ErinAquahearts Thank you! Smiley  I usually just cobble in a sort of slap-dash manner until I figure out what works, LOL!

Your wand is AMAZING!  Wow!!  

MistressJennie  I did a double-take at your plants and then remembered that you live in a warmer clime than I do, LOL!  Your bead and charm work is stunning as always. Smiley

A few more projects.  I swear I really will get our common room updated soon. :-/

Class/Challenge: Bertie Botts Bean - Olive (peace and harmony)
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: Hello Harmony
Project link: Another awesome YouTute (see what I did thar? ^_^ ), this time from MyFroggyStuff
Project Description: What could promote peace and harmony better than a Hello Kitty couch?  Päivi is enjoying her new peaceful sitting area very much!
Project Pic:

Class: Muggle Studies
House: HufflyPuffly
Project Name:  Swan Lake Tutu
Project Link:  I found a great tutorial for this made by a Youtuber called Sdrcow.
Project Description: This one's inspired by the famous ballet composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky.  Päivi has been twirling around in it when she thinks I'm not looking. Smiley
Project Pic:

Class: Study of Ancient Runes
House: HuffPuff
Project Name: Bunny Hat
Project Link: MyFroggyStuff did another great YouTute with tons of great hats!
Project Description: I did a fun simulator driving gig for my hubby's place of work and got paid some nice cash (trust me, this is rare for me as a homeschooling mom, LOL!)  Then I went completely insane and ordered an adorable ball-jointed doll!  She's not here yet, but Päivi is trying out the new hat, even though it's too big for her.  (The new girl is bigger than Päivi.)  The doll will be bald when she arrives, so I thought she could use a hat while she waits for a wig to show up. ^_^  I made this from old fleece socks my girls had.  The tops were still nice, so I thought I'd find a use for them. Smiley  

So how does this fit in with the prompt?  My mom is the one who first taught me to sew.  I'm SEW glad she did!! (*groan*)

Hi Guys!  Hopefully I'll be catching up our common room again over the weekend.  Here's another submission from me. Smiley

Class: Herbology
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: Sakura Dress for Päivi
Project Descriptions: I always associate cherry blossoms with new beginnings.  I made this dress for Päivi from cherry blossom fabric. Smiley  It's actually in 2 pieces.  I was kind of messing around, trying to see if I could make her a tiny top with darts and curved side seams, and it turned out pretty well.  Then I thought I'd try my hand at a very ruffly skirt, and THAT worked, TOO!  So together they make a 2-piece dress that I'm really pleased with.  Päivi likes it, too. Smiley

Hey fellow Hogwartians!  Here comes my project dump, and I'll be updating the Common Room over the next few days.  

Class: Arithmancy
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HuffledePuffle
Project Name: Zakka Cushions
Project Description:  I'd like to blame Gaudiknight for this, because her doll sewing has inspired me to make some tiny dolly things, too.  This time I decided to craft a set of wee cushions to list on my Etsy Shop.  I had no real plan - just wanted to make a set of cushions that varied in size and pattern, and then I decided to do a linen cushion with a cute accent Zakka-style that went with them.  I totally winged it as I went, but I love the result!
Project Pic:

Class: Astronomy
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HuffleePufflee
Project Name: Mochi Noms
Project Description: The sweet red bean filling is hidden inside soft, sweet rice dough.  Here's the recipe I used:
Christine's Recipes except, I'd recommend not steaming the dough for the full 30 mins.  Try 25 and see how things look.  I don't do the frying step or add the coconut - I just use the dough recipe.  Also, I used pre-packaged sweet red bean paste from the Asian market, which is excellent.  I use the "fine" paste by Shirakiku, but I've used others as well.
Project Pic:

Class: Charms
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HuffleePufflee
Project Name: Permanent Pins
Project Description: Beautiful images of Ball Jointed Dolls are permanently mounted inside these 1" buttons.
Project Pic:

Class: DaDA
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HuffleePufflee
Project Name: Fancy Cold Fighter
Project Description: This tiny hankie is helping Päivi get over her cold.  I loved making it so much that I ended up making a bunch more, and have even more in the works, LOL!  I didn't have much of a plan, but found that if I edged teeny squares of fabric with blanket stitch, I could crochet some frilly loops around the perimeter.  Päivi loves her hankie, and is feeling much better.  It always helps to have something pretty when you're feeling icky!
Project Pic:

here's a better look at 3 of them:

Class: Divination
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: Päivi's Panties
Project Description: Inspiration: June - rose - White Rose - Innocence)

 I got a lovely J-doll on sale to use as a model in my Etsy shop, but she had only one outfit, and her panties were a rather lurid, red lace string bikini. O_O  I thought she needed something a little more innocent, and when I saw some on Etsy, I thought, "I could do that."  Little did I realise at the time that those Etsy panties were for a much larger (1/3 scale as opposed to 1/12) BJD (Ball Jointed Doll.)  So, spurred on by the "it must be possible" misconception, I drafted a prototype, went on to create a better panty (the briefs beside Päivi), and then came up with the boyshorts she wearing, with which I'm thrilled!  I felt so smug about making this tiny pair that I did another, too!  I learned that my machine CAN sew over pins if I'm slow and careful (the sewing community is very divided on this point, and I'd always erred on the side of caution.)  I'm REALLY glad to have made that discovery!
Project Pic:

Class: Headmistress's Challenge - April
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: A Spring Skirt for Päivi
Project Description: As mentioned before, Päivi needed a wardrobe, so I winged a skirt for her, then decided it was too pouffy (unnaturally so, or I'd have been fine with it.)  I made 2 sort of pleats in the front and stitched thm down so that the back was still full, but the front was more reasonable.  Then I stitched some TEENSY flower buttons into the front.  The Skirt is blue for rain, with flower buttons for growing things. Smiley
Project Pic:

Class: Potions
S.P.E.W. n/a
House: HoufflePouffe
Project Name: Patient Potions Cookies
Project Description:
These teensy cookies are made with "chocolate chips" made from a thin, baked snake of polymer clay, which I then cut into tiny chips.  These were added to air dry clay cookies, which I textured and colored with chalk pastels to simulate baking.  They then had to dry for a couple of days.  I made 18 all together, but I snapped a nice pic of just 3 on a hankie, so I'm using it.  They're all slightly different, but pretty much the same if you know what I mean.
Project Pic:

I actually did even MORE stuff, but I have to try to figure out what classes they could possibly fit, LOL!

Hello fellow students!  I'm sorry to have been absent so much lately!  I'll be updating the Huffle House over the next couple of days, and hope to stay on top of things a bit better!  Now to do some catching up. . . Smiley

I'm sorry guys, I haven't done any updating and won't get to for awhile.  My son is in the children's hospital (he's not growing properly) and I'm not sure how long he'll be there or need care at home.  If you have some good thoughts to spare I could use them, and keep crafting!

My kiddo just had a 4-day stomach virus and I was worried sick. I can't even imagine what you're feeling. Definitely thinking of your fam.

My gosh!  My son is just starting to recover from pneumonia.  That's 3, Universe, so no more sick kiddos, OK?  Abbeeroad, I'm glad your young'un is doing better!  Tiamatfire, I'm sending good thoughts for your sweet boy!
