Ok, so Ive done it again. I took a break.  We were out of town, and then out of town again, and then I had to cram a couple of last Christmas projects that I finished on Christmas Eve of all times! I tell myself every year that Im never going to do that again and, low and behold! It happens again. Go figure.
There is currently too much awesomeness in the thread over the last two weeks to comment on, but I am in love with everything. I love Pinkleos OWL proposal, the snow flakes, the seasick crocodile and especially all of the koi! That floor painting sounds amazing!
I will be posting a crap-ton of projects in a few days, now that all of the Christmas craziness is over. I do have a bit more craziness coming up my daughter is turning 6!! Weird! When did that happen!? And I am making all of the goodie bag items, so I am thrilled to post those when I finish. Great fun!
Anywho, Im praying you all have a very fantastic and SAFE New Years!

oh very nice!! Love the queen of hearts outfit and the last skirt too. That print is fabulous! I can see why you didn't resist lol. Do you follow a pattern for your skirts or do you draft them yourself?

So, I'm thinking that a day gone equals a page and a half of catching up to do and I had 6 pages to go through! I can't even comment on everything except to say that it all looks fantastic! I'm really keen on the elderberry syrup. Where did you find elderberries?!

I am also loving the stationary and the scarves! That cupcake is adorable!

In my OWL news, until today I was still plugging away at writing up all of those recipes. Then I was stupid and got my thumb caught in my sewing machine and bruised the bone so I won't be writing for a few days. That's just as well - I need to finish my youngest's night gown and a few cross stitch ornaments before wrapping everything. Shouldn't take long. I can only do the nightgown while she's asleep at night, so I'm hoping to be done tomorrow night or the night after. The ornaments are whenever during the day, so I'm really excited at how *early* I've gotten all of my Christmas stuff done...

I'm hoping to get a thing or two done for Diagon Alley within the few days after Christmas, so I'll chat more about it later.

and Aunt Bee, you crack me up.... still lol. I don't know anything about quilting. I did my first (and probably only, ahem) for when my niece was born. I made up the pattern, stitched it together and appliqued butterflies on top. Got it all put together, then when it came time to stipple it, my machine decided it didn't like the quilting foot that came with it. Can you say stitch in the ditch?  Anyway, at least I knew what colors she wanted (shabby-chic lilacs and sages). And that totally sucks about not getting done for Christmas. But that is what August birthdays are for, right?  Roll Eyes lol. Anyway, I am sure you will get it all settled long before then and good luck my friend!

I sent to HotBananaPepper quite a while ago but I know she hasn't been able to post pictures so I will post what I sent her. I also received from her this last week!
Ok, here is what I sent to her, based off of a passage in the books on when the Weasley twins grabbed a garden gnome, painted him gold, slapped a tutu on him and glued wings to his back "the ugliest angel Harry had ever seen." lol, I need to make one for me Cheesy

I love him!!

And this is what I received! I only had my phone, so I'm afraid it's not a great picture but the ornament is wonderful! I really love it and I know it's based off of one in m pinterest.  Thank you so much HotBananaPepper!!

everything you made is nice, fiber! I espescially love the quidditch gloves!

Audania, very lovely bags! Are they tricky to make??

Not too tricky! The worst part was doing the math for the side triangle pieces  Roll Eyes . I suck at math and pity my children when they get into higher education and are asking for help from me lol. I used a quarter inch drill bit for the holes for the straps, buttons, and loop and I think next time I would go a tiny bit bigger. It's pretty touch to squeeze so much fabric into that little space - especially the wool one (black).  It's a basic remove the book pages (and gift with book purse Wink )and drill holes. Measure four triangle pieces and sew two together with right sides facing; flip to right side out and top stitch. Measure main book sides with an extra half inch on each side that you iron under, glue the triangle pieces to the sides. Measure two straps 24" long and 3" wide that you fold in half, right sides facing, and stitch along long cut edge only. Flip to right sides out and attach one strap by sliding through one hole in a corner and glue down once you have only an inch inside. Repeat for other strap. I braided a piece of yarn for the loop and inserted it the same way as the strap, only insert second side back into same hole and knot at the hole to keep it from coming out before gluing end pieces down inside. I also attached my button closures with yarn as well. Then glue in the rectangular pieces. My spine was 1" wide and 6" long so I cut a piece of cardboard to that size and a piece of fabric 2" wide and 7" long. I glued that strip to the cardboard and then the whole bit to the inside of the purse to keep it all looking nice and neat.

Whew! I think that was all. Let me know if you have any questions!
