My camera is not working so I had to try and take these pictures with my macbook.  So, they are not the best pictures but it will give you an idea of what the projects look like.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Charms
SPEW:n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cat Toy
In the spirit of lively and fun charm classes I crafted a stuffed egg shaped ball for my cat.  I let them sit in catnip for a few days and then pull it out for kitty to play with.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Weighted Blanket
Making a weighted blanket for a cousin has long been on my to do list.  It took me a long time to get around to it because I had to hunt down a place to buy the plastic pellets online.  I ended up going with Ebay.  I was also a little intimidated by it, but it turned out well.  I had to drape it on a pillow to fit it on my mac screen for a picture. In real life it lays flat and is not all bunched up and strange looking.

A couple of years ago I tried to learn to crochet.  It did not work out.  I recently decided to give it another try.  My first project was a couple of lopsided washcloths.  They gave me a better feel for crocheting and their wonkiness has their own charm Wink



Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Transfiguration
SPEW: Primary Children's Hospital
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name:  I created a couple soft like rabbit fur, flannel blankets for a children's hospital.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
SPEW: na
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Humpback Chub Watercolor
Project Page Link :  http://www.coloradoriverrecovery.org/general-information/the-fish/humpback-chub.html

I believe that we should be aware of our surroundings and treat all life with consideration.  I like to go fishing from time to time and came across an endangered fish that I thought would be an interesting art subject.  I read about and learned about the Humpback Chub.  It has a very small habitat, in only a section of 4 rivers.  It has been on the endangered list since 1973.  I used the painting on the above website for the recreation of my picture.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Recovered Desk Chair
Brief Description: While studying divination I came across this wonderful geometric fabric-perfect for recovering my daughters desk chair.  We are working on repainting her room.  It was a lovely pink and purple perfect for the little girl she was when I painted it 10 years ago.  But, now she is a teen.  Time does fly.  So we have been talking about a grey, white and black scheme that can be accented with colors that are easily changed out when the mood strikes her.
