Time for the traditional end-of-term project dump!  This might take a while...

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Back-To-School Dress for Pukifee
Brief Description: This fabric is super boring on the bolt, but sew it up into a tiny little dress and it is adorable.


Autumn in the Air by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Sock Yarn Hat
Brief Description: Two coworkers had babies withing a week of each other (both named Jack, strangely) so my lunch breaks have turned into a hat knitting marathon.  One down!



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Halloween Dress
Brief Description: Not exactly red, but it does have a belt... sash... thing.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: DADA
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Blue Posies Dress for Pukifee
Brief Description: I always find the blue & white color combo very soothing.


240 Calico by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - June
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Zany Pukifee Dress
Brief Description: The fabric for this dress transformed from a strip of quilt binding into a rather wild little dress.  



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - July
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spring Dress for Lati Green
Brief Description: Work-In-Progress = Done!


Purple Posies by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - August
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Littlefee Independence Day Dress
Brief Description: Hope there's enough red in here to count for that part of the prompt.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Detention - September
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Black & Gold Littlefee Dress
Brief Description: This dress had been in the planning stages forever.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Morocco
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Lati Green Purple Plaid Dress
Brief Description: Going for the repetitive design portion of the prompt...



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: PukiPuki Dress
Brief Description: I have been wanting to sew for this doll since she joined me 6 years ago, but her teeny tiny size was way to intimidating.  But I finally did it!


231 I Did It! by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Fireworks Dress
Brief Description: Well, there are many knots tying off the handsewing in this dress, but really it transforms what was originally a quilt binding into a doll dress.  The width was just wide enough to get a skirt out of it.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Batik Bulls Eye Dress
Brief Description: Like the bubbles rising in your butterbeer...



Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Unity
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pukifee Halloween Stripe Dress
Brief Description: Like last year, this year's batch of halloween dresses contains colors from every Hogwarts house - orangey gold for Gryffindor, black for Hufflepuff, green for Slytherin, and if you squint just right you can pretend the purple is a bit bluish for Ravenclaw.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: August Posies Dress
Brief Description: I love crafting with vintage fabric.  I've been able to find a lot of it in the stashes of older relatives, but that source is slowly dwindling.  So that makes what scraps I have even more precious.


234 Sunshine on a Cloudy Day by Trillian, on Flickr

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Transfiguration
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Littlefee Autumn Dress
Brief Description: Button!



Well, there you have it!  An entire semester's worth of work crammed into one post.  Sorry!

With the weather turning cold in the Northern Hemisphere, most in the wizarding world prefer to hang up their brooms for the season.  Since you'll be spending more time indoors, please craft something to increase your enjoyment of hearth & home.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Tom Riddle's Diary
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Remembrall
Brief Description: I went a bit rogue for this prompt, going with Diary as a synonym for agenda book rather than as a journal, but the end result is much the same - helping you remember things (either before or after the fact).  I've been trying out the Happy Planner this summer.  I like that it lets me divide my day up into times, a work to-do list, and personal to-do list (plus the stickers are kind of fun).  But the best part is that you can add extra pages so you don't have to carry around an entirely separate notebook for project planning, brainstorming, etc.  I created a handful of dividers for the back of my planner (basically just traced around some existing dividers onto double sided card stock, used tape to try to reinforce the flag portion, and then cut trimmed again) and cut down a pack of graph paper to size.  Not exactly rocket science but rather time consuming when your paper trimmer will only accommodate two sheets at a time.  I already have a section set aside for HPC stuff, so we'll see how this goes.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: School Spirit Dress
Brief Description: On the bolt, this fabric is super loud and busy.  On the doll, well, it's still loud but somehow it works



Class/Challenge/House Pride: CoMC
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Happy Dots Dress
Brief Description: It may be hard to see in this picture, but the dots are all outlined in metallic gold.  Hopefully not too subtle to attract a niffler.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Picnic Plaid Dress
Brief Description: Not intentionally inspired by fire - but when I started sewing this dress I didn't realize the fabric was a poly.  So my iron was set too high and part of the fabric started turning from a solid to a liquid. 



Class/Challenge/House Pride: SoAR
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Straight and Arrow Dress
Brief Description: I had some leftover quilt binding that I needed to find a project for, something that would maximize the amount of pattern visible on the 3 inch wide scrap.  It was just wide enough for a skirt and bodice and required some very careful cutting to get the arrow placement just right.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: July Headmistress' Challenge - Harry Potter
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Baby Blanket for Irene
Project Page Link (if available): Leafy Baby Blanket
Brief Description: An over-the-top gift for a college friend's new baby who was born on Thursday.  The most over-the-top part is the shipping from the US to the UK (which is why she got a knitted blanket and not my usual quilt gift).  I  had to speed-knit this thing and got it done in just under three weeks.  Whew!

Super excited about Quidditch starting back up!  Also really loving the hexie kindle cozy.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Muggle Worthy Excuses Office
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cardigan
Project Page Link: Test Knit of this pattern
Brief Description: I started this project with the intention of turning it in for the June Headmistress' Challenge.  But instead of finishing it in the last week of June I cast off in the first week of July. Tongue

Finally popping in after being absent since the beginning of the semester.  It's actually been a very productive time as far as crafting goes, but now I just have to figure out if I managed to complete any assignments with the things I've been making.  But I'm going to try to pay more attention going forward.  I know I've missed a ton of Floo Powder prompts, but hopefully not much else.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: House Pride
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Huffleplaid
Brief Description:  There are a lot of Hufflepuff colors going on here.  If I recall correctly the fabric was supposed to be for Halloween, but I think it will work well beyond the holiday.

Sliding in under the wire for the traditional end of the semester project dump!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Apparition
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: JerryBerry to Pukifee Dresses
Brief Description: I had a couple leftover long doll dresses in a size I no longer use, but was able to shorten the skirts to fit my tiny girls.  Only managed to get a picture of one, though...



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Purple Flowers Dress
Brief Description: This dress incorporated the triangular number three because the print is made up of three different types of flower shapes.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: CoMC
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Pretty Boxes
Brief Description: I needed something to fill the visual gap between my dresser and nightstand in order to hide an outlet and cords.  Having just moved house and lined a million shelves with contact paper, I had a lot of scraps that I didn't want to throw out, but also wasn't sure how to use.  After staring at the mismatched shoe boxes I use to store my doll clothes, an idea was born.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Ugly Sock #2
Brief Description: And then there were two...  It always takes me forever to finish a pair of socks, mostly because I knit in stolen moments on the go.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Flyings
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Realfee Knit Dress
Brief Description: The most prominent color in this variegated yarn was the bright yellow (at least when it was in the ball - it looks a little up) the same color as a broom blossom.



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Hufflepuff's Cup
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Ritz Rolo Combo
Brief Description: Trillian's go-to, no effort pot-luck dish (seriously it only just clocks in at 30min).  I make these a lot, but I usually don't care enough about mid-week pot-lucks to put in a ton of effort and these are a crowd pleaser.  Also the picture just looks like a cracker, but trust me there's chocolate/caramel goodness in there.
Step one - unwrap a bag full of rolos. 
Step 2 - place a bunch of ritz crackers face down on a baking sheet with a lip around the edge (very important or everything can go sliding off when you put it in the oven). 
Step 3 - put a rolo on each cracker and stick the sheet in a warm oven.  I went about 250 degrees for however long it takes for things to get melty (very scientific). 
Step 4 - remove from oven and smash the rolos with a second ritz cracker.  If you have to push to get the rolo to flatten, you may want to give it more time to melt in the oven.   



Class/Challenge/House Pride: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Carol's Cake
Brief Description: A family friend was turning 50 this year and somehow I got volunteered to bake the cake.  Carol insists on having the exact same cake every year made with a recipe from her mother.  I'd never made a cake from scratch before, and hopefully never have to again. 

Peppermint Cake

2 c. cake flour
2 c. sugar
1/2 c. crisco, or butter, or margarine
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp soda
3 sq melted chocolate
3/4 c. milk

Blend thoroughly by hand or with mixer, medium speed, for 2 minutes
Stir in 1/2 tsp baking powder
Add 1/2 c. milk, and 3 eggs, and 1/4 tsp peppermint extract

Blend by hand or mixer another 2 minutes.
Pour into 2 nine inch layer pans, greased & lined w. wax paper.

Bake 350 for 35-40 min.

Chocolate Icing:
I usually double the recipe.
No pasta this year because of Carol's diverticulitis.

2 tbs butter or crisco
2 sq melted chocolate
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 c. sifted confectioners sugar
1/4 c. milk

Blend butter, chocolate, salt, & add vanilla
Add sugar and milk alternatively. Beat until creamy.

And the hideous results - At least it tasted good.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: SoAR
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Realfee Cherry Dress
Brief Description: My Great-grandmother and my grandfather always made the best jelly.  That particular talent has passed me by but I can make doll dresses out of fabric scraps I found in their jelly-making supply cupboard for decorating the jars when we were cleaning out the grandparents' house.
