1  Re: HP Craftalong ~Summer Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* in Craftalongs by vincentvanbuck on: August 20, 2014 08:04:35 PM
It has been such a busy summer!  I feel bad that I have not been around to comment on everyone's awesome work.  Anyway, school is starting next week (eep!), so I need to get in an end-of-term project dump before then.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Crochet Ball
Project Page Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBmqBHNLb9E&index=9&list=PL9C637493FA54B30A
Brief Description:  My friends and I started taking crochet lessons a couple of weeks ago at a local yarn store.  I found this video tutorial on YouTube to help me start to learn how to crochet in the round.  The yarn is a lovely shade of watery blue.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Bean - Marshmallow
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Crochet Ghost
Project Page Link: http://craftyiscool.blogspot.com.au/2011/01/wanna-make-monster.html

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention in the Dungeons - August
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Up Puzzle Piece
Brief Description: I created this Up altered puzzle piece for a Disney theme in the recent puzzle swap.  I absolutely LOVE the way it looks, but quilling all of those balloons is the definition of tedious.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Events - Beater
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Quotes Puzzle Pieces
Brief Description: I made these two pieces for a quotes-themed puzzle in the recent Altered Puzzle Swap.  Naturally, since the two pieces come from the same puzzle, they have to go together -- they can't go with any other puzzle!
Project Picture:





Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Events - Chaser
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Foreign Language puzzle pieces
Brief Description: This pair of foreign language-themed puzzle pieces did not take me long to craft.  The first features the first lines from a very famous Tagalog children's song "Bahay Kubo" (My nipa hut), and the second has color words in Korean.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Events - Keeper
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Crocheted Easter Egg
Project Page Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hWSMbMbohU&index=13&list=PL9C637493FA54B30A
Brief Description: Crafting this Easter Egg involved many repeated crochet stitches.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Event - Cheering/Spirit
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Captain Mickey puzzle piece
Brief Description: In support of the US National Quidditch Team, I crafted this Captain America/Mickey Mouse mash-up puzzle piece.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Penalty Shots - Blagging
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:

Brief Description: All together, this assortment of altered puzzle pieces took me well over three hours of crafting time.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Penalty Shots - Blatching
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Painted poly clay altered puzzle pieces
Brief Description: This set of pieces was made for two different themes - underwater pigs and PAIL (Pregnancy & Infant Loss awareness) -- but they both involved sculpting with poly clay and painting.
Project Picture:





Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Penalty Shots - Cobbing
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Universe Traveler puzzle piece
Brief Description: This universe-themed piece was by far the most detailed and intricate of all the ones I made for the recent Altered Puzzle swap.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Penalty Shot - Snitchnip
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Crocheted pot holder
Brief Description: Having worked exclusively with a size 7 crochet hook since my very first lesson a couple weeks ago, I wanted to try out working with a bulkier yarn and a bigger hook.  So, I bought an L hook and a chunky brown yarn full of colored specks to make this decorative pot holder.
Project Picture:



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch: Penalty Shot - Stooging
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Planetary symbols altered puzzle piece
Brief Description: Altered puzzle pieces are one of my "go-to crafts".  I made this piece featuring the different astrological symbols for the planets for a universe-themed puzzle.

While I was away on vacation, I received pieces for both my Domestic and International Cities puzzle.  Smmarrt crafted San Francisco and Boston:





I did a private swap on the side with Seeuudee for 2 extra pieces, and the UK is now thoroughly represented in my International Cities puzzle!  These first two pieces for London and Chichester feature her own photographs:





The last two are Bath and Oxford:





Thank you so much ladies!

These first two pieces arrived from geekgirl1000100 a full week ago, but we've had all kinds of... "stuff" going on at our house for days, so many thanks G.G. for being so patient with me.  Smiley

First up is Cairo.  I love the camel!



Tokyo is graced by a panda.  It looks like he lost an ear in transit, but that will be an easy fix.  Wink



And from jpdraco, Moscow...



and Cologne.  jpdraco, what's the significance of the black bit underneath the coin?



Thank you ladies!  My puzzle is coming right along!

Dear Headmistress, in my mind I'm thinking we're allowed to post a Bertie Bott project until 11:59 PM Central time of the day the new bean is posted, but I don't see it mentioned anywhere in the post... so if I am mistaken and am just making this up, please let me know and I will re-do my header to submit it for a different prompt.  (I'm sorry -- I know you answer questions like this every time a deadline comes up!  I promise I will make a better effort to get stuff posted in a timely manner next time.  Embarrassed)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's - Blue Raspberry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Captain Mickey altered puzzle piece
Brief Description: I am currently participating in Round 9 of the Altered Puzzle Piece Swap, and I did this piece for a Disney-themed puzzle.  Normally the color most associated with Mickey Mouse is black, but when he is costumed as Captain Mickey, the blue takes over.

My two newest international city pieces are courtesy of camezzo.  The Beijing piece features the name of the city written in Chinese script (which ends up being the same in Japanese, so I could actually read it!  Grin)



German is a complete mystery to me however, so thankfully camezzo included a translation in the accompanying card of the saying on the Berlin piece:



"Berlin is more a part of the world than a city."

Thanks for the wonderful pieces!

camezzo, I'm sorry for the awful flash in those pics, so feel free to post your own if you have better ones.

Artmomto5, I was chuckling to myself when you posted whatthepuck's pieces back on Page 1, since she did both a Mickey and an UP piece as well.  Wink

These two pieces from Luvebuggy99 are for my domestic puzzle.  Seattle:



and my hometown of San Antonio:



Thank you dear!  Kiss

I received two great 3-D pieces from cmarion3 today!  Rome features homemade columns, which I'm guessing are made out of poly clay.  (Sorry for the sideways pic):



Barcelona is sporting the "Barcelona Cathedral" (Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia):



She brilliantly turned the name into a looped 3-D element (so it both saves space and adds visual interest on the piece -- I am totally stealing that technique in the future  Wink):



Loving my pieces so far!

Eeep!  Wizard of Oz pieces!  Yep, that's definitely on my "themes to steal in the future" list.  Wink

I also received from crazyda79 today.  Since we are both doing two themes this round, we decided to add in a personal swap and do 2 pieces for each theme.  So first for the international pieces, we have Nairobi, Kenya...



... and Wellington, New Zealand:



And starting off my Domestic Cities puzzle, two destinations from California.  San Diego...



... and Riverside:



They're all great, but I think Riverside definitely has to be my favorite.  In her note, crazyda79 explained about the significance of citrus in the town's history.  And wow, that orange is really going to stand out in the puzzle!  Just wonderful.  Grin

Thank you for the awesome pieces!

I also received awesome pieces from Artmomto5 today!  She started off my "International Cities" theme with pieces for Rio de Janeiro, Brazil



and Manila, the Philippines!



I just love them, thank you so much.  Oh, I'm so flippin' excited to receive more pieces for this puzzle!

Also, I think the bead ants are super adorable and clever.  Wink

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Anpanman ATC
Brief Description: A tried-and-true method for warding off evil is enlisting the help of a superhero.  Anpanman is one of the most popular TV characters for young children in Japan.  His face is on all manner of products.  Anpan is a kind of bread (pan) filled with slightly-sweet red bean paste (anko).  So, Anpanman is basically a superhero whose head is a pastry roll.
