11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: 50 Projects 2012--Join here and post your lists ! on: January 09, 2012 06:16:30 PM
Hi guys,

I just wanted to post and say hi - life threw me a belter last year, and as such, all crafting went completely out of the window, meaning I catastrophically failed on my 50 for last year.

I'm still quite poorly, so I don't think I'm up to joining in the CAL this year - this is the first time I've even logged in for a couple of months I think, but I just wanted to post to say hello, congrats to all of those that hit last year's targets (OMG Always - 150?!?!), and that there are some lovely things on here already.

I'm not back into crafting yet - have lost all my oomph, but am taking at a day at a time, and will probably be lurking on here to try and get some of my inspiration back.

Yay!!! Silvermoon!!! You made a 'frig'!!! I played angry birds for ages before someone told me they were pigs, and not frogs!! Lmao!!! So they became frigs!
Soooooooo cute though!

Omg!!  Love the Halloween decor! And waggons-jus remember you've already hit your 50, so you know you can do it!
Thanksgiving sounds cool, although I totally get the whole mental holiday thing. Over here Christmas trees were up at the start of October, so it's not really too much difference in the ridiculously early stakes. Maybe it's just where I live, but people here get a bit crazy over eid vs christmas, so I think a non-religious Holiday sounds kinda cool.
I've just got home now, gonna have a shower, flob out in my jamas and look got some suitably poo-coloured wool to knock out a happy poo before bed (sounds so very wrong on so many levels, lol!!)

I saw this via the wonderful silvermoon, and just had to come and comment.
Bowzers!!!!! Seriously, that is so so cool! It just makes me wanna drop everything and start it right now!!!
What type of yarn did you use? May I ask?
Again-just amazing!!!!

Oh my holy crap silvermoon!!! The bag!! The dr!!!!
Well, yes, you are right it is an epic list, and it just got a little bit epic-er! preg_replace('/(.{49})/', '$1 ', 'Must.make.dr.who.bag.immediately.or.world.will.end')
That is beyond cool.
Maybe, being sensible, it could be a christmas project for me over the holidays. But I am now forever in your debt for showing me that such things exist!
You're right always- at least a list is something to aim for, hey?
What crazy holiday do you have coming up? (I'm not thick, jus British!!)

wow - it's looking good on here guys - loving AIMR's cryptic clues about next year  Cheesy

that bleach stencilled tee shirt is fab - excuse my ignorance, is it just normal bleach?

I'm slowly getting back into it - had a lot of readjusting to do of late, and think my crafting took a bit of a blow, but I've made myself an insane list of things to make for Christmas, to try and force myself back into the mood, cos the stupid thing is, I enjoy it once I'm doing it, and it makes me feel better - it seems to be the starting I have a problem with.
Should be able to post pics at the weekend, but at the mo I have completed (along with the scarf, skirt and socks), two hats, two scarves and a heart flannel, which takes me to 33/50.

And I've decided to take the plunge and put up my list to be done for Christmas (hope that's OK), cos if it's down in writing, it may give me the kick up the harris I need to complete it, so here goes *deep breath*:

Cupcake bath bombs (2 or 3 batches)
Bath cookies (2 or 3 batches)
2 more heart flannels
A bucket load of tawashis and make up remover pads
6 happy poo amigurumi
2 pairs of fingerless gloves
6 record bowls
crochet scarf
crayon cakes
pencil case
project bag
2 bags (must do - already been requested)
peppermint bark (about 6 batches)
2 x personalised lighters
1 pair kids button flap mittens

and, if there's time, 3 or 5 poppets, but I reckon that's pushing my luck a little bit  Shocked

So, watch this space for monumental failure!!  Grin

OMG you guys work at a rate of knots! I've only just caught up.

I've been a bit MIA recently - with all the crappiness going on I appear to have lost my crafting mojo  Cry

I fiiiinally have internet, so will post pics soon, and I'm nearing the end of the dreaded coursework woohoo!  Grin (we don't mention all the unpacking still to do  Roll Eyes), so hopefully my time will be my own again soon.

I have pics of socks and skirt to post (not worn together I might add!), along with a scarf for myself I've finished, but I've done nothing else, and the list of things is mounting up - in my moments of prolonged madness I appear to have agreed to make all manner of things, and I honestly don't reckon that I'm going to get them all done in time for Crimbo.

My masterplan was to catch up on craftster, and be thoroughly shamed by all you guys' hard work, which would give me the royal kick up the 'harris' I need, except now I think I'm just totally overwhelmed (and a wee bit frightened!)! Maybe I need to utilise Always' 'teaser' concept - just don't think I have that many cards!!  Shocked

Sorry for not naming all of the lurverly things, but it would just take too long, so rest easy in the knowledge that
a) it's all amazing
b) it's a damn site more than I have done!!

Wow-so much stuff! The TM stuff-amazing! not too much on the crafting front for me, still unpacking! Although I have made and worn a skirt (you'll have to trust me-no Internet til next week, so can't post pics!) can't believe how many pages this CAL is at at!!

Wow, so much lovely stuff!! I don't have proper Internet at the mo, but have done another pair of socks. Life's been a bit stupid recently, so haven't had much time to craft, but I now have a new place-all of my own!!! So once I'm unPacked, I can please myself, there'll be no tearing me away from the sewing machine!
I have learnt that I have some amazing friends, so it will be thank you presents all round soon, although you may have to take my word for it till I get Internet, lol!!
Some lovely stuff going on here as always-let's hope it inspires me to hurry up unpacking!!
