I feel so far behind. I did finish my amish quilt last night so that takes me to two out of 50. I work 12 hours a day 4 days a week and I have therapy on mondays, so I only have 2 days to craft my ass off.
My scarf is going horribly. I already frogged it once and I'm about to frog it again. Maybe  I will do a different pattern

Everyones projects are looking great, keep up the good work.

Those notebooks are awesome. The narwhal is my favorite.

As for my projects. Still working on crocheting my baby blanket. I've already used 5 skeins, and I'm going to use 2 more, plus then more for the border. I'm kind of surprised I'm still doing it, as I usually give up on something that takes this long.

Other little projects that I'm not counting...
1/ Mouse/toy for Chubbs Start/fin 11-Feb

I'm going to *try* to force myself to stick to this list and get some things done though - a LOT of these things have been on the to-do list for far too long.  No new projects for me!!   Smiley

Update 24-Jan:  I haaaad to condense the jams & canning   Grin  It opened up space for 3 more projects!
Update 25-Jan: And now I've combined the two blanket repair projects and the 2 quilting projects...  Must do 'Pay it forward' crafts & must make a superman costume - Thanks Mama24boyz for the idea!
Update 06-Feb: So I've joined 2 more swaps...  this is going to bump a few projects off of the list and onto the 2013 list...  I'm OK with that  Wink
Update 07-Feb: (yes, I seem to be obsessed with this list Smiley) - I've decided to start tracking the other projects I'm doing, too.  I completely suck at following the limit that I set for myself!
Update 06-Mar: Ok. So. Sticking to the list is absolutely impossible, SO, what I'm going to do is bump things that were originally on the list that are sacrifice-able to a To-do in 2013 list and update my 2012 list as I go.  It's the only fair thing to do  Wink
Update 19-Sept: I'm baaack  Grin  I went swap-crazy this spring & summer and so my original list is pretty much out the window if I'm going to count projects.  I have probably already finished 50!  I've decided to update this list in order to have an online record of what I've created though, so I hope that's OK Smiley
Update 21-Nov: I stink at keeping up with this list.  When we started I kind of laughed when I read "for people who are still actively posting" and thought that I would never let it slip.  It slipped!!
Update 11-Dec: More than 50 this year for sure~!  Thanks for this board for record keeping Wink

Love the books nooo! The color makes me smile every time.

Rlynn - I can sympathize with you on needing a break from school! My bf's parent's dog is being put down tonight and we're going over for moral support, but it's more emotionally stressful than anything. I wish I could afford to skip classes for this, but yeah...just got to keep on trucking.

Thanks for posting your light box, nooo.  Koreena, your canning projects made me smile.  I just opened a jar of my own canned tomatoes for chili.
