Love the bright colors of the afghan!  That must be a lot of yarn destashed.

gaudiknight, your angel food cake looks lovely, and it sounds so good with summer berries.  Cheesy  Please remember however, that in order to receive House Points for a cooking project, you must post the recipe in the thread, or provide a link to the complete recipe that you used if you found it on the web.  This rule is listed on the first page of the HPC thread, and it was discussed very recently within the thread.  Here's a quote of the questions & answers...

OK.  Thanks for the heads up.  It's been a while since I have read all the way through the beginning material.  I'll probably have to find another project for the June detention, as the cake was more an experiment to figure out the idiosyncrasies of a new oven (which turned out to be Legion) than about trying a new recipe.

There have been so many awesome projects lately I can't keep up with them all!

Vincentvanbuck - Your little box makes me wish October would come sooner.

Naanje - I love the paracord bracelets.  And the leaf pendant is great!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention in the Dungeon
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cake!
Brief Description: Celebrations are hard in the summer when it is too hot for regular cake and icing.  Thankfully there's Angel-Food Cake (which I'm convinced is some kind of strange muggle magic) to refresh ourselves, fulfill our cravings for cake, and to complement whatever berries we managed to pick from near the lake (which something I imagine people do at lakes - I don't really do vacations near water).

Eep!  Can I squeeze in with a Quidditch project before the new challenge is posted?

I'm sorry gaudiknight, but the challenge had clearly posted dates and your project was posted after that challenge closed.  However, since you said you created 9 of them, I would accept the project as an Arithmancy submission.  If you wish to do that, please edit your Header and then let me know.

OK - Changed it to Arithmancy.  But that does raise the question of whether any later quidditch challenges are going to be dependent on having chosen a team to support for the world cup.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Paper Pterodactyls
Brief Description: I needed a photoprop one day and had just found a pack of itty bitty origami paper in my stash.  I decided to make some cranes, but then discovered my fingers had forgotten how to fold them.  I found instructions and proceeded to make 9 to get the process back in my muscle memory, but they turned out looking a bit more like dinosaurs than birds.

That's a great strategy!  Sometimes fewer options really does get the creative juices flowing.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Grapefruit
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Four Frocks
Brief Description: I found four little doll dresses I had knit up two years ago but never blocked and seamed.  They were such nice citrus-y colors (mostly - there's one grape masquerading as a grapefruit) that I knew I had to get them done for this summer.  It is quite refreshing to have some long neglected WIPs out of the work-basket.

That reminds me that I have an unfinished quilt top somewhere in my stash.  Perhaps that should be my next sewing project...

Wow, calliemae!  That is an amazing stash! 

I moved last week and am having trouble figuring out what to do with the stash.  So far it's still in its packing boxes, tucked into the closet.  The problem is that I have no space for a craft desk in the new place, and I don't know how motivated I'll be to keep setting up/taking down the sewing machine on my little dining table.  I may be making more inroads on my yarn stash than the fabric in the coming months.

It's not really crafting, per se, but t-shirt materials make great rags.
