Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Sparkly Skulls
Brief Description: I'm getting ready for Halloween and so, with a simple charm, I made these sparkly skulls. I think they'll look great in the dungeons ... as long as we keep them away from any Nifflers!

P.S. Great job on your mitts and cacti Ant Bee!

P.P.S. I love the Firefly in a Jar AllyCatAria!

Class: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Free Hugs!
Brief Description: Inspired by a pin I added to my embroidery board ages ago, I made this cute little cactus hoop. I'm really happy with how it turned out - especially the handwriting! It's a big improvement from my first embroidery ... ^_^ Here's the inspiration link: http://www.craftysheep.net/2012/03/21/cacti-need-love-too/

I've been loving everyone's projects - I think this is the best thread on Craftster! ^_^

Class: Defence Against the Dark Arts
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A Clove A Day
Brief Description: For this craft I was inspired by a new Muggle saying that I learnt, and my love of garlic-infused foods - yum! ^_^ Everyone knows that Vampires have an aversion to garlic, and remembering this simple fact could one day save your life! ~_^

Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: My Sunshine
Brief Description: I love flying - and today was a perfect day for it! The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze, and the grounds looked lovely far below me ^_^ So I thought I would craft something featuring the sun and one of my favourite songs to sing (badly) to my husband ~_^ I used a pattern from Urban Threads. This is my first hoopla, and I'm really pleased with how it turned out ^_^

Challenge: Reducio
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Mustard yellow Blythe Hat
Brief Description: I was practicing a spell to make a crochet hat, but something went seriously wrong - it turned out tiny! But, happily it is just the right size for a Blythe doll, so it's still going to get some use ^_^

Challenge: Detention with Snape
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Haberdashery storage
Brief Description: I started altering this storage box ages ago, but had only done the first coat of wood stain! But with Snape looming over me I found the motivation to finish it - and finish it quick! ~_^

I can't wait for next semester - the O.W.L. challenges look great! ^_^ I wish I had made a Portkey so I could have finished all of the challenges for this semester ... maybe next time! ^_^

Challenge: Sorting Hat
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Slytherin uniform cup cosy
Brief Description: I like to have a cup of tea in the afternoon at work, but my cup is always too hot to handle. So, I crocheted this cosy which is meant to look like the Hogwarts uniform as worn by Slytherin House. I'm not totally happy with it, but I'm not sure how to improve it. Suggestions are welcome! ^_^

P.S. I love your web necklace teag! ^_^

Class: Defence Against the Dark Arts
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Time Flies
Brief Description: My greatest fear is wasting my life, or putting things off too long, and then realising one day that I'm an old lady and I haven't accomplished all that I set out to do. Ha ha, I guess it makes sense that I'm in Slytherin now, doesn't it? ~_^ If you'd like to hear more about how I made it, you can go to my blog (http://teaandcraft.blogspot.com.au/) but you can probably work it out mostly just by looking at it ^_^

Class: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Alma's Birthday Scarf
Brief Description: My Nana Alma turns 85 this year and I wanted to make her something special that would help her remember the times that she grew up in. Nana was born in 1927, which was quite a different world from 2012, and so I used the digitized version of the newspaper from the day she was born to create this desin which I then had printed onto cotton silk using Spoonflower. I really like how it turned out, and I hope Nana likes it too ^_^

I'm still loving everyone's creations ... I can't believe the semester is almost over! ; _ ; But I'll definitely be back in Fall!

Class: Follow the Spiders challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Glittery Spider Fascinator
Brief Description: I made this fascinator so I have something pretty to wear on Halloween ^_^ I now have black glitter all over me and my home, but it looks good so that's the main thing, right? ^_^

Class: Arithmacy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Twisty Fibonacci Cowl
Brief Description: This cowl is not that great, and the photo is even worse. I used 100% wool in a mustard colour and I learnt how to purl and use circular needles so I could create a ribbed pattern using the Fibonacci sequence. I'm going to make another one of these, and try not to make so many mistakes.

Almost done! Only four challenges to go ^_^

Oh, I love that snitch wristwatch! ^_^

I finished some more projects tonights ... the photos aren't great because it's too dark outside to take pictures so I did them inside.

Class: Keeper Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Ninni Monster
Brief Description: Last year I made one Ninni monster which I sent to the Mirabel Foundation Christmas Toy Drive (they give the toys to children who are in foster or relative care because their parents have addictions) and I thought I would make another to donate this year. And now I've finished it! Yay! ^_^

Class: Cheering Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Huzzah for Slytherin!
Brief Description: I made some washi-style tape using scrap-booking paper and double-sided tape which I then attached to grey cotton string by folding it over in half and then I cut them into bunting shapes. I used some jewellery clasps that one squeezes to hold string/ wire (I have no idea what they are called) to join the string to a lobster clasp. I'm going to wear it at Quidditch matches to cheer on Slytherin House! ^_^

Yay Slytherin!

Hi everyone! I've been in the Hospital Wing for a while; I came down with a bad case of the Hippogriff Flu. I'm a lot better now though, so Madam Pomfrey let me out so I could play some Quidditch! Well, I *say* "let" ... let's not go into that.

Class: Beater Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Macrame Owl
Brief Description: I've wanted to try macrame for a long time, so this challenge was the perfect opportunity! I used 2 ply cotton thread and an old bracelet to make this purple owl. I'm not totally happy with how it turned out, but I will definitely do macrame again sometime.

Class: Chaser Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: String Art
Brief Description: String Art is another technique I hadn't tried before! I used an old chopping board, metallic charcol spray paint, upholstery tacks, and red wool. I chose an ampersand because it's one of my favourite puncuation marks ^_^

Class: Broomstick Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Firebolt
Brief Description: I used Adobe Illustrator to vectorise some of my hand-lettering and apply ink effects to make this poster for the new Firebolt (well, not so new now, but you know what I mean).

Class: Seeker Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A Flutter of Snitches
Brief Description: I made these snitches from ping-pong balls, spray paint, feathers, a lot of hot glue, and a secret spell to make them fly ~_^ They're hard to get a photo of when they're all fluttering about ... I'm going to tether them to my tree this holiday season ^_^

I've really been enjoying everyone's projects! There have been so many added since I became ill that I don't think I can name all my favourites though! So I'll just say this ...

Go Slytherin! ~_^
