Fly-by posting before I leave to live in a field for 10 days! If anyone sees me at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, please say hi! Cheesy

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Blue Raspberry
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Hippie pirate dress
Brief Description: Most people who know me expect to see me in purples and blues, especially if it's something I made myself. This time I challenged myself with a different and unexpected color palette, and I completely love the result!

Challenge: Quidditch World Cup - Snitchnip
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepufffffffffff ffff
Project Name: Curly crochet cat toys
Project Page Link : http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-curly-fringe/ (tutorial I used)
Brief Description: Crochet is definitely not my thing - I tried it once years and years ago, and it didn't take. But after La Chapa made me a beautiful crochet bag in the Enchanted Forest swap, I've been thinking I should try it again. Our new kitten Rupert (Ripper) will literally play with anything, so I knew these would be a success! It was fun doing them, and I think I'll try more crochet in the future.

Can't wait to read your post! I'll have to check out that Kitchen Aid ice cream attachment.

Very cool, jex! Strawberry ice cream sounds lovely. Did you use one of those ice cream machines? I think I'm going to try blueberries next, then hopefully salsa.

I love all the new Quidditch challenge prompts - I'll have limited time to work on them since I'll be on vacation, but hopefully I'll get one or two done!

The lastest WotW is up on the noticeboard Smiley

I haven't had much time to comment the last couple of weeks, but I really enjoy going back over the posts while considering WotW, it gives me a second opportunity to appreciate the work you guys do!

D'awwww thanks noodle-bug!  Kiss

Hello! I'm proposing this OWL privately, as it will be for a swap. I'm one day shy of three weeks 'til I have to send it out, so I hope it qualifies!

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Care of Magical Creatures - Option 1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Forest animals mini art quilt
Brief Description: I will be representing some of my partner's favorite woodland creatures (moths) in the form of a mini art quilt. This will be my first MAQ, so I'll be going pretty slowly!

Expected timeline:

week 1: design sketches and materials gathering, preliminary sewing
week 2: lots of sewing and embelishing
week 3: backing, binding, finishing touches

materials will include fabric, thread, paint, buttons/beads, and natural objects (bark, etc.)

OWL Subject & Option: Care of Magical Creatures - Option 1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Forest moth MAQ
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434495.0
Brief Description: My partner in the Enchanted Forest swap finds moths magical, and I agree! I made this mini art quilt to capture some of that essence.

Class: Apparition
Extra Credit: June CoMC (my fresh garden produce is highly prized!)
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: BBQ Pizza
Brief Description: Think of how terrible it would be to splinch away your stomach! To help me concentrate on proper Apparition, I made this to fill up my stomach, which I hope will help keep it with me. For those who have never tried making pizza with barbecue sauce instead of tomato sauce, omg try it it's amazing.

Half a ball of frozen pizza dough
Barbecue sauce
Fresh mozzarella
Grated cheddar cheese
Fresh or frozen corn
Red onion
Fresh kale

Stretch out your thawed dough as thin as you can get it into a vaguely pizza-like shape, and lay it on a floured cookie sheet. Spread out a good layer of barbecue sauce right up to the edges. Layer on sliced mozzarella, grated cheddar cheese, thinly sliced zucchini, and thinly sliced red onion. Sprinkle on some corn kernels and torn kale leaves. Bake according to your pizza dough instructions (about 15 minutes at 375 for mine). DEVOUR.

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflypuffly
Project Name: Crow galaxy shirt
Brief Description: I admit I considered bringing a crow to Hogwarts instead of my cat, but I don't know how well she would have gotten along with all the owls! I used a stencil, bleach, and fabric paint to reflect the mysticism of a crow.

Class: Potions
SPEW: n/a
House: Huff to the Puff
Project Name: Preserving strawberries 3 ways
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=434479.0 (recipe links in this post)
Brief Description: Inspired by the number 3, I brewed up some yummy strawberry potions.

Challenge: Quidditch World Cup - July Challenge
Extra Credit: June Divination (my garden is my soothing place)
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflin'
Project Name: Boot portkey planters
Brief Description: I went for the traditional boot portkey, but I couldn't bear to just have an old boot laying around my yard. So I turned a pair of my old work shoes into planters, so they can serve a purpose until I need to take one of them to the World Cup.

Class: Transfiguration
SPEW: n/a
House: Pufflehuff
Project Name: Felt mushroom magnets
Brief Description: I think I still need to work on Gemino - my second mushroom was a bit smaller than my first. But considering in practice I couldn't even get them the same color, I think it's pretty good!

9  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / White moth mini art quilt on: July 09, 2014 06:08:45 PM
My partner in the Enchanted Forest swap, La Chapa, said some of her favorite forest critters are moths. This MAQ started to form in my head - a white moth on some kind of foresty background.

I ended up using Eudeilinia herminiata as my reference moth, with three different white patterns in the body and wings, and paint for the grey spots.

I added in some metal charms, and had a different embroidered quilting for each strip of fabric on the background.

One of the strips got painted dots, and another got beads, but mostly it was embroidery.

I used http://www.embroidery.rocksea.org/reference/picture-dictionary/ for embroidery reference, and it was great as always!

The antennae were especially fun to do!

This was my first try at a mini art quilt, and I definitely think I'm going to do more!
