I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Class: Chaser Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Fledgling Phoenix
Project Page Link: Chocobo Tute
Brief Description: We happened upon a rare phenomenon while looking for the cat earlier today. A smoldering pile of ash caught our attention and after a few minutes we discovered this:

We took the little creature inside and immediately sent an owl to Hagrid, since Phoenix husbandry is way out of our league. Got a few cute baby pictures, though!

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

Wow! I haven't visited in almost a week and a half and there's an explosion of all these great projects, new people, and quidditch. I need to get busy; this undercover muggle life (job, etc.) is sapping my crafting energy.

I have been doing such a bad job on commenting on all the lovely projects, but I do totally check them out each time something new is posted!  I haven't contributed in a while, since I've been so busy with swaps.  Sooooo, I finally did something not entirely swap related.   Something that I love to do and to help my fellow Hufflepuffs in the tournament!

Class: Chaser Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Strawberry Syrup & Strawberry Jam
Project Page Link: None yet
Brief Description: I slaved over a hot cauldron this Sunday to make up some of my favorite things to can.  I made 1 batch of strawberry jam and 2 batches of strawberry syrup.  And a boiling charm greatly helps speed up the process!


Here are the 7 half pint jars of strawberry jam that I made.


Upclose with the jam.  Oh, and here is the link to the recipe that I use:
http://pickyourown.org/strawberryjam.htm

That website has loads of canning recipes and tips for canning.  It rules!


And here is the syrup in 5 pints and 7 half pint jars.  Mmmmm!  It is soooooo good on pancakes, even better than maple syrup.  Its also good on ice cream, too!


Upclose picture!  And the link for the recipe:
http://pickyourown.org/blueberrysyrup.htm

Go go Hufflepuffs!!!

Eiseldora I love that skirt!! What pattern did you use?

when I was looking for historical representation of common wear I found a few images of a female in corset/vest that was differently colored from the skirt.  the skirt was depicted  with two seams on the front along the legs. I also talked to SCA members who told me most skirts were made  at least 1.5 the width of a winona hips so she could keep wearing during pregnancy. In some costuming manuela I found a technique of adding a drawstring hem, and ribbon hem to the base.

It seems that most embroidering was used on edging to keep fabric from fraying and add style. I don't have time for anything that fancy though.


Thanks! I've got one ren faire outfit (we go every year at least once) but I've been wanting to make a few pieces myself to shake things up. I've been nervous about making anything wearable, but a skirt seems simple enough!

I made a board on pinterest to gather all my internet Ren Faire research. Maybe it will help you in your efforts Grin

http://pinterest.com/eiseldora/diy-ren-faire/

Sadly I didn't find skirt inspiration online. but I did find some good Chemise things.

Did more searching and found this list of patterns you might buy at your local craft store
http://genepaulandsusanna.com/diycostume.html

Hope it helps Cheesy

I've been making skirts for a little while so it wasn't as scary. First time I traced a skirt that fit well, second time I used this pattern so I worked my way up to a medieval skirt.

Class: Cheering/Spirit Challenge
House: Slytherin
Project Name: sssssmocked-a-lot
Brief Description: All this flying around at the Quidditch House Cup has got my hair in a tangle, so I made this hair clip to tame my mane and show my house pride deciding that 'stylish' and 'sport' should not be mutually exclusive. It's honestly far more green in reality, I'm pretty pleased how my first attempt at smocking turned out and am really glad to have found a project for a favourite button I'd been holding on to. But mainly I'm happy to have my hair out of my face  Wink
