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.

I sent my package from the post office this afternoon! I have so appreciated the swaps and how well organized they are. This makes my 60th swap, and I've never had a partner flake. Mistress Jennie, thank you so much for organizing.

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 a Holiday Owl Post reminder. If you are interested in sending and receiving Holiday cards please pm me your address by November 30. I currently have 6 people on the list. The cards can be made by you or store bought. You will recieve the list of addresses December 1st. This is not an organized swap so not tracking numbers are needed, and I will not be monitoring who sends and recieves. Let's just share a little cheer!

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.

having trouble narrowing down the ideas. After a couple messages with my partner though, I'm feeling a little clearer in my direction. The smaller scale of these projects is nice because you can try something, and if it doesn't work there is still time to try something else.

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.
