ooo...I have the PERFECT item for Detention with Lockheart!!

I bought this button AGES ago at a bead expo - I think it was over a year ago (all the bead expos blend together) that I bought it.

Here's a pre-craft pic, just for fun:

Now to figure out what to do with it.

Yay for Advanced Studies Fridays! This Friday snuck up on me! I must be busy at work or something...

I love seeing everyone's in progress pics!

And thanks for the reminder, Jennie! I like a little bit of pressure, but most of all, the HPC is just a fun source of inspiration. And I WILL get those Horcruxes!! Wink

NEWT Progress:

Here's my larger stack of ironed squares:

And the start of my journey in interfacing:

I'm not being very efficient with placing. I've already run out of interfacing! I'm going to sew together what I have and see how it looks before I get some more.

Awesome, awesome flags!! Love the swirly tree with the little houses and the yarn texture one!!

I received this lovely flag from Eiseldora:

Even the back is finished nicely:

I'm going to pay more attention to the backs of my flags next round. Thanks so much, Eiseldora! I love it!

Maman - LOVE the little owl sweater. Can't wait to see you little one in it!

sakuracat23 - What an awesome book! I've not been terribly successful with bookbinding, yours looks great!!

pottermouth - We have very similar NEWTs! It will be fun to work on my quilt while someone else works on theirs. It's a craftalong within a craftalong! Wink

Speaking of which...Yay for Advanced Studies Fridays!! Here's my NEWT progress for the day. It's not much, but I've started sorting out all my t-shirt squares. After Hurricane Irene, I had to wash all my squares, which resulted in this jumbled mess:

So, I've been slowly ironing my way through the pile to create a nice, orderly stack of squares:

I hope to have a bigger stack to show off later today.

pottermouth - are you interfacing your shirts for your quilt? I've got some shirts of varying weight, and I think I want to interface them to keep them from stretching weird while sewing. But I don't know what interfacing to use. I'd prefer some sort of fusible stuff so that I'm not sewing squares onto squares (yuck), but also don't want to spend a fortune for this project.

The first round of interfacing was a relatively cheap iron-on version from walmart that promptly fell off upon washing the squares. So, I don't think I want to use the same stuff for this round.

Any suggestions??

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Personalized Cross Stitches
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: I don't find cross stitch particularly confusing, but creating the patterns for the people on graphing paper did prove a bit trickier than first imagined. I used Martha Stewart's tutorial and templates. The kids in particular were difficult and I still think making a three-year-old is impossible. No matter what, the kids came out too tall or all looking the same age. My one attempt at downsizing really just made the kid look skinnier (which he actually is, so it turned out ok). Anyway, the recipients of these two stitched families were very happy with the outcomes, and my son keeps asking when I'm going to make him. I think I know what I'm doing for family X-mas ornaments next year. I think I'll start now!
Project Pictures:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Hanging Towels
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: Both my mom and my grandmother received these towels for X-mas this year. I got the pattern free online here.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Stuffed Artichokes Cartisano
Project Page Link (if available): N/A
Brief Description: These remind me of my mom, which remind her of her grandmother. My mom and I both made them this year, and since we weren't together for the holidays, it helped us feel a little closer to both be making the same family recipe.
Project Picture:


2 cups plain breadcrumbs
1/2 cup parsley
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon minced onion
1-2 cloves garlic
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 large artichokes
4 tablespoons olive oil

Mix breadcrumbs, parsley, cheese, onion, salt, and pepper. Clean and prepare artichokes. Spoon mixture into opened artichoke leaves. Place in saucepan and sprinkle with oil. Add 1-2 inches of water and garlic cloves. Cover and cook on low 2-4 hours until leaves fall off. (This is actually more detail than my mom's written recipe, which is based on memories of her grandmother making them. I still had a million questions while making them!).

January Extra Credit

Introducing the Gryffindor Lionalong!

*Gryffindor Students Only Please*

Through the month of January, Gryffindor students who incorporate a lion in any way into their coursework will be awarded one Gryffindor Ruby. This "lionalong" should not disrupt students from completing their regular coursework, but rather should serve as a source of added inspiration. Students may incorporate as many lions as they wish into their coursework all through January. There is no limit to the number of rubies a student may achieve. If students incorporate more than one lion into one course, they will receive one ruby for each lion created/crafted. For example, if you create three lions for Arithmancy, you will receive course credit and THREE rubies. Lions created outside regular coursework will still receive ruby recognition, but will not be eligible for course credit or house points. As Head of Gryffindor House, I will be magically tracking the number of rubies achieved by each individual Gryffindor student during the month of January only to determine the next Gryffindor of the Month. Good luck and happy lion-ing.

**Special thanks to pinkleo for this month's Extra Credit idea**
