I didnt mean to quote my list, after everyone saying about seeing lists twice!! I have no idea what I did!Just wanted to post my updated list, I hadnt updated it on here since about June!!
This year Im definitely going to keep a master list, with photos of everything I finish on! I have so many things I either forgot to photograph, or put the photos somewhere random, it would be nice to look back at the end of the year and see everything!!

I have a lovely one from the OWS swap which Im using, but I would like to make a smaller one myself, to use when Im out and about, I use this one at home, its fun!

2. Make a cushion. I would like at least 1 decorative cushion, for my room, and that I can also take if I go to uni this year. At uni, have a crochet cushion from OWS, am now knitting myself one, I can never have too many cushions right!

4. Make a book for my photos. So I can display them nicely, and look at them when I like.

13  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Selling knitted toys made from book patterns? on: December 28, 2010 02:14:36 AM
Hi, Im not sure if this topic has been posted exactly before, I couldnt find an exact answer, so I thought Id post!
Anyway, my mum bought me a load of books full of patterns for knitted toys, for Christmas, thinking I could make them to sell, on folksy and maybe also at craft fairs
BUT, theres the whole thing about 'resale of any of the products made from this book is strictly prohibited'
So does this mean I cant sell any made from the book, even if I change the colour, a few stitches, though I think it would be difficult to make them completely different from the photos in the book? Do I need to mention the book name in my listing?
Please help!!

I got an amazing craft holder Cheesy Its so awesome, already put to good use! Its great for taking my craft stuff round the house, and holding it neatly in my room, I love it, thank you!!

And the advent calendar, its so beautiful, sorry, our house is so dark it was hard to get a photo that actually shows the awesomeness
