What's this? Could I actually have something to turn in? Dobby's socks! who would've thunk it?!
Class: Herbology + SPEW (garden blanket), also HUNTER: Diadem + SPEW (Blue Blanket)
Description: I fell in love with the Red Heart Soft yarn in "Garden" the colors are reminiscent of the great gardens of the Wizarding world and the fanged geranium specifically. Anathea Atwater, the Witch of Garden Design and Cultivation at the Minister of Magic Government residence and grounds was consulted on the color scheme and patterning of the variegation. And what a job she has done! Her 45 years of experience in the field of Horticultural cultivation is evident in the way the yarn works up in this granny square blanket I made for donation to St. Mungo's infant ward. Also shown here is a second blanket in blue Homespun yarn by Lion Brand in a soft representation of Ravenclaw's colors and Ghostly Spectre.
And now a few thoughts on some (not all- Ain't nobody got time for that! There's too much great stuff) of the Marvolo-ssss projects that have posted recently- such an interesting mix of mediums and designs. I love this board!
Jennie: The necklace for your friend is fab! so thoughtful and unique that I can easily see it becoming a cherished family heirloom for generations to come. Seriously. Like the charm bracelets that were visual diaries of women past this is a representation of a woman at a certain point in her life and should she ever have children (or mentor/student relationship like a mother/child one) then It would be a beautiful thing to bequeath to someone. Beautifully made!
Travelgirl- what a great idea your travel at supply kit is- definitely a gift she'll adore.
Abbee: Those "Baby Burritos" wraps are so cute! I too love that new baby smell.
The Deadmau5 and pants are fun projects, too- what a creative kid you have!
Teag- The award or storycrafting goes to you this week! Dancing Dumbledores they were fun to read! The bird tree is beautiful. The creative reuse of the eggs is commendable as well, and I lurve those wee footprints- nicely done!
My, Eiseldora you have been busy! I think my favorite is the apron. Great package for the OAHPT!
Patty-o I like your bead choices for the patronus bracelet- pretty! I still have yet to discover my patronus animal. It's not easy!
Everyone's recipes look so fun to try! We're going to need an HPC cookbook by the time we're finished!
OK, I've gotta run- thanks for the fun reads/views this morning!
(PS- JennieIngram: The bean challenge scheduling question: Anytime that works for you is A.OK with me! I put out the SPEW REVIEW on sundays, but I can't commit to a time so it just gets up there when I can. Sometimes in the a.m. sometimes just before midnight or anytime in between. This is a board for fun- not stress- so do what works for you! *End of sermon*)
Happy Crafting, everyone!
