fab ant: I thionk you should still use it. That photo sounds like it's much more about the two of you than him anyway, and it will remind her that he was never the whole of her life (even on her wedding day). I don't think I'm explaining very well but hopefully you can see where I'm going

I'm always up for swapping hexies or TM patches (or anything, really!) - PM me Cheesy

Thanks, Noodle Bug. I think you're right.  Yes, it is from her wedding day, but the actual photo is more about us as sisters, and that's the theme of the quilt.

I think I will use it, after-all, like Fiber Alchemist says she can tuck the gift away if it is not comforting until such a time as it will be...

Thanks for the input, I feel better about it after hearing from you guys.

...In unrelated comments: Pinkleo is on fire with those hats! Look at her go!

Harry witnessed Professor McGonagall walking right past Peeves who was determinedly loosening a crystal chandelier and could have sworn he heard her tell the poltergeist out of the corner of her mouth 'It unscrews the other way.

Challenge: Geminio Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: I Spy Ornaments
Brief Description: Made these ornaments for simple brother and sister family gifts.  Got the idea for ornaments from craft snob and I have made I Spy Bags before, so I had lots of treasures already.  One hint though.  These do not work with the styrofoam beads.  When I tried everything just hid right into the styrofoam and nothing would come out.  If you do it, use poly pellets or maybe glitter snow.  The styrofoam just was a staticy mess.

Working on my November Quidditch Challenge.  I put together 60 craft kits for Caitlin's Smiles while watching tv with DH tonight.   Cheesy  I'm hoping to put together another 20 or so tomorrow morning.

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Codename Bluebell Flames
Brief Description: Here in the magical world there are plenty of spells to protect from the scary monsters in the dark, even in the Muggle world you might find yourself lucky enough to have a Winchester brother or two at hand. For the rest of us the best defence and greatest comfort against the dark, is a little light!
Using assorted jars, I've made these neat candles, partly inspired by Hermione Granger's own fire in a jar trick!



Class: Transfiguration
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Beettons, Buttles?
Brief Description: I am just too good at Transfiguration it seems, or maybe I got super bored in detention and decided to re-purpose Snape's precious beetles, either way I have way more buttons than I know what to do with!
This wrap-around bracelet is made from braided twine and a mess of pretty buttons!

Welcome Roke! Nice to see that you have found the craftalong so quickly Smiley

Class: Alchemy
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Tea Cozy
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=416793.0
Brief Description:
My pots of tea cool down way too quickly, and I've never managed to do a proper heating charm. So when the wand wouldn't work, I turned to my crochet hook and stitched up a tea cozy. It's made from green yarn from an old favorite sweater that had gotten too big (you've seen it before in other projects) and some white stash yarn. Worth its weight in gold because I can make a pot of tea last for longer than half an hour. Fewer toilet stops necessary Smiley

OWL Update:

I made french onion soup today so I had LOTS of leftover onion skins!

I boiled them in some water and let it cook down until I had some color concentrate:

Next step: mordant!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Geminio Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Totoro Party!
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Themed birthday parties for my kids has always been my favourite thing to craft for and the littlest of the bunch asked for a My Neighbor Totoro party. Their hats were made using Simplicity pattern 1953 and the soot sprites were made from leftover fake fur. They will be used in a "Toss the soot sprite into the house" kind of game. I have to paint a house on cardboard and then cut holes in the windows for the kids to toss the sprites into. (This will go with the Catbus and Totoro cut-outs, once I actually cut them out.)
