Class/Challenge:  Charms
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name: Special Timepiece
Brief Description:  An up-close clock and side table area for SIL, who has health issues and needs things visible in a specific room.  Angling the clock from a low level will make it easier for her to see.  The clock has a photo of her granddaughters who are growing like weeds.  This is (another!) stained wood project from downed trees, and has metal legs.  This will be SIL's Christmas gift.

Class/Challenge:  Apparition

House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  History of Magic - Creative Christmas Tree
Project Page Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=459373.30
Brief Description:  "Craft something that evokes one of your memories that you would like to share with class."   This creatively shaped and crafted tree reminds me of childhood Christmases, with family members decorating the tree, house, and every available shelf and table.  No two tastes were the same.  The displays were an eclectic mix of old and new, religious and secular.

Although the decorating isn't finished on this project, the following pics will give an idea.  The top shelf will be Santa's workshop.

I put together this awesome tool cart that is intended for mechanics' tools.  It came unassembled, and will become the property of DS2.  These carts would be fantastic for storing craft gadgets and gizmos.

Thanks Abbeeroad!  Hopefully it will bring joy to MIL. Smiley

That HP kitten is the perfect mascot for this craftalong!

Class/Challenge:  Muggle Studies
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Yellow Mechanic Tool Cart
Brief Description:
Something yellow in color -- well this cart certainly screams yellow.  A bunch of parts came in a box with "assembly required" stamped on the outside.  After locating the correct tools and reading the directions, the pieces were nutted, bolted, and screwed together to become a functional cart on wheels.  There are some extra parts that I have no idea where they go lol.  I'm proud of myself for putting it together.  This will be for DS2, but I want one.  Or six.  Imagine the craft items that could be stored and locked away from those who grab fabric-only scissors to cut things.

FiberAlchemist, thank you for the Witch Weekly honor!

Project Name:  Herbology - Mounted Peavey
House:  Ravenclaw
Brief Description:  Option 4) Create something sturdy or lasting from wood.
Project Page Link:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=458368.422
A Peavey cant-hook (aka peavey or canthook or log dog) was mounted vertically into a sizeable piece of wood salvaged from a downed tree trunk, to make a sturdy lightpost. This project has a lot of heart in it, as well as lots of scraping, sanding, staining, and painting.  It will hold a lantern on the hook and optional decorations or packages.  The peavey tool is used in logging, and DH's multigreat grandfather invented/patented it.

Class/Challenge: Arithmancy
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name: Wood Lamp
Brief Description:  "Something including grooves or ridges"  A uniquely shaped piece of wood (consisting of two main limbs and their intersecting joint groove, plus a longer thin piece) was debarked, cleaned, sanded,  stained, and made into a lamp.  The black and white lampshade is one that we had on hand.

I'm not sure if a downed tree is considered stash, but we have been using trunk, hunks, and chunks for Christmas gifts this year.  This has the Thiel College mascot burned intoit, with some paints and sealant from stash.  It is rather large and heavy.

Class/Challenge:  History of Magic
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Thiel College Mascot - Tommy Tomcat
Brief Description:
Inspired by the memory of moving DS1 into his dorm room this past August at Thiel College.  Using a hunk of tree trunk approx. 18 inches wide, and cut at a steep angle, an outline of the Tomcat mascot was burned into the wood.  Details are enhanced with a touch of paint.  The entire block was then sealed with a clear polyurethane.  This will be a gift.  I love that the sealant intensified the gold undertones in the wood rings.


Thiel College featured in a current coke commercial:

9  Hat Wreaths in Winter Holidays by JS on: October 13, 2019 07:59:14 PM
Dollar Tree has wire wreath forms that are shaped like a witch's hat.  These can also be santa/gnome hats, Christmas trees, or turned upside-down for a cornucopia or umbrella.  I made a few for gifts and for a charity raffle.  A couple still need embellished, but I like the simpler style.  To save space, these can be made reversible from fall/autumn design on one side, to a Christmas/winter design on the flip side.

That rhubarb leaf dish has amazing detail.

Class/Challenge:  ~*Floo Powder Challenges*~ Potage's Cauldron Shop Challenge
House:  Ravenclaw
Project Name:  Chicken Stew

Brief Description: A 12 quart pot was used to make 8 quarts of chicken stew.  There is no recipe per se, because we used what we had on hand.  8 Chicken breasts boiled, skinned, deboned, and roughly cut; potatoes peeled and cut into chunks; some white rice for additional substance; carrots peeled and sliced; some leftover corn; water - simmered until the potatoes and veggies were cooked through.  Of course the veggies sank to the bottom and I forgot to stir them up for the pics.  No bouillion or additional broth was added, which kept the sodium content down.  It was still flavorful.  Today saw frost on the ground so a thick soup hit the spot.
