1  The Ron Weasley Afghan in CHALLENGE 118 ENTRIES by FiberAlchemist on: April 12, 2017 04:10:48 PM
Two summers ago Mistress Jennie hosted the One Awesome Harry Potter Thing Swap and I was lucky enough to be paired with the delightful Abbeeroad.  Abbee's "wish list item" was an afghan like Ron has in the Harry Potter movies.

Like this one...

After some hunting online I came across a tutorial on Revelry by Penguineer's Purls and used her chart as a guideline to make my own.  This project is made of 7 inch knitted squares, 80 of them, then all sewn together to create a massive 70" by 56" afghan.  If you are ever in need of a stash busting project, look no further.

Here is my version...

And at another angle...

Friday I received my package from Muahahahaha!

First there is a hand painted copy of There and Back Again by Bilbo; and inside is a length of Elven rope.

There is also a hand painted picture frame with Thorin's quote "If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world."

She also included a couple of extras.  A glow sword and a Lego Gimli!

Thank you so much Muahahahaha for a lovely package!

Everyone's packages have been really great; and the one Kwality570 sent is no exception...

First she sent a handpainted on metal magnet of one of my favorite Tina Belcher quotes, "I'm no hero.  I put my bra on one boob at a time like everybody else."

Then there was this awesome tote bag featuring the band Drive Shaft, from LOST.

And lastly there is an amazing wood burned sign from Lord of the Rings.

Thank you so much Kwality for being such a thoughtful and generous partner!  Everything is amazing!

4  Ravenclaw Tower in Craftalongs by FiberAlchemist on: January 17, 2017 06:27:37 PM
Welcome to Ravenclaw Tower!

Welcome back everyone for another term at Hogwarts!  As we head into spring time (at least in the northern hemisphere) we will be looking at different ways to bring some warmth into our bones and shake off the winter blues.  Spring is traditionally looked at as a time of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Festivals are held all over the globe, from Canada to Turkey, from Nepal to Australia, to celebrate the coming of spring.

Luna is alarmed by the size of her "Patronus"

Spring Cleaning - Cleaning out boxes from the garage and donating old clothing from the back of the closet can feel quite freeing.

Refresh your walls with a fresh new color! - Try rearranging your furniture, add a new rug or hang some new artwork!

Grow Some Plants - And while your at it take some time to smell the roses.

Learn Something New - Sign up for that ceramics class you've been thinking about.  Take a trip down the stack at your local library and look for a topic that peaks your interest.  Or you could even take time to volunteer to teach someone else a skill.

To make these cookies mocha flavored take your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (I use the one on the back of the bag) and add 4 TBSP of coffee liquor, 3TBSP instant coffee crystals and 1TBSP finely ground coffee beans.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Display Risers for Funko Pops
Brief Description: Over the past few years I have amassed a collection of Funko Pops (a Muggle toy) and was in need of a way to better display them.  I needed to utilize both a firm hand (to cut the foam core) and precise calculations (to make sure everything fit together) to complete this project.  I used this site as a guide and adapted the risers to fit in the space I had.  I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Beer Brownies
Brief Description: Last weekend while the husband and I were pursing the local big bog liquor store I came across a bottle of Elysian Punkuccino beer; and this beer chose me.  It needed to be made into something and that something was beer brownies!  I used this recipe from desserts for two; who's cast iron skillet brownies I make at least twice a month.  The punkuccino was perfect in this recipe.  You get hints of mocha and cinnamon with deep dark chocolate.  Delish!
