Some awesome lists of things that people are committing to. I am impressed.

Audania1 you mentioned an adrenal fatigue tincture, care to tell us a bit more about it?

Yes! Actually I'm in the process on writing up a large thing about it that I'll be posting here either today for a class. My sister and I suffer from adrenal fatigue and so I've been doing loads of research on herbs that help combat it and restore the body to a natural state of balance. As it takes about 6 to 8 weeks for the tincture to come to potency, I won't be able to test it until then but I will be giving an update when I do after a few weeks of using it.

I'll be back with my post later  Wink

1. Sew an Elizabethan corset (in progress - OWL)
2. Sew an Elizabethan corded petticoat
3. crochet headband/ear warmer for work like this https://stitchinprogress.com/one-skein-crochet-cable-ear-warmer-headband-pattern/

8. make an adrenal fatigue tincture  Done in Herbology
9. make elderberry syrup (been meaning to for 3 months)
10. sew a skirt for Maire (in progress - NEWT)
11. sew myself a skirt (in progress - NEWT)
12. create some polymer clay shawl pins like these - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFMH-i_1PqY
13.  process at least 2 lbs. more of the alpaca fiber I already have (I have about 20lbs of fiber to process).
14.  Lost in Time Shawl - https://mijocrochet.se/2017/03/15/lost-in-time-shawl-sjal/

I'm sure you noticed a huge theme in there of Elizabethan wear. That is because for years I have wanted to own a booth at a Renaissance Faire but never really had the courage to step in and do it. This year, however, I am gaming up to do it. I've got a lot of product but need a costume to sell in so now is a good reminder to make it happen!

Thankfully I got Nessie in the mail just before the post office closed yesterday. It is closed today and tomorrow but even if it wasn't I wouldn't be able to go as it just dumped a ton of snow outside! Our first heavy snow and the roads are covered in ice. Crochet day, here I come!

I really love the "Love to do List" and will be all over making one tonight after work or tomorrow. There are many things I know will go on it.

Also, I've been crafting up a storm the last 4 weeks and will have some things to turn in this week end.

Nessie got to join us in our girl scout derby races this weekend. We didn't place anywhere but we did have fun. Then we got a snow day on Tuesday and school was cancelled. Fun!

Is anyone interested in a re-vamp of the OWL/NEWT prompts?? Let me know and I could maybe work on this for next term. Smiley

That would be neat! I don't mind the old ones but it is always fun to see something new. Smiley

OWL Subject & Option(if available): History of Magic
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Elizabethen corset
Brief Description: This year over summer I will be working at several renaissance and fantasy fairs. Unfotunately, I dont own a corset. I will be channeling my inner Fraulein Maria by using some very old but sturdy drapes! I realize that it is not exactly period but it will work well for a middle class woman. I do eventually plan on sewing one that is more period correct. I have the other supplies ordered and I will be making a mock up of it first so I can really make sure it fits. I will also be flossing all of the stays by hand. I expect this to take the full 6 weeks to make as I have never made one before and will be following lots of video tutorials as well as continuing to make product for the shop.

Do we know if the OWL prompts are the same as last term? I really want to begin work on something but I want to make sure it is put in under a correct class. Smiley
