Class: Charms
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff all the way
Project Name: Altered journal pages
Brief Description: I used many permanent sticking charms for these pages in a shared altered journal, with glue and with permanent markers. ChameleonHound and I pass this book back and forth, and my pages were way overdue.







Class: Divination
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pencil sketch and paper embroidery
Brief Description: My birth flower is the forget-me-not, which symbolizes daintiness, patience, and affection. On one side of this journal spread is a light colored pencil sketch of my dear friend ChamelonHound's avatar, and on the other are some dainty lazy daisies stitched in colored thread. I had to take my time and be sure of where my needle was going, so I wouldn't get unwanted holes in my paper.





Class: Potions
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Artificial flowers
Project Page Link: http://duhbe.com/blog/2009/07/how-to-make-duhbe-fabric-roses/ (tutorial)
Brief Description: Timing is crucial for these flowers. You need to hold the edges of the fabric up to a flame for enough time that they melt - but stay close to the heat for a second too long, and they'll catch fire. After I made two last term for a dotee, I wanted some of my own! One has a yellow center fading to red petals, another is pure red, and the third is undyed.



Class: Study of Ancient Runes
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: String quilt squares
Project Page Link: http://www.psiquilt.com/2009/05/block-o-strings-tutorial.html (tutorial)
Brief Description: My mother taught me to use her singer sewing machine at a young age - I still remember piecing random bits of fabric together trying to make a canoe. Not sure how I thought that would work... I've learned a lot since then, but I'm grateful that she gave me a good start. I made these string squares for rscowtown in the Ongoing Wish Swap 112.

I received a wonderful package from StainedMushroom! She sent mushroom notecards with matching envelopes, homemade pumpkin apple butter, an octopus locket necklace, and 3 cute hair clips!



The felt tree is such a cool design:



I love this stamp!



This will be amazing with my pirate costume. And the locket has a magnet instead of a clasp, which is really neat. I'm considering putting cat pictures in there. Tongue



I haven't opened this yet, but I'll let you know when I do, SM. It looks fabulous.



Thank you again StainedMushroom! This was such a fun treat to get.

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Black Pepper
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuffnstuff
Project Name: Lattice embroidery state maps
Brief Description: I overlayed the states of Virginia and Vermont, lining up the towns where my partner and I were born. The black embroidery floss gives the color scheme a little punch up, like pepper does for food.





Challenge: House Pride
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflep-diddy
Project Name: Rose dotee for Ludi
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438176.0 (swap gallery)
Brief Description: In the spirit of beloved Hufflepuff head of house Professor Sprout, I spent some time in the greenhouse and made this magical flower dotee in the February MDS. The roses are dyed polyester, and there's a tutorial link on page 2 of the gallery. The buds are on ribbon-wrapped wire.

Thank you! The buds are on wire wrapped in the same ribbon as the hanger loop.



The rose was fun to make - I used this tutorial DuhBe: http://duhbe.com/blog/2009/07/how-to-make-duhbe-fabric-roses/

This month I wanted to dive into pretty fill stitches, so I learned three kinds of lattice work. I designed this pattern to line up the towns in Virginia and Vermont where my partner and I were born. Still deciding if I want to put a little button or something on the exact spot or leave it less obvious...



Mary Corbet's needle 'n thread website was so helpful! I used lattice with french knots for Vermont, griffin stitch for Virginia, and battlement couching for the overlap. Battlement couching also worked to blend my two color schemes together, which I thought was neat.



I'm considering mounting the finished piece Ludi-style, or maybe sewing a border around it and making a throw pillow? Not sure yet!

And I'm first to receive this month too! Lucky me to get this gorgeous strawberry dotee from the esteemed Ludi:



Lovely stitching and details as usual:



I love the unripe berry on the side, and the flower is on a thread-wrapped wire:



Thank you so much Ludi! It's such a wonderful thing to look at when the view out my window is all white and brown. It'll be four long months until I'm elbows deep in this again (picture from last season on the farm):
