One more new bracelet this morning. My husband and I are both avid readers. If I'm not reading, then I'm listening to audio books while crafting, or searching for new books at the library. This bracelet is my ode to libraries and the lovely librarians who work so hard every day to help us learn, explore and grow. It features 17 Tibetan silver charms, and a mix of glass, Czech glass, stone, crystal and freshwater pearl beads in shades of plum, parchment, and copper. The charms include tiny books, reading glasses, pen nibs, open books, computer, large books, chapter book with glasses, library, fountain pen & pencil, newspaper, and a stack of books.
I love sushi. I mean, really love it. I crave it throughout the week. Sometimes I dream about it. So it was inevitable that I'd make a sushi charm bracelet. It contains 9 silver charms, including tiny fish, sushi plates, chop sticks and rolls, a saki bottle and large fish. 6 beautiful handmade lampwork glass pieces of sushi, and a fresh mix of Czech glass beads and stone beads in shades of bright red, golden yellow, wasabi green, jet black and clear.
Mistress Jennie: I did the Choose Your Champion Challenge as well. I made Sushi Rice and Edamame for Japan (its on pg 24). Just wanted to be sure that my team gets the points just in case my project got overlooked. Thanks
Don't worry, you got the points. You just missed the list within that post when I was scrolling through the mega huge spreadsheet I use to keep track of House Points.
For everyone whose ever wondered what it's like to track House Points and projects, here's a screen cap of my House Point spreadsheet, reduced down until the whole thing fits on the screen. Usually, I can only see about 1/4 of it at a time while updating it, because it is so big and contains so much information. This is why I ask that people use the project header, and why I ask people to put multi-project posts in alphabetical order. Scrolling around this thing is a pain!

gaudiknight, your angel food cake looks lovely, and it sounds so good with summer berries. Please remember however, that in order to receive House Points for a cooking project, you must post the recipe in the thread, or provide a link to the complete recipe that you used if you found it on the web. This rule is listed on the first page of the HPC thread, and it was discussed very recently within the thread. Here's a quote of the questions & answers...
#2. Please know that anytime you submit a food as a craft, you MUST submit the complete recipe in order to earn House Points.
If we post a link to the recipe on a different website in the "Project Page Link" section of the header, does that fulfill the recipe requirement, or do we need to re-type it here?
Good question Mr. Vincent! Posting a link to a complete recipe does fulfill the requirement. It must have a list of ingredients and full directions, rather than a vague or meandering description. Your link above is perfect.
