Looking good, Head Mistress! I can't wait to see the final product!
I juste wanted to drop by and say hi! I'm currently making a HP board game and it made me miss all you guysso much! Happy to see it's still going! I will try to come back and craft some stuff. I just got back and read my NEWT proposal and after 2 years I'm still working on that project! It's crazy!
It's late now but I will be back to take a look at everything and giving some love on your project. If you want of me, that is! Missed you! xx
I was just thinking about you, Maman! I have your little Waldorf Ron Weasely doll from a swap a while ago pinned on my Pinterest page and I love him so much still.
So talented! Drop by anytime! And don't feel weird about the NEWT- my OWL proposal is 4 years old! gah! (Clearly I should have planned something smaller and less frightening for my first OWL!)
In the meantime, I have this little guy to turn in:
Class/Challenge/House Pride: CoMC
Project Name: Sweater Ornament
Brief Description: For this assignment I used the "Something gathered from recent travels" prompt. Last weekend Uncle Bee and I went on a day trip date to Old Sturbridge Village here in Massachusetts. It is a replica village and living museum of New England in the 1830s. The weather was beastly- pouring rain and a bit chilly- but perfect for keeping the crowds at bay. We felt like we had the village nearly to ourselves! After we wandered through the exhibits and chatted with the villagers we made our way through the gift shop (my favorite part of any excursion! haha!) and looked for something to take home to commemorate our
getting out of the house and actually doing something fun instead of chores or TV watching
trip. I personally like to buy souvenirs that are actually made in the place I am visiting, when I can, and we were looking at ornaments (I did admit that I'm Christmas Crazy, right?)- except what we found were made in china and kind of expensive ($35!). (Not that there's anything wrong with that, it just wasn't what I wanted.)
Then I found something awesome: The shop sold hanks of wool that are dyed on the premises by the "villagers" using recipes from the time. How fun! So I bought 50 yards in an Autumnal burnt pumpkin color (It was dyed with "Madder Root" to get the shade) for less than $4 and knitted up a little sweater to mark our visit. Uncle Bee chose the sweater pattern bc we visited in the fall- sweater weather season around here! (I have saved the yarn label and am going to try to do something with it to add to the ornament to keep it's meaning obvious through the years.)
