As I made progress, I would post where I was or cross it off if I finished.  Here are pictures of what I finished:
#1: Lauren't Custom Quilt:
This is a memory quilt that I made for her son, Greg, using clothing she had saved from his childhood.

I used a neutral brown for the backing, I believe it's Fox Trails Stars.

 I chose this red for the binding as I loved how it brought out the red within the quilt.

#2. Custom ordered burp cloths
These were made for a friend I knew growing up who is expecting her third child.  They are awaiting the little one's arrival to find out if it's a boy or a girl-which will be really soon!

These were so much fun to make!  I used cloth diapers and flannel.  I prewashed everything because of their inherent shrinkage nature.  I used a blanket stitch to secure the flannel to the diapers for durability, because they are going to see ALOT of use!  :)

#6.  Not your Granny's Bee blocks
These were late finishes in the bee department.  I was a bad bee-mate.  But, they were finished nonetheless and I love them!

#8. Sean and Stef's Wedding Present
This was so much fun to make.  I used Pure by Sweetwater as that is her living room color scheme and the pattern is from Distant Pickles called Cosmic Burst.

#14. Flaming Cowl
This is currently a listing in my shop and was a ton of fun to make!  The pattern is Husk by Lisa Mutch over on Ravelry.

And these are what I have made progress with:
#13: Baby Blanket for friend:
I have finished the top and just need to sandwich, quilt and bind.  I used the Starburst tutorial from Melissa over a Happy Quilting.

#20: Socks for me.  
I'm close to getting the first of the two finished.  Here is a not-so-great shot of them. I am using the Flutter-by pattern I found on Ravelry.

#26: Custom ordered fingerless gloves
I have finished one and am only about 12 rows away from finishing the second!  This is the one where I forsee finishing by end of day!  This pattern is called Geology Mitts over on Ravelry.

All the others I have either made some progress and forgot to take pictures or I haven't even looked at them!  I hope to have quite a few more crossed off come December 31st; especially since some are to be Christmas gifts!

I am linking up over at Kelsey Sews!
