I picked up my squares again last night. Finished my sun/moon squares and attempted a tie-dye square:





I'm drawing a blank on future square subjects.

Just realized I never posted the bead soup I sent to MissingWillow:



Sorry about that! Smiley

Challenge: Bertie Botts Bean: Apple
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Branch Weaving
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Have you heard the fairy tale of The Three Weavers? Three daughters are given looms to weave their ideals of their prince. The interesting part of this story is how the influence of each girls' father affects how the daughters weave, and thus, how their weaving fits their respective princes. While this simple branch weaving is not necessarily reflective of my ideals, my father's influence, or my "prince," it is a sweet little piece inspired by a sweet little tale of guidance and the purity of ideals.

Class: Charms
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Wood-burned buttons
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: These buttons started out as plain wooden circles, but after permanently altering them with my dremel and wood burning tool, they became cool designed buttons.
Career Path Credit: Since these buttons are made from wood (which comes from tress, which are plants...), I would like to use this project as one of my plant-inspired projects for my herbologist career path.

Ah. Thanks for info on fiber content Ludi.

Here's mine!



It's small so I used embroidery floss and packaging/baker's twine. It's not perfect but I'm happy with it as a first attempt. Def want to try my hand at bigger!

Shout out to noodle-bug and the career office for seriously lighting a fire under my broom this semester! A few more classes/challenges to turn in! Headmistress, I did my best to alphabetize, but I'm not sure how you arrange the challenges vs the classes, so if you need me to rearrange, just say the word. Smiley

Challenge: Bertie Bott's Bean: Cherry
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Blue wood-burned pendant
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438581.new#new
Brief Description: Light and whimsical, this pendant is like a cherry blossom in its playfulness. Made for the STS swap, it's my hope that this pendant will fly to a new owner soon, in the continual cycle of make, give, and make again that mirrors our transient time on this earth (that's not too much of a stretch, right? Wink).

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Chinese Chickpeas
Project Page Link: Recipe Link
Brief Description: Did you know that most gnomes are vegetarians (#9!)?. This vegetarian twist on a traditional American-Chinese dish is sure to satisfy any garden gnome.

Challenge: March Detention
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Snow-dyed Fat Quarters
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: We've had a good winter here on the east coast for snow. I tried to take advantage and do as much snow dying as I could. The culmination of several months snow dyeing came to fruition yesterday when I cut all my dyed fabrics into fat quarters to be offered in the STS swap! Woohoo for progress!

Challenge: March Headmistress Challenge
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Green wood-burned pendant
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=438581.new#new
Brief Description: Balance is tricky for me when creating pieces. Too much of this, too little of that, too much on this side, not enough on that side - I'm always fiddling until the last moment. However, I'm actually happy with how this pendant perfectly balances several elements: wood, design, wrapped wire, beads, and cord. Everything comes together to create a balanced piece of art that you can wear!

28  Jewelry from Wood Scraps in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Abbeeroad on: March 21, 2015 11:53:03 AM
I put these under reconstructed since they are made from scraps of wood scrounged from Mr. Road's scrap bucket. A few tweaks with a drill and my woodburner, add some wire, cord, and beads - and voila! - something new from scraps.

I was inspired by the Fiber/Mixed Media Jewelry Swap hosted by sheepBlue, so if you haven't checked out that gallery yet, I highly encourage a visit!

Here are my newest pieces inspired by the swap:



Some close ups:





And here are the pieces I made for the swap itself:

For P_E_S_T:



Thanks for looking!!

J_Kieviet - I love your idea to replace shower bombs! The re-usability is genius! I would use them even when not sick - in fact, I just might make some for myself. Love it.

Class: Arithmancy
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Snow Dyed Fabrics
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Each snow dye experiment is just that - an experiment. I never know what the outcome will be. It is definitely a craft of surrendering expectations and control to the craft gods. I follow my muse in applying dye, and never have plan before-hand.
Project Pictures:

A "pre" pic:



And "post!" These are obviously different projects based on color outcomes - I may not know what to expect, but the laws of reality still apply!  Cheesy



Class: DADA
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Classic Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup
Project Page Link: For full recipe click here
Brief Description: In my hometown there is a small hole-in-the-wall diner called Spanky's that makes the best Beef & Tomato Macaroni Soup (and cheeseburger deluxes!). This recipe is so close I can almost pretend I'm home! Comforting and soothing on multiple levels!
Project Pictures:



Class: Herbology
SPEW: N/A
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Lotus Stamped Fabric
Project Page Link:N/A
Brief Description: The lotus symbol and its many meanings resonate very strongly with me for some reason. One of the many meanings behind the lotus flower is rebirth - both literal and figurative from a Buddhist perspective. To celebrate the lotus, springtime, and rebirth, I carved a lotus stamp from a soft lino block and stamped it onto a scrap of dyed fabric.
