lol... I have finally started the blanket stitching around the edges of the patches for the fusion quilt. I was so happy to see leslieshappyheart had a tutorial on blanket stitching, her being left handed as well was just icing on the cake!

6. finish two pyramid games
7. make at least six chinese checkers boards, since I sold out of these
8. more scrollsaw ornaments
9. more carved ornaments
10. make a parcheesi board (this is a new item for me to attempt)
11. finish my emu egg carvings
12. carve more ivory piano keys
13. attempt to make a marble roll game
14. make carved spoon, fork and spatula sets

yes, that was a wonderful tutorial...I am also left-handed!

I like to give a few challenge categories so more people can participate...the craft has to be in one of the categories each month (and I am pretty lenient!)...so if you make something blue, it is one entry; if you make an organizer, it is another entry.  I throw all the entries into a "pot" and then let the random organizer pick a number.  You have a chance of winning whether you make one of 20 projects, but obviously, your odds are better with more projects! Grin

Thanks! This definitely answered my question

wow--32 die hard craftalongers and it is not even the New year yet! Grin

« Reply #49 on: December 27, 2013 01:21:45 PM »

I'd like to join Grin.I'd like to get more creative but I need more of a little push to begin with. I think this craft-along will help push me to start and finish projects.
I don't have a list, so can I just post my projects as I finish?
And the first challenge is blue and wintery?And It must be finished in or during the month of January?

Or am I in the wrong craft-along? "alwaysinmyroom" can you steer me in the right direction?I like a little challenge!

Then I'm reserving this spot Grin
1. finish christmas aprons for sisters
