Once again we find ourselves enjoying...

SPEW SUNDAY!

Let's all give a big round of applause to our students who have shown caring and consideration for those outside of themselves who may need a little cheering up, a helping hand, and/or some comfort in a time of need.  Here are the students who have submitted SPEW projects this week:

Kudos and thanks to:

PinkLeo for working up some comfy magic in her crochet squares for Pine Ridge and fancy cake for the H.S. Band auction!

Indigo_Roses (and her Mom!) for sending over 100 squares to Pine Ridge!

And JenLeahLynn for waving her wand to create beautiful stationery for Military personell to use to send letters home!

Thank you, ladies, for your good works for neighbors and strangers alike! 

As for myself, I have finished another baby blanket for my preemie package going to the local hospital.  Once I have a full set of hat+blanket/angel gown I will post a pic.  (I'm doing blankets first, then a gown and then the hats. Longest to shortest working duration.)

Thanks to everyone who shares their skills for others, I hope I didn't miss a listed SPEW project, if so do let me know so that I can give you a proper shout out.  Going into this next week I look forward to the creative ways the students will work SPEW projects into the class assignment prompts. 

Happy Crafting!

Challenge: Locket Horocrux
House: Ravenclaw
Project: cat plate hoop
So, Thinking about the locket, I kept coming back to the idea of umbridge wearing it and pretending it was from her pure blood ancestry. I decided to make a cat-plate like the ones decorating her walls, but to make this one a little darker to reveal her true nature

It's black velvet riveted to black leather, and black satin middle with gold thread couching

Class: CoMC
House: GO EAGLES
Project: Shades of grey hoop
This hoop commemorates one of my favorite books, Shades of Grey (It is VERY different to 50 Shades of Grey)

but what does that have to do with bowtruckles? Well, I've never been a particularly vengeful person, but if something tried to gouge my eyes out, I'll be grabbing that spoon off the wall to retaliate byt going for theirs in return. maybe it's not caring for the magical creatures so much as 'taking care' of them...

YAY SPEW Sunday!  And I'm here with a few more SPEW Squares, this time for Knit a Square! Grin

Class: SoAR + SPEW
House: Gryffindor
Gryffindor Extra Credit: ~*use symbol in craft*~ Square symbol representing the natural (structured) order of the universe: four cardinal directions (north, south, east, west), four major season (winter, spring, summer, autumn), four cosmic elements (suns, moons, planets, stars), four common phases of human life (birth, child, adult, death), and four prime elements (fire, earth, air, water).
Gryffindor Quidditch: Chaser ~*crafting three of something or three items that go together*~
Project Name: 4 Destashing KAS Squares
Charity: Knit-a-Square
Brief Description: Studying the runic character Wunjo fits perfectly into my desire to use my crafty magic for charitable causes because I am always working blessings of comfort and joy into my work.  Here are 4 squares I crocheted for Knit-a-Square which collects squares to send to South Africa where they are made up into blankets for children living in impoverished conditions.

~*Headmistress Memo*~


Dear Students and Staff,

     As Deputy Headmistress jennieingram mentioned earlier, I am going on vacation.  I will be away Monday, March 11 through Friday, March 15.  I will not be getting on the internet during my vacation.  (I will not even be taking my yarn!)  I shall miss you while away.  But I will return Saturday, March 16 and quickly settle in to browse what wondrous projects have been posted, update classes & challenges, award badges/certificates, and activate my Magic Quill & House Points Spell.  No fears or fretting though, your Deputy Headmistress will be around to approve OWLs & NEWTs, and students & staff are always here to help you with any of your questions. 

     Now, you are probably wondering where I am off to.  Well, I am spending the week in the muggle "magical" land known as Disney World, and yes, I shall also be popping by Hogsmeade. Cool  My family is overjoyed!  So until we meet again, I send you all blessings of joy, inspiration, and luck.

Blessed Be,
Headmistress pinkleo
