Smeddley, I love you bd costumes and your bracelets  Grin I have supplies for those but haven't got around to making any yet.

Thank you!  The costumes are the reason I do it, to be honest.  I love making them.

Just realize that once you start, it's really hard to quit...  Cheesy  It's such an easy, relaxing, addictive craft!

I have totally lost track of my list the last half of this year, I got to about 65 things and a combination of burn out, moving and lazy posting habits took over and I probably missed posting a few dozen things.  I am really looking forward to the new list to help motivate me again.

I have been completing some more projects, Christmas presents for family especially. 

Like this for my nephew:

Here is the Car storage and road mat roll I made for my nephew for Christmas. I used sewing, applique and fabric paint as well as store bought cars to complete the project...oh and the plug in end cut off some ear phones for the fuel pump which he seems to love most!
(more photos on the toys board)

And for a friend's new little baby:

And for my neice a donkey and giraffe:

And a Scottish Viking for my friend who ordered one:

(more photos on the amigurumi board)

Love the look of all the yummy looking cookies by the way!

I've also managed to get a few things done.

I made 2 simple tops:

This one I wore to Xmas Lunch  Smiley

I made a brooch

I also did some crocheting

And I finally finished my wee house!

That brings me up to 50 finished projects!  Cheesy

Here are my last projects for the year, bringing me up to exactly 50! Whew made it.

My husband and I found an old blue doll house at a garage sale (I should have gotten some before pictures.) So we sanded it down and removed two layers of wall paper (such a pain) and repainted it for our 6 year old's Christmas present.

For my 2 year old's Christmas present we made a massive felt house. It's 6 ft high and the peak and 6 ft by 4 ft. We were going for a simple cottage style look. My husband made the PVC Pipe frame and I made the felt covering. The back is super simple with just a little door for them to crawl through, and the sides mirror each other.

And last, some dishcloths that I crocheted during the summer, but just barely got around to weaving in the ends.

Well, I just did a rough count and got up to 109!!!  Theres probably more that I'm forgetting, but still, thats a crazy number!!!  Cheesy  Now I just gotta upload some pics and I promise it won't be all of the ones I missed  Roll Eyes

I absolutely love love quilts, do you think an afghan is a fair trade for a quilt? I'd love to swap!

I see that there are a lot of us who attempted socks this year! I have done a pair in worsted weight and I'll be doing some in actual sock yarn next. Not sure when I'll be getting to that though because...

Next weekend I am going to be picking up my first spinning wheel! It will be a Merlin Tree Road Bug. Can't wait!

Foxy Sam - Viking doll so cute!  Must... resist... urge... to put on list... to do... Wink

meleriffic - I've always wanted to do some sort of dollhouse, but I don't have the patience for that.  Weird, I can spend hours drawing or sewing, but ask me to sand or paint?  It never happens.  That one looks good!

alwaysinmyroom - You can do it!  The other foot is cooooold, it needs a sock!  I admit, one of the reasons I've not attempted socks yet is that I know I'll fall victim to the dreaded Second Sock Syndrome.  :/
