Challenge: bean - earthworm
House; ravenclaw

Slytherin treasure hunt; 1 (buddy system), 3 (parseltounges unite), 7 (vanishing cabinets), 14 (potion perfect)

Project;

I feel in love with this hat pattern and was happy to find that the pattern was really simple (unexpectedly easy, some world say) so I had a happy couple of afternoons vanishing yarn and appearing hat

They'd no shaping or anything, it's just a worm like (or, indeed, snake like) tube of rib with a tie around the top - I added button holes to help gather the top a bit neater, and a little horse button since it was for a work colleagues baby (the show we work on is war horse).

A friend showed me a trick to keep more even tension in ribbing, you wrap that first purl stitch of every section backwards, I don't really know why but it helps keep that first bit that tends to go slack all tight


Ok, I swear those photos were the right way up a minute ago. Craftster seems to always tilt photos I upload from my phone to make them landscape; does this happen to anyone else , and does anyone know how to stop it?

The final MotM of the semester is awarded over on the board! Congratulations to all our winners, and everyone who has contributed to the fantastic crafting these last 3 months - and of course congratulations to the Gryfs for taking the house cup*

*ok, that last bit is said through gritted teeth Wink

Advance studies update -
Since we are struggling to find appropriate backing fabric for the quilt (and having out all that work in, don't want to compromise) I would like to put my current OWL on hold until the supplies are found. In the mean time, I will work on a new OWL - this over o already designed and ask the supplies corrected so work starts tomorrow!

OWL PROPOSAL
subject; Alchemy option 2
house; ravenclaw
Project; I will be making a photo album to celebrate a wedding! The 4 elements will be represented by various parts of the design and construction..
Earth - the substance of the book, it's pages and paper. The pages will be individually hand cut, folded and wrapped before being Coptic stitch bound
Air - part of the cover design features negative space embroidery, symbolizing air
Fire - the whole book celebrates the eternal love of the two brides, there ever-burning flame
Water - the colour scheme is blue and silver, water colours

This project should take 3 weeks
Week one - prepare leaves by cutting and folding, arrange into signatures and prepare wraps. Embroider both back and front designs
Week two - construct covers, cutting board and covering in embroidery, and lining. Make and decorate folded cover pockets
Week three - bind book! Include tune to practice Coptic stitch method a little more first :-)

All of which leaves me half a week to overrun before the wedding (just in case...)

After a few days looking for the perfect main supply, I found it... Went home and settled down to craft with all the designs in front of me, tea made, music on... And realised that I had completely forgotten the second main supply... Fail.

There's no straps, its just an envelope :-) but you could put some on the back easily enough, backpack style, or add a shoulder strap by the opening.
I think most board games come with the dice in the box, but the pocket is there for whatever - if you wanted a dice pocket though, a placket would definitely be better.
Thanks for ask your lovely feedback, Kyle loved it :-) happy times!

Great idea Erin! Are we allowed to combine the treasure hunt prompts with a class/challenge prompt?

Deputy Head Noodle-bug competes her first ever Homonculous charm!
Just to let you guys know, when I update the house points there will be some time before the update appears on the front page of the thread, as logistically only Mistress Jennie can add the updates to that post. So don't fret if you don't see your submission included straight away

I haven't had a chance to update the career stuff yet this term (yesterday was my big end of year exam, so now that's out of the way I'll be catching back up on hpc stuff!) But I'll take Jennie's word for it :-) your official welcome will be in the next couple of days
