It looks so good at night! I hadn't considered that. I'm glad the size worked out

project-towel hanger

I sent this to my partner in the Burrow swap. the crochet towel hanger wraps around the oven handle and buttons in place, then you slip your towel through the loop. i even did it in her slytherin colors!

class/challenge-house unity
project-kitchen cloth

with the remaining yarn, i also crochet a dishtowel. i had a bit of trouble with the pattern, it was supposed to look a bit more starshaped. the color is still great though, slythern silver and green, with a bit of neon thrown in

project-hogwarts curtain

This was also sent to ErinAquaheart  in the Burrow swap. in her survery she talked about needing curtains, but her color scheme wasn't traditional house colors. I was a bit stuck at first, then i found this white canvas curtain and the idea came together. I dyed the curtain with teal tie dye to create the sky, then painted the castle outline in pinks and purples. i don't have a picture of it hanging at her house yet, but this is an in process picture hanging from my curtain rod....

project-unicorn patch

she also had care of magical creatures on her wish list, so a transfigured felt and embroidery floss into a unicorn

class-june detention
project-hypogriff patch

I also created a buckbeak patch, with his wings spread to show off those feathers

In the end, those patches and the curtain wanted to be a set, so after much pondering, I tacked them on. the result was a bit curtain, a bit tapestry, but a lot of quirky fun. so much better than where i started.

this arrived from JKaywiz a couple days ago, i'm just having a long week, so I just got my pictures taken tonight, and off course they are all sideways...ugh try and fix that tomorrow.

love the patches, and linen extras..those feminine beads are just calling to be made into a new bracelet. thanks so much!

the first patch is nice and big. I love the way she stitched the veins on the felt leaves. I wish her careful work showed up better in the photo

the second one made me smile. we both had made snitch patches with a button. her's is more funky and playful that mine.

project-paper arks

I was leading crafts during vacation bible school earlier this  summer. it was a noah's ark theme, and it was challenging to find projects that would work for diffrent age groups. I found several diffrent printable boats that you cut, folded, and glued together. these were my samples.

the one on the right looked cool, but was more difficult than expected to fit together. the kids enjoyed the other 2 variations though.

project-snitch patch

I think the bright yellow border ties nicely with the yellow button i used to create this golden snitch patch

class-defense against the dark arts
project-suspension bridge patch

I sent this in the tesha moore patch swap. my partners themes were all scientific, so i embroidered a suspension bridge onto this swirled fabric that reminded me of water.

project-telescope patch

i have so much fun making these patches, and as small as they are it's easy to tuck them into my bag to work on when i'm stuck waiting somewhere. this one was also for a scientific theme. i thought the swirled fabric made a fun background for my embroidered telescope.

head mistress challenge-mirror of erised
house -gryffindor
project-willow tree

I usually prefer colored pencils, but our library had an open night where you could bring your kids and free paint. there was a willow tree outside the window, so I painted this just for fun. I like it, but i'm wishing I had just filled the canvas with leaves. It was fun to try something new, without much of a plan just for the joy of doing it.

I got home from an appointment today, and this huge box from erinaquaheart was waiting by my door. she got all of it just right. now the swap anxiety is kicking in, hoping she enjoys her package just as much! check out the spoiling!

a clock for my kitchen was on my wishlist, this gryffindor clock is just perfect. 

 I had pictures of my remodeled kitchen on facebook and it fits in perfectly with my plate collection. it's on a plate stand until my husband can get up there with a hammer and hang it on the wall. 

the other part of my wishlist, was something to organize and decorate my craftroom. ACCIO NOTIONS!
loving this ribbon wrapped sewing box, with the padded top

it has some paperwrapped boxes, and extras tucked inside

i also found this felt owl banner, it's hard to get a good picture, but the closeup is adorable.

all the goodies! there was also scrapbooking paper, and beads....the beading kit seems to have walked off with one of the kids before the picture was taken..

thank you so much! everything is so thoughtful, and well made. i know you were a little stuck at the begining, but you did a great job!

audio- i am loving the fin patch, it's minimal but you know excactly who it is, and the cool fabric on the back adds just the right punch.

sheepblue- the lazy susan is amazing. what do you use around the mosaic? can you recommend a good tutorial? i       broke some old saucer this week, but didn't know how to work with a curved surface instead of a tile with a flat back.
