You guys make me laugh so much Cheesy

Great colours on that lego quilt!

A short update on my ongoing OWL; it's due tomorrow, but I an extending it to include a couple of extra hoods I've be asked to make so I guess I'll need an extra week or so Smiley also, my mum got the age wrong of one of the kids, he's more of a young teen, so I will be making his hood in teen size not child.

ok... a few days late, but that allowed me to take my time finishing up and do the best I could
Completed NEWT
Exam: Arithmancy
House: ravenclaw
Project: Klein bottle hat, with Pi Stripes

The whole hat is a giant klein bottle - meaning it only has one surface. It's basically two layers of dk stocking stitch, with the little tubey bit in rib to hide where the inside becomes the outside.

it's stripes are the numbers of Pi - so, 3 green, 1 purple, 4 green, etc to make 3.14....
green and purple to match my friends coat - with the decimal point (on the brim) in cream; by coincidence those are the colours of the women's suffragette movement here in the UK, which I kinda love too.
the bit where it joins back up again... so, just before the first three of 3.14... sits just inside the brim. There, I added a couple of rows of cream again to represent ellipsis to show that the Pi numbers go on and on. and then I did it up by grafting it (I'd done a special type of cast on, which I can't remember the name of, where I could rip off the cast on to reveal a row of live stitches beneath, for grafting)

It's not perfect - but it's a lot better than the last hat I made with dk wool Smiley I'm happy with it, and I think my friend will like it. I'll share a photo of her posing in it when I get one

NEWT Proposal
Subject: herbology
House: ravenclaw
One of the guys at work makes me coffee everyday. Everyday. Even when he's not having one himself. How sweet is that? He's leaving when his cast changes in a month, so I wanted to make him a thankyou / goodbye gift - I thought a coffee pot would be ideal. I will make it from stuffed fabric patches, embroidered (a kin to my birdhouse - except not Tm patches, these will be smaller so I don't want them to have the visible hem borders). I'll use skills from english paper piecing to make the pillows.
The whole thing will be a celebration of that most life-affirming plant; the coffee tree (yes, tree - i checked; wikipedia says tree or shrub). I will also be using embroidery patterns inspired by a number of different plants. including some designs based on hemp leaves and petalled flowers.
I will also primarily be using cotton fabric, from the cotton plant of course - I will be using left over bits and scraps, which means that I am saving more cotton plants form being picked by making sure I don't waste what I already have
I want to leave it in his dressing room during his last show, so I need to have it finished by then!

Dude, the h-puffles have a knitting Dalek? JEALOUS!

but, in true Ravenclaw stylee... I'm whipping in to submit the first project of the term!

Class: Divination
House: Ravenclaw - GO EAGLES!
My cousin asked me today to send a postcard to her boyf for his birthday - he collects them, so she want them from everyone... but she's left it a bit last for postage so we were all on the rush Smiley
letting out a sigh of exasperation (last minute is always the way in my family, it can be frustrating!) and throwing my head back, I took inspiration form what I saw in the sky, and decided to embroider a pre-existing postcard with a floating birthday balloon! Since the postcard I found had a lot of sky that seemed good, and that postcard had a zebra balloon with the legend 'zebra in seville'.... which somehow made me think of a zebra in seville orange... so I stitched him up to hold the balloon. I backed the postcard with some paper, double-side taped on to hide the back of my stitches and give me somewhere to write. I hope he likes it Smiley

Awful photo, but excited to submit because it means I've done every class and challenge thus term :-) (I'm a ravenclaw, it's fairly predictable really).

Challenge; February detention
House; go eagles!
Project; a bear hood.
Obviously not one of the ones for my owl! All black, in teenager size

I like places, best of the subject matter themes - that could go anywhere... Local, or far, or fictional.... Anyway :-) that'd be cool. Typeography would be cool too - i'd like that, but maybe others who already did the text hoopla swap would prefer something new...

Or one colour, that's my favourite technique theme (that could encompass blackwork, too)

Just my 2 cents - for what they're worth.

Yay, thanks psyche!
