I'm taking a cue from jennie on this one...as long as I'm making this big craft, I may  as well get some house points for it, right?!?

OWL Proposal:
OWL Subject: Herbology (HINT!!)
House: Gryffindor!!
Project Name: Secret OAHPT OWL for MamanTattoo
Brief Description:

For this OWL, I will be crafting a _______ ______ _______ ___. I'll be using some recycled materials as a base, and mainly wool felt to cover/embellish. I'm not sure this would be found in just any witch or wizard's garden, but Maman will be able to boast one in hers Wink!

Since this is for the OAHPT swap, and will have to travel from the US to Canada, it will most likely carry over into next semester, but I'm setting my initial complete date of three weeks from now (2/27/13). We'll see how it goes...

Also, I want to keep this as much a surprise as possible for Maman, so let me know if you need details in a PM, pinkleo! Thanks!!

Don't worry Abbee, I'm still very clueless and intrigued!!!

I bought a sewing machine sunday. It was a demo (Kenmore, at sears, because I'm tired of waiting for a good used Bernina or Janome, there's NONE in the classified pub) SO. I arrive home, and the sellers ommited to include the pedal and the manual. You can't possibliy imagine how full-of-pregnancy-hormone me was upset. I cried, to say the least.
Monday I had a stomach bug and couldn't go. Yesterday was recovering from the bug!  So I'm heading there today in this giant store with the kids, possibly alone, to fix that.

So here's where's my OWL at. I've finished the boots for triplet costume and the Wig. I thing the wig could have been an OWL by itself!!! ahah

Maman- beautiful doll!!! What a sweet face.

jennie- your Celestial Spheres Bracelet makes me think of a student that has crept up to the Astronomy Tower to be alone with some chocolate, hot butterbeer, and the sky. It is lovely.

Class/Challenge: Horcrux Hunt/Nagini
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Sssssquare for SPEW
Brief Description: Still using the 200 Blocks book, pinkleo! Here's another that resembles Nagini. (Peepers is holding down one of the wonky corners...)


And some NEWT progress:

Only eleven more blocks to border and then arrange in the right order. It is going along pretty well and looking all right, but I "don't want to count my dragons before they're hatched!"

Sock Knitters!  If you are on Ravelry, you can pick up a V-day freebie, True Love by Chrissy Gardiner  Follow instructions on page.  Good until Feb. 14th. Cool

Thanks! I just downloaded it. Smiley I know I don't have any yarn in my stash that would work well for V-day socks, but maybe they'll get knit for 2-14-14!

Hi guys, I'm back. Everyone's making great things and sharing some really fun idioms!

Here's 3 from me:

Challenge: Flourish & Blotts
House: Slytherin

~"You can't judge a quill by its feather." Meaning: appearances may be deceiving.

~"Close but no knut!" Meaning: almost but not quite.  Originating from wizarding carnival games where the winner earned knuts as prizes.

~"Wand(s) over broomstick(s)." Meaning: totally, completely.  Most often used in reference to falling in love. "Filch was so totally wands over broomsticks when it came to Umbridge that at the slightest "Hem hem." he would jump to do her bidding. (accepted both singular and plural)

Dancing Dumbledores, this is fun!

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.

Apparating in for a quick project post....

Class: Alchemy + SPEW
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Baby Gryffie Hat
Charity: Bundles of Joy
Brief Description: That's right, the baby hats return; can't seem to stay away from these cuties!  This one is headed out to the Pine Ridge Reservation OB Ward.
Project Picture:



Challenge: February Detention Destash Dash!
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: One can never have too many dishcloths.
Brief Description: Yes, I admit it...I'm a yarn hoarder!  I have stacks of skeins stashed everywhere!  So I definitely needed to serve my time in the dungeons.  Who knows how long this cotton yarn has been in my possession; I do know that the red has been lurking in my collection since 2008!
