Advanced Studies Update...

I'm crafting my brains out. I have no idea where I am in terms of numbers and will have to count when the dust settles.  Got tons more bookmarks done and am working on some more small stuff today for my upcoming craft fair.  Thankfully DH is making sure I drink water (something I often forget to do), and pinkleo & noodle-bug have set me up with an afternoon treat...


Russian Caravan Tea from noodle-bug in my favorite teapot, surrounded by my awesome Snitch Tea Cozy from pinkleo.  Pinks, it's like you're hugging my tea!  (I'm officially losing my mind right now.  Just be aware, and tell the nice men in the white coats when they come looking for me.)

Challenge: DA - Drink in the Hog's Head
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chai concentrate

November in Vermont - the perfect time to share hot drinks with friends. I made a batch of chai concentrate, which is then mixed half and half with milk and heated before serving. I usually buy the Oregon Chai concentrate, but I must say I love the results with this recipe! And I can tweak it however I want (I'm thinking a bit more ginger next time, and maple syrup!).

Ingredients:
4 1/2 cups water
1 stick cinnamon
1 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, chopped
7 whole cardamom pods
2 whole star anise pods
10 whole cloves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon orange zest
10 bags of black tea
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon vanilla



Boil the water in a medium saucepan, and add spices and teabags (not the sweeteners). Remove the pot from heat, and let it steep for 15 minutes. Strain the liquid through a fine mesh (I did it twice, the second time through cloth to take care of little bits of pepper), and stir in sugar, honey, and vanilla. Refrigerate the mixture if you're not serving it that day. To serve, mix 1 to 1 with milk and heat.

~*COMPLETED NEWT*~
NEWT Subject: Arithmancy
House:Gryffindor
Project Name: Doudoune fleur
Brief Description: I made this quilt over the summer. there's 2 silly holes in it I need to fix but it won't happen just now, so I'm showing you. For my arithmancy study, I equally devided lots of fabric and calculated the right amout of stripes to make a twin size doudoune. I quilted the batting with the fabric as I went, then used a flat sheet as the backing. My daughter loves it, which was the point, right?

Class:  Herbology
House:  Ravelclaw
Project Name: Camo Cap for grandson
Project Page Link:  JJCrochet.com (men's crochet hat)
Brief Description:  I made a winter cap for my grandson so that he was hidden from the Whomping Willow when he goes exploring the grounds.
Project Picture:

NOTE:  My dd gave me the printout of this pattern so I could see how to do the ribbing, but when I tried to go to the website to get the web link, I couldn't. 

Class:  Defense Against the Dark Arts (DADA)
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  MY winter cap
Project Page Link: JJCrochet.com (men's crochet hat)
Brief Description:  I was learning to make a cap to use for the winter for each of the family, but I get cold very easily (especially my ears).  I had never crocheted ribbing before and  MY cap had to have enough ribbing to make a DOUBLE thickness over my ears.  So while I was crocheting, I added an extra row to make the ribbing start lower on my head and added enough ribbing rows to be able to turn the cuff up double.  It was mostly a trial and error method.  I tried to err on the side of too many ribbing rows rather than not enough.  I think I succeeded.

Oh HPC, how I've missed you!  I haven't been able to get online for a while because my girlfriend and I BOUGHT A HOUSE last week (holy crap I am still freaking out about it) and we're trying to move and stuff.  But I did get to do a bit of woodcarving, so here's a challenge and an update!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: September Detention challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Basswood Penguin
Project Page Link: Right here.
Brief Description: My dad hosts a weekly woodcarving class for my mom, my girlfriend, and me, where we pick something to carve and Dad walks us through the carving process.  A while back we decided on birds.  My girlfriend wanted to make a duck decoy and I wanted to make a penguin.  We carved on our birds for a few weeks and finally got to the point where it was time to paint.  I had my penguin all painted (with gray beak and black feet) and I wasn't entirely pleased with him, but I was willing to live with it, but my girlfriend only got to the point of covering her duck with gesso before we had to leave that day.  Before we left, my girlfriend promised my dad that the next time she brought her duck back, it would be all painted and ready to seal.

Well, she kept not painting that duck.  Our poor birds sat neglected while we started carving cottonwood bark houses (or tower, in my case) since she refused to bring her unpainted duck to class but she never got around to painting it.  But finally, last Tuesday, she sat down after work and got her duck painted.  To keep her company I played around with different colors on my penguin's beak and feet (gray feet weren't any better than black, as it turns out) and ended up with orange on both, which I liked much better.  We were able to bring our birds back to class on Wednesday and finish them off!

Project Picture:



Advanced Studies Update!
I did absolutely no work on the tower last week, we closed on the house on Halloween and I had a big project at work that required all of my free time and then some.  I was able to carve on it a little on Wednesday though.



Horizontal grooves for the stones on the top two tiers, a few more windows, and the beginnings of actual stone blocks on the bottom tier.  (That last picture is upside down, I just noticed...  Undecided )

Note from the Deputy Headmistress....

Hello students!  I've just got a few minutes to take care of some HPC duties, and thought it was time for a gentle reminder.  If you are going to submit a project for one of the Class or Challenge prompts, please make sure that it actually fits that prompt.  I have noticed over the course of the last 3 Bertie Bott's Beans, that some folks are either ignoring or forgetting the actual wording of the prompt and making something that doesn't fit.  Pinkleo & I try to be VERY open minded and broadly accepting when taking submissions.  If you can justify why something should fit, we're pretty much going to accept it.  But when a prompt contains specifics, like size, shape, color, or number, you really do have to pay attention.  The current Bertie Bott's prompt requires the crafter to make 5 variations of the same object.  Making one object, even if it is super-awesome, does not fill the requirements. 

If you have questions, or are unsure if a project you have made will fill a specific prompt, please feel free to send a PM to BOTH myself & pinkleo and we'll be happy to help.  (Sending the message to both of us ensures you'll get a response sooner.  We both have busy lives, but one of us is bound to see it and respond before the other.)

Thank you!

A new Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean Mini-Challenge has been posted!  



What's this week's bean!?!?  Take the Portkey to the Deputy Headmistresses Office to find out!


P.S.  Just as a reminder, your Headmistress & I accept Bertie Bott's submissions of the "old bean" till the end of the day that I post the "new bean".  That means that you can still post the pumpkin bean till midnight in your own time zone.  Cheesy

Class: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Rosemary wreath
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=428970.0



For my alchemy assignment, I created a circle without beginning or end, much like the Ouroborus symbol. I also concentrated on its theme of rebirth - when the wreath season is over, it will have a new life as tasty food. Smiley
