I'm planning on running a TM patch swap in the new year - all those people (me included) who have been "Oh, I should do those" all year, every time sheepBlue posts, should join in. I reckon it'll be a great way to take the leap into the TM addiction, because you are just focused on a few squares, instead of a whole project - and then we'll have projects made from international squares!

I've decided to sneak in two more projects this year, trying out interlocking crochet in a hotpad/sampler square/something, and a pokemon for my 9yo nephew who was less than enthused about the cape and mask set he received for Xmas with his younger brother and sisters.

Oh, and Happy Birthday sheepBlue (because it's already Thursday here!  Kiss)

Pics of my last two quilts for the year.

There are some more pics and the story of the quilt that did not want to be made on my blog.

sheepBlue - I always covet your TM things!

A2JC4life - thanks for the link to the hummingbird feeder! I will definitely be making some of these for the spring!

waggonswest - both of your quilts are great! I love the fabric on both of them, but that bug fabric is fantastic!

I have a few more things I can post since I found the correct SD card...

Snowman necklace - I made 2 necklaces and 3 sets of earrings with these guys - the hats are polymer clay. I didn't get a good picture, but on a couple of them I tied little scarves on them as well.

Gnomes - I made 13 little gnomes. Each one got a name and a little biography.

This one is my older daughter's favorite: Fern. She is going to wear Fern as a necklace.

My younger daughter has a few favorites, but Mimsy is high up on her list. She may be the lucky one to end up hanging from her car's rear-view mirror!

These were a lot of fun to make - I know that I will be making more soon!

The snowmen are cute.  BUT I LOVE LOVE LOVE the gnomes!  They are so stinking cute!

Not sure what got into me but I decided to actually craft for myself.  Woah. 

Anyhow, I made myself a wrap shirt and a jersey knit dress/skirt. 

I'm not sure how I feel about the wrap shirt just yet.  Sometimes I like it; other times I don't.  It was inspired by this wrap shirt http://pinterest.com/pin/68468856804542129/ but I moved the ties so they would knot under my bust.  I do not have the willowy figure of the original creator and figured this would be more flattering on me.  Its a little too high maintenance for me.  If I move too much, stuff shifts and I have to shift it all back.  Maybe I will fiddle with the design more later.

I like the jersey dress/skirt more so...of course, I think I made it a wee too big.  I may have to take it in when I want to wear it as a dress.  Wink

Anyhow...I need to finish my last two Christmas gifts before school starts and I find myself overwhelmed with school and work again...

LOVE that second to the last dyed fabric with blue, red, and pinks, sB.  TOTALLY my fave!!

And the TM pillows ROCK OUT.  I'm going to do some more TM stuff soon, I LOVED the stocking I made in that style for oneredboot in the stocking swap SOO very much.

rlynn, I think the dress looks perfect, not too big.  Unless you may be referring to the bust or something else, doesn't look too big in the hips or anything.  I like a blousy dress though, so I could be bias Wink

Can't wait to post my 50 list for 2012!!

In need of rainbow fabrics for a Teesha Moore tote, PM me to swap!

Silvermoon - thanks!  Smiley

rlynn - You are so awesome with all your clothes recons. If I'm not able to get to it before the end of this year *read Saturday* lol, the top of my list for next year is to attempt some shirt recons. I got a bunch of links saved for things to try.

TSM - Thanks! I love how that one came out - has so much depth and color.

Well, instead of trying to cram a ton of projects into a few days I'm just going to relax and try again next year. I'm going to start working on a new list!  Wink

good idea, QNM!  I think we all need a mini break to just chill out...I will probably not finish my Dr. Who scarf so it will move to 2012...

I also love the clothing recons...I need to add a few to my list...

Love the map quilt!

The gnomes are just the cutest things...they could be used in a lot of ways!  I have not even opened my package of polymer clay, but I am going to give it a try next year(wow--next week!)...

good to see some new people wanting to join in the craziness next year!!

I purchased tons of fabrics and yarns, paper, beads, tools, books and other little things for prizes...I am also going to snag some Craftster t-shirts...I will be super busy for tax season so I need to plan ahead!

This craftalong is almost a second job... Cheesy
