I just sent a pm with the list of addresses to everyone who signed up for the Holiday Owl Post. If you didn't receive the list please send me a message and I will get it to you. It's nice to have something to look forward to with the changes happening here.

I sent off a swap package today, and it was my 60th craftster swap. A lot of those were Hp swaps. Putting up our tree it made me smile to see the various handmade HP ornaments I have received over the years. I've also got lots of handmade items mixed in with the collection on my shelf. It has meant a lot to me.

edymion was willing to take on a 2nd partner when I signed up just after closing. The ornament she created is so adorable, I'm not sure how it was done. It's a recreation of fawkes rescuing our brave crew from the chamber of secrets. 

checkout fawkes beaded tail, and Lockharts cape!

and the tiny sweaters, and hermionie has the diary, sword, and sorting hat! the hands hook together so they can be seperated or rearranged. its so clever!

Thank you so much!

This is my charms Newt. It's the Letters to Hogwarts stitchalong. What I'm currently working on is the frame, then starting in january a new section will be realeased every 2 months. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bjFe0jWiAwTgvWtNcEvBKT4aM1SyJwAc/view

I didn't get my advance studies in on friday, but there is progress on my stitch a long! I've only done kits, or small things in the past. For this one, I order fabric online, as well as all the thread colors on the chart. I didn't check the numbers, or wind them onto bobbins. I just jumped in and it was going really well just digging through my bag for the colors that I needed. Until I started on the train with it's multiple shades of red. Either the store was out, or I got the wrong colors because they are not all here. I went to my local store and they don't carry some of what I need.  Embarrassed progress has slowed a bit and I am regretting my lazy ways. I'll be able to get the other colors I need next week.

Class/challenge -Headmistress -burrow challenge
house- gryffindor
project- upcycled cape

  This weekend, I was in a theatre performance of "The Games Afoot". I needed to dress as a 1930's actress going to a formal Christmas party. I had very little budget to spend on it though. I found a lovely dress at salvation army, but my director wanted me to have a covering on my arms to suit the time period. I kept looking around the shop until I found something I could upcycle. The color of this frilly nightie looked great with my dress, and would save me from hemming the edges.   
I cut out what I didn't need from the top part, and sewed the remaining skirt to the neckline of the dress.  There was enough fabric to create a flirty cape instead of just sleeves.

Holiday Owl Post Exchange
As the Head of Gryffindor house, I'm organizing a holiday card exchange. It is open to any Hogwarts student who would like to participate. The cards may be created by you or store bought. Let's share some seasonal cheer! If you are interested, please send me your mailing address in a pm by November 30. I will organize a list and send it to everyone who signed up. You can choose to send to addresses internationally, or to those only in your home country. This is not an official swap so tracking is not necessary. I also will not be monitoring who has sent and received. Whose ready for some Owl Post?

the play I was rehersing for was performed over the weekend. We were doing a murder mystery 'The Games Afoot".  My character was a 1930's actress so I got to dress fancy and it was lots of fun. It's nice to have freetime again though, and I'm in the planning stages of my project.

class/challenge -arithimancy
house- gryffindor
project - rhubarb birdbath

this project is both grey, and rigged. My library had a workshop using concrete, sand, and  a leaf to create a shallow dish. I think it's a rhubarb leaf, but it may be some other type of large leaf. It was a messy project, but fun. some of my origional leaf is still around the edges where it's white, but overall I'm happy with it. It catches rainwater for the birdies to bathe in.  there are lots of online tutorials if you are interested in trying it yourself. It was nice as a group project because the supplies come in such large amounts.

I recieved from FiberAlchemist a couple days ago, but haven't had time to take pictures till today. Prepare for envy!
this soft grey shawl is so beautiful. I may just keep it displayed on my dresser when I'm not wearing it. The niffler from a swap in another group already lives there.

Up close, the pattern has owls with gold bead eyes. She actually saw it stalking my pinterest, and I so glad she tried it.

She also included some extras! this adoreable Hagrid, and a choclate hermionie wand! Thank you so much, I just love all of it!

class/challenge- care of magical creatures
house- gryffindor
project- cat patch

I sent this in a swap earlier this summer, but never posted it here. The embroidered patch was inspired by a picture of my partners cat.

class/challenge- DADA
project -instapot chicken cacciatore

For this project I decided to try and create a new recipie for my instapot. It didn't turn out perfectly, but I can pass along what I tried. The chicken was tender and tasty but the sauce was to watery for serving over spagetti. It looked more like a soup. Before serving it as leftovers, I put it in a pan on the stove for additional boiling to thicken.

Instapot chicken cacciatore
1 jar spagetti sauce
1 1/2 cups water
3 chicken breasts
1 cup diced peppers and onions
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tsp italian seasonings

I cooked the peppers, onions, and garlic on the saute setting, then added the raw chicken breasts and poured the sauce and water over the top. It was cooked for 10 minetes on high pressure with a natural release. The chicken pulled apart easily with forks.

class/challenge -detention in the dungeons -advanced studies
house- gryffindor
project- charms newt

I've just started working on my newt project. so my before picture is blank fabric. 18 ct oatmeal aidia.

  It's a hp themed stitch along. It's fairly large so I decided to start at the top right corner instead of the center as I would for a  for a smaller project. Once the top part of the frame is done, and I'm confident that I have enough width for the project, then I'll cut off the excess. With gridding, stitching, and a little unstitching this little owl took over 2 hours but it's a start! The pattern doesn't call for backstitching to outline it, but on this fabric it might need it . I'll decided when it's further along.

class/challenge -detention in the dungeons -stash challenge
house- gryffindor
project- feather card

I found some feather stamps in my stash, and decided to create a neutral card to have on hand just in case. I keep plain white cards on hand, and randomly stamped them with black stayzon ink, then added color with a shear metallic paint. Now I have a card ready for any occasion.

class- herbology
project- bearded dragon atc

For the shrinking requirement of this assignment, these ATC's started as a full sheet drawing. I was thinking of making it into a pocket page, but I wasn't happy with how it was going. Instead, I cut the parts that I liked into individual ATC cards and added zentangle leaves and vines as well as color. I sent them as an extra in the geezer swap and my partner was excited to recieve them.

class/ challenge- soar
house- gryffindor
project -stamped terrarium

Our library has a craft room with a monthly make and take project. This month they had a set of succulent plant stamps, and a diamond shaped terrarium stamp along with an assortment of inks and blank cards. after a little experimenting, I liked the look of the layered leaves, and created 2 cards using the same shapes.
