Bookstore, what a great use for old keyboard keys! I especially like the first coffee break piece. And congrats on hitting 62 projects.

Kookaloo, my dd#2 would love that Slytherin scarf! You do such great work. My dd#1 wants some handmade socks but since I don't knit they'll have to be crocheted. I really admire those of you who do knit.

CHALLENGE ENTRY - Xmas decorations Smiley

I seemed to have got hooked on knitting these little stars (I have a 3rd little one on the needles right now too!). They are a great way of using up those freebie giveaway balls of Xmas yarns from the knitting magazines.  Smiley

This time I have made one in a red/gold acrylic (pictured next to the 1st sparkly white one I made)


Also here is the Wedding annivarsary Xmas Ornament I made for my DH this year. It is made from the left over satin & velvet from my wedding drees & cloak. I have put a minituare picture of us in the fob watch case as I gave my DH a silver pocketwatch as a wedding present Smiley


And here are 8 years & 1 wedding worth of ornaments all together. All based on the theme/colours of our wedding plus a few 'in jokes' in our life  Wink


Ands here is where they hang...on my DH's computer desk in our living room! we dont have space for a large tree so we decorate his desk, 2 mini trees and Bob the AT-AT every year instead  Grin

Oh my goodness, more brilliance.  This thread is so inspiring and I love the fact that I have kept track of what I have done this year (good & bad).

I have just been having a review of my original list, I have 14 to hit the 50.  Several projects are now virtually impossible due to our imminent move and the need to have packed many supplies away.

I have 3 WIPs, 2 of which are active, (coat and fingerless mitts), 1 which requires significant input (quilt).

The first 2 I am confident of completing. That will leave me with 12 projects................

I need to think smart and do some quick, stash busting projects. Probably sewn - wool is pretty much all packed.
Any ideas gratefully received.

I have already started my 2014 starter list, this has culled most of the things that have not been done from previous years and started again.  Ambitious!!

Trinalo, what a huge donation!

Sheepblue, I love the colors of the sequin hoopla.

Silvermoon, that's a bunch of cute adiposes.

Smedley, fun gag TP.

Bushbaby, I like your knitted stars.

Carolmb, the fabric folded ball is quite stunning. Is it a hard work to make?

Kbrison, lovely fabric basket. I like the choice of fabrics you used.

Kookaloo-star, that's a cute angel costume, and done in a jiffy.

Bookstorebabe, your pause/break frames are quite fun.

Although, what is a bog coat?

Challenge accepted!!!

Also aprons, bookmarks, laundry bags, e-reader covers, some purses, fabric-covered picture frames, gift tags, luggage tags, hair bows, curtain draw backs, fabric wrapped wreaths. Think you've created a monster by asking for ideas. Now I can't seem to stop! Grin

A bog coat is made from a single rectangle of fabric, may be lined or unlined, may be any length, will fit any age, can be decorated or left unadorned, and has only two seams. One seam creates the left sleeve and left coat front; the other seam creates the right sleeve and right coat front. Here's the url to Cheryl Moncrief's pattern:  http://www.thequiltercommunity.com/Wcc5e41c2233f3.htm
