Growing up, we always had these plastic mesh dish scrubbies in the kitchen. I've had trouble finding them in the store, so I decided to crochet a dish scrubbie of my own.

I used tulle that comes on a roll. It "smooshes" up to make a thick yarn when you work with it.  

I used a J hook for the first 2 rounds and an H hook for the 3rd round.

Start with a J Hook
1. Start with a magic ring and chain 3 into the ring.
2. Round 1- Make 11 more dc into the ring. Tighten the magic ring and join with a slip stitch at the top of the starting chain 3. (12 dc)
3. Round 2- Chain 3 in the first stitch and make a second dc in the same stitch. Make 2 dc in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch at the top of the starting chain 3. (24 dc)
4. Cut the yarn and weave the outside tail in towards the center, but do not cut the extra length of remaining yarn.

5. Make a second one, but do not cut and weave the tail. Remove the hook and lengthen the loop so you don't accidentally pull out any stitches.
6. Put the wrong sides together and tie the cut tail ends together, knotting well. Trim off the excess yarn so it is hidden between the two halves.
7. Switch to an H hook and, holding the two halves together, single crochet around, stitching through the edges of each half.
8. Join with a slip stitch, then cut and weave in the tail.

I've made several of these, for family and friends. People are always a bit skeptical at first, but once they use it, they always ask for another!

This very, very lovely mini art quilt just came to live with me!  CraftCrazy13 was my partner and she did such an amazing job!!

It's based on a lyric from one of my favorite songs from Hedwig and the Angry Inch.  I love it so very, very much.  The quality is really high and it's just a perfect showcase for the lyrics.  I am so happy with it!  It's living on the wall behind my desk.  Seeing it makes me so happy!

Since well behaved women rarely make history lets have a swap that celebrates those bad girls we love so much! You could go historical (Lizzie Borden, Elizabeth Bathory, Typhoid Mary), literary (wicked stepmothers, wicked witches, villians), or those women who just buck authority and don't play by the "rules". However you want to define "wicked" is up to you.

The swap would be to craft one altered tin giving everyone time to focus on making a really nice item.

If their is enough interest I'd be happy to organize. Smiley

Time to turn in some homework!

Class: Apparation
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Take home Doggy boxes
Project Page Link (if available): Putting together these boxes definitely involved putting them together just right. I designed the printables myself and after much fiddling was able to print them to the exact size and carefully cut them out to the right sizes. Putting together the boxes took some careful deliberation and skill. Kind of tricky, but after the twelve one I'm happy to say that I think I passed Apparation!
Project Picture:

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Paw Patrol Birthday Signage
Project Page Link (if available): Many individual pieces of letters helped put together these birthday signs for my daughter's Paw Patrol signs. Many pieces come together as one! Signs included: Puppy Adoptions Today, Make a Home, Puppy Parlor, Naming Center, Make a Collar. Each sign was for a section of puppy adoption for the party. Smiley
Project Picture:

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Paw Patrol Party Food Labels/Food Bowls
Project Page Link (if available): Food the food bowls, I went to the 99cent store and bought some plain dog bowls and them dressed them up with some vinyl cut outs using my Silhouette. The food signs I made on the computer, printed them and glued them on colored cardstock. (A lot of the food names I stole off Pinterest but they were just so cute: Toilet Water, RUFF-age, Pups In a Blanket, Pup-corn, Puppy Chow, Dog food (Reese Puff cereal)...) Using the many colors of the Paw Patrol characters I was still able to blend them together to make a beautiful table layout for Luna's party.

Class: Charms
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: German Chocolate German Shepard Cake! (It's Chase from Paw Patrol!)
Project Page Link (if available): All instructions were from this well organized Betty Crocker Tutorial. http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/german-shepherd-dog-cake/5f416911-9b3a-4901-a99a-f70166df6753
Brief Description:  Well, this project took the cake! (har har har!) After I ruined the first two cakes I made by cracking them while transferring them, it was time to try again. I baked two MORE cakes and was super, super careful. Once the cakes were frozen (refer to the link for explanation) things went a lot smoother. You freeze them before you cut them and it makes it way easier. Who knew? For someone who hates baking - this cake was certainly tough mentally but I absolutely love how this turned out! If you look at Betty Crocker, they even have other dog breeds as well! So neat...maybe one of you would be brave enough to make a three-headed Fluffy cake?
Project Picture:

Class: Divination
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Greeting Card Books
Project Page Link (if available): What to do with all those cards you never want to throw away?? One very motivated night I finally sat down and put together little books of cards. One for Luna, one for me, one for my husband, one for anniversary/wedding cards, one for each Christmas year. This project definitely worked on my aligning skills. Punching out and aligning all those holes? Goodness....a lot of practice and a lot of work. Glad they're finally organized though!
Project Picture:

Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Happy Birthday Sign
Project Page Link (if available): This sign was put together with glue twice once to glue on the letters and not touch them, and another time to glue on the ribbon and not touch it again. Smiley
Project Picture:

Class: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Paw Patrol Badge Sippy Cups
Project Page Link (if available): They may seem basic but there were THREE steps into putting these cute little Paw Patrol Badge cups together. Step one: Resize badges and print them out. Step two: Cover badges with clear packing tape. Step three: Put badges through the sticker maker and stick them on the cups!

Oooooh, such great photos of Apti at the Con!!! And Apti with DOC BROWN!!! YAYAY!!!

Clyde went a bit into town this week...

He's seen the "little Kelpies"

... and he had a quick look at the smallest pub in Scotland (might be able to look inside one day the Hobbitses are "off to Rivendell" (i.e. with the grandparents)).

He really fancied this sign...

... and this carousel. Smiley

Today he joined my mum and me for a nice lunch at the "Mussel Inn" ... for our kilo pots of mussels!! Smiley With Roasted Pepper Sauce ... YUMMMM!!

And we took a quick walk over St. Andrew's Square where the Hard Rock Cafe had some kind of festival with food, drink and music (all for a price of course).

Thanks lovelymiss. It is pretty heartbreaking that I put all that work in just to have to move a year later, but such is life.

Project Name: burlap and lace utensil holders
Brief Description: These burlap utensil holders are for my wedding next September! I just finished all 130 of them. Initially I bought a burnt orange ribbon to go around them, but when I got it home I realized that I liked the lace better. Conveniently I have tons of scraps of lace that I was able to use, which Goes better with the mismatched aesthetic of the wedding anyway!
