Love the market tote, Jennie and what an awesome looking space, gaudiknight! I know when it comes to renovations, even the smallest project is a lot of work!

I have a couple projects to turn in:

Class: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: TM Patch Journal Cover
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for kbrison in the Asheville Swap, this little project is added to bit by bit (square by square) over time to create the finished piece.
Project Picture:

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Glass Blown Vase
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I took a glass blowing class recently with my friend at Morris County School of Glass (https://www.mcsog.com/). It was super fun and challenging to work with this new-to-me material. The vase itself was made by swinging the blown glass to elongate the stem - very cool!
Project Picture:

Class: Divination
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Glass Paperweight
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: The second piece from my glass class "playing with fire." Pretty appropriate for Divination this term! This piece is not actually blown, the colored glass is stuck to the molten glass and melted to incorporate, then the design is created by pulling and twisting the glass with large metal tweezers. Every air bubble is a place where I "poked" the glass with the tweezers. A second coating of clear glass encloses the color. You actually use wooden tools to shape the glass - they are stored in water and dunked frequently to keep them from catching fire.
Project Picture:

Class: History of Magic
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Sister T-shirts
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for my nieces, Cricut projects definitely come easy to me these days. I can squeeze it in during nap time, which is about the only free time I have anymore.

Two more excellent packages!! I love that shawl pin and the hexagon bag!

To add more awesomeness to the gallery - I received from kbrison yesterday!

Here's a group shot:

She made me TWO mug rugs - Star Wars and Harry Potter (my favorite fandoms)! My son already claimed the HP one, he does love the glow in the dark star fabric, Kathy!



She also sent me two treats from "The Nut House":

Hazelnut coffee and spicy nuts?? Could this be any more perfect?

Actually, it can! All that yarn she sent me was for this:

My own little loom!! I can't wait to play with it!

And, I realized I never posted the pic of the postcards Kathy sent me:

Thank you so much, Kathy! A perfect package!!

Gaudiknight - I totally Kon-Marie-ed my fabric scraps recently:

The whole craft room got a serious purging, but this is the best evidence I have, lol.

I have been contemplating my list. So far, I only have 2 things on it...will keep thinking!

7  Iron Chef! in Craftalongs by Abbeeroad on: February 04, 2019 11:07:17 AM
The Secret Ingredient for February is...


From 10 Ways to Cook and Bake with Coconut: Coconut meat is rich in iron and a good source of potassium. It's high in saturated fat, but natural coconut oil enhances your immune system, improves digestion, helps the body absorb minerals, and improves your overall cholesterol ratio. The thin brown skin is edible and high in fiber. Coconut juice is just about the best source of electrolytes around--the balance is identical to what's in our bloodstream. Fresh coconut gives haunting, rich depth to Southeast Asian, Indian, and Jamaican curries and stews and adds texture and nutty sweetness to fruit salads, cakes, and cookies.

Love your drawings for your daughters, jenleahlynn! Triplet 16 year olds!?! And here I am thinking twins are hard. Good luck mama.

I have a quick project to turn in...

Class: Apparition
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Embroidered Pendant
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: This was a nice, little meditative craft. Made for the Little Good Things Swap, I embroidered some flowers on a small scale and glued it into a pendant. It was really fun to make and it was SO nice to have a little quiet time and space to do some crafting.

Hogwarts will once again host "Iron Chef Hogwarts" this semester! Each month a new secret ingredient will be revealed. All Hogwarts students who prepare a dish containing the secret ingredient will earn the secret ingredient badge displayed below and receive points for your house!

Iron Chef Hogwarts challenges now earn House Points ON THEIR OWN!  That's right. You no longer have to combine them with another prompt in order to earn points. Just submit them as a normal class or challenge, making sure to include the challenge food in the header. Here's an example:

Challenge: Iron Chef - Lentils
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Lentil Salad
Brief Description: I made this fantastic lentil salad to take to a bonfire on the beach...

*Thanks to Mistress Jennie for providing this sparkling example!

NOTE: All secret ingredients are chosen at random from a list of ingredients that have been actual Iron Chef secret ingredients on the US muggle television show. That being said, if you are allergic to any ingredient posted, you may still enter and earn your badge IF you choose a recipe that is traditionally made with the secret ingredient but substitute that single ingredient with an allergy-safe version. Please call out any substitutions in your post. Only substitutions based on allergy or other health-related dietary restrictions will be accepted. Thank you for your cooperation!
