I haven't officially signed up yet, but what do y'all think of these star strings?



If it's too small, maybe I could send them out in pairs?

Take a look at the amazing moveable bookmark I received from elderflower! We share a love for the book Watership Down, so she painted a scene with rabbits in a meadow, and Keehar, a bird they meet.



But if you move the tab, a fox appears from behind a tree, and all the animals hide!



I think that's such a clever idea, and beautifully executed. Thank you again elderflower!

Aww I love Buttercup! And I'm glad you enjoy the theme mixing, blu. When that idea popped into my head I knew I had to run with it.

Here is the beautiful bookmark that blupaisan made for me! She has never read Garth Nix's Abhorsen books, but still she captured Lirael, the Dog, and Mogget perfectly. Thank you again!



By the way, anyone else super excited for Clariel coming out next month???

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Aubergine
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Harry Potter eggplant... dolls...?
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435549.0
Brief Description: I combined Harry Potter and eggplants in a very literal way. Harry, Hermione, and Ron eggplant people, complete with accessories! More pictures and kind of an explanation in my main post. Smiley

8  Harry Potter... eggplants?! in Completed Projects by Acadian Driftwood on: September 06, 2014 03:42:24 PM


So I work on an organic vegetable farm, and a few days ago I was out picking specialty eggplants. A few of them had these little growths that made them look like veggie gnomes or something, so I had to take them home with me! Originally I was just going to glue on some googly eyes and take funny pictures for facebook, but I got a bit carried away. The Harry Potter Craftalong has a challenge right now involving eggplants, and I was inspired to turn them into Harry, Hermione, and Ron. I hope you enjoy this little dose of weirdness!



I made Harry a Kale2000 racing broom, and found him a little Hedwig in my bead stash.



I made Hermione a course book (Standard Book of Spells, Grade 2), and found her a Crookshanks from my curio shelf.



And for Ron, I made a broken wand (cat whisker unicorn hair poking out), found him a Scabbers from the curio shelf, and gave him LOTS OF SNACKS.

FiberAlchemist, I love your ironing board project! I really want to make one for myself now.

Naantje, what a beautiful sweater! It looks like it fits very well, and so cozy too.

BringMeKnitting8, I love those mittens! With all the great knitting projects posted this term, I feel inspired to try a few projects Fall term.

jenleahlynn, that planter looks great! I bet your dad loved getting it.

tiamatfire, fabulous coat! I'm putting that pattern on my wishlist.

ErinAquaheart, that is such a great OWL! I especially like how you did the woodgrain on the bats.

Okay, I have one more project for this term, and my NEWT to turn in!

Class: Arithmancy
SPEW: n/a
House: HufflePuffle
Project Name: Dill Pickles
Brief Description: Inspired by the Chinese pronunciation of nine, I made 9 jars of dill pickles that I hope will be longlasting!



I couldn't find the recipe for this one online, so here's a simplified version of the one in my Ball book! If anyone actually wants to follow it, message me and I can give you more detailed instructions.
Ingredients:
7 lbs pickling cucumbers
1/3 cup pickling salt
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
2 chopped jalapeno peppers (seeded)
3 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp dill seeds
9 fresh dill heads
1.5 cups sugar
2 tbsp mustard seeds
5 cups white vinegar

Wash cucumbers, cut of a slice from both ends, slice them into spears, and put them all in a large bowl or pot. Sprinkle them with the canning salt, and add enough ice water to completely cover them. Press a plate over the top with a weight on top, making sure all the spears are underwater. Leave them for two hours, then drain and rinse.
Use proper canning procedure to prepare your jars and lids. Combine garlic and both peppers in a small bowl and set it aside. In a large pot, combine sugar, mustard seeds, dill seeds, vinegar, and 1.25 cups of water. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes, then add the cucumber spears. Bring back to a boil, then remove from heat. Pack your jars 2 tbsp garlic/pepper mixture, 1 fresh dill head, and cucumber spears. Fill with vinegar pickling liquid leaving 1/2 inch headspace, and process in a water bath for 10 minutes.

~*COMPLETED NEWT HEADER*~
NEWT Subject: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spring veggie & flower garden
Brief Description: I had a great time with my garden this summer! I made two raised beds out of cinder blocks, and filled them with nice composty soil. Most of the things I planted I got for free (perks of working on a farm!), so there's quite a variety. I planted a lot of flowers, which kept the pollinators happy. I had a lot of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds come by. And plenty of veggies and herbs kept me happy. Cheesy

Here's an early and late season comparison of my two raised beds:





Some of the lovely flowers - sunflower, zinnia, sunflower, Fiesta del Sol, marigold, torenia.



And the delicious produce! Edamame, basil, scallions, kale, sungold, yellow pear, and grape tomatoes, tomatillos, lettuce, arugula just germinated, butternut squash, and a gourd that decided to grow all by itself from my composty soil.



Not featured in that picture collage: Dill, cilantro, parsley, winter savory, oregano, lemon balm, cucumbers, summer squash, cauliflower, and plum tomatoes that a chipmunk mostly ate. At least I kept the gnomes at bay! I gave them their own space in the perennial garden, so they mostly left my veggies alone.

Challenge: Quidditch - Haversacking
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Boyfriend mending
Brief Description: I finished three WIPs for this challenge - all things I'd told my partner that I'd fix for him. The t-shirt has been waiting for a month, the button-up for about 6 months, and the scrub top... well, let's just say longer than that.

T-shirt with holes worn in the arm pits:



Button-up shirt with a rip in the elbow:



Scrub top that was to tight after the first time I "fixed" it:



Challenge: Quidditch - Blurting
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blueberry bonanza
Project Page Link: http://www.culinate.com/market/WilliamsburgFarmersMarket/recipes/wfm_recipes/blueberry_bonanza (very similar to the recipe in my book)
Brief Description: When canning, you have to make sure that all your jars are closed up tight! Nothing's getting in there. I made blueberry bonanza from my Ball canning book with blupaisan. The recipe makes blueberry syrup (pictured on pancakes), and blueberry butter (pictured on toasted pound cake). Some jars not pictured, because I sent blu home with them!
