House Pride: RavenclHouse Pride
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: My updated sewing basket
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: I had and old basket that I had been using as my sewing basket, but needles and pins kept falling out, erc.  My dg (annoying baby sister) colored on the lid and it looked absolutely awful.  So I spray painted the lid Ravenclaw blue and put a liner inside.  It looks so much better now.  It really perks me up!

Class/Challenge/House Pride:History of Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Cabbage Noodles
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: There were many days, as I was growing up, when we had meals that contained no meat (during the 40's and 50's) and this meal is one of my favorites.  My mother always let me help her cook when I was little and in high school, she made sure that I took Home Economics (sewing and cooking as well as other "home" type things).  One of my projects was to do all the cooking for the family for six weeks.  Needless to say it was not hard, since I already knew how to cook.  This meal contains cabbage, wide egg noodles, butter, oil, and salt and pepper (to taste).  There are no "real" measurements... I just "play it by ear". This feeds six.  The steps are:
  1.  Shred a head of cabbage (I LOVE cabbage)
  ** Optional:  Sprinkle salt on the cabbage and mix (about 1 tbs) This will help pull out the excess water from the cabbage.
  2.  Put a small amount of oil in the frying pan along with 2 pats of butter
  3.  Cook noodles in boiling water until done to your taste
  4.  While noodles are cooking, saute the cabbage.  It will start to turn color as it cooks.
  5.  Drain noodles and add to cabbage. 
  6.  Salt and pepper to taste.
This is in remembrance of my mother and DAD who were married over 56 years (and I never heard them argue).

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Bean - Strawberry
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Strawberry Suncatcher
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: I have just begun learning stained glass making and the strawberry seemed like a wonderful project to try.  So here it is.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Spring Tulip
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: This is the first piece I made as I began to study stained glass construction.  It has seven parts.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House:
Project Name: Ravenclaw
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: The arithmancy class requires we construct something with 8 parts.  My college bird was a cardinal and while looking online at stained glass, I found a picture of a cardinal with 8 pieces.  So I copied the picture, made a pattern, cut the glass to fit, foi8led it and soldered it.  It turned out rather nice as a suncatcher.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name: Windchime for the fairies
Project Page Link:  none
Brief Description: While working on another project, I saw an old (and I DO mean old!) windchime.  It was so old that it was beginning to fall apart.  The only thing it had going for it was that the chimes were gold.  So I took it, painted parts of it red, and attached a red suncatcher to make the chimes work.  I hope the fairies will like it.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Bean - envelope glue
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Glue for Maddy
Project Page Link (if available): pennilessparenting. com
Brief Description: Maddy keeps wanting to make envelopes to send things in.  She usually uses tape but since this bean was envelope glue, we decided she needed glue (that wouldn't hurt Ily if she got hold of it) so she could learn to make envelopes.  This website was a BIG help.  We keep the glue in the fridge so it won't mildew (I'm allergic).  Only three ingredients... water, flour, and sugar... and it works!  See the orange envelope we made to send Charlie a picture. Oh! We added 2 drops of red food coloring so the glue would be pink, and we glued the label on the jar.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Botts Bean - sugar violet
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Victorian dream catcher square
Project Page Link:  http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com/patterns/victorian_dream_square.php

Brief Description: I have always loved dream catchers and when the bean said to craft something inspired by the Victoria times well, it just came to me.  This was a different kind of crochet for me.  I had never done some of the stitches.  I am happy with the finished project.  I may make more of these and make a lapghan or maybe a pillow cover.

Just a note... MidkiffsJoy was trying to post about six projects when her phone quit on her. All her pictures and info is stored on her phone.  So she just finally gave up and went to bed (crying). Hopefully, next semester will be better.

Project Name: Contain the Floo Powder

Brief Description: I decided to make a container to store my newly acquired Floo Powder.  I took an old box that I found and searched for pictures that pertained to the powder.  Instructions are on the inside.. they are as follows:

Congratulations:  You have discovered Floo powder.

When you travel by Floo powder, it is imperative that you speak clearly.  Take care to get out at the right grate.  Keep your elbows tucked in, shut your eyes, dont fidget and dont panic.
