N.E.W.T. update on Theo's Waldorf Doll:  Today is Monday, I know, but who knows what will be happening on Friday. It was a productive day today and I managed to get most of the body sewn to the head, and his face is finished. Moving on to clothes.

Advance Studies Friday update:

O.W.L.- Since I have been stumped on the base of my ATB for a while now, I have been adding loads of things to the actual block. I'd better sort out the bottom soon or it's going to be a hot mess!

N.E.W.T.- The body and arms have been sewn and stuffed (no pic of that yet) and I have the head constructed. The head looks a bit small, so I'll probably re-do it. And don't fret about the arms looking so gangly...most of that will be sewn to the "muff" of the doll!

Egads! You guys are rockin' the HPC! I feel I am terribly behind in commenting on all the projects, but know that I've seen each and every one and am always impressed with everyone's crafty abilities. Wow!

Class: Potions
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Minty Marshmallows
Project Page Link (if available):Martha's Marshmallows and Marla's Pepermint Marshmallows
Brief Description: Homemade marshmallows most certainly need a watchful eye, and mine was right on that candy thermometer for an eternity. The actual marshmallow was Martha's recipe, but I rolled them in Marla's candy cane powdered sugar in the end. Alton helped.  Tongue



Challenge: Bertie Bott's Gravy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Arthur Rackham ATB
Brief Description: What is an ATB? That's what I asked a few days ago, and learned it is an Artist Trading Block or chunky ATC. Our lovely Headmistress Jennie knows all about them and I hope she shares hers here too! My beginner one was inspired by the beautiful art of Arthur Rackham.



You can see the rest of the block HERE

244  Arthur Rackham ATB in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pottermouth on: January 04, 2014 07:56:09 AM
Not to long ago I was introduced to Artist Trading Blocks, or chunky ATCs. The idea of making a 3D ATC was exciting so I got to work on my first block. It began with Arthur Rackham images and a "glue something to something" method (it's pretty liberating!). So, I water coloured some backgrounds, inked things, glued nature stuff wherever, and here it is:



The front has a tissue paper flower that I colored on, inked a bit, and then added seed beads.







And my favourite side.



Happy 2014!

Class: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Grandma Love
Brief Description: For Arithmancy I decided to study the number four. Four is significant because it is the number of kids I have, as well as the number of grandchildren my mother has. I've had to make up for my sister's lack of interest in kids. For the assignment, I cross stitched my children and mother, and sewed this to some fabric triangles that I stitched together. (Three is my favorite number, so I squeaked that in there, too!) Then I framed it and now it's ready for wrapping.



Class: HoM/ Ravenclaw Scavenger Hunt
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Gifts on the Cheap
Brief Description: Because I hate Christmas shopping with a passion and I love to make stuff, my family knows they will receive handmade gifts from me. This saves me a ton of money on gas, the item, as well as the time it takes to battle through hoards of shoppers and traffic. So far, all I have made are few more ornaments. But I begin cookie baking on Monday! (The last two projects are made from paper clay and paper, so I can scratch paper products off the scavenger hunt list!

246  Sweet and Speedy Ornaments in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 21, 2013 11:31:47 AM
I'm a bit behind in my holiday crafting so I had to come up with something quick to make. The sweet gingerbread couple is in the Fa La La La Felt book, and the stocking was just thrown together.

Adeerable!

Here are my quickie hoops- two ornaments for presents.





Yeah, not much stitching happening there, I know. But I'm in holiday crafting overdrive. I did finish a cross stitch of my kids and their grandma, sewed it to a patchwork background, and framed it.

248  Various Harry Potter Ornaments in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 18, 2013 07:24:41 PM
Last month I was invited to participate in a private Harry Potter swap with some uber talented crafters- tapestrymlp, patty_o_furniture, and chughes225! All of these ladies have envious HP trees that are loaded with all sorts of ornaments. Thinking of what to make for each person was a little challenging, but in the end, I just made fun little toys.  Grin

Fred and George, having fun:



Posable Hippogriff to soar through the tree:


Needle felted baby dragon:


Thanks again for the great swap, tapestry!

Moonflame: awww, Twinkles' muffler looks so cozy. How thoughtful of Bob!

Magpirate: thanks for the taco soup recipe, looks yummy!

noodle-bug: I wants all your socks. They're so lovely!

WhistleFish: Luna!!! She looks like a joy and what a precious face. You're one lucky mommy.

Acadian Driftwood: even though I root for Ravenclaw, I find your Huffleypuff brooms quite lovely and wish you luck in the next tourney!

Linakins: it is terrible to hear about baby breaking her arm  Embarrassed, and I wish a speedy recovery! At least she gets to go to school looking fab in Mom's ingenuity.

Maman: absolutely making the vegan pasta sauce. I will pay attention to the spiral-thingie...thanks!


Challenge: December Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Sand Dollar Art
Brief Description: While considering "circular" crafts, I happened upon a stash of sand dollars. Pulled out the watercolours and told the girls to paint ornaments for Grandmothers. Easy peasy. All I have to do is add a ribbon!



And just when I thought Alton had decided to be a good elf:



he disappointed me again:

250  Snowbelle Ornament (improvised) in Winter Holidays by pottermouth on: December 10, 2013 06:16:30 PM
While rifling through craft magazines at the book store, I saw a really sweet paper clay ornament by Johanna Parker. I couldn't see spending the money on the zine, so I tried really hard to remember what the ornament looked like in hopes of making my own version of it. It has a paper clay head and cardstock body, with a jingle bell in the center. This one is bitty, about 3" tall.
