I'm not getting the option to upload pics, so I'll get the info posted and come back on my phone later to add pictures.

Class/Challenge: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Link: Christmas duvet cover
Brief Description: I used 5 fabrics to create this 9 square x 9 square (or 81" x 81") duvet cover for the Christmas season.  The picture also includes the pillow shams and pillow case.

Class/Challenge: Apparition
House: Hufflepuff

BEFORE
AFTER
Class/Challenge: Defence against dark arts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Link: Housecoat for Mom
Brief Description: I tore apart a worn out terry bath robe, and created this much prettier soft and fluffy housecoat for my Mom.  I created my own bias binding to add some flare rather than just using a contrasting solid because I couldn't get a colour match for the blue.

Class/Challenge: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Link: lace votive holders
Brief Description: My niece and I did these together - she did the first layer, I did the following 6 layers of paste.
First we had to wrap our form in plastic and then add a coat of oil so as to have easy removal.  Then we mixed 1 part water with 1 part glue.  After that we dunked the lace doilies in the glue mixture, smoothed them around the form, and let it dry.  then I continued to brush on the glue mixture several time throughout the week.  We finished it off by inserting a battery operated tea light.

the hoopla is great, and the baby outfit is adorable - reminds me of one I did for my niece at 1 year old for a Christmas in July party 7 years ago, can't believe it was that long ago.

Here's a picture of my new bedding, finally finished in time for Halloween:)

and I think I will upload the rest as thumbnails to my original post, see how far along I am to 50.

I have officially served my September detention.  Tomorrow we'll see what else I can get finished.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: September Detention
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Duvet cover & shams & pillow case
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I started this way back in beginning of October last year, then when I could see there was no chance of getting it done for Halloween, I put it away - and forgot about it until my craft room purge this past summer.  Jump to September and thinking I need to finish it, some solid days on it this past month and it's finished.  Regretfully, I can not get a picture of how it glows in the dark (Spider web, and certain details in the pictures.)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Head mistress September challenge
SPEW: (If your item is for charity, enter that here; if not leave blank or add n/a.)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Applesauce
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) As I looked in the fruit drawer of the fridge, I found several not so good looking apples.  One tradition I have is to make homemade applesauce for our thanksgiving dinner, so I did exactly that, and put it in the freezer.

RECIPE: about 10 medium size apples, 2 cups water, 2 TBSP honey.
1) Peel and core all apples, cut into small chunks and place in a pot of water.
2) Cook apples until soft, mash them up to the consistency you like.
3) Add honey and mix thoroughly.
4) Put in a freezer safe dish and store in the freezer until needed.

Project Name: Decoupage pumpkins
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.)  I created these for a display at work.  I cut the handles off of two plastic pumpkins (the kids trick or treat bucket kind), and covered them with fabric that had been dipped in a solution of 1 part glue and 1 part water.  Once that was done I let them dry for 24 hours and added some fake flowers.

Project Page Link (if available):

I've completed three classes in only 1/2 the semester, woohoo!  My goal is to complete every class this semester, we'll see how I do.

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: copper and cream wreath
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I used a rich copper coloured organza and a light cream organza tied around an old embroidery hoop to create the wreath, and finished it off with a copper coloured organza ribbon that was embossed with a brown vine.

Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I used 3 purple fabrics to complete these pyjamas, as requested by the 8 year old Miss G.  A purple sparkle butterfly, white and purple polk a dots, and an all over white/yellow polk a dots on lilac.  The way they are done was sent to me as a sound bite by her Mom but it turns out when she saw her sisters nighties she was in tears, so for Christmas I think theyll all be getting nighties
