Class: Herbology
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Gryffindor Trinket Box for pinkleo

My Herbology project for this term is a small and simple one, but I was really pleased with how well it turned out, especially since it was part of pinkleo's birthday present.  I created a Gryffindor themed trinket box to hold a necklace and earrings for her.  The box was from Michael's.  I stained it with golden maple and brilliant cherry wood stain markers.  The lion is a brass stamping that I bought from an Etsy seller.  Enjoy!

Quidditch: Seeker
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Snitch Ornament

I've had these beautiful victorian wings sitting on my craft desk, awaiting a project.  When the Quidditch challenge was announced, I suddenly realized they were waiting to become a Snitch ornament for my tree this year!  The body is made of two different metal pieces that were layered to create depth, and were sponged with antique gold craft paint.  (They were originally antique copper.)

Quidditch: Chaser
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Red Dishcloth

Quidditch has been a great inspiration/excuse to craft several things I have been planning for ages.  This year I'm attempting to craft my Christmas presents over the course of the summer, so that I won't have anything to make in December.  I'm crafting lots of *useful* homemade items in bulk, like liqueurs, spice blends, soup & bread mixes, and crocheted dishcloths.  I have to say I was inspired to try making dishcloths by pinkleo, who sent me 7 of them two Christmases ago, and a few bonus ones last year. While I was initially afraid to use them because they were so pretty, I've found I absolutely adore them, and love not having to buy tons of sponges each month that just have to be thrown away.  

So, in order to "get my eye in" a bit as Ron might say, I curled up on the couch on most of Saturday and Sunday, and re-taught myself some basic crochet.  The first result was my Chaser project.  A super simple, bright red dishcloth.  I even braved how to change colors, so I could do a contrast border.  (Though I'm sure the second I wash it, the ivory will turn pink. Wink)  I also have to say a big thank pinkleo for sending me the yarn and pattern book for 99 dishcloths!



Quidditch: Beater
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: ROUND Dishcloths

Ok, so obviously in the above post I mentioned that I had to re-teach myself some basic crochet.  Here's a secret though....  I *never* managed to learn to work in rounds before.  Actually, the only crochet I ever really managed to do was making long winter scarves, with just the double crochet stitch, out of knobbly yarn, that could hide my mistakes.  Every time I tried to teach myself to make something round, it would turn into a big cone shaped mess.  It seemed that working in the round would always defeat me....  Undecided

This weekend I was determined to change that!  So, here is the result.  Not just one, but TWO round dishcloths!  I was pretty impressed with myself over the teal one.  It has spaces and bobbles!  



Well, they might not be impressive to everyone else, but I'm overjoyed with myself for focusing on something and working hard until I got it right.  Thanks pinkleo for making us push ourselves to new heights of crafting!!!

Uh Oh! Shocked  Team Ravenclaw is uniting through PMs in an effort to win the Quidditch House Cup.  Must gather fellow lions for the win!  Go Team Gryffindor!

Fear not brave Gryffindors, I'm already working on two projects!
