@tiamatfire, I listed your Hogwarts Hat, which I adore to pieces, a Quidditch Cheering/Spirit item.  (In the same spirit of pottermouth's fabulous Hogwarts Handwarmers, which I'm coveting)  If you don't want that counted as such, please PM me and I'll move it ASAP.

Fabulous work everyone!  I'm about to post some Quidditch projects of my own!

OH yes!  That's what they were meant for Cheesy  I swear to bob, mommy brain is real!

I'm done!   Grin

Challenge: Keeper
Project: Afghan square

The first of 4 I'm going to send to South Africa.  I cast a warmth charm, and my daughter imbued it with some love.


What house have you picked to be in tiamatfire?

D'oh!  Thanks for pointing that out!  I'm Gryffindor Wink  I fixed it in my post.

Project: Hogwarts Baby Beanie

A house unity hat that inadvertently ended up looking like a Hudson's Bay blanket...I love it though!  I'm going to make a straight-up Gryffindor one for her too.

I'm a librarian, so i'm trained in finding the elusive information.

I've been under the weather for the past few days. The projects are awesome and you must tell me the name of the book with snowflakes. I love snowflakes, but can't crochet. Maybe I have a chance at paper flakes.

It's The Book of Paper Quilling, by Malinda Johnston!  http://www.amazon.ca/Book-Paper-Quilling-Techniques-Projects/dp/0806905999/ref=sr_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1344469296&sr=8-8

Awesome, thanks Pinkleo!  I'll definitely whip out a few squares then.  I sooo can't wait for fall semester to start as well, I have some crafts I'm planning on doing, but I'm waiting to see if any will fit with fall semester classes, lol!

Challenge: Beater
Team: Gryffindor
Project name: Quilled Snowflake

Well I've always wanted to try quilling, and now is prime time because it's incredible inexpensive (especially when you borrow everything from the library and use scrap paper) due to budgeting restrictions.  The book I borrowed from the library had a cute little snowflake project which I thought I'd try.  I enjoyed it so much I'm definitely going to make more projects!

It's not glued to anything yet because I don't have the right kind of card stock to make the card.  Next month's allowance!  (My husband and I use an allowance system together, that way there's no bickering about whether it's fair someone bought more craft supplies or video games  Wink)

tiamatfire, did you check the links listed earlier in the thread for charities that accept mail-in donations?  It only cost me $4 to ship my crocheted squares to South Africa!

And I think we need to post that set of links people came up with somewhere...  Hey, pretty pinkleo, could we add that to the first page, maybe in the Daily Prophet?  Hang on, I'll send you the info via email... 


I might be able to do that!  It depends on how much it costs - our budget is pretty severely limited right now.  Every craft I've done so far has been 100% from stash!  I could easily make the squares, it's just mailing them that's out of reach until for sure after the challenge is over Sad  Pinkleo, can I still get credit if I make the squares before the deadline, and send them after?  I could totally provide proof that I mailed them when I can afford to!

Wow, everyone is just crafting like crazy!  I don't think I'm going to get to do the Keeper challenge sadly, as there's no local charities that need crafts (the humane society actually has a note begging people NOT to donate any more stuffed toys, pillows, etc.)  However I did drop of 3 bags of clothes and other items to a donation bin today so there's that at least!

Challenge: Broom
Team: Gryffindor
Project name: Swiffer cover

Right now as a busy new mom, my favourite broom is my swiffer!  I hate using the disposable wet cloths though, as they feel like such a waste.  I decided to crochet a scrubby cover for it. It's just Bernat Handicrafter cotton.  I'm going to make some simpler non-scrubby ones using old towels as well.  (Yes, I had Star Trek: Voyager on while I took pictures)

I feel a bit guilty, some of my projects are super quick and simple - but with a 4-month old you're lucky some days to get a shower never mind find some time to craft or create!

Challenge: Chaser
Team: Gryffindor
Project name: Honeydukes QuidditchPower! Smoothie: Quaffle flavour

Honeydukes has been doing some research into muggle sports, and discovered that many athletes use things called "smoothies", sports drinks, and other health foods to boost their performance.  Now they're trying it out at the Quidditch Cup!  This is their "Quaffle" flavour, so called because of it's reddish colour from strawberries.  Right now they're petitioning the Quidditch Association for permission to add spells or magical ingredients, and the fan version (not allowed yet by athletes) has Billywig stings as well for extra floating power!  



It's strawberries, 1% milk, natural lime yoghurt, and a banana.  I turned the extra into popsicles!

I may expand this line...find fun things to make "bludger" and "snitch" smoothies as well.

Seriously WANT that little Phoenix!

Challenge: Seeker
Project name: Golden Catsnitch

I decided to make a new cat toy, since they're feeling a bit hard-done-by what with all the attention the baby gets!  It's mostly just invented out of my own head, stuffed with leftover quilt batting and catnip.  I knew it was a hit because they started stealing the ball part from me before I even started the wings Wink

Challenge: Snape's Detention
Project name: Prairie Bonnet

I cut out several prairie bonnets a week after baby girl was born, but only sewed one together!  I've now sewn another one.  This one is reversible, with music notes on right side and a bold red and black damask-type print on the other.
