Thanks for adding me at the last minute. I had planned to fill it out earlier but it's been a busy week.

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.

That dragon shawl is gorgeous. It looks great right there as a curtain topper!

midkiffsjoy - I love the halloween decorations for the doll house! the flagstones have such a great texture

Mistress Jennie - I am horribly disorganized, so I'm loving the idea of the spread sheet. One of my goals this semester is to post projects weekly, or at least close to when they are finished. I always end up posting on the last night, even though the pictures were taken weeks, or months before.

it said I needed edit access to make changes so I sent you a google message. I'm not familiar with google spread sheets though.

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
house-gryffindor
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
house-gryffindor
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.
