I'M DONE!  My O.W.L. IS DONE!   *doing the Happy Dance*

OWL Subject & Option (if available): Study of Ancient Runes -- options 1 and 2
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Runic Alphabet Wall Hanging
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: After doing extensive research on the "net", I chose to make a wall hanging displaying the "Elder Futhark" runic alphabet.  My grandchildren needed this for their SoAR studies.  The hanging contains the symbol, its name, and the English letter/letters it represents.  Their comment was..."now we can write notes and no one can read them".  (Little do they know) I designed some Celtic knot-work for the top of the scroll and a dragon for the bottom. The embroidery is done in Black-work on 14 count Aida cloth, so it would be easier to see from across the room.  It took several weeks to complete the Black-work.

I hung the scroll using a black rope, but decided I did not like the look.


 So I went to my Kumihimo loom and braided a new cord in red, white and black, making it shorter in the process.  I have used this particular braid many times and the placement of the colors is very important.  I used 6 packages of embroidery floss for each bobbin.




This is the completed scroll.  I am very happy with my completed project.


BTW... I call BINGO!!  I have now finished row 1 across (OWL -->Complete all Quidditch Projects) and B down (OWL --> Complete every Detention)  GO EAGLES!!

@ noodle-bug -- thank you very much for the compliment.  I love doing Kumihimo.  Many of my necklaces use Kumihimo braids in place of chains.  I am looking forward to making a lead rope for a magical creature in the future.

That scroll is so very beautiful! The knot and the dragon impresses me the most, cause i could never make anything that pretty.
Good call on the colouring of the rope too, it fits very well =)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Initial camera cover
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427023
Brief Description:
After I made myself a camera cover, my sister asked if I could please make her one too. I gladly obliged and knitted this cover with her first initial. This cover will protect her camera on her trip to Greece in three weeks.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Bean - Honey
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Blackberry harvest
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=427022
Brief Description:
My blackberry harvest is way too late for the Blackberry bean, but it actually beautifully fits this honey bean! I mean, blossoms count as flowers right? I've been tending our garden, losing many battles (our cherries died because of wood lice, our grapes blossomed but didn't develop fruit, our rocket salad was munched up by caterpillars overnight) but on one plant, I won: we got the woodlice away from the blackberry bush before the blossoms were wilting and the fruit started developing and this is the first ripe batch, with some berries still ripening. They're rather sour, but should be great to make jams. I munched up these first 150 grams just plain though, I quite like tart Smiley

Hello Crafty Witches & Wizards! Grin

I can't believe that the Summer Semester is coming to a close.  (honestly, where did the summer go?!?!

HPC STAFFERS: Please PM if you would like to stay on staff and any ideas you have for Fall Classes.  I will living on Craftster this weekend, but please note that in RL Friday, I have teaching during the day and a home football I must attend (yup, I'm a band mom!)

I can't wait to get into my groove because I've been having serious HPC & Craftster withdrawal.

Okay, sorry for the fly-by, but I'm needed to help with DD Writing Assignment and must feed DS before he heads out for his evening band practice.  Wishing everyone bright blessings! Kiss

Everyone's projects have been awesome!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Sand Hieroglyphs
Brief Description: Curse breakers work quite a bit in Egypt and there they must deal with lots of egyptian hieroglyphs. I thought Id make some of my own with some sand dough and carve my name into. My only suggestions dont use paver sand from the hardware store (it has some largish rocks in it) and dont over do it with the flour because you lose the sandy color.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bean: Honey
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Flower Dishcloth and Tiger Lily Frame
Project Link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/starfish-dishcloths
Brief Description: I wanted to try out the starfish dishcloth pattern because one can never have enough. I didnt actually read the directions completely on my first attempt and I ended up with a flower instead of a starfish. I couldn't bear to pull it apart and so decided to submit this flower as part of my honey bean. Our Tiger Lillies needed their stems trimmed and the dried stems are the perfect crafting material. So I made this 5x7 frame with them.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Starry Dishcloths
Project Link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/starfish-dishcloths
Brief Description: My second attempt at the starfish pattern was a lot more successful, I actually followed the pattern.  I choose the blue and yellow to represent the lovely stars in the night sky.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defence Against the Dark Arts
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hinkypunk Baby Hat
Project Link: http://allicrafts.blogspot.com/2013/01/free-pattern-thick-and-thin-striped.html#more
Brief Description: I saw this baby hat pattern and had to try it. I used the grey to represent the smoke-colored hinkypunk and the yellow as the lamp.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hot Dishcloths
Project Link: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/starfish-dishcloths
Brief Description: I had to do a few more of these dishcloths. I did these three in some fiery colors.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Cherry Baby Hat
Project Link: http://allicrafts.blogspot.com/2011/02/free-pattern-baby-earflap-hat-newborn.html
http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cowboy-boots
Brief Description: I love the deep red color of cherries and I had the perfect color yarn in my stash. So I whipped up these cute boots and adorable hat to honor this delicious fruit.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Pride
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: TARDIS Potholders
Brief Description: My lil sis is headed off to college and I decided to make her a small care package. I made her these blue potholders with the TARDIS on them because she loves Doctor Who and whose kitchen doesnt need some more Whovian in it?
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Dont Blink Pillowcase
Brief Description: This is also included in the lil siss care package. Sleep is very important for a college study, I know I never could get enough of it. I made her this pillowcase just in case she needs a small nap in class.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Whovian Water bottle
Brief Description: Growing up in Texas most of my fond camping memories involved drinking lots of water. So it was naturally fitting that my camping necessity would be my water bottle. It was the perfect blank canvas from some Sharpie art inspired by my favorite Whovian webcomic.
Project Picture:


And with that I'm calling BINGO!
I've got N and G down, COMC across and Detention to Quidditch diagonally.
