I just found this topic and I really like to join! But isn't it a little bit late to do so? I mean, it's allready may.. What do you think?

This sounds like a good idea. I am in, even though I just found this thread and probably won't make it to 50. I figured though as long as I try to get as many of my unfinished projects done that I can.  Cheesy  I have already made three tea towels in the last month, however I can't post them yet since my partner in the swap I was in hasn't received yet. here is some things I want to try to get done this year (not in any particular order);

Making at least 6 or more handmade Christmas gifts
Make at least one handmade item for my niece bday
Making my sister a handmade gift for her bday
Making a handmade gift for my mothers bday
Making a handmade gift for both of my grandmothers bday
Making a handmade gift for my mil
making a handmade gift for my friends baby that is due in June
Making a handmade gift for my cousin in laws baby, which was born in april
making a handmade gift for my cousin who had a baby in Feb
Making at least one or more walker/wheelchair bag for a lady I write to as well as for nursing homes
Making a few pillowcases for an organization that gives them to kids at hospitals
crocheting a dish cloth (that is actually even on the sides!! I always have problems with that  Undecided)
sewing my husband a pillowcase or something else for his bday (he usually says for me not to make him anything so we shall see)
making a few needlework items to put on our walls (since they are bare and the walls are white due to us living in an apartment)

As you can see I don't have any particular ideas on what to make for people, but I am going thru my craft room later today, so I will definately find ideas there!!
