EdelC: The actions do NOT have to be completed in order. You just have to get them all before the end of the semester. Thank you for participating!

I will be posting my prize information on the scavenger hunt early this next week.

good because I tried the layer prompt and had a sewing fail... Sad I am going to see if it is fixable today.

I have a question about the slytherin scavenger hunt (I am bored at home today and so using this thread as a kick in the ass to go and do something productive) I have completed one action, but do the actions have to be done in order ...scavenger hunts are unfamiliar to me..

/House Unity   and scavenger hunt

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Neville Longbottoms toad spawn pudding.
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is inspired by Neville's toad's spawn. scavenger hunt action #1 and bubbles..

It is actually delicious, it is my first foray into chia. When I read it about it ages ago it was sooooo expensive but I found it at a sensible price recently and thought I would have a go.  This recipe is very simple, and tasty...and very good for you, chia seeds are high in good fats, but surprisingly low in calories. A decent serving of this (approx 1/3--1/2 cup) is around 100kcal.

1 cup milk, you can use any kind, I used almond milk for a little more flavour.
1 teaspoon of good vanilla, you can leave this out if you don't have any.
1/4 cup unmilled chia seeds.
1tblsp maple syrup, you could use honey/sugar or whatever you like.

mix well together, stir well after about 5 minutes and again after another ten or so. The chia seeds swell up and become soft, with a little crunchy seed in the centre. You can eat it after a couple of hours, or leave overnight in the fridge-it will keep 3 days or so. It becomes creamy and smooth with a little crunch. It is also possible to blend the whole lot together after mixing to make the whole thing very smooth, but I like the crunch...it is perfect for a comparatively guilt free sweet tooth craving. It would be a perfect foil for fresh berries, or even some shaved chocolate, but I am happy just grabbing a couple of spoonfuls occasionally.

I didn't get to the post office yesterday, but the package is sitting beside me now, I am going to run out to the post office very shortly. My poor partner will be the last to receive, seeing as it has to float across the atlantic, be dried out and sent by pony express (or however you deliver mail in the US Wink )

Project dump coming, I have been crafting, as much as possible, a combo of my NEWT and phone gave me tendonitis in my index finger...knitting is not my friend!

However I have lots to show you.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: COMC

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle studies  
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Rainbow quilt top-something comfy and snuggly
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: This is one of a matching pair, two friends of mine have had twins, they are getting married in the UK in July, now that gay marriage is legal there. The babies are having a naming ceremony at the same time. My friend and I are celebrants and will also stand as guardians for the twins, so we are making a quilt each. We didn't want to make small cot quilts, we wanted them to be able to use them for a long time. My friend is making a matching rainbow quilt, in a rail fence pattern. I just had to make the top, she is going to quilt both. They are single bed quilts. I LOVE this!

Brief Description: Lives on plants, we don't have these in Ireland, this was also for the tiny unloved creature swap, this took ages as I was trying for photo realism, I had to let go of that idea as I simply don't have such skill, but I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Reconned lamp
