A new magician of the month is posted on the board

Honourable mention also goes to Tiamatfire, since I didn't think I could let you win twice in a row but the dino jumper / hat combo really is awesome!

Challenge: house pride
house: ravenclaw
project:
a toasty entralac wrap to keep my ravenclaw brain warm!
This took  an age,  since I have done one tier a day (about 40 minutes) every work day whilst the cat use the stage for warm up so I am just waiting around.  But I'm hall put with the result,  especially add it uses some Finnsheep wool I picked up on holiday in Finland,  along with some cream alpaca.
Instead of mattress stitching the ends, Io added am extra few tiers to make am overlap and learnt to knit   buttonholes!

Owl proposal. ..
Subject; transfiguration option 1
House; ravenclaw
proposal;
I will be turning a lot of charm squares (4 packs of them!) in 9 square patches.  Maybe not the most exciting project,  but am important first step in a quilt I will be making.  This will definitely take Moyer than 3 weeks because my access to a  Sewing  machine is limited (I will also be using this task to brush up basic skills before tackeling the next step. ..)

Photo stands for both submissions ☺

Challenge; bean- cheese
house; ravenclaw
project; blaster belt
my niece found that the belt came with her costume didn't have anywhere to stash her blaster gun! So I raided the craft box at my parents house,  which hadn't been used since I moved out more than a decade ago,  and made a holster up out of some craft foam.
The lightsabers are clipped onto our belts with some retractable keyring thingies so they  didn't need holsters

Challenge; head - January
house; ravenclaw
project; Darth Vader cloak & mask
I made up the cloak, and modded a cheap store mask to look better (added a little silver paint to nose & glued in some lighting gel behind the eye holes) for my costume. 

625  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Does it need a bigger pompom?? baby hat on: January 22, 2015 07:10:35 PM


A pretty simple baby hat (well, you'd think, but how  many times did I forget to purl into the back of the stitch in that rib section! Path!)... but I am plagued by the knitter's dilemma; does it need a bigger pompom?

Answers on a postcard...

Expecto Totoro!
* chanting and dancing in a little circle;

Class: Potions
house; ravenclaw
project; quiz show hexies

I've been say making hexies whilst yelling answers (only occasionally the right ones,  unfortunately) at quiz  show contestants on tv. Personnel favorites are 'only connect' and university challenge (despite paxman being a smug git)

Hexies require  several bits off prep; printing off and cutting out paper templates (I like to use old homework sheets as being allowed to snip them to bits is good for my soul), and sourcing/ cutting down small bits of fabric... these are mostly from a swap I did with tiamatfire (pm me of you might be interested in swapping too!). Then you can pin template to fabric and tack them up...

They're fine now,  (and really cute) maybe it was just my phone being a pain!

Hi Anne, your heading is sort of confusing because you've included the nerd battles heading too, maybe you could delete that to help out Jennie when she comes to work out house points....
(Your photos don't seem to be working either! )

Class; MS
house; ravenclaw
project;
the problem with muggle  travel,  especially on foot,  is the cold.  Especially especially if you're a baby,  and dependant on parents to wrap you up warm... and especially especially especially if you're daddy is a bit forgetful like my friend Jack.  He's soon to be a father, so to help him remember to dress his kid for the cold, I've made a hat in his football team colors
