Quickly dropping by with some assigments before the term is over!
Since some of you asked, here's the book I MADE! (yeah! I made a book!!!)
https://fundo.ca/fr/projects/242 --It's still in the crowdfunding state, we're almost there, at 95%!!! so you can buy one if you like. It's in French (which was the point, there's NO French children book about homebirth)
http://www.viewdocsonline.com/document/dz8qyj and here's an exerpt (spelling?) of it, so you can see the beggining so more image. I did the illustration AND the conception. I'm pretty proud of myself, I should say!
So there you go, the reason why I've been absent and neglecting.... Hope the mods do not see that as fishing... else tell me and I'll remove this Smiley

Class: Apparition
House: Griffindors!
Name: Grandmas' watercolors
Desc: You might remember we moved away from our family, and we really, really long to move back there... I went with the kids on Mother's day and those paintings (one for my mom and one for in MIL) represents well our desire to be there as often as we can! (I should say it's a 4h drive) Both says "Best Moms gets promoted to Grandmas/Mamie".

Name: Salute the Sun!!
Desc: My whole day is better off started with a nice Sun Salutation. I made myself this little reminder that now decorate the wall of my kitchen!

Desc: My boy will turn ONE next month. I know, so fast!!! And like I do for little ones that I love, I made him his very own crown, but I had to wait for the inspiration to strike... What to put on it??? While gazzing into the sky I saw squirrels and accorns and had this "ahAH!" moment. At the appartement were I gave birth, there was 4 giant old oaks in the yard so it was always full of accorn. And on the same day -true! not even making up a story there!- I saw a onesie on pinterest with an accorn on it saying "I will be mighty!" Well, this big guys surely will!

Challenge: DA- Patronus
Spew: Yay!!!
House: still a Lion
Name: Cuddle Doll
Desc: The House of Birth (Huh English term, it's Maison des Naissances in French) where I had my first 2 kids holds an annual brunch on mother's day to raise a little bit of funds for its commitee, so I gave away one of my dolls for them to giveaway. The mother that won it was very happy and grateful (and her belly was HUGE! Cheesy ) Thanks for putting up this challenge. It was worth the 4h drive!

phew. That's it for now. I don't beleive I'll be able to count Quidditch this weekend, but maybe this week.

Erin, that hoopla is lots of fun! I love the color you used
Noodle-bug and Jellybean, those hats are SO cute!

I'm having quite a weird spring, actually. Still not looking like spring outdoor, more like December. I spent the day at the hospital yesterday for the first time in my life (didn't even go to give birth!) I passed a kidney stones. I hurts. so. much. But now it's gone, and I'm kind of trying to rest (yeah, the kids are listening telly!) so to celebrate lets turn in some assignments!!

Brief Description: Last year, I started working on some cute colored yarn (for what was left of the felted MLP I did) but didn't know what to do with it so I offered the result to a lovely new friend here, the first real friend since we moved!

Brief Description:  My daughter lost a baby tooth! Can you believe it? She's growing up so, so fast! For the tooth fairy to keep track of lost tooth I made a chart using pen and watercolor (technique 1), and shown it on my blog. Several mamas requested one for themselves their children, so I took a picture and edited it (technique 2) so it could be printed:

Project Picture:

Since it's a all in one post:

NEWT Subject: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: e-Book of Shadows (The little guide of the Agnostic Pagan Family) Illustrations
Brief Description: It's a huge project I've been willing to make for a long, long time. I want to write a little book for each seasons and each sabbath, about how we celebrate the year and how we heal ourselves naturally. In French...because there's nothing much in french for those living in our Qubecer weather. I want to illustrate it with watercolor, so that's the NEWT part for you!
I choose Astronomy as a subject for this since The Wheel of the Year is based on the Equinoxes, Solstices and medianes (Samhain, Imbolc, Betaine and Lughnasad) and those are the 9 (I'm adding the Wheel too) I want to make absolutely.  I guess I'll start with Beltaine since it's the one comming up.

few. So there you have it!
I'm going to update my pitch now. *fly to the pitch in shame*

Can't wait to have my our finger puppets pottermouth!!! They are awesome!!

I'm so late into the craftalong I can't comment on everyone... but there's so many great projects.

ETA: You can head to the Quidditch Pitch to see the current score!

You all started so strong!!! I must say the flying homework are stunning!!!! I will make one of the hyppogriph! And I'm a little late, but the theo's doll new suit is very lovely.

Badwulf, The lego quilt is so great! I know a little boy that would be over the moon to have it!
Antbee, that cap is to die for!! and the little model too!
Erin, the woodgrain of the bats are perfect!
Techni, I love how you put snow on the roses. Tattoo watercolor style is hard and you seems to master it! I LOVE it!
Moonflame... fabulus gloves! the color is so great.

Sorry not to comment on everyone....But now I'm up to date, at least!! Hi new students!!!

And here is my completed NEWT:
NEWT Subject: Transfiguration
House: Gryffindor (Quidditch score!)
Project Name: Winter coat, and mittens
Brief Description: I made a winter coat for my daughter using a wool blanket someone gave me some years ago, because it was red, and apparently, all red things are mine.
I also used a piece of fur I bought for a snow knight costume. I used a coat we found as the lining, so I save a huge amount of time in term of sewing and planning since I only made an outer shell with the blanket. With the remainings (both of fabric and newt-time) I made myself a pair of mittens! the inside of those are old sweater, so very comfy!
the label on the blanket said: Regent Fabric- Mothproofed- 1952 Cheesy
Project Picture:

and the mittens:


I have a question about last semester's giveaway. Do we have to draw the winners ourselves of you'll do it, Mistress Jennie?

Quidditch Pitch!!

image from google

For this semester I've changed the concept a bit. I'll invite you to recycle, reuse, repurpose, rearrange, and be resourceful!

The points you make will be for your house. The points you take away you must choose one of the other 3 Houses.

You can score a goal (10 pts) by crafting with a thrifted object.
Ex : my beloved kids pants from sweater sleeves. A pair of yoga pants from a maternity pants. Transform a birdhouse from a yard sale.
You can also score a goal by rearranging a room to make it more functional.
By opting to by to buy used instead of new (a couch, a coat!) and put your personal touch to it.

You can hit with a bludger (take away 10 pits from another House) by using your stash.
Use all that yarn your great aunt gave you. And that fabric you bought *cough* 4 years ago.
By re-purposing a piece of furniture.
By doing something with all those toilet paper rolls.

For this semester, you'll only be able to catch a snitch once (150pts), with a Quidditch related project.  

Gryffindor: -90
Hufflepuff: -30
Ravenclaw: -50
Slytherin: -70

blupaisan hits gryffindor
AD hits S
sammylouise hits R
Erin scores for S
Midskiffjoy scores for G
Antbee hits someone but we don't know who!
AD goal for H and hits G
samash90 hits 3 houses
Inselaeffchen hits G
Moonflame hits the 3 houses
Moonflame hits S
coulsini hits G
Erin hits G and H
Moonflame hits Gryff twice and once each other houses
Maman Tattoo hits the 3 other houses once
Gaudiknight hits S
Moonflame hits S and G and scores for H
Calliemae hits G and H
Moonflame hits The snakes
Gaudiknight scores for the Puffs

Any course, owls and newts and house unity are elligible for quidditch points. You can also submit stand-alone Quidditch project. However, Quidditch points does not count as House points.

Flying: In order to better your flying aptitude this semester, you must study a creature that is able to fly on its own, magical or not. See how elegantly a pegasus take its flight, how sturdy is the hippogriff. Look at a bird's or a pixie's wings and create something that depict a flying creature or wings.

take great care of yourself!! we will wait no problem Smiley
Meanwhile, people can still play Quidditch! I'll try updating the pitch today. I love how people participate!

I found this:

So I actually didn't need to do an inner linnig!!! Talk about time saving!
So now I'm almost done. I'm doing a bit of hand-stitching and I'll be finished.
I also made myself a pair of mittens with the red, and I'm making a mason jar isolation for Papa's morning coffee.
After that I'll still have a bit of remnant but not much to do anything.
This blanket will be Transfigured indeed, but in not enough time for a NEWT...I might embrodery the coat??

Desc: I was going to make a regular woolen jumper (? it's salopette in French) but next to me was scraps of the red wool since I cut Mariann's coat (I sewn the outer shell!) so the thing was calling for heart knee-pads.
