Congrats, patty! Love that project!

Love that blue shawl, pinkleo!

Awesome afghan jennie!! And thanks for the tip on the onion skins. I was thinking of that, or tumeric, but I think the onion skins will be easier to find/use!

Challenge: Cauldron Treat
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Hogsmeade Nutty Yummies



Here are some treats I sent jennie & her hubby.  I've added recipe links to most.  These make great snacks, and the nut recipes really got me thinking that these would be fabulous as guy gifts for Xmas (for some reason I always have a hard time thinking of fab guy gifts...though I do tend to give them edible treats).  Enjoy! Grin

Madam Puddifoot's Tearoom Walnuts aka Kay's Fave Walnuts: recipe link, substituted walnuts for pecans & substituted cardamon for cloves

Muggle Brittle Bites: just peanut brittle cut into bite sized pieces...recipe link

Chinese Fireball Pecans: recipe link: added a bit more syrup, this one tied with Dragon Peanuts as my fave

Cloud Candy: aka Divinity...with pecans recipe link

Hog's Head Beetle Crunch: aka Pumpkin Spiced Almonds: recipe link, I suggest less cooking time so doesn't get too browned

Dragon Peanuts: recipe link, spicy...YUM!


jennie hubby treat aka Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios Bars: recipe link

Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Link: Gryffindor Jewelry Box


I wanted to create an aged, passed down (or treasure you stumbled upon in a second-hand shop in Diagon Alley) look.  So I beat, stained, battered, painted, sanded, oiled, rubbed with ash, and much more to create this my Aging Potion.  I was rather happy with the results. Grin  (I figured that since I was sending a jewelry box that I should fill it with jewelry. Wink)









And because I took a bunch of pics, I reducioed them; click small pics to activate engorio charm.

Congrats Patty - a much deserved WOTW!

Love the jewellery box pinkleo, it is beautiful and thank you for all those nut based recipes - will be trying some of those!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Altered Birthday Puzzle
Project Page Link: Birthday Altered Puzzle
Brief Description: I was dreading a certain big "-0" birthday this year, but actually it turned out to be not as bad as I thought. I decided to create this altered puzzle as a memory board in order to cheer myself up. I hope it is not considered too selfish using a cheering charm for myself!
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Shiny Sun
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: I have had an ocean themed ongoing altered puzzle that I have been working on, both by myself and through swaps, and one of the larger pieces that I wanted to do myself was a sun. I painted the sun in gold and bronze and then added a whole pile of shiny bits and pieces, including golden beads and sequins.
Project Picture:
The actual sun:

In place on the puzzle piece:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pi Pie
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: Every time I looked at the explanation of this class, I just kept thinking about Pie, so I just went with it! I have been wanting to start a hoopla collection for a while now - this is the first one I have done and I love it! I am definitely going to be making more (hooplas, not Pi Pies!  Grin ).
Project Picture:
Whole Pie:

I have not done any embroidery in years, so I am a little out of practice! My writing needs to get a lot neater!!

Pie Detail:

The pie crust was the bit that took the longest - I looked at loads of felt toy food pictures to get an idea of the look I wanted and then just winged it.

Class/Challenge: October Detention Challenge- Get Dirty
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Dirty, Naughty Awnings!
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Spring cleaning for me happens in autumn, when I can tolerate being outside for more than three minutes. As I was sweeping the cobwebs from the windows outside (probably should've left them til after Halloween), I decided to finally clean those nasty awnings that hang over the kitchen windows. Man, they were gross! Used water, Dawn, and good old elbow grease.
Before:

After:

Shiny!

I've been offline for ages working away from home and cramming for school too, but it's amlost worth it because i've had so much fun going over th last couple of weeks worth of posts from you guys Smiley Sooo much awesome stuff. I haven't had a lot of time for craft, and I'm still working on my OWL plus another fairly big project, but here's the little bit I've done with my feet up on my afternoon off today:

Class/Challenge: Voting is Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Rachel's Zip up coin purse

My friend crocheted me a beautiful hot water bottle cover for my MiLs birthday recently, and so i wanted to craft her something in return - on checking her pinterest I noticed that she had pinned a photo of a zip up coin purse I made a few months back, so I have done another one for her in appropriately patriotic red white and blue ribbon.
I basically followed this tutorial

I am already registered to vote. I think it's important because the people running your country have power over every aspect of your lives, and so you should make sure that you have a say in who they are.

Challenge/Class: Cauldron Treat / Herbology
House:
Project name: Sugar Free Stegosaurus* Biscuits
*and a few diplodocus

The other half is diabetic, and so I struggle to bake him cake and treats sometimes, I'm not the best chef anyway so if you take away a basic ingredient I get even more lost! (if you have any sugar free cake / biscuit recipes that you've tried and enjoyed I'd love it if you'd PM me them!)
But I do sometimes give sugar free baking a whirl and I thought I would see if I can come up with a good recipe for a basic biscuit, based on one I found online:
200g plain flour
150g butter
4 tablespoon sweetener (I use splenda)
handful crushed almonds **
vanilla essence **
all spice

** herbology side note: Almond and vanilla were amongst the plants we saw growing in india - we went on a plantation tour that showed us loads of plants and how they are harvested and used - most of them were to add flavour to food

cream butter & sweetener (this is not much like creaming normal butter sugar, since there is so much less sweetener!), then add flour, plus other ingredients to taste. Roll out to approx 1cm thick, put in fridge to chill for half hour.
Cut out biscuit shapes (I recommend all biscuits to be dinosaur shaped) and bake on gas mark 4 for about 15/20 mins til golden

I have to say these are a little flavourless for me, so I think next time I will add some almond essence and .. oh, I dunno, maybe some hazlenut chips or a sprinkle of something else tasty. But these are good enough to dunk in tea and that's good enough for me Smiley especially as the biscuit base is ok, and the texture/weight too. That was the main thing, since splenda does weird things when you cook with it.
These don't look to great since I am going to pick up sugar free icing tomorrow then drop that with the biscuits at SOs office tomorrow for him decorate his own
