Well, it's 5 hours later, and I haven't gotten to sit down to craft yet.  But I did make an awesome dinner of Zucchini pancakes & Golden Garlic Potatoes.  Now I'm really going to my living room to crochet!  (Heads to the kitchen to start tomorrow's lunches...  who knows if she'll ever make it to the couch.)

Great detention noodle-bug!

I've got my new OWL proposal ready:

Class: OWL - Care of Magical Creatures, option 1
House: Gryffindor
Name: 1st birthday

It's my daughter's first birthday this month, and I have some little things I want to put together for her party.  She's going to get two, really, as we're having a little one with friends on the weekend before it, and another little one with my parents and sister when they come out for Easter.  I propose to make her invitations, a banner, wreath, etc. decorated with gnomes and birdies.  Gnomes (the muggle fairy-tale kind) are magical to muggles, and little birdies of the style I'm using always make me think of the talking and singing birds a la Disney Wink

EDIT: to slightly change theme!

I feel so behind. I am soooo glad I have a Room of Requirement now! (AKA a craft room) So now I can really get to work on my classes and maybe even an owl!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Artisan Bread
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: When I think of attractive scents, I think of fresh bread straight from the oven.  That would definitely be a part of my Amortentia. Took a class last week on making Artisan Bread and decided it was time to try it out and make my house full of delicious warm bread scent. Tried to do a lightning bolt scar across the top, but it didn't show from the oven quite as well as I'd hoped.  Either way it was a great tasting potions experiment!
Project Picture:




Basic No Knead Bread

3 c lukewarm water
1 1/2 TBSP yeast
6 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 TBSP salt

Add ingredients together until there isn't any dry flour and it has turned into a shaggy mess.  Allow it to sit on the counter for approx 2-5 hours.  Store in fridge until ready to make bread, up to 2 weeks.
When ready to make a loaf of bread, take a ball of dough about the size of a grapefruit and shape into a ball, folding the all up under itself.  Allow to sit in a slightly warm spot for about 40 minutes.  Preheat oven to 500*   Slash top of loaf to allow for expansion. 
Hint- use a piece of parchment paper with cornmeal sprinkled to make is easier to move into the oven.
Turn oven down to 475*, bake in preheated dutch oven or on a baking stone with a cover over it for 25 minutes.  Turn the oven down to 375*, take the lid off the bread and bake for a final 25 minutes.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Knitted Mini Flying Carpet
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques/recipe used, any fun tips, etc.) I got a new Pocket Knitter so I could learn to knit and I was playing around with it. My first project failed but I tried it again and made a flying carpet! I tied some yarn to each corner to make the tassels.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

Class: Alchemy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pumpkin Pasties
Project Page Link (if available):Recipe Here
Brief Description: So I went the safe route for Alchemy and cooked something. I was really eager to try out this Pumpkin Pastie recipe which is sirius-ly simple and quite tasty. However, when my family smells pumpkin they immediately think it's Pumpkin Wontons and were sorely disappointed when I presented the pasties. Instead of ice cream, I made whipped cream and I'll add that recipe, too.


Yum!


For those of you who want to try something super delish, here is the Pumpkin Wonton recipe.


    1 cup canned pumpkin
    2 Tbs. maple syrup
    3 Tbs. light brown sugar
    1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
    16 packaged wonton wrappers
    Granulated sugar for dusting
    Ground cinnamon for dusting

    Preheat oven to 400F. In medium bowl, mix pumpkin, maple syrup, brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice.
    Place one wonton wrapper flat on work surface. Spoon 1 Tbs. filling into center. Moisten edges of wonton with water and fold in half to form triangle. Press edges to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and wontons.
    Arrange filled wontons on ungreased baking sheet. Lightly coat wontons with nonstick cooking spray and sprinkle each with sugar and cinnamon.
    Bake until golden, about 16 minutes. Turn and bake 2 more minutes. Set baking sheet on wire rack to cool.

Of course you can always deep fry them instead of baking and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar afterward. This is where I don't tell you that I always fry them. Shhhh! The whipped cream is easy-

   Freeze mixing bowl and beater for 10 minutes. Remove from freezer and add one cup heavy whipping cream. Place frozen veggies under mixing bowl (I used tortellini today) and beat on med-high 'til soft peaks form. Add 1 or 2 teaspoons vanilla and 4 Tablespoons sifted confectioner's sugar and beat 'til stiff peaks form. Viola!

Now I have to go peek at everyone's assignments. I heard something about shoes....

It's kind of like a loom but its got pegs on the top and bottom and it makes knitting very easy.
