Galloping gargoyles, everyone is trekking through their lessons so quickly! I finally have the chance to sit and comment on the awesome things that have been posted.
Whistlefish: how I love the hooded cowl! It looks so warm and cozy. I also adore paper snowflakes- they are like magic when you unfold them.
Naantje: Holy hippogriff, you made an awesome sweater! The recipient is sure to love it.
Avesthal: Beautiful fingerless mitts! Great colour, too.
tia: Christmas=new jammies, for sure. Your story is wonderful and the pjs came out great. Remind your little guy to stay put until the weather warms up! Glad to hear you are on the mend!
Moonflame: I need to take soap making lessons from you. Right now. So awesome! So are your knitted kitty hexies (great idea!)
noodle-bug: Yay for more knitting! Fantastic shield hat and all of those embroidered hankies. Wow! Then you made a super cool coffee cozy AND an album? You're rocking winter semester!
Maman: Your unicorn sweater is so cute and fluffy I could die! It is perfect, and as soon as I learn soapmaking at Moonflame's, I'm headed to your place for knitting lessons. And watercolour lessons. Oh, and Waldorf doll lessons...
Nicajeanie: seeing Perler bead anything makes me happy, but your snowflakes are especially joyful.
Linakins: I'm late to the party, but I'd still like to say Welcome to Hogwarts! It is crazy fun here as you probably figured out by now. Awesome finger chained scarf! Your gilded box came out really awesome, too. Can't wait to see your future projects!
coulsenl: Is that your FIRST crocheted dishcloth?! It's so neat and uniform! I remember my first crocheted dishcloth and it looked more like a bird's nest. Like a really messy one. Great job.
FiberAlchemist: Hello HoH! Letting you know that I have decided to pay more attention to the bulletin board and less time with my nose in a book. I'm excited for the scavenger hunt and think it is a great way to exercise those crafty muscles. Thank you for the Bagel French Toast recipe; looks delish!
rockmygypsysoul: Y is for Yak. So much better than Yo-Yo, I think. I love this!
Okay, so if I missed anyone, I'm terribly sorry. I've staggered from the Land of Swaps back to the castle and have just recovered.
Class: CoMC and Ravenclaw scavenger hunt (Glitter)
Project Name: Rainbow Unicorn Tree of Magic!
Brief Description: I thought this was the perfect opportunity for me to decorate a vintage pink tree with the loads of Shiny Brite ornaments I have and make it a bit more happy with unicorns. They have finger painted bodies and legs painted with the edge of cardboard, and were glitter-ized to finish off the zazziness.
Project Name: Santa Tchotchke
Brief Description: Seems I need to work on apparating more accurately because I intended to go to Maine, a state I have yet to visit. Looks as if I went slightly too far and ended up on Santa Lane. But I had such a merry time with the jolly old elf that I came home and crafted the little guy from paperclay.
Project Name: Dashing For the Does hoopla
Brief Description: So many boring walls, so little time. Sigh. However, I started a hoopla wall to make one of them a bit more exciting and stitched this oh-so-festive stag to add to it. The original pattern was issued for the newest needlework challenge but I kinda went buck wild with it.
Class: Alchemy and Ravenclaw Scavenger Hunt (Natural Fibres)
Project Name: Dual Duty Knitted Cowl/Headband
Project Page Link (if available): Pattern Here
Brief Description: Made from 100% pure wool (and one old button). This is going in DD1's care package. I must love that kid because I actually blocked this piece.
