Let me apologize again for a huge project dump.  I have done NOTHING but craft for the last week (holiday shmoliday, it'll be relaxing to be back at work, or it would be if I wasn't fretting about the things I still need to get done!).

Without further ado...

146.  Mug Cozy

147. Knitted TP (for a joke)

148.   Button Hoop!  Made this for a friend's birthday - saw the idea floating around on Pinterest.

149. More knitted TP! This one was a bit wider, and I think it worked better.  Also for a joke.  (I need to find less time-consuming jokes...)

150.  Dragon zill case... yes, another one...

151. Another scarf

152. Fork You cross stitch

153-154. Paintings for Lifebook... man, am I behind on that...

155: Release... the QUACKEN!
Project page: HERE

156-164. I decided as part of my cleaning initiative this week to corral my bellydance skirts.  My troupe is more gypsy/spanish style, and as such we have a lot of big skirts.  You can't hang them because 1) they're really too heavy for most hangers and 2) hanging will pull them out of shape, since at the top they're circle skirts and that means bias cut fabric...

Most of the bags are lined (why did I bother?!) and the rainbow one took me over three hours (seriously, I had other things that needed to be done!).  But now instead of having an unsightly pile of skirts, I have... a huge pile of bags...

Cool projects, I like the knitted TP! I just showed OH and he said 'it's a scarf' - not getting the spirit of it!

I am 14 away from my 50. I am going to try and finish some whips to get those numbers up, although the reality is that I should be packing things up to move in 2 weeks!

Does frogging count as a project???  Grin I have several of those that need to happen!

I do have a deadline this week but next year we are making it an even bigger event with more items to raffle so I will mention it 6 weeks in advance next time.
Also I will be making a ton more crafts with the intention of them going to help with this, talk about public motivation to keep it off.

Smeddley - That knitted TP is hilarious!


I have lots of train tickets (I get the train most days), if anyone wants some for papercrafting just send me a PM Smiley

I love the variety of your projects Smeddley  Smiley the skirt bags are a great idea!

Not sure how much more I can achieve by the end of the year but I have to make a HP scarf for my niece Rio,a pair of socks for hubby & I also have a crochet blanket in progress.I kinda lost my doll making mojo as the dark nights/cold weather hit us and I just want to knit or crochet now rather than sewing.

I love all of your projects, but that TP is a hoot.  I also like your cross stitch.

It is December 1st and I have officially hit 50 projects!!!! 

I'm sorry I've been so quiet in recent months!  Life has been busy and I've added teaching clarinet lessons on the side.  It takes up my usual craftster time!  I have pictures to post too I just don't have them on the computer yet!  They're all still on the camera and hopefully I'll get them on here sometime soon. 

Most recently I've finished Zach's sweater and a shawl for myself!  Its so exciting!  It's taken me 3 years to finish 50 projects in a year!  And there are still some projects on my list from that first year.  But its okay.  I made it to 50!  *does happy dance*

I hit 50 with this little knitted star xmas decoration for my mum. It's not a great photo but the yarn is a lovely sparkly white.

Tecnicall I have hit 51 as I have finished knitting the sock for my sister, but as I am still to colour them with the paint markers I cant really class that as a finished project.  Grin
