I have been away with some special undercover muggle studies work at one of their fabric stores to investigate how muggles make their robes, and also working on a special project making music, but this term I'm putting in more of an effort to pop into the castle and keep up with my assignments so here is all the homework I have to turn in:

Class/challenge: Floo: New Zealand
House: Slytherin
Project: Spirit guide horse inktober drawing

Description: I have been participating in inktober this year. I don't expect myself to do all 31 days, but if I get several in I'll be proud of myself. For this ink drawing I drew a horse spirit guide because I have been seeing these clouds perfectly shaped like magical sky ponies as I commute to work during sunrise. I looked up the symbolism of a horse omen or totem and I was very inspired! On my horse drawing you will see some spiral shapes and that's where the prompt comes in. That shape is referred to as Koru in Maori symbolism and refers to a new shoot of a silver fern. This symbol means going back to the beginning as in a fresh start, rebirth, and new life. This symbolism is perfect for me right now in my life and goes right along with what a bright magical sky horse means as an omen or spirit guide! Here's my pic:

Class/challenge: Arithmancy
House: Slytherin
Project: football tailgate party cookies
Description: these cookies were really fun to decorate they weren't very complicated but I thought it was super cute how the two types of sprinkles really did make it look like a field and the crowd. I'm sure these cookies could be easily altered to look like Quidditch instead of muggle football. These fit the prompt because it is my ambition to become a certified wilton instructor.

Class/challenge: charms
House: Slytherin
Project: halloween cupcakes
Description: more decorating demos! This time cupcakes! This fits the prompt because of the blood represented in the decorating and I gave them both to family members.

Class/challenge: herbology
House: Slytherin
Project: cookie decorating demo
Description: Erin and I absolutely love having afternoon tea and tea parties, we make a big deal out of it! So pretty seasonally decorated cookies remind us both of tea. Also these are floral inspired pumpkin designs and the teas I like in general have floral notes to them.

Class/challenge: muggle studies
House: Slytherin
Project: inktober monster race car drawing
Description: this inktober drawing was inspired by the muggle saying "like a bat out of heck" (slightly altered for politeness) meaning really fast.

Class/challenge: Floo Powder Ankh Morpork

House: Slytherin

Project Name: Decorating Demo

Description: so I have recently been tapped at work to become the cake decorating instructor - for which I am NOT certified- this will be remedied over time but as of now I'm kind of winging it and doing it wrong aka uncertified so it fits the prompt. Here's a pic of the cookies I decorated for the demo:

Subject: August detention
House: Slytherin
Description: quilted hello kitty coasters for my house.

This prompt includes two of the coasters pictured. The other two were turned in for a different project.

Subject: apparition
House: Slytherin
Description: hello kitty skirt and matching bow.

I enjoyed this hello kitty fabric so much! I was able to make this skirt and bow as well as the coasters that were previously posted. This project fits the class because the skirt and bow are a set of things that are linked by the matching fabric and are meant to be worn together.

Please note that the small bow in the above picture is not included in this prompt as I will be turning it in for another class.

Subject: astronomy
House: Slytherin
Description: warm orange halloween bow

This bow reminds me of the warm orange sun on beautiful autumn days. It also matches my new halloween skirt that I turned in earlier.

Subject: Flying
House: Slytherin
Description: Small bow for Erin

Erin has much shorter hair than I do so a smaller bow was in order for her. She wanted a matching bow for her skirt too. She made one just like mine Smiley This bow can be seen in the picture with two bows earlier in this post and fits the prompt because it is small and is under the "3x"5 inch limit.

Owl subject: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Description: crocheted afghan

I have always enjoyed crocheting but I have never stuck with a larger project so for my OWL I would like to work on my focus and ability to see things through by transfiguring a large amount of yarn into an afghan for myself. I plan on make the giant granny square type and am not aiming for a particular bed size just be plenty big for me to curl up in. Definitely a blanket not just a throw size.

Subject: quidditch: bumphing
House: Slytherin
Description: Birthday cookies to enjoy during the match

Subject: quidditch: cobbing
House: Slytherin
Description: a rockstar welcome poster

My friend came to visit me on his vacation so I made an excessive sign to give him a rockstar welcome at the airport, I mean you should be your bff's biggest fan, right?

Subject: quidditch: Flacking
House: Slytherin
Description: cityscape skirt

Another example of what happens when I get a job at a fabric store! I made this skirt without a pattern just using my measurements.

Subject: Quidditch: quafflepocking
House: Slytherin
Description: Altered and stenciled tshirt

This project is the shirt in the picture posted for my previous post and it fits the prompt because I altered a plain t-shirt to better fit my needs. I freezer paper stenciled it using tulip color shots fabric spray paint and I love how it turned out. The glitter I layered on top of the spray paint kind of looks like sparkles in pavement which goes perfectly with the city theme of the outfit.

Thank you so much!

Subject: quidditch: commentator
House: Slytherin
Description: traditional 4 patch quilted coasters.

What happens when I get a job at a fabric store? Quilting. Quilting happens. Lol, anyway there are a lot of things I need to learn about quilting so these little coasters took me all day! They are a part of a whole set of projects I made with this fabric. Because this took me a while I am turning in TWO of the four in the picture for this prompt and I will turn the other two in for another one.

Subject: quidditch: referee
House: Slytherin
Description: Halloween ruffle skirt.

This project fits the prompt because I hate gathering. This skirt had a lot of gathering! It was worth it though because now I have a whimsical outfit for the Halloween season!

If you would like to make a similar skirt, it's super easy: here's the pattern:

I have kind of been MIA around the castle this semester because I am adjusting to a new job and I have had a lot of other projects going on but I have been keeping up with my homework so I have tons of projects to turn in!

Subject: quidditch: try outs
House: Slytherin
Project: elephant nursery painting
Description: this little 6x6 painting of an elephant is for Erin's cousin who just had a baby girl. Erin saw the paintings I made for my cousin last term and thought that it would be a nice addition to the baby blanket that she made to include a set of my elephant paintings.

This one is the first in a series of three.

Subject: quidditch: chaser
House: Slytherin
Description: Freezer paper stenciled dinosaur baby bibs.

Speaking of cousins and babies I made these stenciled bibs for my cousin and her baby. There are three of them in the set so they meet the requirement.
