OWL Subject & Option (if available): Potions, Option 1
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Bear Down Quilt
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques used, any fun tips, etc.)  I melded together four different fabrics into one pretty large quilt.  It covers the entire top and some of the sides of my queen sized bed!!  For the 'bears" block I was inspired by a quilt I had seen on Etsy and loved how the block framed the team fabric.  After trying for a while to come up with another block on my own without success I turned to my resources and found the "solids" block in the book Modern Blocks: 99 Quilt Blocks from Your Favorite Designers by Susanne Woods.  And I think it fits perfectly.  I had the most trouble when it came to finishing everything off.  I tried straight line quilting, and ripped it out... I tried meandering in white, and ripped it out... then I tried meandering in navy, and again ripped it out.  I finally settled on hand tying at the corners and center of each block, which I love because it leaves all the focus on the design.  It was defiantly a bear (pun intended) to get completed by my deadline; but I succeeded.  Hooray!!!

Wow, congratulations on the finished OWLs guys!  I'm not sure if mine will be done by my self-imposed date of Dec. 1, although my parents are coming for a visit so they can help baby watch while I craft  Cheesy  That quilt is great, and I'm so impressed by the dyeing attempt!  The patches are cute too.

I just realised that the Christmas wreath I made is PERFECT for the Gemino challenge!

Challenge: Gemino
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Winter Twilight wreath
Link:  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417130.0

I made this using the tutorial here: http://www.eddieross.com/eddie_ross/2008/12/no-wire-hangers-well-maybe-just-one.html that's been pinned all over Pinterest, including by me.  It's at least 2/3 of a tube of 100 baubles, on a wire hanger.  I'm awfully proud of it, and it only took a couple hours (mostly because I'm finicky about colour and shape placement).

OWL Subject & Option (if available): Charms
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Counter for Confundus
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: In order to rid myself of the confusion of spinning, I decided I would spin 12 ounces of wool. The charm has not completely worn off (there's a bit left around the wheel), but I feel fairly confident using a drop spindle now! Smiley
Project Picture:
Here's all of the yarn I spun from those 12 ounces (plus my very first trial skein)


A close-up of my first OWL skein and my last...


I made a 2-ply!


I wasn't as prompt as I should have been with posting this. I've spun some additional yarn since finishing my first 12 ounces.


And even though neither of these were technically part of the OWL, here's my very first handspun compared with my most recent.


In conclusion... YARN!!!

Project: Ironman Chair

I'd love to see a pixie go up against Ironman... and so I've made my Ironman chair to sit on while I study for DADA - I'm hoping having his face pushed up against my bum will be a source of inspiration(!)


Hope you guys like it Grin

err... about a weeks worth of evenings, I guess, but broken up by drying time. I spent a couple of evenings at work cutting out panels and sorting them into some piles of various sizes (to make it easier to find what I wanted once I had gluey fingers!), then an evening doing the legs/ bottom of seat - left it a couple of days sitting upside down on the floor, then another 2 evenings doing the seat and back, and just double checking that I was happy with the colour variation / placement of everything and that I hadn't missed any bits around the joints. left it to dry again, then varnished it (again in two parts - bottom then top - but it only takes an hour or so to varnish each half).
It does want another coat of varnish I think - but I couldn't resist getting some pictures today as the weather/light was actually pretty good which is a rarity in London in the winter!

@Abbee: Crafty Magic doesn't alway go as planned Undecided, but we always learn from the process. Smiley  I'm just happy no cauldron exploded, and you did get a bit of cloth to play with.

@Audania1: I adore muffs; they're so cozy! Cool And your alterations clever.

@FiberAlchemist: Shocked Just FANTABULOUS!!!  Love your block choices and adore the tied quilting.  Well Done!

@jenleahlynn: fab badges, love the designs you chose...I think the Puff is my fave. ...oh, and I put you in Gryffindor, let me know if you wanted to swtich houses Grin

@tiamatfire: Remember that if you are not done with your OWL by the end of the Fall Semester, it carries over to the Winter. Grin  Gorgeous Wreath!!!  LOVE the colors!  (I would be all finicky too!)  And Kiss for the link!

@indigo_roses: HANDSPUN YARN!  LOVE!  What a wondrous spellwork!  Way to go on finishing your OWL and conquer that Confundus Spinning Spell. Cool

@noodle-bug: Shocked That is one awesome chair!  ....a pixie doesn't stand a chance! Wink
