Final Note of the Semester from Headmistress Jennie....

Please let me offer my sincere congratulations to each and every one of you on another magical semester here in the HPC!  You have all crafted valiantly, and while doing so, you inspired others to new heights of crafting magic.  Well done Crafters. Well done indeed!

Secondly, I would like to take a moment to honor those members of the HPC who gave their craftiest, as it were.  Those who went above and beyond the idea of participation, and into the land of crafty legend.  Therefore I have selected a few MVC's (Most Valuable Crafters) from each House.  These people have each upheld the honor of their respective Houses by earning the most House Points.  (Much like a Muggle MVP award.)

The winners of this honor are as follows...

From Slytherin House... calliemae & ErinAquahearts



From Ravenclaw House...  
noodle-bug & vincentvanbuck



From Hufflepuff House...
midkiffsjoy & Moonflame



And from Gryffindor House...  
jenleahlynn & Mistress Jennie



Please be sure to take and wear your badges proudly!

Note from the Headmistress...


This semester I will be offering 3 extra Challenges.  Each Headmistress Challenge will be themed to the season, will last 1 month, and will earn 15 House Points just like Classes.  So what is up first?



Headmistress Challenge - September
September 1 - September 30

September marks many new beginnings.  The beginning of autumn and harvest time, as well as a new school year for students and teachers.  With the shorter days and cooler nights, it also marks the beginning of apple picking season.  For this challenge you must create something containing apples, something you might find at an apple orchard, or something inspired by apples or apple trees.  Ideas include making your favorite apple pie, spiced apple preserves, apple butter, apple cider.  Not into cooking?  How about  appliqued apple coasters, a mini apple quilt, or a knitted apple friend.

Remember:  Any cooking projects submitted must include a complete recipe (in recipe format) or a link to the complete recipe, as well as a photo.  Without these you will not receive House Points.

Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  None of the HPC staff will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Page Link:  Cotton Rag Rug
Brief Description: This rug was created for Abbeeroad in the IYP Swap (Round 26).  Since Abbee likes upcycled and recycled items, and had just moved back into her house after being displaced for years, I wanted to create something to make it feel even homier.  It is crocheted with 9 different yarns, in a mix of handmade tee shirt yarn (black beefy, black rayon blend, teal, bright turquoise), and cotton worsted weight yarn (deep purple, grey, black, teal, and ombre teal & turquoise.  I forgot to measure it exactly, but it fills up my entryway, which is over 3' wide.
Project Picture:



Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Recipe Link: Chocolate Zucchini Bread
Brief Description: After years interacting on Craftster, I have become friends with some other Craftsters via Facebook.  When MareMare posted a photo of some double chocolate zucchini bread on her FB, I had to copy her!
