I like your additons, but the Spanakopita is not truly vegetarian, as stated on the recipe link. I don't mind, as I eat fish, meat, and eggs. I would probably add some chopped ham to the filling mix, but a wonderful recipe, all the same.  Grin

Your pincushion is awfully cute. I keep checking my thrift/antique stores for those girlie toppers like yours. They were very popular at one time...like in the 40's?

And neat poofy curtain. I love the color. Stay warm for the holidays!

Who said anything about Spanakopita being "truly" vegetarian?  I didn't see that in Acadian Driftwood's post...   Undecided

@WhistleFish: I used a half double crochet stitch in the back loop only for my scarf. Smiley

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

Class: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Grandma Love
Brief Description: For Arithmancy I decided to study the number four. Four is significant because it is the number of kids I have, as well as the number of grandchildren my mother has. I've had to make up for my sister's lack of interest in kids. For the assignment, I cross stitched my children and mother, and sewed this to some fabric triangles that I stitched together. (Three is my favorite number, so I squeaked that in there, too!) Then I framed it and now it's ready for wrapping.



Class: HoM/ Ravenclaw Scavenger Hunt
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Gifts on the Cheap
Brief Description: Because I hate Christmas shopping with a passion and I love to make stuff, my family knows they will receive handmade gifts from me. This saves me a ton of money on gas, the item, as well as the time it takes to battle through hoards of shoppers and traffic. So far, all I have made are few more ornaments. But I begin cookie baking on Monday! (The last two projects are made from paper clay and paper, so I can scratch paper products off the scavenger hunt list!

stillatthetop, perhaps you are thinking of vegans, who do not eat dairy or other animal products? I am a vegetarian, which means I don't eat any kind of flesh, but I do eat eggs and milk products. I bet my boyfriend would enjoy your ham addition though!

Oh my! I haven't posted anything this term, though I have been lurking. It has been crazy busy. Not just about Christmas, but life in general, some bad but mostly good. I have been crafting the while but we didn't have internet (except on my phone) for nearly a month. So, I'm about to do a huge crafty heap of goodness on you!


Class: Apparition
House: Ravenclaw
Title: Make your own Christmas Tree kits.
Link: Pinterest!  http://www.couponclippingcook.com/candy-cookie-cones/
Description:  My husband and I love this place about 45 minutes Northeast of us called Apple Hill. In the fall and Winter, all of these farms are filled with craft booths and fair-type things and food. There are so many people and so much to do that you cannot make it to the 45+ farms. In the Fall, they have pumpkin patches galore and you can pick your own apples. However, if you go in the Winter, you can cut your own Christmas tree which is what we like doing as a family.
So, in honor of that and our recent trip, I made 7 kits for families to make their own Christmas trees but completely forgot to take a group picture. Its much like creating your own gingerbread house, but easier. Each kit contains pointed sugar cones, green food coloring and white frosting (to be mixed to get your favorite shade of green), mini candy stars, mini mint chocolate kisses in various colors, non parelleis, red pull apart licorice, large and small white round pearl candies, and candy coated chocolate covered sun flower seeds. Everything is completely edible and was created so the entire family, including preschoolers like my youngest, could get in on the fun. :-D



Class: History of Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Title: Sewing machine pin cushion
Link: I saw this http://icanfindthetime.blogspot.com/2010/07/sewing-machine-pin-cushion.html but pulled the pattern out of my head.
Description: I chose to craft something to help save money in tough economic times. Ive been doing a lot of research lately on times when the United States had suffered during either depressions, economic decline or wars and learned that women have had to learn to be thrifty. There are many phrases such as a penny saved is a penny earned and make do and mend that fly to mind. They used everything they had to avoid buying new. I love to craft but sometimes it can be expensive and so Ive decided to take a leaf out of their book and be thrifty. What is the point in buying a new pin cushion when I had all of the materials to make my own? So that is what I did. Everything I used to create this pin cushion for a sewing machine I already had in my stash. That definitely helped me save money.


Class: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Title: Embroidered Needle book
Link: http://www.flickr.com/photos/8832675@N06/6518499165/in/contacts/  The original link I found for a felt one of these is no longer an etsy shop, so I searched around pinterest and found one that was similar.
Description: The spider I observed was very studious. When poked or prodded in its box, it ignored me completely and just went on creating its intricate web. I didnt realize at the time that the spider was showing me how I must act while creating this embroidered needle book for a swap partner. I had many distractions from regular life, children, internet, television, etc, and I would need to slowly make it through to the finish. I did, after a long while, and wished Id only been in a box with a finger poke as a distraction!!


Class: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Title: Hoot hoot
Link: http://www.etsy.com/listing/79046368/adopt-a-baby-owl-angora-eco-wool-felt?ref=tre-567141698-16 I believe the person who did these actually knitted them instead of what I've done; below.
Description: Ive always fancied the number 2. Besides having the standard two arms, legs, hands, feet, ears and eyes, I also have two children. If I create something for one, the other automatically wants one as well, thus the creation of two little owls. I cut these out of some wool and alpaca sweaters I got from the thrift shop and stitched them up. The stuffing, buttons, etc. were all from my stash.



Class: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Title: full length fingerless gloves
Link: Ravelry!  (I used the entirety of this pattern but made the gloves long. I started with one hook size up and then adjusted to the "correct" hook size when I got to the wrist and hand portion.)  http://www.canadianliving.com/crafts/crochet/crochet_pattern_pretty_wrist_warmers.php
Description:
Being that Europas surface is made of ice water, it would be absolutely freezing to visit. I created these full length fingerless gloves just for such an environment.



I have a few more but those will have to wait for another time. Also, i have LOVED everything I've been seeing in the thread!! I will be on much more now so will be able to comment. Have a wonderful Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) everyone!!
