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

Challenge: July Quidditch/Portkey
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hagrid Cork-key (ring)
Brief Description: It finally quit raining on us so we took the opportunity to run about and place our portkey.
First, we went downtown and considered the Lucas Theatre, but realized Mary Poppins was showing and couldn't risk our cork-key being discovered by the Julie Andrews fans.



Tried River Street next, but got bumped by some Muggle tourists and had to go down two flights of uber steep stairs to retrieve cork-key. Hmmm.



Saw some promise at The Olde Pink House Restaurant but then noticed that their special of the day was Shrimp and Grits and knew there would be a swarm there, so...



Carriage tour?



Phone box?



Old live oak?



I know, I know! Bonaventure Cemetery! Kinda spooky there...



How about an old Victorian?



By this point, we realized that we ran into this same problem last year and decided again to chuck the cork-key in the backyard. If it works, don't fix it. (But I had fun sharing our city!)

Your town is gorgeous - thanks for sharing!

Class: Flying - (SHINY)
House; ravenclaw
ravenclaw extra credit: history of magic
Project: bad physics humour hoops

the most famous goblin rebellion is, of course, the 1612 Rebellion - the rebellions as a whole were most prevalent in the 1600 & 1700s. Likewise, Blackwork embroidery was also most popular in the 1600s, particularly in the Tudor courts.
I have paid homage to Blackwork by keeping a simple black on white design for these hoops

oh, those SHINY bits? Those are the flashing LEDS I built in.
Hell yhea. I discovered conductive thread and boy oh boy am I one happy crafty nerd Cheesy

(next, I'm buying a sewable arduino. I went past squeeing into a sort of frozen mute ecstatic comatose state)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology - Cherries!
House: Sssssslytherin!
Project Name: Bourbon Cherries
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I've seen Bourbon Cherries before, but none made out of the Rainer variety (aka my favorite kind!). I didn't have a fancy cherry pitter, so I just used a chopstick to push the pits out. Then pour your favorite Bourbon over the cherries. Shake once every few days and steep for about a month. I am sure I will lose patience before then, but I will try my best!  Cheesy
Project Picture:

They look so pretty! I can't wait to see how it all turns out! You can use the flavored Bourbon in cocktails and eat the cherries as a boozy snack or on top of ice cream!   Wink

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Two Hearts and a Prayer Baby Blanket
Brief Description: Last month some dear friends of mine welcomed their baby grandson into the world. Only a few days after he was born he had to undergo his first open heart surgery and it may not be his only one. Trying to find a way to show my support and give comfort to my friends and their family I decided to break out the knitting needles. I kind of made it all up as I went along and didn't have a particular color scheme in mind (I just busted through my stash mainly). Ultimately I came up with two hearts to symbolize a strong heart and also the many pieces of love, prayers and energy that were sent his way; an Om symbol so that he would always be covered with a prayer, among other things; and the letter H, because his name is Harry.
Project photos: I was having trouble really capturing the details on camera, so I am going to post a few different shots and hope that you can see them Smiley

NEWT Subject: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Constellation Gemini Quilts

Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=425682.0#axzz2ZGDZEJAO
Brief Description:  For my NEWT I studied the constellation Gemini, and created TWO quilts for my second cousins.  (The girls are not twins, but second baby has just come along, and I never got around to a quilt for first baby, so might as well make one for both!)  Both quilts were made from the Giant Star Block Quilt Pattern by Jeni at In Color Order.  Since the pattern is so big, I scaled them down to be more kid sized.  The blocks came to 9" finished, and the quilts are 36" square.

Project Picture: 










I have to say that I really loved how these came together.  The color schemes shifted ever so slightly during the cutting process, but other than that, it was pretty smooth sailing.  I loved the simplicity of the design, and the idea of using a single block as an entire quilt.  I'd still like to get around to making a full sized one.  Possibly for a guest room in our future house.  I'm sure I can dig up some vintage fabrics to make it a Burrow-esque quilt.
