I've had the bulk of this done for awhile, but wanted to do more. I got a few more things done on it, but thought I would post it anyway.  I made a play kitchen for Maddy out of an old entertainment center.


Here's a close up of the "stove" and "sink"


I still need to put a faucet in there and make curtains for the window, but all in all, it turned out really cute I think.

I also made but have no pictures of:
a record bowl for my brother
a casserole cover for my MIL
and a vinyl wall cutout for my niece

That brings my posted total up to 40 posted projects! I have more that I need to post yet, so I'm hoping I can make it to the 50 before the end of the year. Smiley

That's awesome, ehinders! I'm sure Maddy will love it.

I just finished knitting some socks! These are for my cousin, who I picked in my extended family's secret santa gift exchange.

oh smeddley--you are so lovely!  What a lot of beautiful and fun projects!  I love those bracelets...I had to stop making them...aren't they addicting? Cheesy

I would love to see your hip belt--it is the crochet with the tassels?  I want to make one but don't have a pattern... Sad

indigo_roses--your dad is awesome!!!  What a great gift for you!  I expect we will be seeing loads of spun yarn in 2013!

I actually love dpns and I also love circulars...I have the book on knitting two socks at a time...I am sure I will finish the other sock, but it is not my favorite thing to knit...we'll see! Wink

OK--gotta take some pics and get ready for final postings this weekend...

Oh ehinders--I bet your child was thrilled!  I know I would be! Cheesy

You must repost when you get more done...I think it is fine because children have great imagination!

Awe, thanks!  And yes, those bracelets are SO addicting.  I have a few more to make (for people who have requested them) and then I'm telling myself I'm going cold turkey.

The pattern I used is a modification of a pattern I got for free on the internet.  I changed up the rows, and made a two-piece variant, as well.  The weird thing is she charges for the pattern now, so I don't know if I can share my version or not.  It's a weird situation.  But it started as the Josephine Hip Scarf.  It works up fairly quickly, unless you follow the actual directions and end up with something enormous - on the first one, I did it exactly as it said and ended up with a giant scarf (But I use it as a shawl, too, so it works out).

Wow!  I am loving everything!!  pac man blanket, spinning wheel, beautiful cards, socks, crowns....just WOW!!

I wanted to share a pic of Lana decorating her sugar cookies this year (I helped make the cookies and if I count each one I'll have made it to 5o!!  LOL!).  The set of piping tools really made it fun and easy!  This time we only made enough to share with Santa and my brother, but next year we'll make a really huge batch and invite her friends to come to decorate them!

I'm loving the play kitchen!  Too cute!

And beautiful socks, indigo!

Yay for cookies!

Alright, here's the last of the stuff I finished up before christmas, though now that I think about it, I didn't take pictures of it all.  Oh well!


Captain America shirt for my dad.  There were so many little pieces that I had to iron in, but it all worked out despite that.  I also applied the paint with a sea sponge this time, not worrying about getting it completely filled in, so that it would like vintagy.


A batman shirt for my dad.  Same dealo with this one, making it vintagy.


And I made 4 sets of these chalkboard wine glasses.  They were super easy and fun to make.  You take blue painters tape and tape up the stem, leaving the base uncovered and then give it three coats of chalkboard spray paint.  I get a set of chalk for each set as well.


Some chocolate, peanut butter, and oreo bark.  I found the recipe for it here on craftster.  Its really really good!


My preggo SIL requested these cookies this year.  I've made them once before, but its been a couple years.  They are vanilla bean pillows.  I don't think I tried them when I made them the first time, but I did this year and oh man are they good!  They have vanilla sugar on the outside.  You cut up a vanilla bean with a couple cups of sugar and let it sit for at least a week.  You can use the sugar of a bunch of different things.  And the vanilla sugar doesn't go bad, either! 

I also made like 10 bottles of vanilla extract, as well.  And jerky, too!  Though I failed to take pictures of those.
