Hey there all! So I finished my N.E.W.T. and had to wait for my partner to receive, which she did, and then I promptly forgot to post it!!

Here was my original post, since I see it wasn't added to the N.E.W.T. list on the front yet.
NEWT subject proposal: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Title: A Frozen Spectacular!
Description: I am in the Frozen swap and it requires a large medium and small items. For the large, I am going to make her 8 year old an Elsa costume that she could also use for special occasions or church as well as a costume for fun. I am going to make it with removable mesh sleeves and a removable cloak/cape. I am also going to crochet her daughter a pair of mittens like Anna wears when she is in her Winter outfit. I will be using the Afghan stitch because there is also embroidery on the back of each. Elsa has snowflakes in her hair and I am going to make barrettes and bobby pins for her daughter. If I do end up having extra time, I am going to make another pair of mittens for my partner herself. This will take me at least 5 weeks to complete as I am having to mash up several patterns together and adjust sizing on certain pieces. I have placed this under Arithmancy because I will have to do mega amounts of geometry on resizing and meshing the pieces together. As well, I will have to do math for the mittens in the pattern itself as well as the cross stitching on the back.

N.E.W.T. complete subject: Arithmancy
S.P.E.W.: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Title: A Frozen Spectacular!
Description: I was in a frozen swap and my partner specifically wanted a dress for her daughter. But she wanted it to where she could have it be a regular dress for special occassions, too. So I stitched one up (mega re-sizing and pattern matching) with a detachable cape so she can be just herself or Elsa! I also finished making a few snowflake barrettes and also added a snowflake ring so that it would look like she was producing snowflakes while she danced around. I attempted mittens. Boy I tried hard, but no matter how hard they kept coming up different sizes and I couldn't get them to match. I will include a photo to show but it's rather embarrassing and I scrapped that project. Instead, I did a wood burned sign of the Wandering Oaken's Trading Post and Sauna.
Here it all is!

I will start with my FAIL mittens and get those out of the way. I swear I know how to crochet and gauge and everything! I don't know what kept happening!

and now on to the good stuff!
Here are the barrettes I made:

the snowflake ring: It's hard to see in this picture. I used hot glue and a crapton of glitter. I fastened it to a length of copper wire and fixed the end to a ring.

the Wandering Oaken sign:

and the dress and cape:

Here's a link to the page where my partner posted what I sent her so you can see it on her daughter - it looks much better that way  Wink

Kookaloo, keep those brains in place! No more head banging! Unless you're dancing.

Finished one of my projects but am having stitching problems with the second project. It keeps wanting to ruffle on something that needs to stay flat. Very frustrating!

If you haven't fixed your ruffle problem yet, you could try running your project with a piece of paper underneath it. It should help prevent the ruffle but it will dull the needle sooner  Undecided

Teaser for Audania:

Yep, those are sparkles....

Ooooohhh! Pretty! Whatever could it be!?  I will drop a verbal hint for you, too: Apparently we both like crafting with sparkly things  Wink

Made some excellent headway on one of my projects!! I will be making more today during nap time and I think I may finish this one up tomorrow at the latest. I've things together for project 2 so I will be able to begin that while kiddos are up and about since it's not as sensitive as the other. Woot!

Its not a real quilt til there is at least two... Sweat , blood or tears.

Hubby has tried to forbid me using the rotary cutter a-after dark b- when im alone for extended periods or c- had more than two beers.

Sheesh one set of stitches and another two close calls and youd think i was a danger to myself. Im just trying to get crafting into the Xgames... Smiley

Oh my gosh! I love it!! lol Cheesy

I began one project at my sister's last night while babysitting since the beginning of it is semi-portable. I've another swap to wrap up first (like many of you  Wink ) . I'm nearly done with that though and should be able to get back to this one later this week.

I got a super huge chunk of the big item done today! I did another part for it too only to find that it doesn't quite work for this particular item. I am going to send it as an extra anyway because I think my partner will find a use for it with something else. I'm getting started on another of her items tonight and I hope to finish it either tonight or tomorrow!

I finished all of the other stuff I meant to finish just this morning lol. So that means full steam ahead on this swap!!  I have my supplies for tonights particular project ready and awaiting my children to go to sleep. This one will take a lot of time and I have to make sure its uninterrupted.  Wink I will also be able to begin part A of another craft. My goal is to have these two completed by Sunday before I begin the rest of bunny1's items  Roll Eyes 

Ooh, how intriguing!  I completed a couple of small things (yay me!) and I'm doing my best to squeeze extra minutes out of my days here and there.  I'm doing a lot of training and preparation for my first doTerra presentation in a couple of weeks.  I want to make sure I REALLY know my stuff so that I can answer questions.  That, my 9-5 job, and my family.... all taking big chunks out of my precious crafting time...! Tongue  Fingers crossed that I can get in some crafting tonight. Weekends are usually great crafting times for me, but because it's Expo season here in AZ, and I work for a carpet cleaning company, I am working THREE WEEKS STRAIGHT with no days off. And NO, my boss is not a total jerk (most days  Roll Eyes)... I'm banking those extra days worked into a paid vacation later this summer.  Wink But no question, it's going to be exhausting.  That vacation had better be worth it!  Grin

YIKES!!! That's a lot of work!! Try to get some down time in (a.k.a. sleep lol)!
