House: Gryffindor

Class: Flying
Project Name: Astronomy Tower Shawlette

For those times you are studying Astronomy in the Tower...made to keep off the chill and blend into the night sky





..if on Ravelry, this is a free pattern; you can find it here.  Note, I did adjust this pattern to HDCs instead of SCs.

Class: Muggle Studies
Project Name: jennie pinned it shrug Grin

I made this shrug for dear jennie.  She pinned it awhile ago, and I knew I wanted to hook one up for her.  I hope she finds it a comforting & cozy piece, and perhaps my Hugging Charm is at work for it is the closest I get to giving her one.  Love you to pieces dearest jennie! Kiss


...again, free pattern!

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!
