When counting projects, I've started thinking about what the spirit of this craft-along is.  I interpret it as a way to motivate ourselves to get projects finished, so I figure, whatever way of counting motivates you the most is probably how you should count.

Thanks alwaysinmyroom & fantasticmio. That's what I was thinking. I made 16 Giving Bunnies, but counted them as one project. I counted the separate, different items from my other swaps individually. Like I said, I know it doesn't really matter how we decide to count projects, but I was wondering how others are doing it.

I have never counted all of my completes projects over a year, so this is going to be interesting. I've been crafting a lot more in the last few years than I did before, and this year will probably be record-breaking (even though I have no idea what my record is! Tongue). Now, I just need my swap projects to be received so I can post pictures of my last 6 projects!

The tiny dragons are very cute. I can think of many ways to play with them.

The barbecue sauce looks very yummy. It's a great idea to make your own.

I've been making up new recipes lately. As I had stopped at the farm to get fresh eggs, I had to use them. It turned out that they disappeared very fast in fact. i tried to make low calories lunches.

Diced carrots, zucchini, tomatoes and onions cooked in the pan.

Pan cooked spinach, mushrooms and bacon.

I have also tried making pasta again. I made a dryer dough and added more flour on the table. I also dried the spaghetti on an improvised rack. It was a success.

With the same dough I also made ravioli.

They didn't last long!

Your drying rack is genius!  mmm ravioli...I make pumpkin ravioli and spinach/feta cheese ravioli...it is a lot of work, but worth it...I bet your family is enjoying your new pasta making projects!!

Please post your rack in Cooking, also..it is very useful and clever and sure beats those small ready made racks!

Love those miniature yarn balls and dominoes.  I pinned the pocket dragons cause I think my son would love them.  Well my daughter probably would too if they were purple! 

I made homemade ravioli once because all the store bought kind has ricotta which I don't like.  It was a lot of work though so I haven't done it since!
