Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Dragon's Heartstrings
SPEW: Case for Smiles
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Kitty Case
Project Page Link: instructions
Brief Description: In order to make this case a little bit more special (I didn't think gray would really catch a kid's eye, but I couldn't find matching orange or mauve for the other cats on the main print) I used the decorative loop-de-loop stitches on my machine.  Remind me not to do that again.  They take forever and you have to be really careful that things don't shift around too much or you'll end up with a line of cursive "r".  But it all turned out cute in the end. {Inspired by the book Millions of Cats, a favorite book from my childhood which is slightly horrifying reading as an adult.}

~*COMPLETED OWL HEADER*~
OWL Subject & Option (if available): Defense Against Dark Arts (Option 2)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dean's Quilt
Project Page Link: Made using Obsessively Stitching's First Quilt Ever tutorial
Brief Description: Snape's patronus echoes the Potter family's in that it is a deer.  This quilt is for a quasi-cousin's new baby.  There were some health concerns for the baby at the beginning so he needed something with a little extra protection, and what better to represent it than the most famous of patronuses?  My cousin and I have fallen out of touch since high school, which made choosing fabric kind of a challenge.  I had to laugh and use the deer fabric because of an old discussion we'd had where she couldn't believe that deer season wasn't as big a deal among my college-town friends as it was in her rural Pennsylvania home.  Everything else kind of fell into place around that first choice.

One last project I forgot to include in my previous post:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pink & Silver Polka Dots
Brief Description: This project combines the muggle saying of "seeing the world through rose tinted glasses" and "finding a silver lining in every cloud" reminding us to always look on the bright side of life.

For those who haven't been with us for previous years, my usual modus operandi is to disappear for most of the month and then to pop in with a bunch of crafts for dolls.  This month is no exception.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Minifee Sweater
Brief Description: Doll sweater to use up leftover sock yarn.  Always a lot of counting on the sleeves trying to get the sleeves to come out the same length.  I think it worked this time around.

A Mini Update as opposed to my usual massive project dump.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against Dark Arts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Best Cookies Ever!
Recipe: http://bit.ly/2kp7CeU
Brief Description:  I work at one of our campus libraries supervising the student workers, and always make them cookies at the beginning of the semester as a sort of welcome back gesture and to remind myself that I do really enjoy them, even if the first few weeks of classes makes you want to tear out your hair with all their last minute schedule changes. As usual, I used my favorite recipe for the base and just substitute whatever sort of goodies I have on hand for the peanut butter chips.  This time around I reduced the amount of butter and used mint chips, and I have to say they are some of the tastiest things I've ever made.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Philosopher's Stone
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Basket o' Dresses
Brief Description: I had time for a massive sewing session last weekend, and decided to make a giant batch of doll dresses.  I usually just make them in ones and twosies, so this was a much bigger undertaking than usual, but I did kind of enjoy the assembly line process. (There are two yellow dresses there that were used for another prompt, but even taking those out of the equation it was still an 8 hour undertaking)

~*OWL PROPOSAL HEADER*~
OWL Subject: Defense Against Dark Arts (Option 2)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dean's Quilt
Brief Description: Snape's patronus echoes the Potter family's in that it is a deer.  I'm making a baby quilt for a distant relative, and the fabric that "sparked" all the others for this quilt features this animal.  The quilt is made for a baby who we already know will have health problems when he's born, so a little extra patronus protection in the quilt would not be amiss.
