1  Re: HP Craftalong ~Spring Semester 2014~ *JOIN ANYTIME* in Craftalongs by Ant Bee on: March 21, 2014 08:16:29 PM
Thanks, Rockmygypsysoul! I am very hopeful that I will (finally) be successful!

And here's the latest...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: SOaR: Berkano, "New Beginnings"
Quidditch: Hit another Bludger!
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Little Amelia Aviator Hat
Brief Description: I chose to focus on Berkano's "New Beginnings" attributes. This little hat, pattern found here: http://www.littlestickyfingers.com/patterns/2013/6/22/newborn-aviator-hat is for a baby due any day now. It is supposed to be 0-3 mos sized, but I think it worked up a bit big. Probably a good thing, seeing as (one hopes) Spring is here and they shouldn't be needing the hat for much longer this season. The yarn is left-over from the Coverlet of the Seven Fandoms I did in September.

... back to the stash!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic/Quidditch: Hit a Bludger
SPEW: n/a
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Blackberry Soap Saver
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) The Blackberry symbolizes Healing, protection and money.  I chose the Blackberry stitch for this little scrap-buster for the user to use to help visualize healing energy as they scrub-a-dub-dub their aches away in the tub. 

It could also be used to visualize being showered with riches or for sudsy visual aids during protection spells.


For the Quidditch match: The yarn is Lily Sugar&cream left over from my Swiffer pads made ages ago.

I love how everyone is using such bright and cheery colors- it all looks great!

Here's my first (non brightly colored, but pretty cute model!) project for the semester...

Class: DADA
Spew: N/A
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Good Knight, or Sir Cadogan's Squire
Link: Purchased pattern from A Ravelry member. Will look up the contact info and add it in later.
Description: Friends had a new baby on Valentine's day and this is the little hat I worked up for them in Crochet. It is modeled on the newest squire for your baby-fix enjoyment. Smiley So cute, that wee boy!

DAILY PROPHET REPORTS S.P.E.W. REVIEW CALL FOR ENTRIES
(AND EDITOR)

By Rita Skeeter

Darlings, I'm sure you haven't heard the latest scandal in the publishing world... Ant Bee, editor of the Weekly S.P.E.W. Review, (Hermione Granger-Weasley, Founder) has been so bold as to get a job in a muggle retail estbablishment. With her new muggle *smirk* responsibilities she doesn't seem to have the time to devote to her editorial duties... It's positively revolting! What self respecting Witch would...

(... Well, you didn't hear it from me, but I heard she made some interesting dance moves in one Red-Headed gents direction at the Halloween Ball and well... *Knowing glance over bright red rims*)

The position looks like it will be open for the next semester and any interested parties should PM the powers-that-be to throw their pointy hat in the ring. It's a prestigious position encouraging the good and more fortunate crafty Witches and Wizards to use their powers for the less fortunate. This reporter, for one, looks forward to reporting on the new editor when one is named on December 1st.

In the meantime, be sure to pick up a copy of my new book for everyone on your gift-list this season. Coming out on the American Thanksgiving day is my next best-seller: Free Elf: The Unauthorised Biography of the REAL hero of Hogwarts. Find it at Flourish and Blotts, all yarn emporiums and your local S.P.E.W. Chapter meetings this month!


~Rita Skeeter is an international sensation and best-selling author. Adoring letters can be sent to her by owl at the publishing house.

Three additions this week, although many more mentions of possible S.P.E.W.ing in the near future- Yay!

This week Ravenclaw's Crafting Collective wrangle 40 points for Noodle's baby hats and Audania's low-tech baked goods for hi-tech school supplies- nicely done, Eagles!

The third is from Slytherin. (Shocking I know.) I have completed my "things" for "someone" and need only the "address" to which to direct my "owl". (PM's going out to headmistresses shortly as direct communications have failed.)

In other news, The Harry Potter Alliance has completed it's Fall fundraiser and has been successful, I'd say. They have raised $184,738 for programs supporting world-wide equality for all. They had named a goal of $100,000 and are pleased and honored to have almost doubled that! Well done, HPA!

Happy Crafting everyone!


If you have an organization that you would like to see mentioned in The Weekly S.P.E.W. Review please PM the editors via Ant Bee's profile for consideration. We love hearing from you! (Partly because that proves we aren't just typing to ourselves. See, Mom, I told you I had invisible friends! *cough. regain composure*)

::Coming to you live (and a little subdued) from the Slythee common room sipping a bit of Pepperup Potion after a wild night in Hogsmeade with Hagrid and Rosmerta.::

(softly) Hey, Hogwartians. Here's the Caring Crafts report for last week:

(To the rowdy group in the corner) SHHH! And stop spinning the common room!

(Softly again) Gryffindor's RockMyGyspySoul and Ravenclaw's Netchez both have whipped up some emotional chocolates to ward off the dementors seen around the Aquahearts home. Yours truly has something to add, but needs a bit of finishing off before my owl can carry it over. Nice work friends! Netchez also worked up 2 baby hats for the baby pantry.

Hufflepuff Midkiffsjoy wows all once again with a big bounty of baby bundles totaling 90 points for her house.

Keep working on those Caring Crafts, friends! Lots of charities will be starting their big holiday push soon- let's see what magic we can bring to them!

Have a great week, I'm going to go take a nap!

Happy Crafting!
PS:

The Harry Potter Alliance has an amazing possibility for you if you want to donate to their charity. The chance to win a SIGNED EDITION OF A HARRY POTTER BOOK (UK edition).

Hello again, Gentle Readers!

This week we (finally!) catch a glimpse of Slytherin Caring crafts with the addition of ErinAquahearts' collge class lead in the hospital. Great work, Erin! The healers at St. Mungo's do stand by the idea that giving and creating are good for the mind and soul, I hope that you experienced some of that while leading the class.

Gryffindor Pinkleo has wowed us all once again with her heart-felt baby 'ghan of hearts for parents grieving the loss of a baby. It's beautiful, Pinkleo and for a very good cause.

Ravenclaw's Netchez worked up an adorable owl stuffie this week- he's so cuddly looking! Good work!

And the Hogwartian hitting the post button most often for caring crafts yet again this week is Hufflepuff Midkiffsjoy with a total of 10 posts. Amazing!

Thanks for taking the time (and supplies) to make something for others this week, HPC Peeps.  I myself have managed to get one half of a pair of somethings done for S.P. today... I'll be able to post them later this week to get Slytherin a few more points.

Happy Crafting, everyone!

Hello again, Gentle Readers!

This week we have 4 members of 3 houses representing the art of Caring Crafts. *Ant Bee looks sheepishly at her housemates and mouths Let's meet in the common room to get working on some this week?*  We appreciate all the time and materials you are sending out into the world to make life a little kinder for someone. Thank you!

Representing Hufflepuff House we have Nicajeanie with her granny square love and Midkiffsjoy with her hats and diapers. Together they earn an additional 100 points this week!

Gryffindor Pinkleo is wowing the halls with her baby beanies- 10 of them! She also earns another 100 points this week! Nicely done!

Ravenclaw Netchez earn her house a gaggle of Squees and 10 additional oints for her little owl stuffie. Cute!

And Slytherin.... well.... We, ah, ...are waiting ...on an owl delivery from Diagon Alley! ... and the next trip to Hogsmeade for supplies.... yeah, that's it!

Happy Crafting!

@Ant Bee:  Beautifully done my friend!!!  (And also I have the same print, in the exact same frame.  Sadly it's in storage right now, since the walls in our current rental are a bit crumbly, and we can't risk hanging more pictures. Sad)

Thank you! (As to the print, I knew we were kindred spirits!)

This week has felt like poor Harry's season of time passing oddly while waiting for the trials of the Tri-Wizard cup! Sometimes the time was just slipping through the hour glass like a river over a water fall and other times it was nearly as still as a stone immovable in the desert.

But here we are on another S.P.E.W. Sunday at last and here are the 12 posts in our Caring Crafts category...

Hufflepuffs Midkiffsjoy and Niajeanie contribute another 110 points to their house total- Nicajeanie for her G-squares an Midkiffsjoy for her collection of baby supplies and hats and a secret squirrel item for the Aquahearts. Nice work, you two!

Gryffindor Rockmygypsysoul earned 10 points for her house with her beautiful cards for inmates. Excellent!

In S.P.E.W. work beyond the HPC:

We acknowledge the work of the Harry Potter Alliance which is working hard for causes relating to equality for all and having a good time doing it!  http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/equality-ftw-2013 

And how can we report on doing good for others without mentioning that this week it was announced that JKR herself would be penning a screenplay set in our wizarding world for all of us. It may not be a directly Charitable Work, but it will sure make my world a better place so I include it here today.  Grin

That's the posts of S.P.E.W. what's fit to review...

Happy Crafting everyone!
