52.   Fix polymer clay Faeries
54.   Make dress form so I can start making clothes that fit!
57.   Mini robot pieced section (1" squares because it wanted to be made and i had a tiny piece of grey fabric but now it needs the rest of the quilt so I am searching for the right fabric to make it work.)
60.  Make martini quilt for DH.  



*I'm going to try the category system this year.  I intend to date them upon completion.
*Right now I think I will number them as I finish them.  
*I'm definitely going to give myself some easy projects so I can feel like I'm making progress.

I pinned my list to my wall to see if I can get focused...it is right next to the medication that is suppose to help me with this affliction, so maybe with the two things, I can get my list done with some random projects thrown in! Cheesy

omg--your afghan is GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!  Do you recommend the edging book?  I love how your did yours...it is an extra touch...

I have adult attention deficit disorder--yeah--it means I am scatterbrained and it is hard for me to focus...yeah--the drugs basically calm me down but I kinda like not taking them because I seem to get more done without them Cheesy  I was diagnosed late in life and I made it this far, so I think drugs are overrated Cheesy

I've heard about that and wondered if it would help me, esp. when I was working full-time.  ??  Now that I just stay home and craft, I haven't worried about it too much.   Cheesy

I would totally recommend the book!  Nfirehazzard shared it w/me as she finished up one of her latest afghans and I've used it for two different borders.  I find it hard to pick which ones-cause they are all very nice and TeMpTinG!!
Once I did decide...been very satisfied w/the results.   Grin

heh, love craftstraction which goes along perfectly with my personal nemesis procraftstination Cheesy

I can hardly keep up with all the fabulousness being posted on this thread!



so is procraftstination procrastinating on doing your crafts or using crafts to delay doing other things?  I think I have the issue both ways!

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.

Ooh, that is beautiful!  I love the border!  The pink and the sparkly black really look fantastic together, too.

The afghan is gorgeous!  I admire the skill and patience it took to make.

Always,  we find time to do the things we enjoy.  Last year's craftalong gave me the push I needed to get back into something I really love doing.

Thanks for the encouragement for the afghan...it was inspired by my granddaughter's outfit--pink/black polkadots!!
I'd been waiting and waiting to make it while finishing up November's project.  For December I wanted to do nothing Christmas-sy...so I did that one.  =]

I'm sooo very glad to be on Craftster...I'd been thinking about making quilts and now I'm slowing wading into that area and making simple ones that I've found thanks to the craftstraction here!  I'd been a part of a quilt guild in the area and plodded my way through a couple of (UFO) projects...I may be able to pick them back up in the near future and finish them...destash-style!! Cheesy
