I made 3 more pieces of clothing for my little one plus I finished one of the two Christmas gifts.  Tonight I will finish the last and that will probably be my last crafty item of 2011.  I think for next year my goal will be to make at least one thing for Aria and as least one thing for me in addition to all the birthday and holiday gifts I need to make throughout the year.  Its been a lot of fun making clothing for us this week.  In less than a week I made Aria 2 shirts and 3 pair of pants and myself 2 skirts and 1 shirt.   

Anyhow, here are some pics...if you'd like to see more, I've posted them here. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=401055.0

Oh and Aria got her hair cut!  She requested it short like Daddy's.  Actually she has been asking for short hair for a while now...she was so excited to finally get it. Cheesy  She has a sweet little pixie cut.  She loves it and I think she looks adorable.  Cheesy

I made her top and the pants...

I also made these jeans for her...stretchy denim; not too tight for maximum comfort.  She loves them.  Cheesy

These clothes take me to 79; I think I'll end the year at 80. 

Happy New Year's Eve!  Everyone stay safe while you are welcoming the new year in.  Cheesy

80 projects huh? You make me feel like a slacker.  Wink

I have finished a couple of more projects today. May as well have, the husband has torn apart the plumbing to repipe our badly, sadly plumbed kitchen. Love that man. Smiley

The sixth pair of socks in 2011.

A fish hat.

One of the welder's type hats my dad asked for.

And a small blanket for the local animal shelter.

I really think I hit 50 this year as I know I did not post everything here. I have just lost count is all.

Happy New Year all! Smiley

There are folks on here who have hit 100 and beyond.  Now that is some massive crafting. 

Those socks look cozy and I LOVE that fish hat.  So cute.

The socks look so comfy and colorful...and I love the fish hat...exactly what is a welder hat?  It looks fun, whatever it is!

rlynn--good goals for 2012...nice clothes for both you and your daughter...I love her new haircut..she looks like a little pixie...and did you use elastic on the jeans?  They do look comfy and stylish...also, they must go with everything!

Here's my last project for 2011!!!  Cheesy  I'm posting it at the last minute but I figure the majority of it was done in 2011 so it should be posted here.

Here are three of my favorites....  I had to stop myself at 3 because there are a grand total of 256 hexagons here!  Cheesy

Just some random information for ya....  each hexagon took me about 20 minutes. 

20min x 256hex = 5120 minutes 
5120min / 60min = 85.3 hours
85.3hours + 10% sewing hexagons together = 98.83 hours

And I'm still going to put a border on it!!  That's on the 2012 list!  Cheesy  So you'll be seeing this afghan again!

Beautiful afghan!

I did start but I didn't finish that one last holiday gift so it'll be the first project of 2012.  However, I miscounted and I did manage to get 80 projects completed in 2011.  Whoot!

Here are a few items that I haven't posted yet.  There are 3 more items I cannot post because they are intended for someone who might see them if I did post them....however, I am adding small thumbnails to my 50s list so ahem...DawnsTrees...no snooping. 

I think its safe to post this...since the person in question doesn't visit craftster that I know of...
Pacman stencil art for friend

Maybe next year...he'll get Pacman.  Wink

Bendy Fairies for a friend's daughter - super simple...a kid's craft but still fun.  Cheesy
