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!

OK, I have some submissions to make!  And a few that hopefully I'll get to make tonight and post tonight or tomorrow Smiley

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Name: Wee suspenders

I made suspenders for my son's cake smash photos, and believe me I had no idea what the outcome would be!  I was pretty stressed out, and had to change the angle of the attachment at the back several times to get it set in the right place.  I'll post a picture of the smash once I get them back too Wink



Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor
Name:  Bacon-wrapped hot dogs

These required reasonably precise timing and attention to detail, as I had to turn them several times to get the bacon to brown evenly!  It was really easy: I cut a deep slit down the hot dogs, put in slivers of cheddar, then wrapped bacon around them held with toothpicks.  Roasted at 400F for about 30 minutes all told, turning every 10 minutes.  Next time I'd skip the cheese, and just add it right and the end grated instead.  Most of it leaked out over the roasting period.  I suppose the caramelized onions you can see took a lot of time too! Wink



Class: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor
Name: Birthday Banner

This banner has Happy Birthday written on it!  I made one for my daughter's 1st birthday, so I had to make one for him too Smiley  Her's is very sweet but fairly girly, so I wanted him to have his own.  Sorry for the blurry picture!  It's all cut from a pack of coordinated cardstock.  I printed out the letters backwards, cut them out, then traced them on the back of the cardstock and cut them out, then pasted to squares of more cardstock.

It's mercerized cotton.  I'm not sure what else to do with mercerized cotton, because it doesn't seem very absorbent, so I don't think it would be a great dishcloth yarn. 

Nice case Moonflame!  I had that problem with Mercerized cotton too, and I actually made a few apple protectors with it Smiley  They're a little case to put apples into so they don't get bruised in your lunch bag!

Naantje, I hope the funeral ends up being a comforting place to say goodbye to your grandmother.  I'm so sorry for your loss.

A couple more projects to slip under the wire!

Class: Detention - January
House: Gryffindor
Name: Jelly beans down in my belly bean

I've had this yarn for forever - as in, since right before I went off maternity leave the FIRST time!  I've swatched it a few times, and picked out patterns a few times, and ripped it out a few times.  I finally sat down and knit a basic raglan sweater, from scratch without a pattern.  The fun yoke yarn is Jelli Beanz, so I named the sweater after one of our favourite songs from our moms group.



Class: Flying
House: Gryffindor
Name: Balloon card

My sister's birthday is coming up, and I decided to make her a card!  I found a tutorial online for this cute card that features balloon pop-ups inside.  I cut out the balloons freehand (I don't have a cutting machine), used acetate from a box for baby slippers, and stamps for the lettering and the front.  It's now in the post on it's way to the East Coast!

Oooh great ice-cream!  My sister is in the Halifax area so was inundated as well, thankfully not in any of the areas flooding now!

I've updated the Charms and DADA classrooms, please let me know if I missed one of your projects!

From what I understand Moonflame - you can include any projects you've done since you became an alumnus instead of being a student (so you completed 7 semesters)!

Thanks!  PPD was harder for me to deal with than the one other time I've suffered with clinical depression, I think in part because you feel really, really guilty that you're sad with a new baby.  Especially when they're difficult, and/or have health problems.  I also never had the feelings of not wanting the baby or anything and some doctors and nurses still consider that to be a requirement for PPD (even though it isn't).  My friends and family have helped, and talking helps too.  I'm doing much better now thankfully, and I think going back to work will help too.
