Lovely colors for a baby hat...nice pattern, too...

ActsofCraftiness---I like seeing projects no matter how they are spaced...some people like to do one photo at a time; others like a photo dump...whatever works, I am sure that I can speak for everyone:  WE LOVE PICTURES! Grin

I completed another swap project this weekend, so in a few weeks, I will probably have my own photo dump! Grin

I was wondering...do items we make for swaps count towards the 50 projects?

That's up to you to decide. I didn't count them the first year I joined; I only made 47 non-swap items. Last year I did count swap items and ended up with 189 projects!

I count everything. A swap item is still a project you spent time on during the year, right? Smiley

Thanks for the answer!  Now I'm going to get even more specific:  Say I'm in a swap and I crafted one large item and three smalls, do I list that as one project, or four items?

And I'm assuming that swap items would be listed after your partner had received?

"Only 47 items".  Only....No....that's a LOT!

189 items!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked  Wow!

I always keep track of my swap items in my count, otherwise I'd never get to 50!

Renstar I love your hat! Such pretty yarn Smiley
ZombieLili Your drawings are gorgeous! Love the style

I finished a headband my coworker wanted for bringing her soon-to-be-born newborn home from the hospital in. Had to wing it but I like how it turned out!

A project is a project to me. Some are huge, some are tiny, so in the end, I think I think it evens out...but, it is up to each person how they want to count it...

I don't count food unless it is something new I am trying or a special project. Plus, most of those are failures anyway if they are inedible! Grin

Count as you like, with my terms. I don't count. I just lurk and join along. I am sure I will make 50. No need to prove it. But this site motivates me to move along, anyway. And yes, I owe a project yet to AIMR. I don't know why I stalled. It is almost together. All the hard parts are done. So look for it this year

I love the large ladies, like the one on the turtle. Those illustrations are really neat. Like fatty pin-up girls. And your shading is awesome, ZombieLili.

And the hoodies look real comfy. I don't wish for one, as I would not wear it. I do hats and a scarf. But maybe having them together might be a better idea. Less to fuss with. I think I will consider that this year. I think I have a fleece blanket looking for a new job  Grin Did you give a pattern link, texscrapper?
