Is someone going to start a new post for this in 2009? Sounds (and looks) fun to keep track of how many projects you can complete in a year. I'd like to try.

So I didn't make it to the goal of 50 projects, but I did break into the 40s which is awesome considering I took nearly 3 months off from crafting. I guess, I'll try again in 2009. 

November/December Gallery of Completed Projects

My best friend and I hadn't seen each other in 2 years, so we decided a collaborative craft project would be a good way to keep in touch. We provide the other with a fat quarter of fabric, then must create 2 identical quilt squares using the other's fabric as a jumping off point. This was my result from our first monthoh, and neither of us has ever quilted so it's a complete learning experience.

When I arrived back home for a funeral a week and a half before Christmas, I was bombarded with requests for handknit hats for the coming holiday. Lucky for them, not only am I an awesome hate knitter, I also hadn't done any shopping yet as Thanksgiving, home repair and the death in the family had kicked my butt in the previous weeks.

I pumped out a simple 2x2 rib hat for my dad in 2 evenings of tv watching, and a more complicated (because the pattern yielded gigantic results, so I had to start over) beehive hat for my sister in 3 evenings.

It's a tradition that my husband and I give our parents and siblings a gift card as a bonus gift every Christmas. Even though it's not the main gift (we like to give them the chance to treat themselves on us at their leisure), I do like to make the presentation special and this is what I whipped up for this year. Now they can either re-use them in the future, or hang them on their tree next year.

A gift with selfish motives for my best friend, whom I actually got to see this Christmas. A self contained stationery kit to write me. Inside the wrap are personalized notecards and envelopes, an address book with my info already entered, a "fancy" (but freebie) pen and a booklet of stamps.

A fabric photo album for my husband's cousin's daughter. She's only one, but as she gets a little older, I'm sure she'll enjoy pointing out her loved ones in her very own book. My nephew did when I made him a larger version a couple years ago.

This cabled Nintendo DS cozy for my mother-in-law was actually the first Christmas gift I started to make last month, but the last I finished (actually in the car ride down to their house on Christmas Day). The button holes gave me some problems (they were my first), so I moved on figuring if all else failed, she would be able to help me finish her own gift. Needless to say, I finished with a couple hours to spare with only the help of my Knitting For Dummies book.

My husband came up with a great gift idea for a closeable jar to hold my compost scraps on the counter until I got outside to dump them (I think he was sick of seeing plates and baggies sit on the counter for days). He wanted something the was dishwasher-safe, but where we didn't have to see the scraps. He tried to wrap the jar in fabric so we could still remove it and stick it in the washer when necessary, but it just wasn't pretty (I give him major props for trying). So I used what he attempted plus some other odds and ends and created a wrap/cozy that matched our kitchen, hides the contents, but is easily removed.

Though we're not total pigs, my husband and I tend to let things slide around the house and do major clean-ups every couple weekends. That always eats up one day of our weekend, so I've been trying to get us to do a few small things every night to alleviate that. But we always slip back into our old ways after a few days, especially since my husband claims he doesn't know what to do. So I created this chart to hang on our fridge by our "command center". It's like a calendar page with little pockets for each day. In the pockets are wooden spoons that list what should be done each day. We're starting using it today, I really hope it helps.

My second quilt square for our collaborative quilting project. We have the requirement that we have to use a different square pattern every monthso combined with the mismatched fabrics, we're probably going to have a pretty ugly quilt but it should keep us interested and most importantly connected.

I demand a recount! I'm SURE you made 50 -- the FIVE gift card holders alone should count as 5 projects.

Wonderful work. Happy 2009!
