that shirt-turned-bag is awesome!! I need something like that to catch all of my threads and fabric scraps when I am sewing or embroidering. I keep telling myself I am going to make one and then look at lazy me!!

The knitted hat is really good! I can't believe you drafted your own pattern. I am just learning to knit. I have a skein of yarn and some needles in my purse and I'm "working on" a "scarf" whenever I have sitting out and about time. Man, I am slow. lol

Jennie, I always love your charm bracelets.  Smiley Your bookmarks are super amazing, too! I think my favorites are the mermaid (who doesn't love a mermaid?) and the tree of life.

Challenge: Fear of a Name
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: One Tiny Thing Halloween Hoop
Brief Description: Cross stitching and I have never gotten along. When I was a kid I'd attempt those little Christmas ornament kits and botch them every time, so I never tried again. 30 years, I mean 20 years!, later I thought I'd give it another go. The pattern is 61 stitches by 61 stitches and measures almost 2" square. Sheesh! Who makes a pattern that small?! Well, at least I finished it and conquered my fear.

I absolutely love the placement of the image.  The fact that the text was off to the side looked completely intentional to me.

Thank you! Haha well what I meant was, when I sewed it the first time, the text was almost wrapping around to the back. Where it is now is exactly where I wanted it - after I ripped it out and redid it!  Cheesy Glad y'all like it.

SUPER cute cross stitch, pottermouth! I'm not a fan of cross stitch either... congrats on finishing it.

Love your bookmarks, Mistress Jennie, I could use a few of them myself at the moment!

Challenge: Pumpkin Bean
House: Gryffindor
Name: Owl Pumpkin

Well, a real pumpkin is definitely a fall colour!  I carved this pumpkin for Hallowe'en, and it was a hellish experience.  The flesh of the pumpkin came off in thick strings, which meant it made a mess as I tried to keep the inside neat, and there's no substance to hold the carved pieces together - I had to use toothpicks to put the inner section of the owl back on.  There's no denying it's kind of cute, but I can't imagine it's going to last very well until Hallowe'en!  Oh well, at least there's the pumpkin my daughter painted.

I am very happy about this semester! So many awesome projects that people are making! (It is the official start of crafting season!)

It seems like I've been turning in alot of projects. It's probably because I am. A couple weeks ago I got a new job and it was a terrible fit for me and after much discussion -- I quit. Now I'm trying to live like I'm very poor ('cause I will be soon) so lots of crafting has been going on. (Please send good job-finding vibes my way if you have any!) Anyway....here are three more homework assignments to turn in! One (Luna's Halloween costume) I'm really excited about!

Class: Muggle Studies
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Kitty Case
Project Page Link: Not my link but here's the pattern I used on Ravelry
Brief Description: I didn't quite know what to make for this class so I went hunting on Ravelry for coin purse patterns and this is what I found. Perfect for Halloween! Now I have something wonderful I can pop my muggle phone (my parents dislike receive owls so I have to call and text the muggle way...) and some muggle cash into and I blend in and I'm ready to go!
Project Picture:



Class: Potions
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: I've been feeling "off" for the past week or so, so it was the perfect time to brew up some magically delicious homemade soup. I don't really have a recipe to share because I kind of just did it based off of a couple different recipes I found online. [Here is the impressive part though--I'm really proud of mysef: I made my own chicken stock! I was so proud of myself. We had a Costco rotisserie chicken and after we were done (we usually only eat the breasts and legs) I picked that chicken apart and had enough chicken leftover for next night's dinner, and I used the bones to make stock. I'm super proud because I find it absolutely disgusting to pick into meat like that but I went into a different zone and just dealt with it. I'm pleased with myself. And so was my husband -- he wouldn't be able to do it. Lol.]
Project Picture:


Project Name: House Pride - Gryffindor!
House: Gryffindor!
Project Page Link: None
Brief Description: I haven't taken "official" pictures yet but I just couldn't wait to share. Although her namesake is a Ravenclaw - this costume is all Gryffindor. She's a lion tamer for Halloween! The colors even match Gryffindor. Smiley I still haven't made a top hat yet. We'll see if I get around to it. Cheesy

Here is your quote:

I know what you mean. But the "remains" are wonderful!!!! Keep picking at the meat!!! Super job! Glad you enjoyed the proceeds! There is nothing better than homemade soup, and you don't need a recipe! Just add what you have and make it wonderful. Nobody will notice if you left something out, or swapped it for something different.
Great Job! Glad you had success. Pat yourself, because I can't reach you...but here is your kiss  Kiss

I get so frustrated with friends who say they can't cook, but can follow the instructions on the back of a box. Those are horrible. I don't like them. I can make it up better than the box! Measure this, measure that....yea...just fudge it and throw it all in how you like it!  Cheesy Great job. It will all make a turd  Grin

Thanks! I remember how slow I was on my first few projects. The first one was a simple wash cloth, simply knit every row, second one was a scarf (actually, the scarf from this picture!). I hadn't quite mastered the purl stitch yet: I unknowingly twisted my purl stitches... The scarf seemed to take forever and considering that I started knitting it in late October and only finished it in March, when it was still 80 cm short of my husband's desired length, because at 157cm I felt it was sufficiently long and I really was fed up with it. Which knitting style do you use? English, continental or Portuguese? I hear Portuguese is fastest, but since I did crochet before I learnt to knit, continental was easiest for me to learn. That's still faster than English style though, so if you want to up your speed, maybe look into different knitting styles Wink

Good luck with your scarf!

Wow, pottermouth...you sure outdid yourself. What a beautiful intricate embroidery! And not even on true weave aida fabric! Evenweave, it looks, but not a true cross stitch blend. I rocked you!
