I love the drunken bee! I hope everytime you spot him on the finished item, he makes you laugh :-)

Lovely necklace naantje!
And new that you've received the hoop i made you for the end of term feast last term, i can post it here :-)

Challenge; house unity
House; ravenclaw
Naantje asked for a hoop featuring hermione, and the insult from when snape calls her an 'insufferable know it all' - only Naantje wanted to frame the insult as an achievement :-)
So i created the hermione award, celebrating the ravenclaw side of a famous gryifindor, mounted on hufflepuff yellow and surrounded by laurels in slytherin green. This demonstrates that by embracing the qualities of all the houses that we each have inside us, we become stronger, more rounded people - and especially we can turn what other people may see as weakness and worthy of insult, and use it as good.

Class; arithmancy
House; ravenclaw
Happy Easter! My friend has a bit of a rough weekend ahead visiting some people who she doesn't get on too well with,  and i know she's dreading it. I have a spare key to her house, so after she left i let myself in and set up an egg hunt around her lounge for her to come home too, to remind her that we love her and to cheer her up. There were 8 clues and 8 eggs to find

Loving all your work guys (and will certainly be checking out the hogwarts rpg!)
Couple of classes to turn in, since swap parcels have been received!

Class; Apparition
House: ravenclaw
Project; old John hoop
This 'folly' atop a hill near my parents house is a familier sight... But i had always assumed that it was closed to public access - it wasn't until i was researching to get photos for this hoop that i found out it's not! So i am now planning a walk to visit it next time i have a weekend up north

Class; transfiguration
House; ravenclaw
Project: old John card
I also researched the bats who live in the same park (i will try to spot some when i go), and included them in this view

Challenge; da patronus charm
Spew; retirement home raffle donation
House: ravenclaw
Visiting my nan recently, i saw that the home she is in were asking for donations of raffle prizes; so i knitted a pair of bedsocks to be given away :-)

there are some beautiful hoop here - forgive my not commenting individually, I've been at my parents the last week or so with only my phone for internet and it's really hard to type!

But.... my hoop from Ludi arrived Cheesy
I love it, so so much - it's based on my theme suggestion of those maps you find at the beginning of fantasy books, which I love - and specifically it's based on the one in Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books, which is a map of Fiction Island... with some lovely Ludi twists and so beautifully done

isn't it gorgeous. look how crisp the lettering is, and the gorgeous mermaid shading....

anyone else having trouble uploading photos? craftster was telling me it's the wrong file type, but I triple checked it - and it's the same camera / laptop etc as I've used before. weird. anyway, I had to use flicker, which is ok but not as handy.. wondering if it's just me?

Those needle cosies are such a good idea - I've been driving myself mad trying to find small enough elastic bands to hold really thin dpns together!

Completed Newt
Subject: Herbology
And; Team Dobby
House: ravenclaw
Project: Coffee Pot
Inspired by teesha Moore patches, this coffee pot is constructed from little stuffed and embroidered patches.

I'm really happy with how it came out Cheesy

but... that said... I totally messed up at one point; having made each piece individually, I came to sew them together and found that the central band was too short! I ummed over making a new one and in the end decided to make a pocket instead, using the gap as the pocket  hole - to store secret notes or hidden treasure in Smiley so, I filled the pot with coffee beans and put a note in the pocket before handing it over to the recipient
(annoyingly blurry picture)
So, this mess up and subsequent adaptation / save is my entry to Team Dobby!
