Class/Challenge/House Pride: Horcrux - Diadem
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Floo Powder
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Fiendfyre on your tail?  Use that fire to your advantage.  Keep a jar of floo powder around and get out before the fire gets hot!  Great to keep on your mantle to use before your personal fire. 
~~wasn't sure if I wanted to post this or not as it was a swap item and -sigh- broke in transit.  Oh well, guess it might inspire someone out there.  At least chughes was able to put the label to use on her own floo powder jar!

Got to rant briefly about my NEWT. I didn't consider how weighty this quilt is and that is making it incredibly difficult to sew. Also, due to the stretchiness of the shirts, I have had issues with bunching.  There are innumerable pins in it yet it still stretches. For the past hour I have rolled the quilt to make it more manageable, sewn a tiny way, turned the quilt, rerolled, and sewed some more. My kids will be graduated before I get this thing right! At this point, I am considering hand sewing the darned thing. WAAAAAAHHH!!!!
 

Did you use interfacing for the tee shirts?   Undecided

class/challenge: horcrux hunt-harry-/ spew
house- gryffendor
project name-lilly card

i saw the link to operation write home on the spew website and i thought it was such a cool idea. they collect handmade cards and send them to people serving in the military to use when writing home to their families. our church is putting together care packages so i decided to make some cards to include. i left the insides blank so they can be used for more than one type of occasion.

this one is a hand drawn easter lilly about the size of an atc card.  matted on paisly paper and a dark green card stock. since the inside of the card is dark, i lined it in lighter green paper so the writing will show up.


class/challenge-arithamancy/ spew
house-gryffendor
project-boy/girl card set


instead of creating cards one by one, i tried a more massed produced approach. i measured out a grid on watercolor paper, then stamped images from the same set in waterproof ink. then added color with watercolor pencils. the fabric flowers are some that i recieved in the givers/needers swap. they came with a set of matching rub-ons, so it was easy to coordinate colors in the diffrent layers. i quickly made 2 of each style.

class/challenge: aparrition
house: gryffendor
project-birthday cards




once i had the layout and colors in mind, it was easy to create more than one cards on the same theme. the cake slice is a rubon accented with watercolor pencil. the cupcake was from the same rubon set but was to small, so i drew it larger.


same idea, same layout, but a solid card instead of the dots.

Shadowmere is creepy cool, FreakieGeekie.

Beautiful OWL, jenleahlynn and I love all your cards!

Awesome stuff as usual, patty.

Yay for sewing machine, Maman! Look out!

pottermouth - oh no! I've been thinking I'm going to tie my quilt with embroidery floss. I might have to patch it over the years, but I think it's the most likely way I'm ever going to finish this thing. I'm sure you'll figure something out. It was looking sooo cool!!

:: Rummages around desk examining various scrolls and lookingfor her quill. Finally, she pulls out a wand and flicks it at desk which causes everything to jump to attention and organize itself beautifully.  She picks up a quill and a scroll and sets to writing hercomments::

So many great projects have been posted! Good work, students, lets keep our momentum chugging right along now.  Here are some comments on the assignments in no particular order:

CHughes: those shoes! I have no words...so amazing!

PinkLeo: SPEW to the rescue! Those squares look great! I love that they are similar yet different. If worked together into one blanket they would add a lot of interest even if all the same color. Great work!

JennieIngram: I hope you have been able to get some relaxing and yarning time after all your big chore time over the weekend.  That bracelet is fabulous as always and I checked out your spotlighted wooden game and it is soo cool! Very inspirational for upcoming gift giving!

Noodlebug: I love your use of practice knitting for the mug hugs- that's a great idea! I do love me my stash-busting!  And your wee "Meep" hoop is very cute. Smiley

Patty-O:  That is one fine looking bread!  I can practically smell it... mmmm...... with butter melting just so.... mmm.... ::Eyes glaze over and mouth starts watering til she snaps out of it.::    oh, and I'm so sorry to hear your Floo pot broke in transit! That is such a bummer, it was so stinkin' cute!

PotterMouth: The recipes look delish- can you tell me the correct pronunciation of pasties? I tried googling them and got an eyefull of stripper costumes! oops!

Audania: Speaking of recipes, what a great idea to be a Kitchen Elf!  I loved that cookbook (got it from library for a little light reading) and only had a few differences in translations.   Mainly I find it difficult to swallow that a "Cauldron Cake" would be a pancake.  Unless it's a Brit thing to buy loose pancakes and eat them as snacks on a train.  It makes much more sense that they would be cupcakes, don't you agree? Anyway, you seem to be full of great ideas- I love that hat ornament! I love that you are thinking ahead to the holidays when the pressure of deadline is much less.  Well played!

IndigoRoses: Yay, SPEW Squares! They look great and so very plentiful!  I love the socks, too.  One day soon I hope to try m wand at a nice pair of socks.  Good luck with the cables, they really are pretty straightforward once you get the hang of it. I know you'll ace them!

Erin:  Nice headband!  I love the creativity there. Keep making Slytherin proud!

Naantje: The scarf looks great! I'm glad to see you you tried new skills and achieved greatness- how very Slythee of you!

Moonflame: Pretty stitch markers!  love them!

Abbeeroad: Love the diary page flag idea, how unique!  It would look great in a classroom or over a kid's homework station, too. The tooth monster looks so fun!

FreakieGeekie: That is one shiny dark horse you got there.  Good work on redesigning it!  I still want to get a glimpse at your Snape doll, too. Smiley

Pottermouth: I feel your quilty pain.  Best of luck, I know you will prevail!

Jenleahlynn: Congrats on taking the leap and putting yourself out there- good luck with the show!  I love your cards, too.  Thanks for crafting for SPEW!

I hope I didn't forget anybody, if so please know that it wasn't intentional.  I'm up to my robe sleeves in job hunting scrolls and plans for upcoming projects and my Crup has an insatiable Frisbee need. In the snow. *sigh*

Keep up the great work everyone!

Thanks AntBee! The pancake one was a bit much for me, too. When I go through these I'm really aiming for what I could picture in the book, you know? I'm also going to try and make it a weekly to biweekly thing instead of monthly. There are just too many yummy things!

I also have an ulterior motive in making the hats - stash busting! I'm really trying to use up my scraps. I've made a deal with myself to not buy any fabric this year and use what I have. Seriously, this may be the cheapest Christmas ever in terms of gifts, but they take me forever to make! Like an hour per hat, it's kind of ridiculous but it's a lot of fun.

Good luck with the job stuff! Sending good thoughts and prayers!!

Ant Bee, thank you for commenting on everyone's goodies...I haven't had the opportunity to do so, yet, but I agree with all that you said! As far as the pronunciation of "pasties" goes, I think it depends on how much British television you watch!

jennie- I interfaced the bejesus out of the shirts before sewing the borders around them. The bunching is happening where two corners of the shirts meet. This probably has something to do with my method of sewing the backing to the front panel. Last night I put the machine on the floor, rolled the two sides of the quilt, aligned the place I had to sew, and pressed the foot pedal with my knee, all while attempting to stitch in the ditch. This, of course, was impossible to do accurately since I had to hang on to the rolled sides because it is too heavy to feed through the machine. Luckily, it IS a punk rock quilt so it's DIY all the way.  Cheesy
