Subject; astronomy
House; ravenclaw
Project; quilt flimsy
It's super cute, right? I'm so proud of Tom! I made up about half the squares with him, but then I went on ironing & pinning duty (plus a hefty dose of advisory and showing on scrap fabrics); he planned out the details of layout and sewed all the rows then the final thing. I'm so proud that he did a great job and stuck with it!

And by my count... That's an Owl in every subject :-) :-) (yeah, I'm a nerd, big surprise!)

OWL PROPOSAL (of course!)
Subject HoM option 2
There are 3 quilt stages left, represented by 3 hp characters...
 - adding a layer of washing and baking fabric. The back is harry, of course, the backbone of the story. The wadding is Ron; he adds softness and comfort with his humor and family ties
 - adding the binding, representing Hermione, who's organisational skills give nice tidy edges, and who is often important for holding the other two characters together!
- also, unseen but vital to hold everything in place, the tieing together of the layers - the one and only j.k.rowling!

Class; apparition
House; ravenclaw
Project; another beehive tea cozy...

It holds onto the teapot, which holds onto tea :-)

hey, Mistress Jennie, what do you want us to about alphabetising NEWT & OWL submissions when we post them ? Because.....

NEWT submission...
subject; Divination
house: ravenclaw
a simple stocking stitch blanket, knitted (mostly) in 3 stripes then sewn up (mostly becasue there's one bit where two stripes amalgamate into one wider block of the same colour, so I knitted both stripes to that point and then joined them, then knit that last block as if they were one fat stripe)

plus, in lew of attached I-cord, a pile of unattached which I turned into a coaster to match the beehive teacozy I made my mum...

Annnnnnnnnd the now inevitable
Subject: DADA
house: ravenclaw
Project: Board Game bag
My cousin's partner love board games (as do my cousin & I, we embrace our inner nerd) , and goes off to his weekly 'meet' (aka down the pub with his friends) with a game all wrapped up in plastic bags to protect it from rain. So Cousin & I have decided that I will make him a special carry case for his birthday - to defend his games against rain & wear/tear damage, a sort of padded waterproof envelope. I'll draft a pattern & make it - I have a couple of ideas but that's the extent of it so far - and I have a month before I need to get it in the post to be with him in time!

3  Stripy Noro Knee Socks... in Knitting: Completed Projects by noodle-bug on: April 23, 2015 10:38:38 AM

I made these for my partner in the be awesome swap because I saw some of my other socks on her Pinterest :-) this was my first go at socks knitted on needles (I've only used a loom before) and I really liked it. I like how it's simple & small enough to do on the train, but the changing colours keep it fun.
I used two different noro colourways, from the tayio 4ply range, and this patternhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-socks
Though I made a few changes; simple ribbed top (instead of the enclosed elastic top it calls for) and I did 3 rows per stripe (not 4). Also, on the second sock I spaced out the reductions a little as I found it got a bit bunched on the first sock.

I'm really pleased with how they came out, and most important I think my partner (the fabulous and naturally awesome pottermouth - photo credits to her) likes them

Thanks for looking!

Since pottermouth received her swap parcel, I can share a photo my green-toed herbology Owl...

And a couple of projects from a bookbinding class I went to today...
Challenge; house pride
Project: practice book
It's a blue book... Doesn't get much more ravenclaw than that! The book is about 2 inches tall, tiny :-)

Class; charms
House ; ravenclaw
Project; Coptic stitched book
I used a (hopefully) permanent binding spell to keep these signatures together, and another to bind the paper to the billboard for the cover...

Challenge; March detention
House: ravenclaw
Project; hexie making & sorting
made about 15 hexies from the fabric pottermouth sent me.:-) and then ( with the approximately 150 unsorted hexies I had in need of putting away) I color sorted then into the collection... I'm planning on staying my big project with these over the summer, there's now just over 1000 here!

Thanks Tiamatfire, that's a really useful link :-) glad to hear the good need about you're son, too

Class; arithmancy
House; ravenclaw
Project; laptop case repair
This is the laptop case I made a couple of years or so ago, some of the seams were starting to go because I had been a bit skimpy with seam allowances.... And it's a hard used case!
I had the idea to use hexies from my stash to patch the needful places, bit instead of meticulously planning placement and choosing colours/ patterns , I incorporated uncertainty by just classing my eyes and taking a hexie from the drawer, seeing them on in turn as I pulled them out, so I didn't know at all how it would turn out... But I'm really happy with it :-)

7  My First Charm Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by noodle-bug on: April 06, 2015 05:23:54 PM

I won a charm bracelet making kit from mistress Jennie in they Harry potter craftalong (yhea yhea, blatant plug), which I used to put together this piece, I'm super proud of it add I've never done anything lower it before :-D
Jennie and I had discussed what charms and colours I'd like, I picked a theme based around the website mg friends and I met on (book crossing) since she always admired my own Jennie original bracelet so I knew she'd love her own (slightly knock off...) version. So really all I had to do was plan the layout of the charms and beads Jennie sent and assemble them - I especially enjoyed making up the bead pins and wrapping the wire around to attach them! I suspect my local bead shop might have find a new customer...
Thanks for looking! Cheesy

My phone often doesn't like the in-post upload tool, but if I go to my gallery it seems to upload from there fine - maybe yours is the same?

Class; herbology
House; ravenclaw
I win a charm bracelet making kit from mistress Jennie a few terms ago, and knew I.wanted to make a bracelet for my friend who always compliments me on my own Jennie original bracelet. I asked for a theme based around the website that my friend and I use together, bookcrossing, so the charms are all to do with reading and releasing books, and the colours are yellow, white and clear.
Jennie's instructions were great so I had fun trying a new craft and I think the result is pretty good - maybe next time I would try to balance a couple of the bead sizes better by not having the smallest next to the biggest! But I was really pleased for my first attempt, and I'm sure my friend will like it when I give it to her

10  Re: Be AWESOME (Redux) GALLERY! (Sendout March 23) in The Swap Gallery by noodle-bug on: March 26, 2015 05:33:19 PM
***meh, my computer is being smeggy, so I will have to upload picture pics separately and edit them in... If you're here in the 5 mins or so while I do that, please return to see!***

Ok, crafters, get your pinning fingers ready... This is gonna be a picture heavy but totally worth it poet, because my awesome from pottermouth is here, and, frankly, the word awesome is insufficient

Before I even unwrapped, there was this gorgeous little tag...

She me a travel hexie kit (since I'm collecting hexies) a bit like one I had pinned... But boy, did she run with the idea!

The whole thing, Inc beautiful hand pieced panel ...

Which opens up to reveal 3 pockets, in a super cute fun dotty fabric, and really sturdy with another hand pieced panel!

The front pocket had a needle book, with space for needles and long pins... Matching too the front fabric please note Wink

The middle pocket had a tool tin, fully lined...

And containing a tool kit...

And a little strawberry magnetic needle keeper (Even the lid is lined)

And the third pocket has another tin, this I've stuffed with super cute hexies in just the right size :-)

And some fabric to make a few more of my own (shown here with the kit from the tool kit)

You can imagine my reaction opening this up, . An everything kept revealing new amazing details... Thank you so much pottermouth!!
