hmm

would cookery projects count? my cooking experience is practically zero and i want to learn for when i can finally afford to live on my own again, this would give me some incentive to actually get down to it

I used some new, bigger recipes on my 50 things list last year...

Oh! I'm in! I need the motivation.  Roll Eyes I'll have to think about a list.
I think cooking should totally count- especially if you are trying new things. I'm a pretty experienced cook, so I'll probably only count that if I create a new dish from scratch.
Right off the bat, I can say I want to:
1. Try freezer paper stencilling. It just looks like a lot of fun and I love the simple look of the designs.
2. Try book binding (coptic stitch). Because it just looks like fun and I love handbound books.
3. Make crayon stained glass paper. I've been meaning to for years really.
4. Try crayon-tinted embroidery. It's just cute and fun.
5. Make soap. It scares me (possible lye explosions), but I've wanted to do it for ages!
6. Knit a scarf. I really want to learn to knit, and a scarf seems like an easy starting point.
7. Make a wacky-paper art journal. I love them and I have some painted pages that a previous swap partner made me to start out.
8. Paint a tree mural in my hall. Because it would make me so happy every day.
Okay, I'll have to keep thinking about this.

Do you have to list all fifty project before starting? My crafting lists are ever growing and developing- I don't think I could create a list of fifty- every year I do at least fifty different crafts and would like to join

Teag, I'm pretty sure you DON'T have to list all fifty. I mean, really, how many crafters do you know that already know what crafts they will be doing 10 or 11 months from now!!  Certain not me.  I have a starting point (about 30) with things I know I wanna do now, but I will add to it as the year goes on.

excellent, i really dont cook at all (i can just about manage toast!) so everything is a challenge for me.

I have made soap before and its fun, if a little scary, make sure you set aside a whole day for it though, it took me far longer than i had anticipated!

If you can make soap, then you can definitely cook! You either have to be able to follow a recipe or be willing to experiment and order pizza if it doesn't work out. (Or both! Smiley ) Having several openminded guinea pigs diners available to try out your creations is handy too.
Thanks for the advice!
