One last project I forgot to include in my previous post:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pink & Silver Polka Dots
Brief Description: This project combines the muggle saying of "seeing the world through rose tinted glasses" and "finding a silver lining in every cloud" reminding us to always look on the bright side of life.

For those who haven't been with us for previous years, my usual modus operandi is to disappear for most of the month and then to pop in with a bunch of crafts for dolls.  This month is no exception.

Angles Everywhere by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Magical Me Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pussy Hat
Brief Description: Made to wear for a local rally.  I've got another one in the works for a friend, but it didn't get done in time for the event.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Minifee Sweater
Brief Description: Doll sweater to use up leftover sock yarn.  Always a lot of counting on the sleeves trying to get the sleeves to come out the same length.  I think it worked this time around.

A Mini Update as opposed to my usual massive project dump.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against Dark Arts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Best Cookies Ever!
Recipe: http://bit.ly/2kp7CeU
Brief Description:  I work at one of our campus libraries supervising the student workers, and always make them cookies at the beginning of the semester as a sort of welcome back gesture and to remind myself that I do really enjoy them, even if the first few weeks of classes makes you want to tear out your hair with all their last minute schedule changes. As usual, I used my favorite recipe for the base and just substitute whatever sort of goodies I have on hand for the peanut butter chips.  This time around I reduced the amount of butter and used mint chips, and I have to say they are some of the tastiest things I've ever made.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Philosopher's Stone
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Basket o' Dresses
Brief Description: I had time for a massive sewing session last weekend, and decided to make a giant batch of doll dresses.  I usually just make them in ones and twosies, so this was a much bigger undertaking than usual, but I did kind of enjoy the assembly line process. (There are two yellow dresses there that were used for another prompt, but even taking those out of the equation it was still an 8 hour undertaking)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree - Bells
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Yellow Dress
Brief Description: I like incorporating the torn edges of fabric in hems and then rubbing my fingers over them to make sure they're extra fuzzy. 



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree - Fake Snow
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cards Galore
Brief Description: We have a Winter Carnival at work in the break between the Christmas holidays and the start of the spring semester.  There's usually some crafty and cooking workshops.  This year and last I had a grand time making cards out of mostly pre-cut odds and ends from one of the ladies in HR who does the stamping up stuff.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree - Garland
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Winter Woods Dress
Brief Description: I made another batch of this dress for the holidays.  I can't quite tell if the fabric is supposed to be pussy willows or just icy branches.  Either way it's really pretty!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree Challenge - Angel
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Charlie's Blanket
Brief Description: My grandomother with Alzheimers' always perked up whenever I brought my dolls along on a visit, so I was conspiring with my mother to get her one of her own version in plastic for Christmas.  I wanted to have something nice to wrap the doll in, so I put some bias binding on a prequilted scrap in my stash.  With all the handstitching involved it wasn't actually quick, but it certainly could have been a lot worse.  Unfortunately my grandmother became ill in mid-December and passed away before she could receive her gift.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree Challenge - Baubles
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Polka Dot Dress for Realfee
Brief Description: My dolls each have their own personal style completely separate from what I have planned for them.  Hoping that the new girl will like pastels and frills?  She'll insist on only the boldest colors, especially red.  It was really hard to send this dress on its way because it suited my own crew perfectly.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree Challenge - Icicles
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Two YOSD Dresses
Brief Description: This project required paying closer attention to the iron temperature than usual when pressing.  My first attempt melted the ribbon I was using for the button placket!


327/365 Two Custom Dresses by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree Challenge - Star
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Christmas Snowflakes
Brief Description: My favorite of this year's batch of Christmas Dresses, fussy cut out of a scrap given to my by a friend.


313/365 Late Night Sewing by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Hagrid's Christmas Tree Challenge - Tinsel
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Glitter Snowflakes
Brief Description: The best part about this fabric is that the glitter doesn't shed.  A wonder of modern textile design!

@gala_apples - What an interesting finding!  It's always amazing what you can learn about people from their bookshelves.

First DeStash project of the year done.  Still have bits of both yarns left over, but I've already started a project to make a dent in the variegated yarn.

~*COMPLETED OWL HEADER*~
OWL Subject & Option: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Jaywalkers
Project Page Link: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Brief Description: Although the photo doesn't show it very well, these socks are made with several different stitch patterns that work harmoniously together - ribbing at the cuff, the zig-zag pattern for the leg and top of the foot, slipped stitch for the heel, and stockinette for the toe and sole.  I'm very pleased with how these socks turned out!
