If you still dont have the maxi skirt and would like to make one, this pattern will instruct you how to crochet it. You can make the skirt in any color you want and meet the summer with the new maxi skirt.

And now some homework to turn in!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pen Holder
Brief Description: I regularly use two journals/notebooks in my everyday life and Im very often hunting for pens when I need to write something down.  For my apparition homework I decided to make a holder for a pen for both of my journals.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Tissue Box Cover
Brief Description: While browsing the craft store I came across a bunch of wooden tissue box covers, that just slide over the box of tissues.  I picked one up with the intent of making it look like a Rubiks Cube but ultimately landed on painting it like a Companion Cube from the Portal games.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Berties Bean - Mustard
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pimento Cheese
Brief Description: I love pimento cheese, all kinds, even the kind that comes in the little jar in the processes cheese section of the grocery store.  I decided to make some of this delicious spread of Memorial Day weekend and it did not disappoint.  The end result was a cheese spread that was delightfully bright in color and flavor - theres even some mustard in the recipe.  Recipe via Pioneer Woman.
4 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, Softened
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard (more To Taste)
1 Tablespoon Adobo Sauce From Canned Chipotles (more To Taste)
1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper
8 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
8 ounces, weight Monterey Jack Or Mozzarella Cheese, Grated
4 ounces, weight Sliced Pimentos, Drained
2 teaspoons Chopped Fresh Dill

Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, Dijon, adobo, and black pepper in the bowl of an electric mixer. Mix it until totally combined (if you have a few lumps from the cream cheese, no problem; you won't see them later!)
Add the cheddar and Monterey jack and mix gently until combined. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the bowl and make sure all the ingredients are mixed together. Stir in the pimentos and dill. Taste and mix in more of whatever you think it needs. Add more cheese if you like the pimento cheese to be less creamy; add less if you like it to be more creamy.
Refrigerate pimento cheese for at least 2 hours before serving.
Serve with crackers, small hollowed-out peppers, carrot and celery sticks, and olives. (Or make small sandwiches or even a grilled cheese with it!)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hem all the Curtains!!
Brief Description:  When we moved into our new house earlier this semester I hung new curtains in the living room and master bedroom.  Both of these sets of curtains came from IKEA and were made for a home with 10 foot ceilings.  I ended up having to cut off about foot of fabric before the actual hemming.  Whenever I have to make a permanent change like cutting fabric I stress, so I measure and measured again and thankfully everything turned out okay in the end.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - April
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Zucchini Carrot Bread
Brief Description:  At the end of my week I was cleaning out the refrigerator and discovered I had bought an extra zucchini.  I decided its best use would be to make zucchini bread.  I went on an internet hunt for a recipe and cam across one for zucchini carrot bread.  Do yourself a favor and make this!  It tastes delicious and it makes your house smell amazing!  Recipe via Averie Cooks.
1 large egg
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup liquid-state coconut oil (canola or vegetable may be substituted)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cup sour cream (lite is okay; or Greek yogurt may be substituted)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2  teaspoon baking powder
1/2  teaspoon baking soda
pinch salt, optional and to taste
1 cup grated carrots, laid loosely in cup and not packed (about 1 large/2 medium peeled and trimmed carrots)
1 cup grated zucchini, laid loosely in cup and not packed(about 1 medium/large trimmed zucchini)
1/2 cup walnuts, raisins, etc., optional

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Spray one 9x5-inch loaf pan with floured cooking spray, or grease and flour the pan; set aside. Note - Loaf is not very tall as baked in a 9x5 pan, but I fear an 8x4 pan will be a bit too skimpy.
2. In a large bowl, add the the first seven ingredients, through cinnamon, and whisk to combine.
3. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, optional salt, and fold with spatula or stir gently with a spoon until just combined; don't overmix.
4. Add the carrots, zucchini, optional walnuts or raisins, and fold gently to combine.
5. Turn batter out into the prepared pan (it's quite thick, this is what you want), smoothing the top lightly with a spatula.
6. Bake for about 52 to 58 minutes (I baked 54 minutes) or until the top is golden, the center is set, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs, but no batter. Tip - Tent the pan with a sheet of foil draped loosely over it at the 35 minute-mark to prevent top and sides from becoming overly browned before center cooks through. Baking times will vary based on moisture content of carrots, zucchini, climate, and oven variances. Bake until done; watch your bread, not the clock and don't worry if it takes longer to bake than the baking estimates provided.
7. Allow bread to cool in pan for about 15 minutes before turning out on a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against the Dark Arts
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Travel Tissue Holder
Brief Description: This spring my allergies have been especially bad, so bad that I have had to start carrying tissues with me in my purse.  I really hate the little plastic bags the tissues come in (they get ripped, the sticky flap sticks to everything but what I want it to, etc) so I sewed up a little pouch to store just the tissues.  And there is the added bonus that my tissues now look pretty.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pirate Ship Cross Stitch
Brief Description: My mom thought me how to cook and sew and knit, but the first crafty thing she thought me was cross stitch.  I believe I was 6 or 7 (based on the memory of the house we lived in when she thought me) and my first project was a small red rose.  She entered it in the county fair for me and I won a red ribbon.  Since then my crafting interest have evolved but I still enjoy sitting down watching a move to TV and working on a cross stitch.  Pattern by Satsuma Street Designs.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Side Table Re-Do
Brief Description:  After moving a discover I needed an end table.  I wanted something round and large enough for a lamp and a coaster.  I searched all the usual places and just as I was about to give up I came across a Nate Burkus table in the clearance section of Target.  The design of the table was what I wanted but I was not enthused about the gold legs, peach table top and there was some damage to the wooden top.  But at $19.00 I figured I could make something out of it.  I used wood filler to repair the top, then painted the base silver, the top navy blue and used my Cricut to cut three feathers out of vinyl and adhered them to the table top.

Finally turning in my OWL!!

OWL Subject & Option (if available): Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Mermaid Lagoon Cross Stitch
Brief Description: I completed my cross stitch about two weeks later than my goal date, then the pictures just sat on my phone.  Sad  The inspiration for this project is The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen.  The cross stitch pattern I stitched up was designed by Satsuma Street.  Now I just need to frame her so she can be hung in my bathroom.

When I couldn't find my other steampunk-ish earrings to wear with the awesome necklace gozer made for me a while back, I took advantage of the opportunity to make myself some new jewelry.  I think these may be one of my fave pairs of earrings now!  Winnnn!!

Wonderful packages! I love the cowl.

I received a lovely package from Sharalee!

A fun pouch, bag, and fabric bowl. She also used one of the cards I made for her, which was fun to receive back! I love the fabrics she used, they work really well together.

Here is a close up of the pouch and bag...

The zip on the pouch has two cute charms on the zipper.

Thanks so much Sharalee! Everything is fantastic! Grin

Thanks for the kind words, guys!

I have one more project to add at the moment-- when I couldn't find my other steampunk-ish earrings to wear with the awesome steampunk necklace gozer made me a while back... well, all I can say is, "how fortuitous!"  So I made these for ME! They may very well be my new favorites.

Not too long ago I participated in a mini quilt swap and this is the quilt I made for my partner I used free patterns on craftsy by Quiet Play. This was my first time trying paper piecing and I don't like it but I love the way it makes things come out so there's probably quite a bit more of it in my future.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Picnic Dress
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Looking through my doll clothes box you will mostly find shades of blue.  The mustard bean was a good challenge to move beyond this particular part of the spectrum.  I made this with a poly-blend scrap from my great-aunt's scrap bin, and my sewing machine hated it.  It tried to eat one of the skirts (I nearly lost it down the feed dogs) and severely mangled another.  Third time's the charm, though!

Thank you loudxmouse!  It's the prettiest hat I own!
