spew-yes, youth group trip
house -gryffindor
project- shrink charm basket

our youth group is having a silent basket auction to raise money to attend a confrence. my daughter wanted to make a basket with shrinky dink charms, so we teamed up. she made the charms, and i made the bases for them. we ended up with 3 simple crochet bookmarks, along with a necklace and braclet crochet with ladder yarn. will see how the auction goes tommorow, and i'll get a better picture of the necklace on a model.

project-muse prayer flag

my partner recieved her flag today! the word was 'muse' i found this starry night fabric that i love, but it didn't quite fit, so i put and iron on backing on it, cut it apart and ironed it back down.

 i had this idea of the moon being in love with the stars, so i embroidered a face onto white felt, and some glass beads for sparkle.

class-febuary headmistress challenge-pin all the things!
project-hummingbird prayer flag

as part of the prayer flag swap, we were asked to make one for ourselves. my word was 'peace'. i had found this image on pinterest of a bird and flower, and had adapted it to make a stencil for a totebag for my grandmother last fall.

i reused the stencil, and changed the image by adding a more flowers, and making the bird look more hand painted. i also gold highlights. i embroidered my word, and attatched it to a pale green background.

house gryffindor
project- femininity prayer flag

This is actually the first prayer flag i've ever made. I have 4 more in the prayer swap, and i'm anxiously waiting for them to arrive with their new owners. if they aren't recieved by the end of the semester i may have to submit secretly.

traditionally they are meant to be hung outside, but modern ones can be more finished and kept inside for inspiration. femininity meant grace and strength to me. i started with a flower drawn with inktense pencils, then i liked the reverse side where it had bled through better, so i used it as the background for the woman in a pose from my yoga class. i also did the crochet piece on the bottom.

i recieved from cmarion today! this is the second i've recieved in the swap, and both have suited me really well. the word for this one is 'perseverace'

the green fabric and the trees are actually the quilt in my bedroom. nice match! the tag said "shoot for the moon"

the close up picture shows the variety of thread she used to give it texture. and those signature green glass beads! thanks so much

class/challenge-january detention
project-chocolate pecan pie

i love to bake cookies, and cakes, but i'm not a big pie baker. pecan is one of my favorites, and i've had this recipe stuck on my fridge for awhile, Chocolate Pecan. a friend from church was doing a lesson on pie crust at our church ladies night, so i decided it was time to give it a try. the crust used oil instead of butter so it mixed up easily. it was really flaky, but we didn't like the flavor of it so i'll have to try again with a diffrent crust recipe. the filling was really good though so i'll pass along that recipe....

chocolate pecan pie

1 cup light or dark corn syrup
 3 eggs
1/2 cup sugar

2tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cup pecans

1 cup chocolate chips

combine syrup eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla in blender and mix well. add pecans and chocolate and pour into unbaked pie crust. cover edges of crust with foil and bake at 325 for 60 minetes. i used white sugar, but a lot of pecan pies use brown so i may try that next time. it might bake longer than 60 minetes, it should be set in the center and a knife comes out clean. cool 60 minetes before serving if you can wait that long Smiley

project-tardis quote

Dr. Who travels in a time machine, disquised as a bright blue police box. my daughter liked the project i did for the 4x6 art swap, this fall

but she wanted a tardis instead of a character, so this is the variation on that theme-

this one is an 8x10, in colored pencil on grey matboard. the background looks more tan in the photo. she was really happy with it.

since p_E_S_T is off on her african adventure, i'll go ahead and post the flag that i sent to her.

the word was 'femininity'. i painted a flower in ink, and i loved the reverse side more than the front, so i continued working on the back. the figure is a yoga pose from a class i'm taking. i thought it showed grace and strength. i also crochet the piece at the bottom.

seuude- i love all the textures on the hufflepuff card!

spew-yes, church dinner
project-oodles of egg noodles

we had several projects we worked on at our church ladies night. they are hosting a dinner this spring, and planned on serving chicken and noodles. very popular around here. i don't usually make my own noodles, so this was a learning experience. this was a massive batch, so i have a scaled down recipie. we mixed, kneaded, and rolled out the dough. then cut it in strips and placed it on cookie sheets to dry. it can be cooked fresh, but for this project,the dried noodles were bagged and frozen until the dinner.

egg noodles

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 baking powder

4 egg yolks

sift dry ingredients. beat eggs, and gradually add to dry ingredients. as it forms a ball, place on counter sprinkled with flour and continue to kneed in dry ingredients, but don't fold. should become quite stiff. cut into quarters. take a section and roll it out to 1/4 inch thickness. use a pizza cutter to cut into strips.

 place on a cooling rack to dry for 1/2 hour or overnight. at this point you can cook in boiling broth for 5-7 minutes, or place in plastic bags and freeze until ready to use.

the woman in charge of this project saved the egg whites and was making angel food cake to go along with the noodles.

i recieved from augustbell yesterday. the battery in my camera is dead, so i had to use my phone. the picutures don't really show how cute it is. some people don't like peanut butter, but it's my favorite, so i love the valentines wand.

the valentine has magonagal at her best. she's my favorite teacher, kind, but tough when she needs to be. this made me laugh.

 and the hoopla,hermionie with her feather and wand! it's so sweet, and background fabric has some sparkle

augustbell, thank you for your thoughtfull work!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: astronomy
SPEW: n/a
Project Name:phoenix suncatcher
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: my partner just recieved this for the i love harry potter swap, so now i can post it! i've really enjoyed working with translucent shrink film, and experimenting with layers and how the light comes through. technically it's plastic, but it has the effect of painted glass.

i left the front side shiny, and wrote a quote from dumbledore in black sharpie. then, i sanded the backside and drew the phoenix with colored pencil

class/challenge-bertie botts banana
project-ron/hermionie valentine

along with the suncatcher, i sent my partner this valentine. ron and hermionie have such a quirky relationship it makes me smile. i put their pictures from the yule ball on the front,

and added some of my favorite quotes from then on the inside.

like that moment ron realizes that hermionie is a girl, or when hermionie compares ron to a teaspoon.

i really love it. it suits me so well, and the colors go really well with my house. thank you so much!
