I know, so sad! But we will rise again!!! Check out the original announcement thread for updates.

I received from both crafty-becky and Koreena. Can post pics of crafty-Beckys tree right now, but Koreenas Swedish star is at home and not photographed yet, so that will have to wait for tonight.

This means I now have ALL my ornaments! Im going to hang them on the tree and take a picture with them all together tonight.

Awww... I want a Dumbledores Army bag!!!!

Annnnnd..... I received from Inselaeffchen! She sent the coolest things! First, this crocheted snitch ornament:

And then a little bag-in-a-bag for my son, who is into both D&D and HP. She did a mash-up with a D&D design on the outside of the storage case and a Weasleys Wizard Wheezes design on the bag itself.

I dont know how she did the printing on the bags-it looks super sleek and professional.

She also slipped me a couple of Christmas chocolates... yum! Thanks so much, Inselaeffchen!

Hooray! I received my package from jenleahlynn. She really outdid herself!

I'd asked for items for my son, who is a Ravenclaw. She stitched a beautiful ornament or bookmark, celebrating his house!

The stitching is so tiny and perfect!

And then my favorite, a translucent rendition of the Marauders Map, that proclaims, I solemnly swear that I am up to no good. It looks to be hand-drawn in shades of brown and metallic gold.

Its awesome! She said she made it with Shrinky-Dink. I cant wait to tuck them in my sons stocking! Thanks so much!!!

6  Fawkes Chamber of Secrets Ornament in Winter Holidays by endymion on: December 01, 2019 11:31:19 AM
Yay! My swap partner, jenleahlynn, received her ornament in the Harry Potter ornament swap, so I can now share more about how I made it.

She said Fawkes was one of her favorite creatures, so I decided to do Fawkes for her. I like sparkly ornaments that catch and reflect the light on the tree, so I thought Id do a version with some rhinestones and beads. Here he is:

Chamber of Secrets is one of her favorites, too, so I thought I try to depict one of Fawkes most prominent moments, when he rescues Harry, Ron, Ginny and Lockhart from the Chamber.

The figures needed to be super tiny (about one inch tall). I thought of various methods, and settled on spun cotton. I wanted there to be lots of movement to it, so I made the figures jointed at the waist so that the legs would dangle like the clapper of a bell. Here is a shot of the work in progress:

I had been planning to wire the characters hands together, and I asked my son what order they should go - book or movie version? He suggested I make it so that you could re-arrange the characters any way you wanted. So I made hooks and loops for all their hands.

I kept wanting to add more and more to it. So I made little accessories: Tom Riddles diary, the Sorting Hat, and the Sword of Gryffindor.

Probably should have left well enough alone, because I ended up smashing my finger with a hammer when trying to flatten a piece of wire to form the blade of the sword. Ouch!

Anyway, I hope jenleahlynn found it at least a little amusing. My son and I really liked it; I think Ill make one for our tree, also. What a fun swap!

8  Whats for Thanksgiving Dinner? in Recipes and Cooking Tips by endymion on: November 28, 2019 09:52:58 AM
We are having our traditional dishes: turkey, gravy, dressing, mashed potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce, yeast rolls, and pie for dessert.

This year, I decided to decorate the top of the pie. Here it is, just out of the oven!

The apples underneath distorted the design a bit... oh, well!

The edges leaked more than usual... hopefully will still taste good.

Everything is so cute! This is really making me want to put up a Christmas tree right this very minute!

I received my sweet little penguin from Thimbles 71 today. Plus a couple stitched extras thrown in. I love the Santa peeking in the window. And the handmade card is awesome! Thanks, Thimbles71!
