Title: CLOSED-50 Projects 2013--You Know You Can Do It!
Post by: alwaysinmyroom on December 26, 2012 09:00:26 AM
WELCOME TO THE 2013 50 PROJECTS CRAFTALONG!




Do you have a lot of unfinished projects laying around?

How about a long list of gifts for family and friends?

Do you want to try a new craft or learn a new technique?

Well, get that list going and post it here!  You will be surprised at how many things you will get done at the end of the year...and have a record of it!  I post thumbnails on my list and print it out each year...:D

Plus, I will once again do prizes and challenges as time and money permits!

To make things as simple as possible, I will post news and notes and a link to your list on page 1.  You guys can post a main list, no list, or a mini list every month...whatever works for you!

The goal is to stay motivated, inspired and get things done!

I'm in

1. Treasure boxes. I received a  bunch of cutsie photo boxes...too cute. I want to remake for gifts.
2. Aprons and more aprons
3. Lots of fingerless mittens. I can't keep them! Everyone wants a pair. I'm wearing mine right now.
4. Mini top hats.
5. Build out library to a craft room. Room for sewing and cutting, painting, stashes of yarn, fabric, ephemera, paint (well...it was suppose to be a computer room, then came laptops and wifi. Then a library, but along came book readers. Right now it is a junk/box/very dusty room.)
6. Return guest room to guest room status (currently chaotic craft room).
7. Creative and artistic quilt squares for a group quilt for Michfest 2013
8. Head bands/scarves. Again, everyone wants one!
9. Soft frisbees, and more frisbees. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=412132.0 . Fling them everywhere.
10. Build fireplace mantle and surround. We love our new wood stove insert, but it is looking a bit naked.
11. Learn to crochet more than a sc or dc.
12. Make a t-shirt wrap skirt
13. Make a patchwork wrap skirt
14. Lengthen my favorite wrap skirt...have to figure this out. I purchased this one and it is a bit short.
15. Make tank tops from tshirts for summer.
16. Crochet a tshirt rug
17. Make several more tshirts with layers and slashes. I don't think there is a name for this...will post a pic when done. Much different than slashed tshirt remakes.
More to come

MIO!!!!!

Did you see I finished my Dr. Who scarf?  I posted it in 2012 50 projects...and I am now working on the hat and mittens to match! ;D

Glad you are going to be here!!

I hadn't seen the scarf!  Not sure how that happened... it looks fantastic!

Do you have a hat pattern in mind to match?  I'm thinking "mio hat" with the left over yarn... half the colours on one side, the other half on the other side, changing colours randomly... or something.

I am just doing stripes in a beanie style--picking random colors but making sure that they are all represented in each hat...I want to use up all of the colors as I am sick of them... :D

Always - I know some of the  steampunk costume pieces are going to be leather, but it's all still quite hazy at the moment.  I keep putting those costumes off because the dress I'd like to make takes 18 yards of fabric!   :o  I'm just working with some leather samples from an upholstery shop that I got for free, and I've got a couple little purses pinned that I thought would be good practice, since I've never really worked with it before.

fishstix--I am going to go look for some cute leather pouches...maybe with some beading and jewelry...

I applaud you for making costumes--they do require a lot of fabric!  We have an outlet store here where a lot of renfaire seamstresses go to buy velvets and wools for super cheap...I see them walking out with their carts filled just to make one or two dresses or capes!

Christmas t-shirts for girls and our brand new SURPRISE niece! She showed up unexpectedly on 12/29/12.  http://www.polkadotchair.com/2009/10/be-ribboned-skirt-t-shirt-tutorial.html/

Set back until next year, 2014. But I have plenty of time to work out all of the math this way. A St. Patrick’s Day skirt for me. I have a note to myself to begin working o this in February. I have part of the material, looking forward to buying the two or three more colors to finish it out. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=234388.0

I want to make buntings to hang in my dining room this year. Do I do one for each month? Unlikely, at best. Or one for each major change in season? Might be doable.

One goal I have is to do more stitching by hand this year. http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2012/12/introducing-free-stitchables-on-ucreate.html

Fabric covered composition books with a loop to hold a pen. Would love to use the glue/writing combo pen from Smash books and maybe a closable envelope to hold precious things in the back?

Thank you so very much, I figured it had to be something a long those lines, but well I did not wish to guess and have to mean something else.

Hah! Now I'm tempted to start crafting something right after midnight to see if I can get the first item done. Though people on the East Coast would have 3 hours on me, so I probably wouldn't get it. I hope to start and finish some items tomorrow though.

Well not sure if this counts but I made two amazing baked dips for tonight I thought I would share

Baked crab and cheese dip
6 oz of cream cheese (warmed in microwave or oven)
4 oz of sour cream
3 oz of mayonnaise (salad dressing works but makes it sweeter)
8 oz of imitation crab meat
4 oz of Colby jack cheese shredded

Directions:
Using the food processor chop the crab up finely and then add sour cream and mayo, after blending that add the softened cream cheese and slowly add the shredded cheese.  Place in a lightly oiled Pyrex bowl or pie pan and season to taste (I use Lawry brand seasoning salt)
Bake at 300* for 15 to 20 mins and spoon into an emptied out bread bowl or serve with vegetables or chips

Spinach dip

1 package chopped, frozen spinach thawed with the moisture wrung out
1 Med onion finely grated
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 oz water
Pinch of sugar
6 oz of cream cheese (warmed in microwave or oven)
4 oz of sour cream
3 oz of mayonnaise (salad dressing works but makes it sweeter)
4 oz of Colby jack cheese shredded

Using the processor finely mince an onion
In a small sauce pan melt the butter and saute the onion and garlic for a few minutes then add the oz of water and the finely chopped spinach  with the pinch of sugar.  Cook the vegetables until soft and the water cooks out.
Mix the mayo, sour cream and cream cheese along with the cheese in the food processor and then slowly spoon in the hot vegetables while processing.
Pour the mixture into a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at 300*
Spoon into hollowed out bread loaf or serve in a dish


I heated these up and served them together in one thick loaf of Italian bread (I hollowed out two "bowls") and every 30 mins or so I put the entire thing back in the microwave for 45 seconds or so and put it back out.  Not all of the dip fit in each bowl so I refrigerated half and kept stirring it in as the levels went down.
These dips were a huge hit and the little bit that was left in the fridge I am using to make quiche

This is how I used the left overs

Baked Dip and sourdough Strata

I had about a 1/3 of a loaf of bread left in the form of crusts left over from making sourdough party toasts (I used a large loaf of sliced sourdough, and using a spaghetti sauce can I cut out circles then cut them in to half moon shapes, sprizted them with olive oil and a little seasoning and toasted them in the oven for the dips)

I soaked the dry crusts in a cup of milk then broke them up in an oiled pan and let them soak for a bit while I mixed up the eggs (half an hour in the fridge is best)
in the blender I put:
1 cup of milk
a BIG scoop of each dip (about 1/3 of a cup each)
and 8 eggs
then I blended it and poured it over the crusts and put it in a 350* oven and after 10 mins I stirred it up to make sure the crusts were coated and it then cooks for 30 more mins.




BTW this dip freezes well

MY LIST
 
As of 1/1/13     0/50

PLANNED LIST:

3. refinish 3 drawer doll's chest
4. refinish wood and metal ice cream parlor chair
5. vintage and antique lace belts (5 or more)

10. sock monsters (2 or more)
11. decorated jars for storage
12. bead necklaces
13. quilt made from old damask tablecloths
14. picnic blanket from fleece and nylon
more to come.
(By the way, thanks for all the ideas provided on this list. I definitely plan to "borrow" some.)

I made these today:

I was completely taken by these two colours in the balls, but I intensely dislike the end result... according to my fiance, that's nuts. :P


I like this one much better!



I'm switching over to a more long term project (or two!) now, so this might be it for today. ^_^

It's Lion Brand Homespun.

The first blanket was Seafoam and Parfait colours and the second one was Tumbleweed and an unlabeled ball I had kicking around (definitely Homespun, just not sure on the colourway)

Well.  50 projects in a year is almost one a week.  I probably can't make one thing a week, I have school and recitals and such.  But I shall do my best. :D

So anyways.  Just so you-all know, some are going to be mimics of what I've seen elsewhere, but simply must have for myself.  And so I shall make them.  Also, I like plastering my walls with movie and book stuffs, thus the contents of half my list.  It's not because I lack inspiration, or anything.  

50 Projects:
(In no particular order, of course)

1.     Stuffed Toothless <3 (wip)
2.     Embroidered LOTR map
3.     Knitted Piano (Pattern is crocheted, so we shall see....)
4.     Thorin's Poem wall hanging -starts singing- "far overrr the Misty Mountains coldddd..." ;)
5.     A real actual sweater for people, knitted.
6.     A real actual blanket.
7.     Art Of Music Wall Hanging (Google "Art Of Music." It's lovely)
8.     Illusion Baby Blanket (design TBA)
9.     Knitted Gloves (wip)
10.   Finish Knitted Duvemala farm (bonus points if you know this place) (wip)

Forteisbest - there are two good ways to keep track of your list - one is to go to the first page of this craft-along (Alwaysinmyroom puts a link to each of our lists there). The other is to put a link to it in your signature line. There may be a better way to do this but this is how I did it: click on the "Re: 50 Projects 2013--You Know You Can Do It! Join here and post your lists !" above your list then copy the url in the address bar - that links directly to your list. Add it to your signature (by going to the "my craftster"  in the yellow bar then the "my profile" in the blue pop-up bar then click on the "forum profile information" under "Modify Profile" on the left of the page).

Any of the three--I like to give people a few choices since we all have different circumstances.  You can do any of them or all three, but you will only get to enter once.

I just want everyone to make something in January! :D

AND--keep posting...I like doing random surprises! :D

JANUARY CHALLENGE

1. something to help you get to stay organized
3. something for yourself or your own home
3. finish a WIP from 2012

The prize will be a gift card worth $25, via Amazon or any other site of your choice!

Get crafting...well, maybe tomorrow! :D

I don't suppose we count software programming as crafting do we?  :P Because I am writing an android app to help me keep track of my rows and colour changes when I make my Doctor Who scarf, and that would keep me organised!  ;D (As a side note, I noticed a few others making THE scarf this year. When I'm finished writing my app, I'd be happy to share a link for anyone running android who'd like a copy)

I love reading everyone's lists!

I have been happily crafting away today making painted papers that I wanted to use in a multimedia piece but just found out that one of the pens that I was used bleeds when I put modge podge on it. :(. I am going to try to spray them with a sealer but the spray says that I need to wait until it is above freezing to use it. I wonder what happens if I use it when it is this cold?

Question for all of you - I am thinking of having a craft party. I have been to some that were really fun, but they had people who were all fairly experienced crafters and they brought their own WIPS. Have any of you hosted a craft party for a wide variety of skills and experience and had it been successful?

So I made one of these lists a few years ago that had all kinds of wonderful projects on it that I totally abandoned, so this year I want to focus really hard on getting these projects done.

42. Have produced three finished pieces of fine art to enter into an annual exhibition here in my town called the Delta Exhibition which shows current works by artists living or born in the states surrounding the Mississippi River Delta region. (usually due late in the year)
43. A series of hand stamped ceramic plaques celebrating love and life for the Valentine's/Spring season.
44. A piece of fine art or a wearable item using a large embroidered dragon that until now was on one of my favorite pairs of pants, which is now totally worn out.   :'(

47. A vertical salad garden using an old door and recycled two liter bottles.
48. A birthday present for my girlfriend which again I can't reveal because she is on this board.

Well a long with getting holiday decor put away. Taking a look around the craftroom. That was a little bit scary.

I have been working on the star throw, since it's made up of small squares I can pretty much make them anywhere. and then work on joining them at home. So is what I have been doing. It started as my take a long project. Something I could do to pass time when I had to wait on things.

welll and wonderment

So one of the first big steps to fixing my art room up have been boxing everything that was in there up and putting everything except the paint, pens, markers and glue containers in the garage.
We have a birthday party we are hosting here for a friend on Saturday so we will be sweeping and vacuuming in there then putting down a lot of floor pillows and putting our spare blankets in pillowcases so that people can lounge around and sleep in there if need be.
Then Sunday we will bring in the rolling drawer units and clean them out and organize them how we want and hang up the plastic shoe bags I store small things in.
We will mark everything with what goes where and I will bring in one box of things at a time then sort and inventory everything and put it away.
This is my goal over the next 6 weeks.  I wish I could go faster but between dealing with hundreds upon hundreds of different bits and pieces of art supplies that are in total disarray  (literally hundreds of pounds of stuff, yes I am a hoarder) and my physical limitations and other commitments I will be lucky to be done that fast.

Right now the hard part is as I packed stuff up I want to use it, I left some supplies in my backpack to use when we go to coffee but I can't let myself start crafting out of the stuff in the garage or nothing will ever be put back the right way.
Right now I am only giving myself a few hours a week to craft or art journal until it is all done.

So many good lists! But I'm not going to add things from them to my list... yet...

I have a finished WIP! I had four pieces done last year (oh, so long ago!) and crocheted the other six pieces last night and assembled them. I'm going to try posting a picture from my phone... Nope, won't work. That's so frustrating!  Ah, well, not much I can do about it.  Hopefully I'll remember to update from my computer more often... that was the problem last year, just finding the time to sit down!

SilverMoon--I am so glad to be done with my Dr. Who Scarf!! I printed the pattern and just checked off the colors as I went...with garter stitch, it was easy to count the rows but I did use a row counter...this weekend I used up most of the leftover bits of yarn and made 4 hats...I hope not to see those colors again for a very long time! :D

DawnsTrees--I have hosted parties and have gone to parties where one person brings most of the supplies for a craft.  Each time it was something different but doable by all!  You can find out if you are really interested in the craft, get tips and pointers, and also, at the end, have something to take home!

Prayer flags, notecards, etc. can be made by all...at our last mod meetup we made fabric bowls, resin pendants, cheese, rubber stamps, clay stamps, and a few other things...it was a blast!  And, if you can imagine crafting with all experienced and talented moderators...we learned a few great things!

I am so glad to see a lot of old participants and also a lot of new participants!  The projects are going to be so inspiring...

that1girl and AlishaMisha...I am counting on you for new yarn patterns!  You guys find the best! :D

My first year too and what a great motivator.  I started redoing my den and have made great progress.  Walls painted, old floor pulled up and new floor is down.  Base board is back in place switch plates painted and replaced.  Moving right along.  Last night I was up until 2 am shredding old papers in my lateral file cabnet.  I narrowed it down from totally full to just 1/2 full now.  I had tax returns from 2004 up thru present those old ones are gone.  Lots of other ancient paper too.  Need to add making nice labels for my files to my to do list.  Now deciding what to keep and what to place in a box for a garage sale this spring.  Theme was jungle, zebras, giraffes, tigers, elephants etc.  Not sure what I am gonna do it in now.  I collect vintage board games and those have taken over this room which is never used.  My desk computer is in there too, but I am always on my laptop in the living room.  Taking a break from it today and headed to Louisana to play some slots.

I finished a project! Well, ok, it was more of a party and I wasn't the only person involved, but it's on my list :) Y'see in the Solomon Islands New Year's Day is THE BIG HOLIDAY of the year. Our very dear friend Ryan is from the Solomons and his mother is in the USA visiting for a few months. We celebrated New Year's Day last year and had to do it again this year since she's here. The project part of the celebration was learning how to cook Banana Flower. So, so yummy! I posted about it on my blog (new, another project) so you can read the full details there. Or you can read the quick details over on the cooking board (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418574.msg4954015#msg4954015).

We are blessed that our church is very diverse. We have members from over 40 different countries! So we get to try food from other countries/cultures all the time. It is very special when our friends will take the time to show us how to prepare the food the way they do "at home" (or as close to it as possible). I have photos of the cassava being prepared so I'll be doing another post on the blog and here about that dish. Glad you enjoyed :)

skittlebub - love the machine embroidery! I am slightly afraid of my simple sewing machine, can't imagine working with one that does things that are that awesome!

Kookaloo_Starr - what a great way to make a notice board!

fantasticmio - I like the colors in both of the swirls!

Renstar - love the dress!

Prayer flags, notecards, etc. can be made by all...at our last mod meetup we made fabric bowls, resin pendants, cheese, rubber stamps, clay stamps, and a few other things...it was a blast!  And, if you can imagine crafting with all experienced and talented moderators...we learned a few great things!

Cheese?? What a fun meetup that must have been!! I have one person who has very little crafting experience and I don't want her to feel unsuccessful but I want the other people to have fun creating at their own levels. Prayer flags or bunting may be fun for everyone to make - thanks for the suggestions!

Of course I'm joining, just keeping up with the thread last year gave me so much inspiration.
(now, I hope this year the inspiration would turn into actual projects, but only time will tell).
I'm redoing my list, although a lot of the stuff from last year will probably stay on the list, and I'll add it here when I'm done.
I wish us all a great crafty year :)

Here's my list so far, lots of stuff from last year, some shifted around, some new additions:

1.dream catcher for friend
2.charms/pendants for beaded necklaces
I made last year - at least 10, so my nieces
can pick their favorite combinations
3.crochet arm warmers for SIL - WIP
4.Cook more - not sure exactly how to
define this, it would probably be an
ongoing sort of project. there are loads of
recipes I want to try.
5.bead a painted pony necklace or bracelet
6.bead something gaming related for coworker
7.tree of life pendant
8.etch a set of glasses for my guys
9.2 sets of plush dice for friends' babies
10.tentacle pendant, like sheep blue's
11.2 beaded lizards for friends
12.triangle beaded pendant
13.honeycomb beaded bracelet for SIL
14.Redo name bracelet for niece
15-17.Name bracelets for newer nieces
18.Try freezer paper stenciling
19.Beaded star (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=569514)
20.Crochet hat (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=576857)

That is a good project--what is inside?  I think my dog would carry them off, though...he thinks everything is his toy... :D

k-star is on an organization roll!  Nice way to pretty up containers!


 Also, here is an idea:  I bought one of those picnic silverware carriers and put soup cans in them...then I organized my pens, pencils, etc.  It has a handle so you can carry it around from one workspace to another...I love it

I suggest microwaving it every month, especially in the summer...beans and bugs...ick...but, black-eyed peas mean good luck, so that is a plus!!

The organisation is a "needs must" project. I lost my craft room to my son coming home, then he left again and hubby and I moved into the smaller room so I could have a big craft space, now he is coming home again as the house he's been sharing is being foreclosed on. The lads have been paying their rent but the landlord ( a so called friend of theirs) hasn't been paying the mortgage! I told him this time he has to share with my craft stuff, since we moved into the smaller bedroom I don't have room for it in there. Oh for a 3 bed house....

I love reading everyone's lists!

I have been happily crafting away today making painted papers that I wanted to use in a multimedia piece but just found out that one of the pens that I was used bleeds when I put modge podge on it. :(. I am going to try to spray them with a sealer but the spray says that I need to wait until it is above freezing to use it. I wonder what happens if I use it when it is this cold?

Question for all of you - I am thinking of having a craft party. I have been to some that were really fun, but they had people who were all fairly experienced crafters and they brought their own WIPS. Have any of you hosted a craft party for a wide variety of skills and experience and had it been successful?

I use sealer and/or fixative on my stuff all the time when its cold since I can't get away from the -20C for half the year.  All I do is stand on the deck and spray fast then bring it in to dry.  although sometimes I forget to take note of the wind and overspray my parka, the house siding and my poor deck ;;)

I think as long as the stuff doesn't get cold ...I spray and paint all sorts of things in my ice cold garage! :D

k-star--it is good that you set the rules...when kids come back home, they have to live by your rules...including yarn and fabrics hanging around! :D

Kookaloo: my parents did that to me, too!  When I moved out, my mom turned my old bedroom into a craft room.  When I moved back, we crammed my bed in there.  The best part was, I was working at Michaels at the time.  It was all crafts, all the time!  It was fantastic. :D

Ok - so I have 8 ongoing projects that are carrying over from 2012.  And my family is picking on me because I can't seem to pick one and finish it.  They all get worked on bit by bit by bit.  :)  Oh well.  I am almost done with the first scarf of the year for one of my co-workers.  And then I'm hoping to finish the shawl I started sometime last July.  

So here's my question for January's challenge....  if you're finishing an ongoing project from 2012 for yourself....  does it count twice?  ;)  j/k.  I'm being a pain.  :)

You don't have to post anything...only you control your list...it is just a tool for you...some people like to show what they made and of course, we love to see what inspiration and tips we can get...and how others might interpret the same patterns, etc.  But, please, don't feel pressured to have to post anything!

Some people have more time than others...do what you can!

So I was glancing around the terror that is my crafting space. Everything is stuffed in bags and boxes from when I moved out for college 3 yrs. ago, and it is quite the daunting project to get it organized, especially with no budget for shelves or bins. However, I have this pretty large trunk, which is a horrible green color. It has a pressed wood inside, and I used to store my winter items in it. However, it leaves everything smelling musty. I wanted to use it to store my growing fabric stash, but I'm not sure how to solve this problem. I don't want to have nasty smelling fabric. Any advice for this issue?

Try plain charcoal brickets (not Matchlight or ones with lighter fluid). Leave in the closed trunk for about a week. The charcoal should absorb the odors. Then you can still use the charcoal for its original purpose afterwards without harm.

I use sealer and/or fixative on my stuff all the time when its cold since I can't get away from the -20C for half the year.  All I do is stand on the deck and spray fast then bring it in to dry.  although sometimes I forget to take note of the wind and overspray my parka, the house siding and my poor deck ;;)

Yay! Thanks for letting me know that it wouldn't destroy my work. I am going to go spray them tonight!

So I was glancing around the terror that is my crafting space. Everything is stuffed in bags and boxes from when I moved out for college 3 yrs. ago, and it is quite the daunting project to get it organized, especially with no budget for shelves or bins. However, I have this pretty large trunk, which is a horrible green color. It has a pressed wood inside, and I used to store my winter items in it. However, it leaves everything smelling musty. I wanted to use it to store my growing fabric stash, but I'm not sure how to solve this problem. I don't want to have nasty smelling fabric. Any advice for this issue?

Take 3-4 small cups, half fill them with baking soda and a few drops each of an essential oil like mint or lavender and shut them in your trunk for a week or 2 then air it out.  You can take the baking soda mix and pour it in a tightly woven sock and tie it off then leave it in the bottom of the trunk as you use it.

Argh....I'm working on a long overdue WIP for the challenge (pretty sure it was on my 2011 list! :P) but since it's gotten shuffled around so much I spend more time detangling the ball of yarn than I do actually crocheting!  Not to mention that the recipient of the blanket has since moved from Wisconsin to Florida and probably no longer needs a throw blanket, but it's the principle of the thing.  Plus it gets the yarn out of my house.  ;)

I think I am going to try both the charcoal and the baking soda methods to see if I can get some of the mustyness out of our basement closets...:D  We had a flood a few years ago and even though it was cleaned up, I can still smell it!

Oooo yofi I love your Wig Head Display. Makes me want to go find one and get out my modge podge!

I started to paint my bathroom shelf today, it will definitely need a few more coats, but my boyfriend will be glad when that is no longer taking up space.

This thread is definitely making me feel much more driven to craft everyday!

I don't suppose we count software programming as crafting do we?  :P Because I am writing an android app to help me keep track of my rows and colour changes when I make my Doctor Who scarf, and that would keep me organised!  ;D (As a side note, I noticed a few others making THE scarf this year. When I'm finished writing my app, I'd be happy to share a link for anyone running android who'd like a copy)

Would it only work for this pattern or could it be manipulated for others???

I'm hard coding the season 12 pattern into it, but I could change that for another pattern, assuming I had access to the pattern. If you are just after something that keeps track of a set row repeat though, might I suggest County (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bobbinsmag#?t=W251bGwsMSwxLDIxMiwiY29tLmJvYmJpbnNtYWciXQ..) It's what I use as a row counter, and what gave me the idea for the scarf app.

I added my list, it's mostly just last year's list with a couple of new things added in.

I'm really excited about next week. We live in an apartment my parents own. My mom used parts of it as a craft studio in the past, and one room is still stuffed with crafting supplies and other related items. Currently, it's just all piled up in there and is not useful at all. It's also frustrating knowing we have this lovely potential crafting room with loads of awesome supplies and not using it (the cat sometimes goes in there and then can't find his way out again, but he's just a bit silly). So, anyway, next week my mom wants to pull everything out of that room (into a different area of the apartment) and get it organized. I have to take a few days off from work anyway, so I'll join in and help as much as I can. Then I'll get an awesome crafting room as well as an awesome crafting buddy or two (my dad is pretty crafty too).
Hey, that should go on the list too, no?

Ok, I have one project done so far this year, and in the nick of time, too.  I don't have awesome pictures of it yet, since I'm at work and only have my phone.  But it is just too awesome not to share RIGHT THIS SECOND!  I will get better pictures of it posted later, with someone other than me modeling it.

So I decided randomly that I had to make my BIL a dwarf beard for his birthday.  Why?  I have no idea.  But, whatever, I do what I want!  ^_^





This makes me giggle to no end!  Its yarn on a plastic canvas, and despite that, its not uncomfortable and very warm!  My face misses it a little bit.  I kinda want to wear it outside like ALL THE TIME.  I'm defintely making myself one for christmas so I can be a dwarf.  ^_^ 

I used this tutorial:  http://www.instructables.com/id/How-To-Grow-Your-Own-Epic-Dwarf-Beard-In-One-Eveni/

Pretty epic!  Sorry again for the crappy phone pictures!  Better pictures to come!  ^_^

Here it is: http://pamapaloza.blogspot.ca/2010/02/i-hate-changing-colors-so-much-i-did.html

I just absolutely love it - the look of stripes without all the ends to weave in!  And two balls of Homespun will make a decent-sized baby blanket. ^_^

How big are these lovely spiral blankets you are cranking out at an envy inducing speed?  ;D

I haven't measured these ones, but generally these turn out to be about 3' across (maybe a touch smaller, depending on the colourway).

OK officially done repainting and tiling the den.  Need to add to the walls but not sure yet how I am going to decorate.
I only took a few pictures before and during the transformation  
Here is a list of what was done:  I had to work in fourths and move evrything around the room as I painted and tiled in sections so I could slide the furniture around on towels.
1. Old sewing machine base was painted green, cleaned and re painted it.
2. Tile was 12 inch square green marble vinyl tile...... now shades of cream and Lt brown 18 inch vinyl tiles.
3. Walls where off white......repainted a Lt cocoa.
4. Trim was a sage green.....repainted it an off white
5. I did have a jungle theme......all marked and packed for a garage sale.
5. Alabaster mini blinds......changed to cinnamon bamboo.
5. I have plans to sale all my curios in the cabinets, charming tails and a few Boyd's bears just to much clutter.
6. Vintage games dusted organized and stacked inside an antique wardrobe and on a vintage school desk.




















I have moved my back up sewing machine it is headed to the repair shop and BF sat it in what he thought was an out of the way place. Need to find a new desk chair, and make a mat for under the slot machine not a bath towel and to think this room is never used.

Have you tried Ravelry? Knitting or crochet?

Bearded Viking Helmet (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bearded-viking-helmet) (knit)
Volga Viking Hat and Beard (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/volga-viking-hat-and-beard) (crochet)
Dwarven Battle Bonnet (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dwarven-battle-bonnet-2) (knit)

Of course, you could use any beard tute, and any hat/helmet pattern and just sew them together - I don't think any of them are made in one piece. That would open up a lot more crochet options to you too.

Wow, quaggy, big project! Congrats! Seems like you did a speedy job of it (or maybe I'm just slow -- it would have taken me at least twice as long!)

And yes, that beard is really cool! I made a yarn beard for my son many years ago for a costume, but it wasn't anywhere near as splendiferous!

I finished two winter-themed wreaths for me (one for office, one for home). I'd made some yarn-wrapped wreaths as Christmas gifts for relatives this year, but really wanted one myself, too. They are made from all kinds of snips and scraps from my craft stash, as well as recycled wool sweaters.









2 down, 48 to go!

I love love love the ivory one,  hmmmm this might just inspire me.
I am not a knitter or crocheter.....the yarn that you used is a textured bumpy yarn?  Correct, I love the look of it!  Fantastic job!
 
Not quick at all, I started the day before New Years Eve and worked about 16 hours a day.  I have been on a two week vacation and always start out the new year with a big project. I painted out the Old Year and in  the New Year!

Well, it seems speedy to me (I could never work on it for 16 hours a day, so it would take me twice as many days!!!  :D)

Yes, the yarn is very thick and bumpy. It was on sale 50% off at my local Michael's. I think it was called "Country Loom Loops and Threads". And the little snowbird was a Christmas ornament that was on sale for 80% off!

My first finished project of 2013!  And guess what...  Its the same project I finished at the beginning of 2012.



I started this right after Christmas so its a carry over from 2012.  I think its just the time of year.  I always end up doing scarves over the Christmas Holiday.  I'm working on another scrap scarf right now too because I have teachers fighting over who gets the finished one right now.  ::)

Finished my WIP from 2012

Superhero ornaments. I posted a thumbnail on my list, but they didn't come out entirely like I had imagined. I still love them, but now they are going to be packed up with the rest of Christmas stuff until next year. :(

But, better late then never haha.

What did you make the magnet board out of, kaz814? Is it a tray, or the lid of a tin, or what? I may have to make one, too!

Love the fun slippers!

The magnet board is the top of a big popcorn tin I received.  :)  So far, it's working perfectly!

Oh I am enjoying looking at everyone finished projects.  The white/cream bird wreath is very pretty.  Usually i dont like wreaths, but that is just so pretty and elegant.  I think its because its all one color-simplicity yet elegance.  Also enjoyed quaggys pictures.  I love seeing how people decorate and arrange there things.  The slot machine looks so neat!  Love the amoir too.  All those games-looks like a fun way to spend the day playing them all.  I like the colors you used, Ive always liked those shades together.  I still need to charge my battery so i can post photos of the 2 things i made this year from my list.  Having a list and a specific place to post photos and chat with others all on one thread is very motiving. :D

So much good stuff!  I want to make some of those wreathes, and get a spinning wheel, and and and and...  :D

I have officially completed 4 projects, three of which I did not get pictures of before they went to their new home, but that's okay because I'm going to end up making a good 6-8 more of them, so I'll get a picture of one of those... they all look alike, anyway. 

I was hoping to finish #5 today, but I've had a horrible headache and I don't think I'll get done knitting my squid.  :/  I did, however, discover "The Big Fat Quiz of the Year" and have spent most of the day watching episodes of that.  :D

ok I just need to say that I'm in again this year, I just need to find some time to sit at the computer and post my list. I tried doing it on my phone but it really was too hard!

I have however finished 2 items, but being a true craftster I was making up to the point of having to get ready and leave so I forgot pics. I have however asked my aunty to snap some for me and send to me. I made an apron for my aunty's new wife in her fave colours (and I must have found tge most time consuming pattern online!) and for my aunty I finished a set of fabeic/felt coasters that I started last year for her birthday but didn't get done so I have now finished them for a belated Christmas. So once I have photos I will have an entry to the Jan challenge!

here is the pic of my last minute gifts. My aunty isn't the crafty type and I didn't give specific instructions, so they aren't the best for seeing the pieces, but I can't complain since I forgot to take them!


the apron was in Lisa's fave colours and the coasters (which you can't really see at all) were made from white felt scraps at the bottom and some precut fabric squares I inherited from my gran. Finally found a use for some more of them. I trimmed the top with some purple grosgrain ribbon. As I said in my earlier post, I started these coasters last year for my aunty's bday but didn't get them done in time, so they got left and at the last minute I decided the last three should have their ribbon attached! So glad to have a WIP out of my "started" box!

I started making my Mom a hat on my knitting loom right before Christmas, then I got sick for over a week  :P  I finally finished her hat today, it's a little big though, also it's very hard to take a pic of yourself wearing a hat!  :D



I also made Pumpkin dog treats for Lola

My first project of 2013... our 28th Annual 12th Night/Holiday Party.  This is our major production for the year and we can spend months getting ready.  We had a slow start this year so it was a mad dash in the last week.  But we got it done and had a great time.  I have been posting recipes and prep pictures on my blog.  I'll be posting more pics of the party and more recipes over the next several days.  You can scroll down or search 12th night if you want to see more.

So I have what may sound like a stupid question but how is everyone handling pictures?  Are you posting thumbnails in your list, linking to photos, linking to posts, just generally posting them in the thread, or a combination.  Also if you are just linking to photos or doing thumbnails in the list if its inspired by something else how are you handling giving credit?  I saw a mix of different methods from 2012 and was just wondering how those worked out.

I have two WIPs from 2012 finished and a new project from this year, and even though I can't post pictures of the two WIPs for a little while longer since they are for a swap I was hopping to post a pictures of the suncatchers I just finished, but haven't decided how to go about it.

Modifying your original list with thumbnails is a great way to document your work.  However, we won't see those unless we specifically go and look at your first reply where that list is located.  Posting pics or links to each project as you go along lets us see what you are doing as you are doing it.

Wagonswest, this is such a neat idea. Just in this last year, I've been wanting to find a way to have an after the major holiday's rush party. Being on the 12th day of Christmas is an added bonus for us as it is also my husband's birthday.

Thanks for the great idea and that spread looks yummy.

Master Four and I made a painting this morning. Inspired by my Pinterest, and it being DP's birthday, we did one of those sticker letter resist paintings. It was supposed to be Master Four's project, but he decided halfway through he didn't want to paint, so he chose the colours and directed their placing.



Finally I'm off the starting line though!

I like posting photos in the thread, and then adding thumbnails to my list. I prefer photos over links, because I know that sometimes I'm too lazy to follow links when other people post them, and there are probably other people like me out there.

The thumbnails on my list are pretty much just for my reference, but I also used my list last year when my relatives wanted to see stuff I had done. I just brought up my list, and there were almost all of my projects, with little clicky pictures attached.

Post by: AlishaMisha on January 07, 2013 01:18:28 AM
Argh....I'm working on a long overdue WIP for the challenge (pretty sure it was on my 2011 list! :P) but since it's gotten shuffled around so much I spend more time detangling the ball of yarn than I do actually crocheting!  Not to mention that the recipient of the blanket has since moved from Wisconsin to Florida and probably no longer needs a throw blanket, but it's the principle of the thing.  Plus it gets the yarn out of my house.  ;)
If they are anything like me they will still use it. Air conditioning gets cold. Especially when someone else feels hot and is controlling the thermostat. I am always throwing on my hoodie and socks when I go in my condos in FL. There are no throws there so I usually keep a blanket from a pull out couch bed that I am not using to keep warm.

Question for all of you - I am thinking of having a craft party. I have been to some that were really fun, but they had people who were all fairly experienced crafters and they brought their own WIPS. Have any of you hosted a craft party for a wide variety of skills and experience and had it been successful?
I was wondering this too. I don't know where to start....I was thinking maybe making lipbalms as a group? Fun, easy, useful and noncrafters can do it without needing a skill but still feel accomplished.

My aunt last summer was getting me giddy because she was talking about hosting one (she isn't crafty). Then suddenly she was talking about skills like knitting when only 2 of us knit (there are 28 cousins and 30 something of their children). I said "How are they going to do that project if they don't know how to knit?" She replied with "Oh, well, I thought you could teach us!".... ...ummm, yeah, no thanks. Convenient to host a party and invite someone just so they can do all the work for you huh? Do you know how hard it is to teach that to a group? (let alone an individual as I am a horrible teacher) Starting a project that she wanted would involve the sometimes hard to grasp basics like guage, yarn, needles and not to mention stitches and reading a pattern! She was nuts to think I could or even would. Let alone in one sitting!

that1girl and AlishaMisha...I am counting on you for new yarn patterns!  You guys find the best! :D
Awww you're cute  ;D

I am pretty sure that I usually don't post links of the patterns, and I really should. So here are the patterns (all ravelry links) from 2011 and 2012! (well things I used a pattern for anyways)
Crochet Market Bag (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mum-market-bag)

I finished two screen print shirts.  My first and 2nd attempt at screen printing so Im very pleased that they look so crisp.

missmoppet - they are brilliant! What method did you use? Did you get the real deal equipment? This is definitely a skill i want to learn this year, although I was thinking to go for tights and glue for now! - bad move?

Skittlebub -- no pattern for the wreath flowers. All just quick freehand things.

  • For the sweater flowers, just cut a wavy circular spiral and then roll it up. 
  • For the loopy felt flowers, fold a strip of felt in half lengthwise and glue just one edge. Cut slits in the free edge (from the fold toward the glued part) about every 1/4 inch, and the roll the strip up. 
  • For the eyelet, lace, and tulle flowers, hand-stitch and gather one edge of a strip of fabric or trim (single thickness OR folded in half lengthwise) and put a button or other embellishment in the center. 
  • I also cut a few 5-petal flower shapes and stuck things (like felt balls or other things) in the center. 
  • At least one of the flowers was a purchased craft store clearance item from my stash, rather than handmade by me. I really raided my stash for tidbits of stuff to put on my wreaths!

Hope this helps -- let me know if you need better instructions on anything.

The sticker resist painting and superhero ornaments are great-- I'd not seen those techniques before. Both look like they would be fun for the kiddos! The Jack Skellington head pillow is cool, too -- I can visualize a set with different facial expressions! The Yoshi tees look totally professional!

 I hadnt posted the photos as Id read somewhere you can only post the photos once.

There are two exceptions to that rule: swaps and craftalongs .

What I like to do is a detailed post on the appropriate board for the project, and then post here with a picture, maybe an opinion on the project, and a link to the detailed post.

I'm calling these my Matchy-Matchy slippers... not really my style (apparently), but they only match as much as variegated yarn will let them. :P

I finished two screen print shirts.  My first and 2nd attempt at screen printing so Im very pleased that they look so crisp.

missmoppet - they are brilliant! What method did you use? Did you get the real deal equipment? This is definitely a skill i want to learn this year, although I was thinking to go for tights and glue for now! - bad move?

I used a Yudu machine.  Ive been wanting one for a long time.  And since we moved and live far from family now, all the inlaws sent us visa gift cards because they wanted to make it easy for xmas.  I managed to find a person on ebay selling a new yudu at 50% off.  So, for $99.00 usd i snagged a new yudu and it included free shipping too!  The yudu machine, it really is a simple process too.  Those shirts were my first and second attempt and i think they turned out nicely.  I never heard of using tights and glue to screen print though, it sounds interesting.  Course, the Yudu is probably easier.

I've always wondered about the Yudu machines.  I've done the tights and Mod Podge before, it will get the job done, but it takes a little practice to get it really clean.  My boyfriend totally made me pin those shirts to his "crafts to make for him" board for swaps.  :)

Yeah, I always wondered about them too.  But this year with the inlaws gift cards and the yudu at only $99 I thought I would try it.  It really is fun.  I kept thinking-how in the world does that thing work?  But when it arrived and I read the manual I was like "Oh!  Thats how the thing works!  It really is easy!"  ha ha.  After my dear hubby seen how crisp and professional the yudu does prints, he now wants me to screen print all the employees some work shirts now even.  They only thing I would say though-is that i realized the supplies for the yudu can be a bit pricey.  So my advice would be to wait for a sale to buy it.  I seen Joanns was having a sale all yudu supplies was 50% off.  So, thats how I bought my supplies.  The inlaws us all sent visa gift cards-so that made it nice as i was able to purchase a nice amount of supplies and the yudu machine all at 50% off.

wow, this thread is moving really fast!  It's hard to keep up.  Lovely stuff so far though!

missmoppet - you may be able to use speedball screenprint ink with the Yudu - it comes in larger containers and I think works out to be cheaper than the Yudu inks.  Your shirts came out great.

I use a YUDU too. I actually don't use any of their supplies which I find way too expensive. I use Speedball photo emulsion which is slightly messy but allows you to pull to every edge of the screen and therefore allows more screen surface! A bottle is good for multiple screens and way cheaper (and I had major problems getting the yudu photo emulsion sheets to stick to the screens, did you find this too?). I just normal Speedball ink for screening, I found it stains the screens less than the YUDU ink did too.

Love all the projects so far! I am feeling a bit behind in my photo postings, but I didn't get as far along as I had hoped this weekend so all of my projects are partially done - I have 5 or 6 in progress right now - can't seem to just focus on finishing one!

AlishaMisha - lip balm is a good idea! I haven't made any in ages... need to see how much supplies would cost since that one is not in my current stash...    I am sure that your aunt had good intentions, but, yeah. That would have been a mess!!

Can't quite believe how fast you are churning these out! ???! They are awesome  :D

Struggling to get DS1s jumper finished (back and 3/4 front done) but keep getting distracted (this board going SO fast doesn't help  ::) 8)) and my anxiety disorder kicking off again - probably because of the holidays, any break from routine (especially with the boys) thats longer than about a week makes me struggle :( so dreading the summer already.  :o

The beard for my BIL was a hit!  Here is him wearing it Friday night:



He wore it all night long, except when we ate ice cream.  Though he did require a straw so he could drink his soda.  ^_^

My other BIL was so jealous and would sadly say "Jill, I want a yarn beard".  So, I whipped him up one on Saturday, since I had nothing better to do (except clean the house, but who wants to do that?  Psh, not me!).  I took it with me on Sunday to church and gave it to him then. 





And here's what it looks like from the inside:


Yeah, I'm totally making more of these.  They are way too much fun!  Plus, I have enough yarn left over to make at least one more black beard and one more brown beard.  ^_^  I want a red/brown one for myself.  So far 2013 has been very beardy!

smashu and cursive_queen-thanks for the tip on the speedball inks and the emulsion too.  I was shocked at the cost, so I will most definantly look into those.

Wow - that is a great deal :) I would love to give this a go, I'm not sure if they sell these here in the UK. I had a go silk screening once at a t-shirt supplier when I was picking up some personalised t-shirts. I loved it!! Might try with the tights first and work my way up

Ok I am now so jealous! I added this pattern to my list after seeing your 1st one, but after an hour of swearing and getting grumpy I think I am going to have to take it off my list  >:( - I just dont get how this pattern is supposed to get started!  I really havent done that much crochet so that could be part of the issue, but I just dont follow what the pattern is saying.

Ah well. At least I tried  ::)

Another thing that works well is Lotion Bars. Same ingredients minus the flavoring oil/essential oil. I have to do the math on supplies too because I am running low and I plan on making a bunch as part of party favors for a baby shower that will be at the end of July...

Which brings me to another thing....
I am going to be an Aunt again! I have a 1 1/2 year old niece and she is now going to be a big sister. I have been keeping it hush hush for a little over a week now. Only my parents and I know. My sister-in-law's immediate family still don't even know yet. Anyways, I figure you guys could keep a secret  ;)  So that is probably why some of you have seen "BabyM" on my list.

It seems as if everyone is pregnant or just had a baby.  My brother-in-laws wife and I have two cousins(3rd cousins) that are pregnant.  Then, 3 other realitives of mine just had babies within the past year.  And my sister and brother-in-law are going to start trying this summer.  Im glad that they are all excited about the baby mania, but I sure would hate to have to start all over again!  Our kiddo is almost a teen, and he has been a fantstic kid.  But the thought of starting over-dear hubby and me are like 'oh no no no no!'  With that being said though-I have plans to make some baby gifts this year.  I have bibs on my list already.  Im also thinking of some embroidered onesies as well.  And I want to make a deer hat for one of the babies too.

In my family there is ALWAYS someone pregnant. Usually 2 at a time. It has been that way my whole life. Right now the youngest generation in my family (the one below me) is going to have the first of a new generation. So, currently my SIL is pregnant and my cousin is pregnant. And let me mention that only half the 28 of us cousins have had kids. Now that one of their children will be having one it is a whole new generation to start counting.

Congrats! Too funny that it is the same situation! I have to make neutral baby things in the mean time. I think they will find out. Last time they were going to find out but not tell us, but they gave in the same day they found out. I plan on making a cotton green hat for it and then if we find out it is another girl then I will probably crochet a flower to put on it. We will see... She is only 6-7 weeks along right now, so I have time. Though I have already planned a lot of the details for the baby shower. It's going to be Bee themed :) I figured it is gender neutral and my niece loves this bee song that she gets all excited about...

Thanks, sheep!  That was exactly the look I was going for, though none of the characters specifically.  My hubby, mom, and I have seen it twice already.  The beards were so amazing and inspiring.  I was instantly wishing I had the capability to have such an epic thing like that on my face.  ^_^

I've wanted to make a beard since that one Etsy seller was featured on a web page I read, but was too intimidated.  I play D&D and one of the guys is a dwarf, and beard jokes are rather standard.  I think I could handle this one, though!  I may have to *groan* ADD SOMETHING TO MY LIST.  ;D

First project of 2013!  Fabric draft stopper. This was entirely made and stuffed with upcycled fabric and scraps :) Thank goodness! This new place is pretty drafty. I think I need to make some for the windows too if it is something that can be done (we've got interior window shutters).

It was sorta like that in my 'close' family for awhile.  Me, my uncle #1, my uncle #4 and my brother-in-law all have kids that are 3 months to 2 yrs apart.  Five boys and one girl.  Obvisouly boys run in my family.  So, the girl is my brother-in-laws.  And to make it even more interesting my best friend since kindergarten had a little girl within that time frame too, and her sister had a girl within that time frame too.

I finished my first project for the year!  It's a cardigan made from McCall's 5978, with red-tag sweater knit from JoAnn's.  The original pattern calls for facings and buttons, but this was really thin, so I just made bands on the front edge instead.  I really like the fabric, but I think it'll end up being more of a spring/summer type shirt, it's not warm enough for right now!   ;D


Sorry it's kind of blurry, my boyfriend is not a very patient photographer!  ::)
One down, 49 to go!

I finished a project last night. It's a throw pillow. I started making squares for a puff quilt but I didn't have enough fabric so I made a pillow instead. I'll get a picture up as soon as I can pry my husband away from the computer.

I am also going to be an auntie( but not the first time) sometime this summer.

I noticed your list includes "better necklace display".  Im not sure what you were thinking.  But, last year I did my very first craft show and the lady in front of us had a jewelry booth.  She took and old metal rake, popped off the actually rake part and painted it, then bent all the prongs backwards and hung necklaces on them.  It sounds weird-but just close your eyes and imagine it.  It was really was a neat way to display necklaces.  Even dear hubby seen it and goes "wow, I would of never thought of using a rake."

Wow, what fun and amazing projects everyone is doing and it is only the second week of January! I myself have two to start my list off with.

I bought my very first spinning wheel on Saturday, so my first project of the year was to learn how to use it. it took a few hours to get going so I am counting it!

The second would be my first wheel spun yarn! This is also my very first time plying, but I won't count that separately. I do still need to set the twist, but I'm too excited and happy with it to wait to show it off.

This is thick and thin as I still need to get used to the wheel, but it still came out pretty and super soft. It is 100% Merino.

I really don't know what this challenge is about but a fair warning, i am not a us citizen, nor residing in north america (or south america for that matter, i am in Turkey) so you can take of my name from the list if it is not international.

alwaysinmyroom: I LOVE those Doctor Who hats!
vampedangel14: Such yummy yarn goodness, I really love the different widths and it looks so soft.

I got two projects done today!

First, two of my friends wanted to learn how to crochet, so we made a party of it! One of them already knew how to do the basic stitches, and brought in a pattern she found to make a little elephant so I could help her understand it.

This is what came from my little night of crocheting! An unexpected addition to my amigurumi family and to my project list!

Meet Humphrey! He's about 3 inches long! So tiny!


Here's the link for the pattern if you want a mini elephant friend of your own.
 Pattern  (http://lucyravenscar.blogspot.com/2010/02/bazaar-patterns-incy-wincy-elephant.html)

My second project is this:




Close-up of the stitches:


It is an infinity scarf for my boyfriend's younger sister. She requested a gray one that could match multiple outfits easily. She's getting this tomorrow when we had back home, so I hope she likes it! This pattern was super easy, and stress-free so if you want a great project to practice crocheting, I recommend this one! Already planning one for myself.

(Ignore the crappy pictures...bad lighting and phone cameras don't mix well)

March 30th we are having a party at our house and since it is the day before Easter I came up with an idea to motivate me to get my art room finished as well as to do some creating.
This is a Goth party so the theme is "Blood and Chocolate" so I am taking hollow Easter eggs, filling them with chocolate and a number that goes to a grab bag.  I will be making 30 small mixed media pieces of art all with at least some red in them, I will be making them from say 4x4" minimum to 5x7" Max, I will use different surfaces and a variety of techniques and supplies and since I want to use up my stash as much as possible I will only give myself a budget of $10 total, mostly to buy some more red paints and a few sheets of thick foam core to use as bases to build some of the 'canvases' with.  Other surfaces will include the covers of $0.25 small journals I got at Michael's,some sturdy small boxes I have and possibly a small hoopla. 
My goal is to have the art room done by Feb 9th (one month away) and get all the art pieces done in the 6 weeks after, leaving time to prepare for the party.  Each piece will be unique and I plan to try at least 6 different techniques.

alwaysinmyroom- I really like the style and color of those dr. who hats.  I have never seen that movie(or is it a tv show?)  I have heard lots of people talk about it, so apparently its very popular.  Do you have a link to the pattern you used for the hats?

vampedangel14-that yarn looks so soft!  And the color is very pretty too.

I really don't know what this challenge is about but a fair warning, i am not a us citizen, nor residing in north america (or south america for that matter, i am in Turkey) so you can take of my name from the list if it is not international.

This is for everyone, not for a specific country! Feel free to join in. All you do is try to make 50 projects by the end of the year. Many of us are also in the destash-along so we are making those projects from things we already have in our stash.


Everyone, thank you for the comments on my first yarn. I think I may make a cowl of it since there is not too much there and because it is so soft I'll want to rub my face in it all the time, lol.

alwaysinmyroom - love the dr who hat colours :) and thank you for explaining the January challenge, I was a bit distracted last night.

vampedangel14- gorgeous looking wool, how long did it take?!

goktrose - humphrey is very cute hehe

Kookaloo_Starr - such a lovely puppy, great idea! We were thinking about fostering a dog - is Sharnie your first? Meet Camara,  my dog when I grew up - she's half staffy (This photo must be a good 6 years old but Camara is still going strong):

<- this isn't a Craft photo, will I get in trouble? I'm still getting used to the posting rules on here!

PaperBeau, we have a 3 year old Golden Labrador of our own and Sharnie belongs to my youngest son who is possibly coming back home to live soon, we decided to look after Sharnie for him whilst he tries to find alternative accommodation where he would be able to keep her. To be honest we might end up keeping her ourselves, she has some bad habits that need correcting and (luckily) my hubby is good at making dogs behave  ;D

Camara looks like a very happy girl  ;D good to know she's still going strong!

I have never seen that movie(or is it a tv show?)  I have heard lots of people talk about it, so apparently its very popular. 

missmoppet - Doctor Who is a British television show on the BBC. Its the longest running Sci-Fi show ever. It's been on since the 1960's. It follows a time traveler (The Doctor) through his and his companions adventures. It went off the air in the 1990's and started back up in 2005 or 2006 or so I think. I am a big fan of the newer episodes.

My husband and I came across it on our Netflix queue and are all caught up now on the newer seasons.  ;) The Doctor regenerates every so often, so he changes and he finds new companions every so often as well. So the characters (and actors) are always changing. Some people love it, some people hate it... like Star Wars and Star Trek...

I love those hats though. I wanted a scarf like The Doctor's, but then I realized it was knitted and it was super dooper long... Those hats are a nice tribute without being 9 feet long.  :D

I basically winged the hats using a basic beanie concept on circular needles...you know, a memorized pattern in my brain!

awww--crafting for our pets...I think I will write that down for a future challenge...

goktrose--pretty pretty infinity cowl!  I need to use more greys--they are very versatile...and I see midnight crocheting is yielding more cute amigurumis!

T'wasn't me, t'was goktrose. I've started on a cowl/scoodie/ewok thing, but it's been far too hot here, and also, I only have one skein of the "right" colour, so I'm half hearted about the project now. Having a slow mo start to the year.

I'm crocheting mine. Back loop only & it gives the same horizontal ribbed effect the scarf has on the show

I just finished ... um... half finished? 5 altered playing cards for a swap. But even the one side finished is exciting :D My first paintings ever. 5 of them. Woohoo!

Sadly, I'm apparently not meant to do ATC or APC or anything of the sort... I'm just not any good at making them look great. But I had fun with paint.

Suggestions on how to "finish" them? Is there something to coat them with to maybe add a hint of gloss, or at the very least keep the paint from accidentally scratching off?

I am also going to be an auntie( but not the first time) sometime this summer.
Congrats! I have had a blast with my niece. She is at the fun age of 1 1/2 and it is fun to watch her grow and figure out the world. Bizarre to think she is going to be a big sister. I am curious on what the new baby will be like and how Michelle will react to it. She already gets jealous when her mom holds her younger second cousin. How many nieces/nephews do you have already?

On a crafty note - I haven't got much done at all this year. I carved 4 stamps, but that was on the same night. My brain wants to craft but my body is telling me no with a streak of migraines everyday for the past 1.5 weeks. I get them all the time, but when I have them everyday without a day to recover it just runs me down. So, not much from me, but I am sure I will be forcing myself to make something soon, and I am sure it will be baby related or probably more stamps for me to place in letterboxes in FL next month.

The afghan is gorgeous---I am so envious of your yarn...the colors are gorgeous!  Those socks are coming right along!

I know I said I was done with knitting socks after I made ONE sock, but, yeah, I got yarn for another pair...:D

Welcome newbie member LadyPhoenixRising!  Your list is awesome and some items are so "borrowable" :D.

ED--on the paper boards, there is a whole thread devoted to making ATC's, hints, tips, etc.  I use paper modge podge...some people complain because of the stickiness, but I use a fine grade sandpaper or wax paper to take down the stickiness...sandpaper gives a duller surface, wax paper shines it up! :D

deathbeforedishes-Thanks for the Dr. Who information.  It sounds interesting.  I will have to check out.  I could totally watch it and work on my knitting.  :)

tinybits-I definantly want to make Twilight items.  I love bellas striped green/cream beanie.  And those mittens!  Oh mercy me, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the mittens.  Course, Im not sure when i will actually start making them.  You know, 50 projects in 2013.  I do have a pattern saved on Ravelry for both of the items.  Hmmmm....if you start a thread for Twilight projects, it might would motivate me to start on them.  Besides-its winter and although its too warm him for bellas mittens-my mom could use them in her area-she can walk to the post office and her her hands toasty warm in them.

And my crafting progress for this thread.  Working on arm length armwarmers for my sister.  Shes almost worn out the ones i made her xmas of 2011.  I wanted to have these made for xmas 2012 but, i was so swamped with making gifts I decided to wait and start making them this week.  Also, in process of making some doggy toys-for the ows 90 swap.  I have found a pattern for a cute little deer amigurumi.  My brother-in-law and his wife are expecting a baby mid next year.  So, thats another project I want to do early too.

Loving all yarnie goodness everyone is posting! Speaking of which, I finally gathered up all the granny squares I'd made previously and have started crocheting them together to finish Maddy's blanket. I might need to do some more squares. It's looking pretty small as I first started it right after she was born 2 1/2 years ago now!  :-[  I'm actually hoping to finish it by next week.

 Other than that, haven't crafted much in the new year. I'm working on some items for swap partners right now as well.

Last year at Xmas I made capes for all my nieces and nephews out of tshirts, but the eldest was disappointed with his - too old for dress up I guess. I promised him a pokemon, but never got around to finishing it. I've used the yarn for other things, so last night I made a little dude out of the one piece I'd managed to make, that was floating sadly around my WIP bag.



It was just a case of hooking up a moustache, and sewing on some googly eyes and some eye brows, but at least it won't make me feel guilty any more!

So, even though he didn't end up being a Pokemon, Mr Ovoid still counts as a completed WIP, right alwaysinmyroom?

i keep saying the same thing that I don't like sock knitting but I keep buying sock yarn and knitting them for others.

I have a sock yarn addiction, but I don't make socks. I just like the long colour runs of self striping yarns. Especially the rainbow ones. But then, everyone who was in this thread last year already knew that right?   :D

Hey,  This is a bit off-topic but it relates to one of my crafty cooking projects.  I need some recipe/menu suggestions from my Australian friends. 

I promised my friend that I would create a menu around whatever wine she picked and we would have a swanky dinner party.  She picked an Australian red.  I can't find any good resources for pairing it with Australian foods.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

We do not really have an national foods. What type of red is it?? Pavlova is considered Australian, one of my friends has a vegiemite stir fry (thank god it does not taste like vegimite) I do not know if roo is available, but you can always try that. Croc is nice.

What type of red is it?? I will talk to a few people I know and see if we can find something that will go nicely. Are you or your friend vegan or vegitarian??

Love all the gorgeous yarnie stuff! I tend to collect yarn because I love the idea of it, but am just not very good about doing anything with it...

tinybits - That afgan looks gorgeous!

leather and lace - can't wait to see how your binding! I have found that I am not very patient when it comes to hand-binding, but I certainly love them!

SilverMood - Mr Ovoid is super cute! I am sure that your nephew will love him!

I have been doing a lot of crafting, but not getting anything done... I have now created six new WIPs that I have put aside to "think about" since they were not coming along as I had envisioned, and am only getting close to finishing one item. I console myself with the thought that I am setting myself up to complete WIPS if the WIPS challenge returns! ;)

I am on ravelry and people there always talk about knits in the movies. mind you i am a serious knitter since 2004 (thanks craftster!) and not once I give much thought about knits in the movies. I listened to the audiobook of the series a couple of years back and refused to watched the movies till recently. I don't know why but they started to sound so appealing all of a sudden so i got all the DVDs and watched over 3 days. If it wasn't for the ravelry I wouldn't have notice the mittens Bella was wearing in the first movie. I didn't even notice the knit scarf she was wearing in the same movie until i turned to ravelry to find more twilight inspired items.

thanks everyone complimenting on my afghan..

yoopidou, i really don't like the options they have for baby yarn, white with pastel colors for girls and blue and white variations for boys. it gets boring.. The cardigan I am knitting for him is grey tweed, he will be like a lil grandpa :)

alwaysinmyroom: I went and looked at glossy acrylic finishing spray at Hobby Lobby, but after discussing it with an employee... I decided to try my high-gloss decoupage finishing spray which I already had at home. So far, looks great. Just apparently it needs 24 hours to dry.... looks dry and feels dry to the touch, but... "hard touching" smudges up the surface so far. Not the paint part: just the gloss part.

I am obsessed with the yarn items in movies and tv shows...but only if I like the show..like the afghans in True Blood or the scarves in Dr. Who...:D

I think when you knit or crochet, you notice those things more...

Silvermoon...yeah, we'll count your WIP! :D

waggonswest--ha ha you might be able to find crocodile in the US but I doubt if you can find kangeroo! :D  Maybe you could make some meals substituting chicken or pork? :D

ED--I forgot about that spray!!!  I have a huge can of artist fixative spray that gives a nice shine after it dries...

I got the Pavlova already covered.  It is the rest of the meal that has me stumped.  Thanks. 

A hearty steak and prawn stir fry with a simple sauce of soy sauce, ginger, garlic with a dash of wine over rice and desert of mixed fruit with a light ginger infused glaze

I'll weigh in with 'Roo if you can get it. Roo goes great with red (just be sure not to over cook it, it's touchy like that. Oh, and ignore the smell while it cooks. It tastes a whole lot nicer than it smells. Before all the hipsters got in and bumped the price up to regular meat prices, I used to live on Roo because it was a third of the price of beef. Great in stir fry, but yeah, it does pong a bit)

I wouldn't go with prawns. Maybe it's personal opinion, but I always thought of them more as a white wine dish.

I'm not a Shiraz drinker myself, so I don't know the particular wine, but if it's not too bold, I have a great parmesan chicken and basil salad (http://silvermoon-dragon.blogspot.com.au/2009/09/hay-hay-its-donna-day-parmesan-and_18.html) recipe. If you can get hold of Lemon myrtle to go in the crumbing that would be even better.

I'm not a wine drinker (but most of my family are) and a nice red wine pairing would be slow cooked lamb shanks with garlic and rosemary. Not sure how readily available lamb is, but cooked long and slow, lamb shanks are fantastic.

Dang... do you know how long and hard I've looked for that website????  I haven't seen Roo at the butcher yet so I will probably go with something else.  I was trying to avoid lamb or mutton. 

THANKS for the suggestions everyone.

I really love how this thread is so communicative :D

By the way I would like to get your opinions on what counts as a "project". While I was browsing 2010 thread, i noticed OP posted "a project should take at least one hour to complete".. And I don't know if I agree with her. For me, even if it takes 10 minutes it is a project because personally I struggle with a lot of distractions and it is really hard for me to sit down and do something if i am concentrated on something online or other. So if I take my time to get inspired and do something it should considered as a project. What do you think?

I totally agree with you on that.  Course, the whole reason I started knitting was because of the Harry Potter movies.  I kept eye balling all the lovely knits in the movies.  And thinking "Oh, I want that!  Oh!  I love that!  Ah!  I need to learn to knit!"  Now though, since i do crochet and knit I notice even the tiniest knit/crochet items in movies/tv shows and in the stores.  We will be walking to to the dvd section and we will pass the hats and I will go "Oh oh oh!"  And my spouse and son will finish my sentence and be like "WE KNOW!  YOU COULD TOTALLY KNIT THAT!"  ha ha ha.  Yeah, its like an obsseive compulsive disorder.  Now, even the hubby and kiddo will spot things in movies and be like "oh!  make that for me!  You could make that!"

Time wise I dont agree with a that comment the person made.  To me a project has no set time frame, if its something you make/create then its a project wether it takes 5 minutes or 5 months.

As far as what is a project and what is not . . . I think it's all up to you. If you consider it a project, then it's a project. It's your list/goal, so how you want to count it is all that matters.

Personally I don't think time should matter. I can easily make a piece of jewelry under 10 minutes. If you consider it a project then I would post it.

I finished my first project of the year last night. Now I have to get around to take pictures of it.

No rules in this craftalong...it is your list...you can do your list however you like, or no list and just post finished projects and count them as you go! 

We are all chatty here and like to see all sorts of projects...some blow us away and others, like my making boring curtains for my laundry room, are all welcome! :D  It is whatever you craft or do yourself...I was going to exclude cooking, but for some people, cooking is not an everyday thing or it is indeed a special skill to learn, so making jams, bread, candy, etc. is in as well...

Reading 100 posts for this craftalong is NOT a project... ;D

Monday, I went back to work after the christmas break, so this week has been non-crafting. I have been sooo tired. Hopefully, I can pick something up this weekend. Am feeling twitchy.

I am involved in an online quilting bee with some friends, so will send fabric to them tomorrow so they can do my squares.
And I still have 3 cushion covers to get on with, the one that is done is lonely  ;D
And I saw a skirt that I would like to make - would be a nightmare (for me) to make!!

Good to see so much activity, I'm loving it.

Renstar - which skirt are you thinking about making?  Is it the rainbow skirt?  I made one of those last year and I LOVE it.  We're having such a warm winter here in NC, that I'm thinking about wearing it to work on Monday.

My crafting has been almost entirely based on Willy Wonka right now.  11 paper mache mushrooms in the works, plus dowel rods, props, costumes, etc.  Occassionally a bit of crochet if I'm lucky.  In fact, I'm going to go finish my coffee and crochet a bit before going back to working on Wonka props.  ::) :D

No, I was walking out for lunch the other day and in front of me was a diagonally stripey skirt (on a person of course :) ), so that at the seams the stripes came together in a v shape.

This kind of stripe action, but in the black and white fabric remains from when I made my high waisted skirt,

http://compare.ebay.co.uk/like/230539457028?var=lv&ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&adtype=pla&crdt=0
I want a more floaty version.


However, you know have me intrigued, what is the rainbow skirt??

Whoa whoa whoa!  Back the truck up!  Did you post wonka themed projects in this thread, did I miss something awesome?  I really would love to see wonka themed projects.  I love the movie!  (I cant watch the first one anymore-sad incident in my life)  But the one with Johnny Depp is so wonderfully awesome!

Projects!!!  I don't think I've seen the Johnny Depp version.  I absolutely LOVE Johnny Depp BUT I don't know, I love the classic version.  I'm worried it'll be like the new version of Alice in Wonderland.  I looked forward to it so much, but it was such a disappointment.

Well, you know edward scissor hands was....different, alice in wonderland was....different.  Its the same with the willy wonka....it has that odd johnny depp 'touch' to it.  But it is sooo good.  Without giving away any spoilers, theres a part with a crushed caterpiller and the expression on johnny depps face is simply priceless!  ;D

OK, folks! I'm in trouble! I went to a quilt show today and bought 4 more fabrics for DD#2's kimono quilt. That's good, right? Progress, right? No, that's bad; I already have over 200 fabrics for it. I do NOT need more Asian fabrics!!! But I just can't stop myself.

Then I found a booth that was selling merchant fabric samples dirt cheap. Now I have a child's fabric book and an apron to add to my list of things to make, plus have to decide what to make from the other samples. Then I found a booth teaching marbling and stenciling on paper or fabric, so of course I need to add those to my list. And Fabric Cafe was there with new chenille jacket patterns for children, so I HAD to pick up a couple of kits for my great-nieces. And a Faith, Hope, Love quilt pattern for my friend who's battling cancer.

And there was a weaving booth! They were weaving a shawl on a triangular shaped loom using one continuous yarn and no warp thread. Another project they were making was a round rag rug on something that looked a lot like a hula hoop. Now I want to try both of those things!

On the way home, DD#1 and I stopped at Hobby Lobby. Found the clearance area and bought 2 more embossing folders, a scalloped edge punch, and a new die for my Cuttlebug, so I really should add some papercrafting to my list, too. This is getting ridiculous! I am drowning in crafts and I lack the will power to stop.

On the up side, I did restrain myself from buying a new bookbinding machine. Almost bought a Zutter, but I'd already spent so much money that I decided to delay that purchase. Now I just need to keep delaying it until I no longer want it or I die. And at the rate my addictions are growing, DH may make that happen soon! ;D

kbrison-Im not sure the size of your fabric samples, but i bet patchwork mug rugs or potholders would a great way to use them.  Oh and Asian fabrics-I bet they are so pretty.  As far as you saying you have so much crafts supplies, I have always gone with this theory with my craft supplies-if I havent used the item in over a year then its time to give it to someone who will use it.

Im so excited-I was looking online last night at different stencils.  Im trying to find the perfect one to screen print an item for my sister.  And I found so many neat ones!  I dont have any blank shirts right now and as Im only doing stash projects right now, Im thinking of just making some pillow cases and screen printing on them right now.  I have an old bed sheet that would be perfect to make pillow cases with.

I'm calling this one the Colour Anxiety Blanket.  I used my Eventually Granny Square blanket pattern (http://fantasticmio.com/granny), but changed up the colour placement a bit.  I thought making things in a bunch of kooky colours would get me out of my neutral rut... not sure if it's working... I still feel a little anxious looking at this. :P



I do love what it looks like folded into thirds twice though:


This measures about 32" square and is headed off to charity at the end of the month. ^_^

Hoooooray, 3 hours free this morning to take the challenge of Lelyonna's apron !
Ok - so its not quite as good, but Im just a beginner machinist (having hand sewn for years).
I used an upcycled curtain bought for £1.50 (as is always my way ! )
Anyhow, so pleased with it - might just have to wear it all day :)

Everyone is off to such an amazing start - I've been a bit slow since I was multitasking between 7 different bags haha. But I'm finally done! I think the one I'm most excited about is my first Sherlock bag! check out the post here! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418972.0)

Highlights





I also made 3 Doctor Who themed bags, 2 Harry Potter themed bags, and 1 Valentine's Day themed bag! I won't spam you guys with pictures of the HP/DW, I'm sure you've seen enough, but the VD one turned out pretty cute  :)






Now what am I going to do next..... :)

To those in the uk - I'm in sussex, I run recycle days where I take groups into the local charity shop or to the local tip or to boot fairs and I show them how to upcycle.
We should get together and have a uk craftster tea party :) - just think of the bunting mmmmmm, we could even all have it as one of our 50 things to do ;)

I am sort of slacking on creating because I have an unbelievably huge project for cleaning and organizing my art room which was a total disaster at our last place and even after 5 months here is only starting to come around with help from UfYH on Tumblr and the DeStash...
blog posts about it with pics
The extent of the mess that is my art room and supplies -  http://wp.me/p1gb6Q-dG  (http://wp.me/p1gb6Q-dG)
Art room in progress, huge strides - http://wp.me/p1gb6Q-dM  (http://wp.me/p1gb6Q-dM)

The thing is as soon as it is done (goal February 9th or sooner) I will be starting a huge project of a bunch of small paintings (30-35)
I haven't been allowing myself to craft at home to keep from being distracted from cleaning but I like to doodle during D&D which we will be playing tonight so I am going to take one of my small art journals and do something simple in it to count as a project.
Wish me luck

Tonight was so hard, I was having serious neuropathy problems in my legs (nerves that shoot random messages causing pain and spasms) on top of being so tired I thought I was going to fall asleep during the game but I didn't want to ruin it for everyone so we played extra long and I tried to distract myself by working on a very simple quote art journal page (working on lettering)
6x6" black card stock mounted in a small scrapbook cover (no sleeves)
Prismacolor pencils and gel pen markers.



I think it came out good for how out of it I was.


So that is project #1 out of 50

P_E_S_T, what a fabulous way to upcycle! Never thought of using a curtain for wearable crafts... But now that I think of it, I guess you are in good company (Amy Adams in Enchanted and Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music!)

I always thought Scarlet in Gone With the Wind was the epic in recycling curtains into clothing.

Trina, that quote is awesome, I totally agree with it. I like the colors you chose, they make me happy, so you're probably in the right direction.
I hope you're feeling better now.

Thank you! I have been using font sites to look at charater maps and duplicate computer fonts and so this book will be all quotes and lettering work.

Also Thank you for the concern
I am doing a ton better, going to stay in today and rest, time to relax and just doodle around at sorting stuff

Three days without internet, I'm so behind! 

The Color Anxiety Afghan is amazing, I know what you mean about color ruts.  We all have out favorites, but it's good to try to break out sometimes.

Love the apron! That reminds me, I have an apron lying around that I started years ago...

And the art is gorgeous, and reminds me that I'm already behind on my Lifebook pages.  *sigh*

If I finish my squid project today I'll post pictures of the first eight projects of the year.  Wheee!  But I really need to motivate myself to get him done, he needs to be mailed out on Monday...

I've gotten a few pieces of jewelry done for my Duck's Unlimited donations and an eating disorder donations.
I am in a Yahoo group Art Charms. I've swapped charms and these are what I created with all the charms that I have gotten.

I love fonts, I can spend hours on font sites just looking at all the pretties :)
MissingWillow - the naan looks yummy, good thing I already had dinner or I would be raiding my kitchen. (I keep reading it as Na'an, which is a Hebrew name and has nothing to do with bread)
waggonswest - I love your quilt, the bright colors against the white are great, and the feathers are so pretty.
KriSmith - that's a lot of charms. I especially like the last one, with the tiny people, I'll have to show it to my mom, she'll love it.
tinybits - how great is it that you can just whip up a solution to a bad hair day like that. But, how did you know in advance that such a day was creeping up on you? That kind of information can be useful  :)

OH so much to catch up on, ladies you are a creative, productive bunch!

fantasticmio I LOVE the afghan, great pattern placement. and THANKS for taking your time to make a new thing to donate.

P_E_S_T great apron. congrats on learning a new way to sew. I hand sew small projects and they come along nice but I would love to be able to machine  sew bigger projects. BUT I am so anxious around a sewing machine, even with a toy one it feels overwhelming. It is like driving for me. And yes, you guessed it ight I don't have a driving licence  :-\

sheepBlue i will repeat here, those bags are lovely. you have a very distinguished style. i love it.

trinalocakary i feel you on organizing. I tend to make a mess too. Hopefully when I go back home I will get around my craft room to organize. and that art journal page looks great.

MissingWillow yummy! what a huge coincidence for me to run into delicious non-paleo recipes when i try to become one :P

waggonswest beautiful quilt

kriSmith nice jewelry. i love the black and white bracelet.

I have been crafting away.  I am done with my quilt, started last year.  I took the picture when I still had a few seams to cut for the frayed seam "ruffles".  That is done and now it is in the washer to get the raw edges to fray for the ruffly effect.

So much beautiful items in so little time.
Fantasticmo---great afghan, nice colors. It looks very warm.
Krismith---Oh, I love looking at charm jewellery. You are inspiring me to make one for myself.
P_E_S_T---Your apron is long enough to really protect your clothing, much more useful than the ones store bought.
Plaidpineapple---cute quilt. I hope you did better than me at cutting the edges. I cut too far and had to resew quite a few sides! Don't you find your hands hurt after all this cutting?
MissingWillow---I am tempted to lick the screen, naan bread is so good. Good thing I can't smell it...
Sheepblue---I love your Sherlock bag, but the Valentine's one is pretty charming too.
That1girl---Homemade socks? Wow! I only knit baby ones. Yours look very comfortable.
Trinalocakary--- I love your quote and the colors of the doodling are beautiful on that black background.
Wagonswet---What a wonderful idea to honor your family. The white background and simple geometric design really let the fabrics shine.
I am working on pillows for the couch.

So - beautiful people, I had the most fun yesterday and thought I would share as a) it will make you smile and b) puts me 6 / 50 in my 2013 crafting !

Yesterday was the birthday party for the daughter of my dearest friends - Anna and Duncan. 12 weeks ago, Duncan suffered an enormous stroke and I have been Annas extra adult over the last few weeks whilst Duncan regenerates.
Amalia was 5 and wanted a cat themed birthday party, so we had cat bowls with names on to eat party food, chalk drawn paw prints all over the front drive and sugar mice hunting.
She also wanted to "make stuff with Aunty Jolene", and so I got on my thinking cap, and came up with the idea of getting them making cat hand puppets.
I had already pre-sewn the basic shape, and sewn on the nose and mouth, I then popped onto the table various elements  for them to glue to the cat - patches for the tummy, ears and eyes. I had also sewn a button onto the rear end of the cat (It didnt hurt I promise), and I gave them each a length of cut up fluffy sock which I cut a quick botton hole in for them to slip onto the button - voila "TAIL !!!"
The final bit was a little bell on a pretty bit of button and tada !!! CATS !!!!!!!
Hope you enjoy :)

Everyone seems to be getting things done at a goodly rate except for me. Have been bogged down by school and other commitments, but hope to get my crafty stuff going soon. Have to start on my swaps too since postage rates go up here in the US on Jan. 27th. Want to do as many send-outs as possible before that date.

been very busy recently - but can't post most of what I've been up to yet because they are for swaps :P

What I can show you are the art journal pages I've been working on.

The February page for the art journal challenge:



The Pirates and the space in between them are for DS1's 4th birthday - he's having a pirate party :) Not sure how I am going to journal that, which is why I've left it blank and not put a journalling spot in.
The bottom right corner has a little bit of journalling as it's our 5th un-anniversary this year :)


I've got some more pages, from the 'Embrace the Day' class, but not photographed them yet.

OH - I also did biscuits with DS1 a few days ago (GO ME!!!!)
He saw them in his magazine, and kept on about them until we made them (and he's still on about them even though we've eaten them all)






And does making snowmen count??



Really bad image, sorry:

Wow everyone has done so much!

missing willow - that naan looks YUMMY!

sheepblue - I. love. your. bags. but- i would want one as a cushion cover so i could cuddle and admire it while watching tv.

tinybits - can it really be true that you finished a hat in one evening? How can you be so super fast??! It looks so great too!

pest - very very cute :) awwwwww!

tinybits - those socks are the best colour range - love the greens :)

Here's my latest shareable work (the others are for the challenge and for my sisters birthday - a painting I want to frame before I share online :)



It's a bubblewrap-print table runner, based on this thread I saw this morning:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419025.msg4961967#msg4961967  (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419025.msg4961967#msg4961967)

Socks really aren't that bad! Give it a go sometime, and if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a pm! :)

Everyone seems to be getting things done at a goodly rate except for me.

Don't worry about it! Some people have more time to craft than others. I know last year I was a lot farther ahead in the number of completed projects I had at this time, but it's okay. Be happy with what you do have the time to accomplish. :)

I've started yet another WIP. I'm crocheting squares for charity. I'm going to count each 12" square as one project, and 4 6" squares as one project. The best part? The person I'm sending to who seams up the blankets doesn't want the ends to be woven in!!! And she's doing the seaming!  :D Those are my two least favorite parts about making blankets out of motifs.

On of the dangers of letting this thread get away from me is that I find myself responding to comments made six pages ago!

Tinybits -- I'd never thought about finding patterns from TV shows and movies until recently.  But when the last Harry Potter movie came out, I found myself conducting a whole second sound track, commenting on the sweaters, hats, gloves.... and now I can't turn that track off, no matter what I watch!

I did it, I actually completed something!!! I made a beaded star from a diagram I found online. I'll take a picture tomorrow, as the sun is currently on the other side of the globe.

that1girl - wow, so many things, you'll be up to 50 in no time.
plaidpineapple - great quilt, makes me want to crawl right into bed and snuggle up with a book.
P_E_S_T - awesome birthday party! That's a great activity idea, I'll have to remember it for when my kid is a bit older.
tinybits - the colors of your socks remind me of Link from the Zelda games.
mini_mum - the biscuits look yummy. What's an un-anniversary?
PaperBeau - the print looks very subtle, it goes well with the rest of the table setting :) I don't think there are any special rules to posting new threads. Find the right category, write a nice title, add some pics and you're good to go.

Socks and quilts and mittens, oh my!  I really need to get in gear and get some stuff done.  I have a few finishes, but I wish it were more...  my backlog is so huge, I think it's on the verge of stressing me out.  :(

Project 1: Crocheted Fox (WIP from 2012). (pattern here) (http://nimoe.wordpress.com/2008/02/03/fox-amigurumi-pattern/)  I'm okay with amis until it's time to sew them together.  This guy only spent a few months as pieces, so not too bad (the longest a project has been like that is 10 years...).  He doesn't look quite right, the eyes are off (too high?) and I think he looks like a Dobby version of a fox, but...



Projects 2-6: Turbans.  A friend of mine (belly)dances in a restaurant, and she uses these hats when she pulls guys up on stage.  They wear out, and I made her some new ones.  There will be another group of them in a bit, but 5 was enough in one go.  I probably spent more time trying to figure out a time-saving way of doing them than it would have taken me just to hand sew all the bits...



Project 7: Oh, hey, look, a familiar project from 2012 - the hip scarf.  In red, for a friend.



Project 8: Squid bag.  Upsized from a pattern in AntiCraft: Knitting, Beading and Stitching for the Slightly Sinister, this pattern gave me FITS.  It's double-knit, so you knit the fin-bits and the circular part flat in the beginning, but that also means that one slip-up that you don't realize until round 20-ish means you have to pull everything out.  I ended up doing it all on double-pointed needles and just moved the stitches a lot from one to another.  Sewed in a lining and voila!  Squid!

smeddley-the squid back is really cool.

I made an itty Totoro for a commission. He's a little wonky, because the customer wanted to stuff it herself, so it's just sort of sitting there.

Now I'm working on turning the start of a scarf I didn't like into a cute pair of lacy gloves.

that1girl - Jeeze you must be a super fast knitter! I am impressed! You and alwaysinmyroom are like machines. I just don't understand. Even when my hands are in a blur, things still seem to take me a century.

trinalocakary - I'm sorry about the nerve issue in your legs. I know what it is like. I have nerve damage in both of my elbows that send painful shocks through my arms and fingers. It not much of an issue anymore in day to day life, but unfortunately I figured out that it gets aggravated when I knit and sometimes crochet. *smacks forehead* Hope you can find relief!

kbrison - What kind of binding machine do you currently have? I have been back and forth on what type I want (between comb and wire) and what brands. The Bind-it-All seems to be popular. I am a letterboxer and would find the machine helpful for making logbooks for the letterboxes, but since they containers they are in are sometimes exposed to moisture, I am afraid of rust. So that is my dilemma...

AlishaMisha - I currently have a comb-style binding machine, but am thinking about buying a wire-type, too. Most of the binding I do is related to school, collecting patterns or recipes into a booklet, or teaching professional development classes. The comb works best for those purposes. The initial cost of the machine is more ($300-350 range) but the spines are much less expensive ($11-15 for 50), pages can easily be added, removed, or rearranged, simple and safe enough that even children can use (although some materials may require an adult's strength to punch, even children can do the binding part easily), spines can be shortened with just a pair of scissors, spines can be labeled with markers or paper labels, books lie flat, spines come in a variety of colors and sizes and may be purchased at many office supply stores or on-line. My machine is 100% metal construction, fairly heavy, but very durable. I bought my machine through AccuCut.com and usually buy my spines at Office Depot.

Wire binding machines are much less expensive (about $70 for a Zutter or $100-130 for other brands) and have a lot of plastic in their construction. Binding wires are much more expensive than combs. They generally come in packages of 2-12 and cost about $1 for each spine. They also come in various colors and a more limited range of sizes. I have only seen the wires in stores selling the particular machine they fit, so wires may be harder to find. Wires are more decorative but they don't seem as practical for my purposes.

Hope this helps. Maybe someone with a wire binding machine can shed more light on their usage.

kbrison - Thanks for the info! That is a good point about the combs coming in a variety of colors...hmmmm. Something tells me that comb may be the way to go considering I will be binding in large quantities. I already have the combs as I make logbooks out of the prepunched paper, but that can get expensive and doesn't give you much freedom on paper. Also, I have been able to get about 4 logbooks from one comb when I am doing the mini ones, so I am able to make the combs stretch far. I found a good comb binding machine at Staples that they had on sale for only $49, I am figure if I am patient I can run into that deal again. Thanks again!

The craftster member recieved the package I sent her.  So, I can now post the items I made and add them to my 50 projects in 2013.  Okay, first are painted wooden spoon/fork.  Simple but really fun, I had some wooden utensiles and just acrylic paint to paint the ends.  They really are neat-Im thinking of paint more for our kitchen now.



And, I made some dog toys for her dog.  I used old blue jeans to make them.  As denim is super dureable and makes nice dog toys.  Ive used it in making dog toys for many other dogs for family and they have all enjoyed the softness without ripping the toys to shreds.  Plus, a great way to recycle old blue jeans instead of them being in a landfill.  I also used my embroidery machine to embroider the little darlings name on one toy, and 'bite me' on the other.  I like to use squeakies in the dog toys-but for these I didnt put any in them.  The squeakies I ordered still havent arrived and I was on a time limit, so had to send them off.

mini_mum - the biscuits look yummy. What's an un-anniversary?


Well - we got married in 2008, so our 5th year - but we got married on 29th Feb and there isnt one of those this year, so its me being a bit silly really, since we cant celebrate on the 'correct' date it isnt really an anniversary - hence the 'un' anniversary! :D

(does that make sense to anyone else?)

And the star biscuits were yummy!!

Vests are a really good starter - easy easy - get a Debbie bliss pattern book, I find the patterns are writing very clearly and line by line, instead of the millions of abbreviations which will get easier to understand the more you have made x

mini_mum - that makes perfect sense. My brother has a friend who was born on the 29th, so they always tease him about being just a few years old :)

I managed to drag myself outside in the cold to take some pictures of my star (had to go outside anyway to pick up my daughter, but that makes it a lot less dramatic):



So that's one.

Everyone seems to be getting things done at a goodly rate except for me. Have been bogged down by school and other commitments, but hope to get my crafty stuff going soon.

I have done 1 small art journal page and tied Lincoln logs to wire racks with wire to make paint holders....period.  all my time (and I don't work full time or go to school) is being absorbed by my craft room sort and life in general.  So don't feel bad not everyone is whipping out crafts and we all go at the rate we can.  :)

trinalocakary - I'm sorry about the nerve issue in your legs. I know what it is like. I have nerve damage in both of my elbows that send painful shocks through my arms and fingers. It not much of an issue anymore in day to day life, but unfortunately I figured out that it gets aggravated when I knit and sometimes crochet. *smacks forehead* Hope you can find relief!


Owe, I was just thinking I am lucky it is my legs and not my arms/hands.  I do OK if I stay hydrated and sleep enough..both of which I slack at.  Crafting helps.
This site rocks for keeping me motivated especially this craft along and all of you  :)

I'm thinking each one of those jewelry boxes would count as a project for me...  :) Really skillfully painted!

I love the tech-y pendant. Seeing all of these cool projects keeps making me want to add things to my list! I have a box full of computer parts somewhere... Hmmmm....

I finished a plushie tonight. I'd been working on it for a long time (two failed versions are on my craft table right now!)

Audio your boxes are adorable. I absolutely love the skull ones, and think I need one in my room! ;)
And I made need to steal the idea of those shelves you made, since they are perfect as I try to organize my crafting area!

I was in Vegas for the weekend with my boyfriends family and when I came back there was like 15 more pages! However, I still managed to be somewhat crafty, and restarted crocheting my very long WIP pair of socks while on the airplane. I made the toe of one a year ago and now only have the heel to put in my first sock! Not sure if I will finish the other one anytime soon, since my semester starts back up in a week and that teeny tiny sock yarn takes forever to get anywhere with (it is my first time trying to make socks)! So does just a single sock count for the January entry? ;)

Work has me swamped right now and is causing my carpal tunnel to act up. It's hard to work on Maddy's crochet blanket right now. I am sewing some stuff for a swap right now and trying to start organizing some of my craft clutter to get on with my goal of having a fun, clean, organized craft area.

I see kittykill has posted our first Valentine project--lovely wreath!

fantasticmio-wow, that is a long scarf!  How long is it exactly? 

StickerChic87-I love that spiral scrubbie.  The colors are so pretty, they remind me a pretty summer sky.

I completed another item today.  A screen print shirt for the kiddo.  A birthday gift for him.  It turned out good.  I really love screen printing!  Anyways, the shirt is drying now.  So will post pictures later.  Im also working on some super long fingerless gloves for my sweet sister.  I messed up on it so, I have to redo some of it, but it will look so nice when its done.  :)

It's hard to say for sure (when you wear it, it stretches quite a bit) but laying it flat, it's about 12'4" long (not including the tassels)

Hello SenatorOrgana!  Nice to see another bellydance person!  :D

Love the plushie - learning to sew dolls was on my list of things to do, but it's fallen off since I probably need to get my WIPs in hand before I tackle something new.... hahahahaha...  yeah, it's nice to dream!

All the Dr Who scarves are inspiring!  I have the pattern, and the yarn, to make one, I just haven't started.  I do like the idea of a project that's just knit knit knit knit knit so I can watch movies and stuff, but the sheer size of it has always made me pause.  But it's time to start that bad boy!

I've started project #9, but I'm afraid I'm going to run out of yarn.  :/  And it was an unlabeled stash yarn, so...  bummer...

My husband was messing around on Netflix the other night and watching just a few minutes of each new season (of the old ones) of Dr. Who, just to see how much they changed as time went on.

I happened to glance at the tv, and I practically shouted. "That's the scarf." Ha, I finally saw it on the doctor.

That is one of my goals this year! However, except for a pair of socks that I started in late December, that hasn't happened yet. Oh well, it's still early in the year!

So, here's some new stuff that I've made instead of working on my WIPs.  ::)

12 6" granny squares to be donated to charity (4 squares = 1 project)

I've had this project done for a while, but just finally got it hung up!

My parents had this old wooden shelf in their basement, so I very happily took it off their hands!
With the help of my dad, I added some hooks to the underside and then I brought it home and painted it to match my bathroom. The stripes are a bit wonky, but I love it still!
This will be super helpful, since my bathroom only has underneath the tiny sink for storage space, and all my hair products and makeup are always getting knocked into the sink bowl.

Thanks for the plushie comments everybody -- my son actually sketched the (very cheery!) face ... He's going to give it as a gift.

I want that striped shelf for my (gray and black) bathroom! So cool.

The scarf is pretty awesome, but I'd better NOT have one of those. Too clumsy. I'd probably step on the end of it and choke myself!  :D

Hey, indigo_roses, what charity is collecting the granny squares? Sounds like an interesting project!

It was relatively quick to crochet (and I was stuck in bed yesterday with a kidney infection  :-[) but I finally have my first project done!

Also, although I don't post much, I am loving looking at the amazing projects everyone posts! And all the Doctor Who goodies are inspiring me to work on my own WIP scarf.  :D

Oh, I would like to know too.  I have some granny squares that I made last year.  I had wanted to make a blanket with them, but Im tired of granny squares.  Making them always bored me, and I just have no interest in making more or sewing them together.  I wonder though- do they have to be a certain size in order to be accepted?

I've not been too good the past few days - I call it a 'brain fart' cos it just doesn't want to work at all and I struggle to do even the simplest of things (like getting up in the morning or remembering what I'm supposed to be doing next) so going to 2 new classes today was a real struggle, but helped by knowing the venue I was going to and also knowing the tutor (same one for both).

The first one was felt making - I made a flower but haven't taken pictures yet.

The second one was ceramics and having had bus issues (missing one, next one being 15 minutes late, grrrr) I was short of time, but still managed to make this:



I didn't put wings on as wasn't sure about shape, security of them and I wasn't confident I could do them properly, and obviously it needs firing and glazing, but couldn't wait to share :)

Congrats missmoppet!

To those who were asking about the squares for charity, they will be going to the Pine Ridge Reservation. It's a Native American Reservation that's the poorest spot in the US, is super cold, with 90% unemployment and all the stuff that goes along with that. I'm a member of this group on Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com/groups/afghan-squares-for-pine-ridge-reservation) where we all send the squares we make to a great lady named Pam who seams them into blankets and then sends them on to the reservation. If you aren't on Ravelry, there is also a "sister" group on Yahoo. (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/loveafghans4prr/)

Tonight my crafting plans include making a couple more squares, spinning some yarn (hopefully to make myself a hat with!), and making progress on a pair of fingerless gloves that I need by Saturday afternoon (I'm about 65% complete).

Yeah, I kept seeing others post yudu items.  Well, this past xmas I seen one 50% off with free ship, and since the inlaws all gave gift cards I thought it was a perfect chance to buy one.  They are so fun.  :)  If you want to try stenciling, you could try using freezer paper.  See if you like it, then keep an eye out for yudu sales.

ha ha I know...I was just teasing the group to see who was awake and paying attention! ;)

I will PM you.  In the meantime, the rest of you be sure to post a project to be entered into the random drawing at the end of the month!

tinybits--I just love all of the yarn projects you are doing!  That color combination is very nice--not so "babyish"...

I will need to check out that yudu--I want to stencil so many things but just can't seem to get on board with all the cutting of the freezer paper!

congrats miss moppet!

I almost have the binding done on an older WIP quilt for this challenge (and on the quilt along), but I ran out of white thread last night, so I'll have to stop on my way home tonight and pick some up.  Also while putting on the binding I saw some places I want to add more quilting.  It's my first attempt and neatly machine binding as well

Craftica--welcome!  Anyone can join at anytime during the year...making 50 projects is not mandatory...it is just a goal someone set years ago! :D

You can always find your list to add to and keep a record of your progress by going to page 1 and also, you can add it to your signature.  But, please, post your pictures through out the thread so we can all see...I m probably the only one who goes to the lists to drool over the projects! ;)

It will be nearly impossible to comment on the thousands of projects, but let's be kind and encouraging to each other and comment when we can, especially to our newcomers! :D

Hope everyone has a crafty weekend...I will catch up all the eligible projects and hopefully, finish the prizes for 2012!!

Stickerchic87--- I like the colors of your dish scrubby. Does it clean like a sponge? Can you make a body scrubby to?

goktrose--- The strippes seem OK to me.  The old looking shelf really looks much more modern now.

I had no idea the zudu existed and I was fine, but now that I know about it...

I finally finshed my first project of the year. It's been collecting dust since Christmas. A plain boring scarf that will be donated to charity later this year.

I love that Star Wars art! So much so that I immediately pinned it. And all three of my kids crowded up to my monitor to see - it's kid approved!

I have severe craft ADD at the moment. I started a scarf that I didn't like, so 4 motifs in I made it into a fingerless mitt. And I've finished the 4 motifs for the matching mitt, but not done the back of it. But I also have a head for a PSY ami (as in Oppa Gangnam Style), half a bat dishcloth, and four tiny random paper notebooks, which have been bound "glue spine" style, (like a paperback, not sewn like a hardback) but that don't have covers on them. All this has been started since the start of the year.

Perhaps my subconcious has taken this month's challenge the wrong way, and is creating WIPs, instead of finishing them. I sit done to craft, and just aren't in the mood to work on anything that's going, because I keep finding all these cool other things to make, which I'd much rather be working on, so I start one of them... and then repeat.

I need to do some projects that I can finish in one sitting, then at least I'll have something to share in thread.

I know how you feel, SilverMoon! I'm doing rather well tonight though, I managed to finish 2 WIPs! The fact that the recipient of one of them is coming over tomorrow didn't influence this at all, or the WIP that I'll finish tomorrow that's coming over on Sunday...  ::) I work best with deadlines!

Anyway, here are my two FO's from tonight (both started in 2012!)
     ---> and their thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419237.0)

This one just needed the ends woven in
(https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=569941)

These had about half of one glove left

Now back to spinning for me!

Whew, took a little time to get this uploaded but I made an etched glass with a quote from my favorite movie A Clockwork Orange. It says "Viddy well little brother, viddy well" but it's hard to photograph etchings

Thanks for all the compliements on the starwars painting everyone!  It was really fun to do and perfect for our kiddo.  I will admit though-as much of a geek as I am, I have never liked Starwars. ::)

SilverMoon, I totally can relate to starting a project, then seeing another thing i want to make and start on it, then see another project and start making it.  And bamm!  10 projects started and none finished.  This year-Im really trying to start a project(okay, maybe two projects) and not start any more projects until those are finished.  I seriously think its ADD at times as I have been known to have so many WIPS.  I just could not focus on one project.  I blame Craftster, theres just so many awesome crafty things to make here!  Now, theres Pinterest.....Oh mercy!  This year though-this 50 projects in 2013 is really helping me stay focused on a project.  Course, we wont count the fingerless mitts for my sister....I started one, then started on the second....ah, i accidently was doing another left glove, ripped it out, knit it to the end, the thumb gusset was in the wrong spot, ripped it out, redid it, then finished and realized i must of skipped a cable because its one cable shorter then the left!  ARG!  The instructions for the right glove werent very good-it said repeat as with the left, and it just wouldnt work because the cables have to be on top of each glove!  So, yeah, thats one wip that im setting aside.

SilverMoon I can totally relate to your situation. I have serious ADD tendencies and internet is a great distraction. This year I realized I function better if I watch favorite shows while crafting. I knit away or work on my art journal or do whatever I have at the moment while I am watching episode after episode of Vampire Diaries,  Parenthood or Elementary. That might work for you too.

Check my list and you'll see that many of my projects are actually wips from previous years. I think many of us fall in love with the creativity, colors, techniques, etc. of a project and start so many projects because we want to try them. At least I think that's why I get sidetracked so often. Maybe we need a blog about how to finish our projects rather than tutorials about new projects. :D

Suggestions for completing wips (very tongue-in-cheek):
1 - Give them to someone else to finish
2 - Turn them into dust rags
3 - Turn them into doorstops
4 - If they're biodegradable, use as garden mulch
5 - Let the dog have them as a toy

Some pics of the completed projects to date (sorry for the poor quality, they were taken on my phone).

Wrist warmers - http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8395787826/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8395787826/)

I'm really pleased with these as it is the first crochet project I've actually finished however they have stretched and are now quite loose, I may try and re-make perhaps using a tighter stitch.

Beaded bangle - http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8395783410/in/photostream/ (http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/8395783410/in/photostream/)

This was a pattern in the latest bead & button magazine and I love it, really simple too, I want to make loads in every colour combo!

Oh my baby blankie is coming along nice! The colors was leftover from another project last year so I wasn't sure how'd they behave together but I really love it.



I have left a small amount from each ball so I plan to make this blanket (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flowers-in-the-snow) when I am done :D Or I might make this pillow (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/patchwork-cushion-2) :D Or both :D Can't decide  ???

I finally have something I can post!!!!  Of course, none of it is on my list, but thats because these are from a swap.  Most of you know I'm really a crocheter, but I wanted to do something different so I gave painting a go.  I've seen these heart ponies from My Little Pony all over and they're so cute, but I wanted one made of Spike, so I came up with this.


I LOVE how it came out!!! He was so hard to let go.  I can see some little mistakes all over it, but I tried my best.

I also made her 2 MLP amis, one Big McIntosh


and one Pinkie Pie, would you believe her hair is yarn???  It took me forever to do.  First I attached the yarn with the latch hook method, then I brushed it all out with a wire brush, then ironed it.  I totally meant to take a pic of that but forgot.  It actually looked like actual MLP hair!!!!  Then I used white glue and twisted it all up to look like curls.  I love how it came out!

mama24boyz - Love the MLPs and Spike! Super cute!

tinybits - such a cool baby blanket - love the colors!

Silvermoon - definitely feeling your pain here. Still haven't really finished anything and am planning to start another project today because, well... shiny!  ;D

I am counting the projects I am building for craft organizing so here are my paint holders made from wire grids from shelving units (I have tons but can never find connectors so this is a good use)


Next I will be making this 12x12" paper storage rack, maybe 2, with the grids and zip ties

I love the Spike painting too. He was my favourite character out of the old 80s movie, well, second favourite, because I loved the Smooze the best. I know that you aren't supposed to cheer for the bad guy, but he/it had the best song in the whole movie. Danny DeVito as the King of Grundles was pretty awesome too though.

Miss Seven has inherited my love for MLP, and my old collection, but we don't do FIM in this house. I don't believe in reboots. Ponies shouldn't have anime eyes. But she does have a few of the new ones from before they went manga.

Yup, I'm a hard ass. Master Eight isn't allowed to watch Voltron Force either. Quite happy to get him the original though.

I got 2 and a half of the mini books I was working on finished, just waiting on glue to dry.

I know right!  I hate how they remade the my little ponies from the 80s.  Sheesh!  And the redid the GI Joes too!  Arg!  Luckly our kiddo is into the classics.  He loves all the 80s cartoons and the 90s.  But if its a remake hes always "Geesh!  What the deal with cartoons now days?!  And the Bratz cartoon?!  Why on earth would parents let their girls play with toys and watch a cartoon called Bratz?  What kind of message is that sending to them?"  Yup, my thoughts exactly kiddo. 

Anyways, craftwise, my brother in law found out hes having a boy-so Im making boy items for him.  Hes a hunter too.  So Im making a amigurumi deer now.  And I plan to make some John Deer bibs too.

Loving the paint rack - I have to be honest and say I'm a little addicted to this stream, it's my 7.am private moment haha. So last week I managed to buy a whole carrier bag full of vintage lace doilies - at the bargain price of 50p. I have decided I'm going to combine them with sewing and knitting and make myself a funky little top - will let you All know when I'm done !

Anyhooooo - who's working on what today ?

My partner just received, so I can finally post my first painting ever!! (or 6th... I started it first, did 5 altered playing card paintings, then finished it).



It's called "After Winter, Spring" and in totally finished form: it's a flag for the flag swap.

This looks great!  How did you get the two grids to stay apart?  Are there supports to hold them and if so, how far apart are they? :D

This is the link to my inspiration but instead of spools or PVC I used 4 inch long Lincoln style logs with notches that I wired the grids to...they are about 2 inches apart.

Here is a pic of my first attempt to hang them, I learned it takes 2 cupboard hooks in the center and a little ribbon to hold the bottom piece close to the wall and the top piece slightly higher up so the paints don't slip.

That paint organizer is awesome. I need one of those to organize my yarn.

I started an infinity scarf, but I don't have enough yarn. My husband was at walmart last night, and apparently he tried to call me to ask me what dye lot I needed.  I had fallen asleep. Oopps, lol this morning I had 21 missed calls.

Wow - I look away for a few days and look how many posts there are  :o

I love how different everyone's lists are. And all the finished pieces are really inspiring.

I have been working away on my Crocheted baby blanket:


Not bad if I say so myself, given it's only the third thing I have ever crocheted.  ;)

I also have started and half completed a new project. I have added a 'Super Secret Surprise' project for my Big Sisters birthday. I'm so excited by this one -  had the idea yesterday morning, got the supplies at lunchtime and have almost finished it by the evening. It just needs about a week to dry and then be painted. Sorry but I cant give anymore details right now but as soon as I can I will, I promise  ;D

Oh and Hello to all the other UK Craftsters - I'm in Scotland so a meet-up is defiantly out of the question!!

Welcome sheldini! Love your list - may be borrowing some of your ideas! Do you by any chance have a picture for your inspiration for the shrink plastic sandwich bracelet? It sounds fascinating!

DawnsTrees - the inspiration for the bracelet came from this http://www.etsy.com/listing/62024243/bright-white-bird-silhouette-bracelet? (http://www.etsy.com/listing/62024243/bright-white-bird-silhouette-bracelet?) which is feautured in "Shrink, shrank, shrunk" by Kathy Sheldon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shrink-Shrank-Shrunk-Kathy-Sheldon/dp/1454703490/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358700441&sr=8-1 (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shrink-Shrank-Shrunk-Kathy-Sheldon/dp/1454703490/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1358700441&sr=8-1)) - I'm thinking of doubling up 2 pieces with a pretty fabric in the middle to show through the cut out.....still very much an idea in my head at this stage though!!!

Not bad if I say so myself, given it's only the third thing I have ever crocheted.  ;)

Not bad??? - It's blumin marvelous  ;D

To the fellow Brits - I am in Berkshire (I think someone mentioned Bristol but I couldn't find the post again  ::) - if so I'm not too far away  :) )

Here are the dresses I made for my nieces 4th birthday.  The theme was Cars Princess. I bought the pink shirts that had sequined bows on them and added a car button to the centre of the bow.  Then I added a circle skirt with pink knit binding. They loved them and man did they look great when they twirled.

I'd love to join this year -- I joined a few years ago and never stuck to my plan  :-\  Hopefully I can at least get 50 items done this year though.

WIPs
scrapbook -- I am at least a decade behind now, plan is to get up-to-date by the end of the year.

Card-making:
All-occasion cards always handy to have around -- also make envelopes to go with them.
Christmas cards -- I always start these in July but maybe will start earlier this year since it was a scramble to get done this year

Jewelry-making -- gifts
earrings
necklaces
bracelets

Sewing
dress for me -- I haven't made a dress for me since I started having kids almost 17 years ago
skirts for my girls and probably one or two for me

Knitting
hats
scarves

Crocheting
hat
scarves

These are all things I do anyways throughout the year... will be adding items as the year goes on!

This one is finished  ;D

It's for a swap, so I can't share it yet.  :'(

4/5 mini books bound - 2 of which need more glue. Bcak to this dishcloth I think. It's dragging so slowly because the pattern is iffy and I have to fudge it along as I go. :'(

Heh - I didn't touch the dishcloth.  :P

Finished the binding on the last book, and fixed the glue on the other two that needed fixing - still no pictures because they are covered in pegs.

In an effort to avoid the dishcloth, I finally finished the gloves I started a week ago. I'm glad I made them for markets and not for me, because I'm sorely sick of the sight of them now!  ;D

I do letterboxing, so I like to carve stamps. Some get put in the letterboxes and some travel from letterbox to letterbox. Some of the less detailed ones are the size of a thumbnail. Here are the six I have done so far in 2013. The Mickey is my Signature Stamp that I log in to the logbooks in the letterboxes with and the "AlishaMisha 2013" is not for letterboxing, but I will explain that later. You will see the same Mickey in the next stamps. That is because mine got damaged, so this one is the recarve.


I am also a geocacher and have several signature items that I put into caches that people collect. One of the popular sig items that people have and collect are Wooden Nickels. Most geocachers purchase them and have standard pictures or text put on. Nothing wrong with that, but I like mine to be unique and, well, me...oh yeah, and cost effective. Thankfully my logo for geocaching is also that particular Mickey I use  for letterboxing, so I use my sig stamp and then I carved a new stamp, "AlishaMisha 2013" just for these nickels. I made about 26 of these this time around, because I ran out of wood blanks and I need to pick up another black ink pad.


All of the following are 2012 stamps. I am posting them here instead since this thread gets more traffic now...






Another 2012 project, Mini Crochet Thread Flower Pins.


And yet more 2012 projects...Another geocaching signature item I have are Mickey Marble Magnets that I sign on the back. So here is an example of a few of those (I made about 300), an example of some other marble magnets I made at the same time, and an example of the Lotion Bars I made for Xmas. The Lotion Bars are equal parts (by weight) of Beeswax, Coco Butter, and Sweet Almond Oil.


More pics of previously unpictured 2012 projects to come once I finish taking pics of the ones I am able to.

So, alishamisha do you actually carve the stamps on the wooden nickles then?  I find that the stamps carved on erasers are damaged to easly.  The dog might get a hold of it, or the kiddo and hubby might pick at it.  Hmmm....I really like the little mickey mouse stamp-so cute.  You need to make a Pug stamp from a wooden nickle, then send it to me so i can test it out.  ;)

Silvermoon--those red mitts are beautiful!  I love the length!

AlishaMisha---wow--that is a boatload of stamps!  I love the little hedgehog one!

I finished the fairy mitts I was making for Aislynn...I made them out of a heavier wool at first, but she lives in a warm climate! duh!  So I used a lightweight fingering yarn instead...

alishamisha: Those stamps are amazing, I love the little hedgehog one and your mickey one!

Here in Wisconsin it is absolutely freezing (-20 degrees F with windchill!), so today I may get some crafting done since it is actually dangerous to my life to be outside for more than 15 minutes! I have created 3 more WIPs and need to finish at least one before school starts back up tomorrow.

Piggy-backing on this, but those are awesome stamps Alisha Misha. What is 'letter boxing'?

Love the lacy mitts Silvermoon.

AIMR, oooh, such pretty mitts. Would you mind telling us what the yarn is?

The yarn is Chroma fingering yarn in colorway Impressionist.  I like it way better than Noro because it is very soft...and way less $!  It is sold at www.knitpicks.com...the pattern for the mitts is from Noro Crochet...seriously, if you crochet, each mitt took about 1/2 hour! :D

That is positively TOASTY Goktrose, it's -30F here this evening  :o perfect for working on crochet blankets or a good excuse for huddling under one at least!

Always, you know that they say "Never say never"  :) Hubby asked me to knit him another pair of socks yesterday but I daren't start them until I've finished his vest  ::)

Always - those mitts are gorgeous! I love the color shift!

I still need to post something for this month's challenge. I think I need to refresh on what qualifies again. In any case I finally was able to post the awesome Weeping Angel painting I made a friend for Christmas as I just gave it to her today! This is my first attempt of actually painting something with shadow and light so I'm really happy with how it came out  ;D

I was playing around with my Eventually Granny Square patt... well, not really a pattern, more of a technique, I guess... anyhow, I came up with a new layout that I thought might be kind of funky.  I graphed it out, chose some colours I normally wouldn't choose and off I went.

Turns out, I don't know how to follow my own patterns (not really news here...) and I accidentally made everything a quarter size.  I didn't discover the problem until I was halfway done, though (at a moment we'll describe as, "That doesn't look like it's 3' wide... *measures* ah... 22"...")

So I slapped a border on it... after four rounds, I got bored with the whole thing and decided that this 3x4' blanket was, in fact, always supposed to be a preemie blanket.



It's the Math Fail blanket!  Oh, and I intensely dislike the colours, too. :P

'Mio - I personally don't like the colours either, but they are just perfect for a preemie (or dolly) blanket. And layout is way awesome.

shepBlue, as always, love your work! I'd love to get something like that for my sister, but she'd hate me forever - she's 42 and deeply afraid of statues now. Thanks Moffat.

AIMR, those mitts are lovely. I love the chroma yarns, they are much smoother colours than the Bernat mosaic, sadly they aren't machine washable. But the skeins are so soft and smooshy!

Love the wristwarmers Always and Silvernoon.

Fantasticmio - that blanket is fun. It would be cool in primary colors too as a kiddo blanket.

Fabulous as always blue sheep

Eventhough my husband did his best to get me more yarn he never got it. I really wish I never fell asleep If I would have just stayed awake for a half an hour longer, I could of been finishing my infinity scarf right now. Boo

I think that I need a better hat. Today was -43 F with the windchill in mn. I could feel the wind blowing through my hat. Brrr I think that I might have some chunky yarn to make a hat with.

Brrrr!  You all need to stop talking about that cold weather!  Your freezing me out as I have always hated the cold, snow and ice.  Thankfully we moved to a warmer state-so this year-no snow or ice.  Oh man, I am so glad!  I remember being out of power from ice storms, trapped in the house from snow, roads to dangerous to drive on and freezing to the bone. 

Sheepblue, I need to make something too for the contest.  I have a habit of making gifts for everyone except myself.  So, I need to make something for myself.  Im thinking a nice comfy pair of slippers.  I did make 2 bibs today though.  For an inlaw whos baby is due this year.

Hah I went to see what was eligible and realized I already qualified lol. I had some bags in progress last year that I just finished after the new year. But I still might try to make something for myself just for fun.

Thanks for all the Weeping Angel love! I'm so proud of how it came out  ;D

Wow, there have been some really great projects.

Always, I love those mitts. I've been eyeing the chroma yarn. I decided I just want to have balls of it to decorate a shelf because it is so pretty.

sheepBlue, great painting. I've been meaning to do a Weeping Angel project. Well someday I'll get to it.

So many great projects! I'm loving all the mittens and scarves. Of course I'm cold right now and itching to knit so that might be why they're particularly keen to me :) AlishaMisha - I had never heard of letterboxing. Geocaching yes, but not letterboxing. I looked it up and am now intrigued! Thanks for that info!

 ;D I finished a project! ;D (We need a happy dance smilie)

I've been crazy busy with school (the one I work at) and school (another semester started and I'm taking a full load again), and getting my stash and craft room organized and cleaned. In the effort to organize I made some pencil holders.

I started with these tins that I got at Christmas. No we didn't drink all this hot chocolate, but I did buy them thinking they'd be great to alter for holding stuff  ;) The cookies were a present. Delicious, but I was more excited about the tin when I unwrapped it! :D


Some polished hemp (aka twine found in craft dept. at Walmart) was added via a hot glue gun. Sorry this pic is blurry but one of the kids took it since my hands were occupied. A word of warning: after enough skin on your finger tips has been removed by hot glue, it will eventually start to hurt. No blisters, but I'm feeling it when I type.


3 hours later... geez it took longer than I thought it would, but it really is worth it don't you think?

Those twine-covered tins look great, llisaredd! And I feel your pain -- even my low-temp hot glue is still finger-stinging HOT.

Also got to (belatedly) mention my LOVE of J_Kieviet's twirly skirt, that1girl's green mittens, kittykill's Valentine garland, and alwaysinmyroom's fairy mitts.

AlishaMisha, your stamps are so fun and cool! My favorites are the yarn ball, the leaf, the quill pen, and the skunk. And of course that antique-style Mickey. The mini crochet thread flowers are also cute.

I finished a project for the shoe box challenge, but not sure if it's okay to post it here, before it's time to submit it there...(?)

Love all the projects! Those tins are great!!

I am finally able to post some pictures!!

I made my first multimedia piece - it took me a lot longer than I expected, but I am pleased with how it turned out!
In the 2012 craft-a-long I posted some painted papers that I made: (https://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=566138)
I used them (plus one or two more) and made this:

The quote is: "And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair" ~Kahlil Gilbran

Here is a closer view of the flowers


I finally etched! (I posted about it and the disaster I had while trying it  here (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=419359.0)).





Some bookmarks made with random repurposed jewelry:


These are going to go to a little girl who loves hair goodies - the bead one was made in 2012 (It frustrated me at the time so I don't think I ever counted it  ::) ). I painted the bobby pins with nail polish. The three flowers in the back are not completed and will be used in a different project. I think I will also make a ribbon hanger for these, but we will see if I have the time.


I finally finished the angel necklace for my mother-in-law! The little angel with the purple bead has a loose jump-ring placed over the bead head so it looks like it has a loose halo. I think it is my favorite part (which no one will ever see without it being pointed out!)


and a snowman necklace for my sister-in-law (small photo since it isn't very exciting)

Yes, sheepblue--I entered you into the challenge because I knew those bags were WIPS from 2012! ;)

Mio--you come up with the most interesting crochet patterns and colors, even if they are "fails"!

llisaredd--Love your twine tins!  Perfect way to have those pencils and markers ready to go!

dawnstrees--your paper from last year with the flowers is just beautiful!!  I also love your etchings...

And, just FYI, Missmoppet chose to receive a couple of ravelry knitting patterns as her random drawing prize!  Such cute patterns, that I hope to see posted here! :D


Here is the prayer flag I made for a swap--mixed stuff--inks, canvas, batik, thread, stone button, twig, etc.:

no actual finished object yet but the blanket i am knitting is about to finish. i already started another one with the left over yarn...

BUT I cut the length of my hair and cut bangs. this is something i'd never dare before. it turned nice (thank god!), i also sat down and hennaed my hair as my white hair was showing disgustingly (bad genes :( ) i don't know if this counts as a project but here it goes:

Oh yes, for my prize in this swap I recieved two awesome ravelry patterns.  I am super excited to get to making them.  And post them in this thread too.  Thank you kindly alwaysinmyroom! 
The patterns are on Ravely and so lovely!  1-Arachnid. by Karen Fournier and 2-The Failynn Fox Cowl by the velvet acorn


Also, I love that prayer flag alwaysinmyroom.  I actually had no clue what one was and now seeing it, its so pretty.


Okay, I now have a project to add to the contest.  I actually did it earlier this year and totally forgot about it.  But it definanlty counts.  Its a project for myself yet, its also a way to store/display tiny little yarn balls of random yarn.  I took our old gumball machine, made tiny yarn balls out of scrap yarn and ta-da!  Scrap yarn storage for the home and a craft project for me.  Well, for the house but, you get the idea.

j_kieviet--does your garment actually have a hood?  It looks very comfy!

Isn't that fox hood cutest?  ha ha The only problem is that if I go to Ravelry or Urban Threads, I could spend hours looking at patterns! :D

Question to all you lovely ladies. I'm going to sit at home and make some ATC's to or row. Now in all seriousness I had never heard of them before but luuuurrrve the idea. So just to ask, does one generally pop one in every swap or just the atc swaps ?

I think its dependent on what your swap partner likes.  Some don't collect ATCs.  I really haven't received ATCs in normal swaps, just usually the ATC swap.

I really like the ongoing ATC swaps because you can make as many as you can claim..it can be one or many in one month...whatever your mood is...not everyone collects them--there are so many interesting themes so something is bound to inspire you!  Jillybeans usually runs that swap and is a champion ATC maker! :D

Thanks always!  Yay for ATC promotion!  Usually gozer is my ATC promoter!  lol!  I like the Ongoing ATC Swap because you can join at any point in the month, and as always said, you can make as many or as few claims as you want!  Some months I get super ambitious, and some months I only do a few.  I will probably get signups for February's swap up next week.

Or if you don't want to join the swap, there are lots of ATC makers who are up for personal swaps.  It will usually say so on their profile.

OMG - this thread spawns like nobodies business :D I wasn't around this morning to look and since last night theres like 6 pages or so of stuff to go through.

Loving everything so far - how wonderful that with so many projects, so many techniques and methods and materials being used, that I don't think I've seen a single thing I gone 'don't like that' to!

Keep it up girls - seeing all your wonderful creations helps me when my brain 'farts' (as in depression kicks up/in/off) and I can't create myself :)

That is a beautiful pattern...in the 50 dishcloths, I learned a lot of new stitches by making dishcloths...that is a great idea!  What is this stitch?

Not sure what the stitch is, but the pattern is here (http://www.crochetnmore.com/dishcloth.htm).

I want a yarn ball gum machine! So cool.

So I guess I'll go ahead and post my shoe box project here, and hope it still qualifies for the Craftster Challenge as well. I made a jewelry box out of a shoe box and old games!


This is the bottom of it.


Inside, there are trays for jewelry.




Whee! I'm so excited about how this project turned out!

What a wonderful use of a shoebox!  I love how colorful it is and that you used game pieces to decorate and make pulls!

Something cute and functional--a perfect project!

underthemountain--I bet Lana and her friends love their scarves...the cloud one is so cute!

underthemountain-those scarves are cute.  I clicked on the link and seen the others you made too.  Adoreable!  I find that I really enjoy making scarves.  They are functional and really fun to make in my opinion. 


I am impressed with everyones crafty projects.  There is such a wide variety from gloves, to game boxes to journals.  Its fun to see everyones projects.  We are indeed a crafty group we are! ;D

I made some baby bibs earlier this week.  They are for an inlaw.

thanks for the kind comments all and thanks Missmoppet for clicking on the link.  :)  I was really proud of them because I hardly ever design anything anymore.  Now I am revved up to try to make more stuff.  :)

MM, love your bibs!  great theme!!

J_Kieviet, can't wait to see more dresses, the others were soo cute!

Sweater mitts. Not so happy with these. At least I tried though, right? Anyone have any tips on working with sweater material?

When I've sewn these in the past, I had to use a zig-zag stitch (or stretch stitch on some machines) It also helps to loosen the thread tension sometimes too.

So much cute stuff!

I love the weeping angel painting and all the crochet goodies make me wish I could crochet better...

Speaking of which, I am still working on crocheting together all my granny squares. It's taking a ridiculous amount of time. *Sigh* If I get it finished though, it could be a challenge entry. :)

tinybits, I love the pendant. I've always wanted to try lost wax carving. I didn't take the class when I had a chance. Now no one is offering it.

I did some more stashbusting. I used up 2 misc. leftover balls of cotton yarn from other dishcloths.

Only two projects done lately...

Project 9 - A bag for my Zombie Bellydance costume.  Eventually, I'd like to make bags for all my outfits so I can easily find them in the explosion of stuff that is that closet.  I do have some of them in bags, but I have to open them to see what costume it is.  Not with this one!



Project 10 - A Crocheted Dalek for a friend.  I started with
this pattern (sorry, I tried to link the original page but something is down) (http://www.sliceofscifi.com/2008/12/04/crochet-your-own-dalek/) sent to me by a friend who asked if I could make it.  I did... sort of.  Partway through I realized I had (as usual) messed up something and mine was way too big and flared and...  You can't really tell in the pictures, but I added some plastic canvas to the sides to make it less round and put some beads on the head.



I want a gumball machine full of yarn!  Only, it has to magically refill itself...  :D

Is it this? http://www.kamsnaps.com/How-to-Make-a-Mega-Baby-Bib-64.html
I was intrigued...I think my little nephew could use one so if this isn't the one you were thinking of please let me know.

Thanks for all the compliements.  I was raised on a farm-so, john deer is just farm equiptment to me.  You know, we depend on it to do farm work.  My inlaws where raised in the city so, they really love john deer as a themed things a theme for decoration purposes.  I have to admit it has always cracks me up-city folk loving farm themes to decorate.  :D

The yarnball machine, i seen the idea online and knew i had to do it.  I loved our gumball machine, but candy in it-well, just sorta gets sticky and attracts creepy crawlies.  So yarn balls was a great substitute for candy.  Its a super way to display tiny yarn balls.

Know what you mean. We live in town, but my in-laws all live in the country. Many country kids grow up riding on John Deere or International Harvester tractors, driving 4-wheelers, riding horses, and hunting and fishing on their own land. I think a lot of town/city people have a romanticized view of farm/ranch life and just want to remember what they think are/were the "Simpler, Good Old Times". Just wait until I post the hunting/fishing burp cloths and bibs I'm making for some of my family! ;D

I was too, and John Deere was/is the only brand of tractors my dad uses. I married into a city family, so some of my kids have John Deere things as a nod to my dad and his profession. My sister married another farmer (majorly loves all things farm-getting a degree in bio-agriculture). So I'm going to be giving her baby a John Deere blanket (working on it right now) because her husband loves farm things so much.

I'm 3/4 done 2 dresses, 1/2 done the third.  tomorrow I hope to finish all 3 and get my craft room tidied up for a Friday sewing session with the girls.


I also got an apron finished.

I also added on a recycled plastic apron to the list, because that's what I was doing with the Guides this week. Here's my apron:

I made a brain slug yesterday.  Ha ha ha.  I told the kiddo what i was making and he was just like "uh, okay."  Well, now thats i finished making it hes like "You made that for me, right?" :D




And I made a slouch hat too.  This will be stashed for a craft show.  Unless I see someone who likes it, then it will be a random gift.

Smeddley--I understand about storing stuff in bags and having to open them...geat idea to put the name like that on the outside identifying it!  I also think your Dalek looks great!  What yarn and color did you use?  I want to make a crochet Dalek hat that I saw but the colors in my stash do not look right...too dark...

PaperBeau--what a good idea for those plastic tabelcloths!  I have a few that should be thrown out but parts are still good...can you tell me about those seams?  You are the second person mentioning fused plastic seams...

underthemountain--yes!!!!!!!  That is the tutorial---I remember because the baby was named Roman!!  She makes the cutest things for her boy!  Thanks so much!

carolmb--your daughter looks very lovely in her costume!

We used to have a John Deere craftalong but it fizzled out...I have a John Deere tractor for mowing and hauling  and have very fond memories of all it represents...do they still make fleece fabric in that print?  I would love to have a throw made of it.

Always so glad you mentioned that huge bib.  I told my mom and she thinks that my nephew will definitely need one.  His big sis sure could have used one.  She was a very enthusiastic eater.

I need to make a brain slug!! Can someone send me to the pattern?  I think I could figure it out, but it would most likely end up whopperjawed. I know my little K would LOVE one for her birthday.  :D

Everyone is so talented. I may need to look into joining a prayer flag swap, I came across them while stalking a swap partner and they look so neat.

I finally finished my first project for the year that isn't swap related! It's a scarf for my littlest kumquat, but now that it's done, she wants to give it to her swap partner in the Kid's Valentines Swap... so it started out as a non-swap item, but it looks like it's going to be swapped.   ;)  I learned how to do ribbing in crochet for it, and I know it will be loved no matter what.

Well, it seems  like I've been more productive than I have projects to show for. How does that happen?  ???

I would like to show an apron I made for myself. Some of you may recognize the pattern from last year. I really love the shape of it and it covers me well.



I've made two of these, but the other one is for Christmas 2013. The only way I know to keep ahead of my crafting for the holidays.  :D

And two pair of fleece socks for my son. He loves yellow and has sensitivity issues with his socks. In other words, he can not abide seams at the toes and will only wear hand knit ones. If he does not have hand knit socks, he will go without even in below freezing weather.



He loves these and wears them all the time. I intend to get more fleece next week to make a couple more pair. It is so awesome that I have found a solution to his needs without me taking a month to make one pair of socks for him. I made two pair in one afternoon.

And a pair of fingerless mitts from scraps. No knit or crochet ones for him until he is maybe 36? He is just so rough on them.

There are so many more patterns for them though.  If your a member of Ravelry you can search there and they have a ton both knit and crochet.

My daughter is the same way! I haven't learned to make socks in crochet yet, but I never thought of making them from fleece!  You may have saved my sanity regarding the morning sock fights Ms. rottenlittleboys!!

I will have to refresh my ravelry account, I haven't been on in forever...

Everyone here has been sick, so poor little Lola had to go without a Birthday party. But I did make her some puppy cupcakes.  :)







I also decided that next year for Christmas I want to get a white tree and decorate it entirely in Adventure Time ornaments. My list of characters to make is at 75 right now! Here are my first 4.

Gorgeous everyone! Love love love skimming through the photos on this thread.

Of course I can tell you more about fusing plastic, although I have to say this sweety on you-tube has the best explaination for the basic method I've seen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_szf1ioNy8
You can use any thickness bags, just experiment before you go onto your final thing!

Also, here is the painting I did for my sister's birthday:

I really like that jacket, but had to google Mad Mod to see what it actually was.  Ah, not having cable channels has left me out of the loop!  Okay, thats two things that I had to google and have someone explain to me.  Dr Who and Mad Mod.  Oh me, point me in the direction of the information station!  ha ha.  Really though, I learn so much besides crafts from this website.   :D

I have not done any crafting today.  I did start making a amigurumi armadillo yesterday though.  Who ever said armadillos where ugly creatures have never seen an amigurumi one!  When I finish I have to show him in all his cuteness.  He is adoreable!  and he doesnt even have legs, eyes or a tail yet.   ;D ha ha.

I don't know what Mad Mod is either( but I do know Dr. Who, especially the eleventh doctor) but I liked the costumes anyway.
An amigurumi armadillo? It must be so cute!

I emptied the old cushions. I put some foam in the back and a bed pillow in front of it and added some padding around the edges. Since the cushions where to upright, i added a band of foam at the bottom back. It is much more comfortable than before, although not as comfortable as a recliner.

Well done for making a full list someonete.

At work, I often pick up on people's spelling, but I only noticed one misspelling  ;D

In the UK, mashine is spelt machine. I think your spelling is great for a non native speaker.
I might steal some of your list too...

Made this amazing no knead bread in an angel food cake pan, it was so good but don't do what I did and forget the salt...lol it was noticeable but still good, it would be amazing to sprinkle dry parmesan cheese into it when you beat it down for the second rise.

Welcome Grab a Coffee!  Craftster is a greatl online community.  Lots of positive chit chat and craft sharing.  With so much corrupt in the world and on the web, I find that Craftster really is a wonderful place online to relax, enjoy a positive atmosphere and get tons of crafty ideas and advice.  And by the way I love the felt bag for your mother’s mobile.  I think the grey really makes the flower designs really stand out.  Looks so pretty.

P_E_S_T--- These romantic jar cuffs are perfect with Valentine's day coming soon.

michelleandbean--- Littlebean won't have any excuses for being dirty with all these colorful wash clothes.

that1girl-thats a lot of lovely crochet items.  I really like the blue knit hat you make yourself too.

I made a minion hat yesterday.  And started on an ear flap hat today.  Will post photos after I finish the earflap hat.

Love the heart barrettes that one girl.

Who made the orange and read wash clothes? Those colors are great together.

lydiaharper, pretty granny squares. The yarn colorway works great with that pattern and how you have them staggered with other colors.

alteredmommy-that scarf is pretty, the colors are so beautiful together.  

trinalocakary-love the anti-valentine card idea!  I do not like that holiday.  So many expensive jewelry commercials and expensive flowers commercials.  Mercy, what about a nice box of candy?  Or a nice shirt thats isnt so pricey?  And what about the men, if so many commericials tell them to buy expensive things for women, shouldnt there be commericals telling women to buy men expensive things too for valentines day?  Sheesh.  

 lydiaharper-very nice granny squares.  They look great.  When i  learned to crochet, i started with making amigurumi.  So when i learned to do granny squares I was so confused, it took me awhile to learn to do a granny square.  What do you plan to make with yours?  A blanket?  A purse?  I seen the cutest slippers made from granny squares.  A craftster told me the pattern was on purlbee.  So, i eventually want to make some.

Great projects so far everyone! This thread sure seems to be helping me stay productive, which I will need as my semester gets into the swing of things!
I finished a few more projects in the last week, so here are my pictures!
This little amigurumi Totoro was for a friend who loves the movie:


Then I painted this picture today, which will match my house wonderfully since the theme is black, red, and white, and we have lots of how quirky pieces on our wall.
This was based off of this quilt (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370781.0) that I saw here on craftster. But my quilting ability is not up to par, so it became a painting! (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=370781.0)


And finally, winter here has been horrible, lots of wind and there was an ice storm today! So my normal winter beanie wasn't cutting it, so I had to crochet an even warmer one. It is huge on my head, but the bulk keeps me cozy.

Tissue paper-ed up some drawers


Painted some pots for sweet peas


I'm mid way through some clay plant markers, and I also have my shoebox challenge up my sleeve :)

Love the colours you used in the blanket  ;D

Paperbeau those drawers look lovely.

My oldest son Josh saw a pic of the hat I made and decided he needs a new one. He wanted black but I talked him into charcoal grey as I have some lovely merino/alpaca/something to use which feels lovely and soft and has he shaves his head I figure a soft yarn will be nice to wear  :D I'm halfway through a basic beanie and should be able to pt it in the mail to him tomorrow.

I too learned to crochet by making amigurumis. But that may be because I always try something way too difficult to make when learning a new craft. But now I am trying granny squares and other flat pieces and just can't figure them out! They end up so wavy and I can't weave in ends since amigurumis just hide the ends!

they sure are - probably only 8 inches high in total, I think they originally came with make up in them..

how did you all learn to knit and crochet? You seem so quick! Everyone has so many projects done and they are all looking so lovely and I'm just doing a steady 2 rows of a blanket a day!!

OH, do photos count as craft? If so I took some lovely ones out on the beach yesterday: http://paperbeau.weebly.com/3/post/2013/01/a-trip-to-falmouth-swanpool-beach.html

but I wont count it as one of my 50!

Yoopidou today has most certainly been a hat day  ;D My crochet wand defaults to "hat" when I can't think of what else to do *lol* I make hats for almost everyone who asks me but I don't always get round to making them straight away. I'm very stressed today and the hats are helping me calm down.

PaperBeau, my Mum taught me the basics of knitting when I was 9 years old but I never really got past basics until last year when I taught myself to make socks and to cable  :D
I'm a self taught crocheter and can't recommend YOUTUBE enough  ;D

I have more yarn finished! Yeah, I'm counting each one as a project since they take awhile to do. It took me two hours just to ply!  In order of finished;

Another purple one but this one is much better (the one on the bottom). The top one was only 40 yards, but the second was 120 yards.


I then switched to a different color. Still 100% Merino but this one is superwash. The one on the left is two ply and 207 yards and the one on the right is thick and thin single for weaving, 212 yards.



I have my loom warped and ready to use that thick and thin. I'm making my nephew a monster for his birthday. It was last week but his party is on Saturday. I've never made one before but always wanted to. I'm hoping it turns out okay.

I made another hat  ;D the ever popular Divine http://www.rheatheylia.com/index.php?page=patterns&PHPSESSID=31b01275b5378cf8fc7f4a63a9af794e

It seemed to take a lot of yarn I thought I had enough of the first colour then realised I'd need a second and then a third! They were only oddments though not full skeins.
I'm tempted to keep it although I don't usually wear neutrals it looks OK on me  ;D

vampedangel - that yarn is to DIE for :) hoping to be able to get my brand new, untried spindle out soon, and would love to produce something even approaching that, both in colour and in texture - I just want to get my hands right in there!

I have SO much catching up to do - lots done but not posted - will catch up the other groups, then I can link to them here, and just put thumbnails here, or the post will take a whole page :p :o ::)

WOW - I didn't realised I'd done quite so many art journal pages so far this year!! 12, including Jan and Feb pages for the Calendar Challenge!!!

I won't post them all here - they are over on the 2013 art journal along page at this point (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=418689.msg4957012#msg4957012). Every single one of those pages was for ME - to try and get rid of whatever it is thats making my brain 'fart' so spectacularly at the moment.

Also for me are these 2 felt pieces:



I am going to embellish this flower with yellow beads and thread in the middle, then use it on the hessian wall hanging - yeah - the wall hanging is now officially a WIP  ;D

and this little vase:



It needs a bit more work on it so it stands up a bit better, but for a first piece done around a form, not bad I thought  8)

Lovely yarn, vamped! I just posted on your thread on the fiber board, but thought I'd say so here as well!

Last night I made a very simple project - 3 bottles with colored water and glitter for my kids at school. They were a hit! My co-teacher is going to bring in some more bottles for me tomorrow so I can make the rest of the rainbow. That's the downside of using reusable cups all the time - I don't have plastic bottles to craft with very often! ::)

Thank you for the comments everyone. I really think that I'll be staying with the fiber type crafts as I seem to have fun with them the most. I have been destashing other things that I don't use so I have more room for fiber and other fiber related goodies.

Hey, Karasu! Good to see you!
I'm been working on swap items, mostly from stash. Need to get cracking!

Just made Sharnie ANOTHER new collar. At this rate I'll make 50 projects just out of replacing them!  ::)

Question time.

I know some people are saying they will not count projects done for swaps or done to sell or for charity.

If you are one of these, would you mind explaining to me? I can barely get anything done between work, repairs and general upkeep of my surroundings. I can sort of in awe of those who can hit 100 plus projects.

Of course, I have been working on the same stupid fingerless mitts for over a month now.  >:(

I just love that yarn.  It looks silky, soft and so warm!  I can invision a pair of bunny hop slippers made with it.  I can just see myself walking in the house with them on my feet.   ;D

Krafty_Karasu-
You plan to make a Harry Potter shadow box!  That sounds so awesome!  I already want one! 

deathbefore dishes-
Those scarves are pretty.  They remind me of the luna lovegood ones i have seen.  Have you seen them?  I made one for my mom, so pretty and easy.  You should try making them too.

I hit 100+ last year, but I did count things to sell, and for charity. Also, I'm a stay at home mum, with a very messy house  :D

Which is not to say that being a SAHM isn't hard work, just that my "boss" lets me crochet while I supervise.

SilverMoon - I also have a similar job, part time :)
We're at the "Mommy, what are you doing?" phase, and everything I've made lately has been claimed. So, she has a new necklace and we're almost done making a bracelet. She helps by handing me the beads one at a time (she's almost 2). Today I saw her putting the tail end of a string in her mouth and then trying to put a tiny bead on the string, like I did earlier. I think I need to find some big beads for her to play with.
Always - I just took a look at the first page and noticed my beaded star is marked as a complete WIP from last year. It's actually freshly done, start to finish this year. I think it's still eligible, because I made it for me, to learn a new pattern. I already made 4 more, in different sizes, maybe I'll have 50 by the end of the year :)

stickerchic87-
That mug rug is really cute.  And i think its so sweet that you make them for your mom for different holidays.  My mom loves flags, so ive bought her a plethera of holiday flags.  But, now Im thinking i need to make her holiday mug rugs.  Are they fairly easy to make?  Do you use any special batting?

Also I love your ginger avatar.  Cracks me up everytime I see it.  I tend to think of myself as a Weasley, instead of a ginger now though.

Stickerchic, I love your shrinky dink postcard bracelet!

I mostly count everything I make, swap items, too. But last year I must have made close to 50 book thong style bookmarks, and I just didn't feel right counting them as 50-odd projects, since they weren't that hard to make.

So glad I'm not the only SAHM whose house has seen tidier days  ;D lol. Mine are quite happy (usually) for me to do other things whilst supervising, but atm DS1 just wants to sit on my lap and watch me playing games (he tells me off if I'm not playing!!!)  :o

Last year I included everything I did and that included each item for a swap, so 4 swap items was 4 projects (got just over the 50 mark last year), however this year doing things a bit differently - doing a lot more art journalling, including the Calendar Challenge, and not counting each individual page. The Calendar Challenge is 12 pages, but still counting it as one project.

I count swap items too.  If I make multiple of one thing at one sitting (not really but you know) then I'll count it as one, otherwise its all counted individually

rottenlittleboys, if it helps, I am one who joins knowing the chances of getting to 50 are quite slim.  I'm a grad student and am in the lab 70+ hours a week.  But I know that joining helps me be more focused and motivated than I would be otherwise.  I know it's hard not to compare your output with others, but for me at least I just have to remember how different my life is from many others on this board (no disrespect AT ALL to the SAHMs - not saying my life is better, just different  :D)

Are they fairly easy to make?  Do you use any special batting?

Oh yeah. Just quilt batting scraps, or you could use an old towel, washcloth, or blanket too. You just pick what you want for your front and back, sandwich a piece of batting in between, quilt as desired, trim, and bind. Or if you dont want to bind, you can quilt the front to your batting, and then face your front w/batting to the right side of your back, stitch and turn inside out, and then topstitch around the edge. The back wont be quilted, but it helps on those days where you just dont feel like binding. ;) Hope that made a little bit of sense!

SilverMoon, I understand. I am glad you  chose to include everything.  I doubt your house is as messy as you might think. ;)


mama24boyz, oh my. Do your ‘bosses’  help at all? :D

Tanath, Aww, you 2 year old helps you craft? How precious!

StickerChick87, I love the purse!

mini_mum, kids and crafting are more important right now.

fishstix43, do you craft to keep your self grounded? Sane? A peep on the outside world?

StickerChick87 that purse is awesome! Looks like it could go with formal or casual looks.

fishstix43 I too am in college (still an undergrad, but I certainly feel for you grad students) and I know how wonderful crafting can be, it's peaceful compared to research and school. :)

hiya bookstorebabe!  ;D

Krafty_Karasu-
You plan to make a Harry Potter shadow box!  That sounds so awesome!  I already want one!

I've already made Resident Evil, Silent Hill 3, and Twilight shadowboxes.  and I love HP, so I need to make that one too, but I'm stuck!!!  I'm trying to figure out how to make a table out of stuff I have.  I can make a center-balanced table, but I need a regular style table.  like a kitchen table.  I have 6 bottles made up with different things in them (salt, "powdered unicorn horn", unfinished polyjuice potion, etc.), a crystal ball, floo powder...stuff to put on a table.  now I just need a table.  lol.  well, at least half of a table.  ;)

Krafty_karasu - do you have wood scraps for a table?  Or maybe thick cardboard ?

Post by: Krafty_Karasu on January 30, 2013 08:26:39 PM
well, I do have 2 inserts from a couple of calendars.  I use one for making those wrap bracelets that are popular right now and I kept the other "just in case".  they're not real thick alone, but maybe together?  and I think I may have some other boxes I can use that may be thicker.  but the only wood I have (besides dowels, which I was planning on using for the legs anyway) is a nearly 2 inch thick piece of wood I use for a base when drilling.  so the wood block is out, but maybe the cardboard?

Partially those things, partially because I always have crafted, so less time wasn't going to stop me.  I enjoy having something that involves detail and hands-on work but that has nothing to do with chemistry, and no deadlines other than ones I make for myself.  I think crafting is pretty much hard-wired for me - I can't not do it.
