Greetings and salutations, my fellow Hogwartians! Firstly, I want to thank those of you who have kindly left encouraging comments on my grand "Blow your wrists out knitting geekiness" project squares. I have 14 done now and am still going. Thinking of finding/inventing wearable wrist icepacks...
Congrats to MamanTattoo on her little Victor- so cute! Slytherins, the posted denial of baby requests in the common room remains in effect. If you are not familiar with that announcement see the bulletin board on page 2.
The quilt projects this summer have both encouraged and shamed me- please don't look at the O.W.L. list and certainly pay no mind to the proposal date of SEPTEMBER 8 under my name. Nope. Don't do it. That is not the O.W.L. you are looking for...
And now it is my pleasure to welcome a guest correspondent reporting on the S.P.E.W.
project posts of the week! So, without further ado I give you Sybill Trelawney with The Weekly S.P.E.W. REVIEW
Trelawney: *Blink. Blink.* (pause) Thank you, Thank you....
(A few minutes pass in an uncomfortable silence)
Me: Ahem, Sybill?
T: *Blink. Blink.* Hush! One cannot rush the inner eye to see!
M: Well, um, You don't need it really, the students posted everything already. We went over this before the broadcast, Sybill.
(Sound of sherry bottles shifting in deep robe pockets and the patter of typing on a keyboard)
T: Ahhhh, yes.... My inner eye is tuning into them annnnnd I can see them now...
M: Ah. Good. Shall we begin then?
T: (Pause) mmm, yessss.... Slytherin house has provided for the tiny feet of 4 little house elves...? No.... Babies... yes, babies in neeeeeed...... (*Blink. blink.*)
M: Oh, that's great! That must be Lelyonna. She's been on a roll with those cute booties.
T: ...yessss... and.... I see... A lion wearing a tiny striped hat and juggling.... a garden...
M: (sighs) Orrrr, maybe you see the cute baby beanie Pinkleo made for Bundles of Joy and the flower squares for Pine Ridge?
T: One cannot always interpret the visions of the inner eye.... It is a gift, and not all have been granted that gift...
M: Right. Well then, do you see anything else from last week's posts?
T: ... yess..... I see.... There are... Days for Girls moon pads made by... a badger...
M: Excellent, that would be Midkiffsjoy, she's been making those this summer. A good cause, that.
T: *Blink... Blink... stares off into nothingness...*
T: The eye is closing, I can see no more...
M: Great, tha-
T: WAIT! I see something new.... You.... You are in Great danger!
M: (To audience) Well, that's all the time we have today, folks! Thanks for tuning in and as we close out with a golden oldie from Celestina Warbeck here are the house standings as of right now:Gryffindor
Next week's password will be "Humperdink." Thank you all and Happy Crafting!
