Challenge: Nice pinterest board you have there!  Make something inspired by a pin.  Share the pin too so we can "ooh and ah" properly.

Thank you, everyone!

Another idea that I had, but didn't finish, was using the ATC as a gameboard for a Dungeons & Dragons style battle game.  The figures shown are just quick critters/people made out of my kneading eraser for mock-up purposes (kneading erasers are a fun, temporary sculpting medium if you've never tried it).  I didn't shoot a photo, but I did make Dryad, Unicorn Centaur, and Tritonia (mermaid) 2D stand-up figures for it (I had planned to store all of the components, including fold-up hollow dice, in an envelope on the back of the card, but I never got that far).

Oooh, ice-cream!  I'm game!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Buddy System
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sunset Sweater
Project Page Link: Pukifee Pullover Pattern
Brief Description: This sweater's story is full of buddies.  The yarn was bought back in 2006 when my college room-mate and I went halves on a knit picks order to get free shipping.  She used this yarn to make hand warmers for another mutual friend.  Earlier in the month I was visiting her and helping put her craft room in order when the remains of the skein rolled out a cabinet.  She let me have it, and a bunch of other fingering weight yarn as a thank-you for the help, so I made her a tiny sweater for her doll as a thank-you for the yarn.  Moths had gotten into the outer parts of the ball, so I pieced together a lot of little short bits to make the sweater.

Slytherin Scavenger Hunt: Liquid Luck - 7 rounds of stockinette between the sleeves and the bottom ribbing.
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pirate Sweater #1
Project Page Link: Pukifee Pullover Pattern
Brief Description: This size sweaters are great travel projects - small, portable, and I've made them enough to have the pattern nearly memorized. 
Book Rec: The Merrow Tree by Katie Waitman.  This book is about a traveling performer.  I really like it for two reasons.  One is that I love outsider points of view of Terran culture, and the other is she really takes advantage of the fact that you can make your sci-fi worlds incredibly diverse in print.  So often aliens come across as pretty standard bipedal humanoids with slightly different skin or mental abilities, but this world has everything up to an including sentient wisps of color.  The mishmash of cultures makes things feel much more fleshed out.  And the yarn I used is a real mishmash of colors.  See? It all ties in somehow.

Project Name: Pirate Sweater #2
Project Page Link: Pukifee Pullover Pattern
Brief Description: Doll Clothes are kind of my thing after all.  I've been on a knitting binge recently (otherwise known as having to sit through a bunch of lectures) so this batch has been sweaters instead of dresses.  Oh well, winter is coming.

I can provide side-by-side pics of the last two sweaters to prove that there are two if needs be, but I think I've spammed you enough.

I will be on vacation next week, but I hope to get a lot of work done on my Advanced Studies projects during the 10 hour (each way) car-ride and the long evenings while I'm there.

Hi Im Lindy and I am in the U.S., Arizona to be exact! I am trying to collect patches to make a cover for my embroidery machine. Its about 2-3 times the size of a regular sewing machine so I will need a lot of them!I would prefer square or rectangle patches please. My favorite colors are aqua/turquoise, mint, coral, pink, gray, black, silver, and jewel tones. I am not a huge fan of yellow or orange as main colors. I have no allergies.
Themes I would like:
Doctor Who
Harry Potter
Day of the Dead
Disney: Alice in Wonderland, Ursula, Ariel, The Haunted Mansion, Belle, Disneyland/land or ride themes, Dole Whips, Jack Skellington, Oogie Boogie, Pooh & Friends, & Tinkerbelle.
Guardians of the Galaxy
The letter L
I also have a Pinterest board with patches I like the link is in my signature

And here are some photos of the patches I already have:

I almost hate looking at your yarn goodies, that1girl!  I always seem to add a pattern to my "to do" list!

Like that lovely little shawl!  I could use a lovely little rainbow shawl like that!

Small spoiler picture... I didn't realise I had all these colours of cotton/cotton blends the right thickness. I find it funny how many swap goodies are in the picture. Smiley Crocheted coaster, knitted mug cozy and beaded coasters. And I can dig out many more swap gifts without even trying!

Awesome stuff!  I have fun memories of both of those musicals, and the art styles work perfectly for both!! XD

I received my package as well, from puzzled-penguin!! I love it!

Here's the whole thing:

It's got stuff from two of my favorite major musicals, the Phantom of the Opera, and Les Miserables!

First there's this amazing hoopla:

It has the line "Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise" from Les Mis's "Do you hear the people sing?"  So uplifting, and the colors of the fabrics just make the most beautiful sunrise!  Look at that happy sparkly sun!  Nice to get such an upbeat message from such a tear-jerker of a musical!  I'm super impressed at the lovely loopy cross-stitch script!

And then there are these adorable magnet characters:

Also from Les Mis is Eponine, as well as the Phantom himself!  A couple of my favorite characters, and aren't they just as cute as can be?  I can't wait to get these guys up on my fridge and the hoopla on my wall. Smiley  I'm so thrilled that with all the swaps I've done lately, my apartment decor is starting to show a broader range of my interests, as well as beautiful crafting styles!

Thanks again, puzzled-penguin!  I really really like everything!  I sent your package out today, and I hope you like it too! Smiley

EDIT: Craftster, whyyyyyyy must you do this to the images??  I specifically took SQUARE ones so you wouldn't turn them sideways!!  sigh...
