So tempted to send Splash on another trip.



We have a festival of the dead themed party booked in November, Christmas in Spain, a lovely afternoon tea with friends booked in January - could make for an interesting scrapbook  Huh

So many fantastic twinchies, Rudloph is so adorable.

I received both of my sets today, which means an ultra happy post day, but only one day of happiness! But so much goodness to share with you.

First up, from craftylittlemonkey, two for my sewing theme - love them both, but that pin detail is amazing - and two for my HP theme - that snitch!





And from Thimbles71, all HP theme - the four houses, love them all, but Hufflepuff is my house, so especially love that badger!





Thank you both, and bec99, for a fantastic swap.

Brief Description: At the start of each term I set up my new journal pages in my crafting journal. I try to make them a different set of patterns each term, but I am starting to run out of layouts now! Pinch of Floo and Iron Chef are there, but they just get boxes to start with, as I don't know in advance what the prompts are going to be, so I add them in over the term.

I have made edelc wait for so long for me to open her parcel, but I was determined to send hers before I got to enjoy mine!  Grin

And it was worth the wait and the huge amount of willpower it took.

First up some beautiful Hufflepuff earrings - I am already wearing them  Smiley



Next, a lovely snitch pouch, with a gorgeous zip charm





And least, but most certainly not least - this is so amazing - a Hufflepuff wall hanging, with the most stunning painted badger. At the moment it is in a temporary home hanging from my craft storage shelves, but this needs its own special place.



And as a little extra, some of edelc's snitch fabric - need to find something lovely to make with it.



Thank you for a fantastic swap and I am sorry I made you wait  Kiss

I have been busy crafting and cooking lots and have been catching up, but have just not had the time to sit down and match crafts and prompts up Cheesy So this is the start of rather a large project dump!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #1. Sweetwater All-Stars
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Chocolate cornflake cakes
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I was taught this recipe when I was about 8 or 9 and have been making it ever since. It is an easy recipe to remember and it uses just 5 ingredients.

4oz butter
4oz icing sugar
4tbsp cocoa powder
4tbsp golden syrup
4oz cornflakes

Melt first four ingredients over a low heat and stir until combined. Mix in cornflakes until they are all coated in the chocolate mix. Spoon into cupcake cases or press into a tin and cut into squares when set.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #2. Patonga Proudsticks
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Mixed cupcakes
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I feel that having tea and cake is a very British thing to do and what better than some cute little cupcakes.

Basic sponge recipe

Cream 4oz butter and 4oz caster sugar until creamed, slowly mix in two beaten eggs and finally mix in 4oz self raising flour until just mixed. If mix is a little stiff, add in a tbsp of milk to soften. Add any other ingredients as wanted - glace cherries, chocolate chips, raisins, etc. If you want chocolate cupcakes, remove a tbsp of flour and add in a tbsp of cocoa powder instead. I added chocolate chips to half the mix.

Spoon into cupcake cases and bake at 180C for about 20 mins or until golden.

When cold ice with a little icing and sprinkles.

SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Crochet Pocket Letter
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This was made for a senders choice pocket letter swap, but when I noticed my partner wanted to learn to crochet and that I have recently learnt and increased my level of crochet skill, I chose to share a successful technique that worked for me. The front had examples of each stitch and the back had the technique. In the pockets I tucked some wool lengths, crochet hook and needle, etc.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #5. Barnton Quidditch
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Small flip book
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: I have taken part in a couple of flip book swaps, which are not much bigger in size than an ATC, but have flip pages that open out, there is usually at least 3 pages that open. You also add in some small gifts, similar to the pockets in a pocket letter. This one was a senders choice theme - I didn't intend it to have such a Christmassy theme Cheesy

Filling in my questionnaire, can't miss out on these lovely little squares.

Something to make you smile though - I was pinning something earlier and one of the top three boards on the list was my felt twinchie board. This is what I saw -



That adorable little strawberry makes me smile every time I see him Cheesy

House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Recycled and Green pocket letter

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #10. Falmouth Falcons
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Brownies
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: This is my go to recipe for Brownies, so I am really confident making this recipe now. It crumbles on top and is gooey in the middle. I made one plain chocolate and the other with a peanut butter swirl.

200g dark chocolate
50g butter
250g golden caster sugar
50g dark muscovado sugar (I used light, they were fine!)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp vanilla essence
75g plain flour, sifted
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven 180C. Grease and line 20cm square baking tin.
Melt together chocolate and butter.
Whisk eggs and sugar until thick and light in colour.
Stir in chocolate mix and vanilla essence.
Gently fold in flour and baking powder, until just combined.
Pour into prepared tin.
Bake in over until set, but still soft in centre - 30-40 mins.

Peanut butter version - warm 2-3 tbsps peanut butter in microwave until softened and put spoonfuls over top of brownie mix. Use a knife to swirl peanut butter in. Bake as above.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #13. Tutshill Tornados
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cheese straws two ways
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: We had arranged an afternoon tea with friends and I was responsible for the savoury. Alongside sandwiches, I put together some really quick cheese straws.

Recipe

Take a sheet of puff pastry and cut into quarters.
On one quarter spread a mix of cream cheese and sun dried tomato pesto. (I used a tbsp cheese and dsp of pesto.) - Having tried these, I would add a little grated parmesan cheese, it was a little mild on flavour for me.
On a second quarter, spread a little mustard, sprinkle with grated cheese and a pinch of cayenne.
Place another quarter of pastry on top of each and roll slightly to push two sides together.
Slice into 8 slices and place on baking tray, twisting them as you place then down.
Bake at 180C for about 25 mins or until golden.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch #16. Ilkley Quidditch Team
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Goats cheese and red onion mini quiche
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: While there are hundreds of quiche recipes out there to choose from/follow, I nearly always just wing it and add what I fancy. They usually turn out ok!  Roll Eyes

This particular recipe -

Sheet of ready rolled shortcrust pastry (I know my baking limitations, and pastry is it!)
Piece of goats cheese - chopped into cubes
1 red onion - sliced and fried in butter until caramelised and left to cool a little
Small pot of single cream
1 egg
Handful of grated cheese
Salt and pepper

I rolled the pastry a little thinner, as I was making mini quiches. Cut circles and line 12 hole tin.
Add a little onion and a few cubes of goats cheese into the bottom of each pastry circle.
Mix single cream and the egg together and season well. Stir in the grated cheese.
Fill each pastry case with the egg mix and bake for about 20 mins, or until golden on top, at 180C.

@seeuudee: I added Meet Me at the Cupcake Cafe to my hold list at our library.  When I did, the library system recommended another title....  Red's HOT Cowboy.  Yep, 'hot' was in all caps.   Kiss


Wow, that is some jump Cheesy

I had a look on Goodreads - it gets quite good reviews. I have never felt the need to dip into the genre called "western romance" but how could you resist a series called Spikes and Spurs?  Roll Eyes

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Treasure map
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: We organised a Fun at the Fair fundraising evening with our Brownies and one of the stalls was a Treasure Island Lucky Square. Brown Owl tasked me with making the map. I sketched it out first on the back of an old brown paper bag. I went over it in black and added small touches of colour. I had read of a technique to age brown paper with oil, but my husband said it may make the ink run, so suggested I use wax instead. I went over the whole thing with a white candle and then ironed it between sheets of tissue paper. It came out really well. I then could not bear the idea of drawing squares across the whole thing! So I covered it in clear plastic and drew the squares on that instead. Smiley (The winning square, chosen by a random number generator, was the group of trees just below The Black Forest wording. Cheesy)

Class/Challenge/House Pride: History of Magic
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Goldfish
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Inspired by the colours of butterbeer, I stitched up a little felt goldfish. This was also for the Fun at the Fair evening - people had to guess his name to win a goldfish in a bag. (The winning name was Flounder.)
