50 projects count? I'm starting an Etsy shop and just cranked out around 15 projects and it totally throws off my count, since the projects I did for my shop aren't on my 50 projects list. And I still want to do the projects on my list... but those 15 items I cranked out for my shop put me at like, 40/50. And it feels wrong, since they're not on my list.

Silly question  Wink

I count things that aren't on my origional list. For me it's not about doing what I have on my list (which is really more of a "I want to make this" list), but just seeing how many projects I can make in 1 year.

Oh my gosh. I am taking a summer course online, working part/full time, raising two boys while my husband works on the road and am working on building a business so he will be able to work from home.

I have considered posting painting my toenails as one of my 5o projects this year!  Cheesy

Excellent. I think it'll be cool to, in December, be all, "Yeah, I've finished 80/50 projects this year Grin "

That makes me feel better!

Yay! I feel so accomplished. I finally have my quilt pinned! It only took two weeks! Cheesy

Tomorrow my sewing machine comes out of storage and I get to see if it still works.

So many things nearly completed, but not quite there.

And speaking as someone who always gets streaks in her toenail lacquer, it definitely requires crafting skill.

I'm half way through a scarf, and the weather is getting warm here.  I hope to blitz it this weekend and get it done -- knitting wool in an Iowa-85% humidity-summer is Not precisely on my list...

Just finished a poppet for the swap I'm in. As soon as my partner receives, I'll post pictures.

I'm sort of back.  Sorry for having been invisible, I haven't been up to much and my mood hasn't either.  I may be crafting a little more again now.  I guess an update of my list is in order at some point, then I'll be able to show a bit of what I have accomplished during my retirement (mostly knits).

I'm still in slow motion, though, and for quite a while I am going to be.  But who can be far from Craftster for long?
