I also received from the super talented sheepBlue. Feast your eyes on these lovelies!!!

The engraving on the teaspoon says "Ron's emotional range". Hahaha! And the fancy butterbeer cap is lovely.

Merlin's beard, that is one epic ornament!!!!

Oh my, I am a huge fan of this guy. He is creepy cool in the most spectacular of ways.  He has stolen my heart! sheepBlue has posted more photos HERE and you should go check 'em out. Thank you, thank you! I am lucky to have these beauties on my tree!

And for a private swap, long time Craftster Crush of mine, tapestrymlp, sent me a sweet niffler and a demiguise hoop that I love love love! You need to check those out too! I'm so lucky to have both of these hanging on the tree, and glad that my daughter has already gone home so there's no chance of her snatching them for herself. I thank you!

Those are awesome ornaments! I also received two riddikulus-ly amazing ornaments from the great tapestrymlp, a super cute niffler (that face is simply the best!) and a beautiful demiguise hoop:

They are wonderful additions to the HP tree. Thank you for the treasures, tapestry!  Kiss

13  Miniature Autumn Harvest Buffet w Flower Tute in Completed Projects by pottermouth on: November 22, 2017 04:02:57 PM
I find that miniatures can either take me a tiny amount of time or a ridiculous amount of time, but nothing really in between. This particular project fit into the former category, mostly due to having a pre-made hutch that only required staining. The only things I made were the polymer clay squash, the paper banner, a cornucopia, and some crepe paper flowers.

The drawers actually open. That's exciting.

I found a tutorial for weaving a miniature cornucopia and even though it came out wonky, it worked fine. The flowers are much simpler to make. All you need is thin green wire, crepe paper in green and another color, and glue. Cut a long, thin strip from the flower color crepe paper, then make small snips along one long edge. Dip the end of the wire in glue and wrap the crepe paper around and around, adding glue as needed.

Cut a small circle from the green crepe paper and poke a hole in the center. Add a bit of glue to underside of flower and slide the circle up the wire to cover the glue. Roll it around.

Using a toothpick or your fingers, spread out the petals of the flower. Ta-da!

14  Chaircat Fowl in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: November 22, 2017 03:04:04 PM
I presented Chaircat Mao with her new holiday hat this afternoon. She was cool with it at first but then decided it was not for her.

"Roasted turkey hat. I dig it. Turkey is delicious."

"Wait, did you say this is imitation turkey?"

"Don't speak to me."

Hope your holiday is a happy one!

15  Make Your Own Pygmy Puff in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: November 01, 2017 06:08:32 AM
Here is a really quick way to make yourself oodles and oodles of those cute pluffy puffskeins.

First, gather your materials:

Faux Fur in any color
Felt to match, wool is best
2 small safety eyes or buttons
2 black seed beads for nose
Polyfil or some type of stuffing
Embroidery thread
About an hour

Cut 5 body pieces from fur fabric and all head pieces from felt. Reverse one Side Head piece so you have a left and right side. Sew body together by placing two sections right sides together and sew from point to point. Repeat with all 5 sections, remembering to leave a gap in the last section so you can turn your little guy right side out. Stuff the puff and sew opening closed.

To make the face, match the dots on one Side Head piece and the Top Head piece. Sew along edge. Sew second Side Head piece in the same way. Then match the bottom edges of Side Head pieces and sew together. You will have a roundish head that is open on the back. Attach eyes. Sew nose in any fashion. I sewed on two black seed beads side-by-side, then gave the puff a tiny smile. To make ears, fold in the bottom edges of the ear piece and sew to head. You could make feet too. Simple cut out four ear shapes (make them larger though!), sew together, stuff slightly, then attach to body. Give it toes if you wish.

Attach head to body and POOF! You have yourself a Pygmy Puff.

16  Frankenstein's Mao in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: October 19, 2017 09:16:36 AM
A year ago I began crocheting silly hats for Chaircat Mao. Her very first hat was a pumpkin, and she was not at all pleased with it. And now wearing hats is practically boring for her, especially after she's eaten a handful of treats and is ready for a nap.

Chair's very first hat:

Did you know there are 13 days until Hallowe'en?

17  Shirley Dead Cake in Dessert by pottermouth on: October 15, 2017 03:48:04 PM
One of the things my kids and I look forward to each October is the airing of Food Network's Halloween Wars. They are even allowed to stay up past their bedtime so we can watch it together. So this afternoon they had the bright idea to make a Halloween cake in the spirit of the show.

They did allow me to sculpt the rice cereal treat skull, so I was happy. Other than that, it was all their doing! Twin 1 has the neatest handwriting in the entire family and piped "Shirley Dead 1704-?" on the headstone.  Cheesy The skeleton is rice cereal treat, the cake is chocolate with chocolate frosting, the dirt is crumbled Oreos, and they dyed coconut to resemble grass.

The mess they made was a horror show all by itself. Happy October!

18  Virus Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: October 04, 2017 08:49:51 PM
The fantabulous Mistress Jennie set up a Virus Shawl Crochet Along that was so tempting I had to play along. The pattern is an easy repeat and goes quickly. I had Lion Brand Mandala yarn in "Genie" in the stash, so I figure why not? The results were surprisingly nice.

If you are in need of a quick gift, look no further!

Done! Used one ball of Lion Brand Mandala in Genie (not Spirit as stated earlier) and size E 3.5 hook, approximately 56" from widest points.

It was a super fast project. Once you have the repeat down it goes pretty quickly. Thanks, Jennie!
