Class/Challenge/House Pride:Head Mistress Challenge - September
SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: My 18" Doll Notebook
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: When I began sewing doll clothes again, I worked on an 18" doll (who I nicknamed... a Bennett Sister).  I had to keep these patterns separate from the patterns for Clara and Syble (my 11.5" dolls).  All my dolls are going to wear period outfits, while any I sew for the grand-kids will be modern styles.  So I got a large D-ring binder and some pencil holders to put in the binder (to hold the patterns I purchased or were given to me).  Behind the pencil holders, I made a section to hold downloaded patterns in sleeve protectors.  The downloaded patterns are divided in two sections... historical and modern.  As I add patterns I may add more sections.  Since my craft area is so small, it has really helped to keep my patterns organized on one shelf of my white bookshelf.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder - Court Casting
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Halloween Coaster
Project Page Link (if available): http://pinkmambo.com/crochet/stitch-patterns/how-to-crochet-circles-part-1/
Brief Description: This challenge was to craft something that makes me laugh.  While I was at the store I saw some Peaches and Creme crochet yarn in black with orange accents.  What a hoot it would be to make Halloween coasters for our drinks.  So I found an old coaster pattern on Pinterest and used it.  It looks rather strange on the night table in my Victorian bedroom, but it will only be there until the "spooks" are gone (Then Harold the Elf will probably be around, since he's on vacation right now).

SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Hawaiian Rabbit on Rice
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: This class required I do something I would like to be remembered for.  Well, I like to cook, so i will be remembered for my cooking.  This recipe is an adaptation of the Hawaiian Chicken I make in the slow cooker.  It turned out very good and everyone loved it.  This recipe fed 7 with no leftovers.  The recipe follows:

Ingredients:
   12 rabbit legs
   1 - 20 oz can of crushed pineapple
   1 - bottle of regular barbecue sauce
   1/2 cup honey
   2 cups rice
   4 cups water

Directions:
   1.  Rinse rabbit legs.
   2.  Mix the pineapple, barbecue sauce, and honey in a bowl until well mixed.
   3.  Pour a small amount of the pineapple/barbecue sauce/ honey mixture in a slow cooker.
   4.  Put in a layer of legs.
   5.  Continue alternating steps 3 and 4 until all legs are in the cooker.
   6.  Cover with a final layer of sauce.
   7.  Cook until legs are done (approximately 4 hours on high/ 8 hours on low)
   8.  During the last 1/2 hour, cook the rice in the water.
   
I put some rice in the bottom of he bowl with a leg on top.  I poured some of the sauce over the leg and rice.

seeuudee...
Yes, that's it.  I got to it through Pinterest but couldn't do that on the phone so I tried to type in the website address.  I went back and corrected it by putting the Pinterest address. 

Thanks for letting me know the link didn't work.  I appresiate that.

Class/Challenge/House Pride:  Quidditch  Bumphing / Iron Chef - Apple
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Apple Pie Filling Jam
Project Page Link (if available):https://www.pinterest.com/pin/11681280260917737/
Brief Description: While researching Muggle sporting events, I noticed that everyone would get something to eat during the game.  I decided that was one way to be more comfortable during the game.  We love picnics too.  So I though I would combine the game and a picnic.   I made this apple pie filling jam (who doesnt like apple pie?) to go with biscuits in the morning.  Then we could take biscuits and jam in a picnic basket to the game and enjoy both at the same time.  While making the jam I discovered that I was out of nutmeg (but I still had some apple pie spice) So), so I substituted the apple pie spice for the cinnamon and nutmeg in the original recipe.  That made the jam a little darker but it still tasted great.  So we're off to the game, basket in hand.  Go Ravenclaw!

P.S. I was also out of liquid pectin so I used the powdered pectin.  It still worked though.

Project Name: Muppet Eyeglass Holder
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: The kids like to play on the DS Light so I have a docking station on my night table.  Since the DS have been put up for a while, I have been using the docking station as an eyeglass holder so I don't accidentally knock my glasses off the night table.  I woke up in the night thinking... " sure looks like one of those grumpy men in the Muppets show". This afternoon I started doodling on the docking station and a face appeared.  I then went over the doodle with permanent sharpies.  Gosh that stuff dries quickly!  When I was done I had a grumpy Muppet eyeglass holder.  The nice thing is that it still charges the DS fine.

Abeeroad... The rules are the same as regular tic-tac-toe with the exception that you are dealing with three dimensions at once.  You can win horizontally,  vertically,  or diagonally  (diagon alley ...lol )
So you really have to pay attention to all three directions at once.  My AP  (advanced placement) students loved this game!

Project Name: Poly Clay Piggy Charm.
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: I saw a picture on Pinterest of a polymer clay pig charm.  There were no instructions, so I just winged it.  This is the result.  This one is for AnnoyingBabySister,  who is not old enough to be sorted into a house yet, so the scarf is a solid color. I love working with clay and making miniature objects, especially whimsical creatures.

House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Coasters and a Doiley for my Bedroom
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: After decorating my bedroom, I decided my night table needed a little something.  My water glass sometimes sweats and leaves water on the table so I decided to crochet a coaster to absorb the water.  I did not use apattern, I just worked it in the round until I had it the desired size.  I then did the same for a doily under my lamp except I crocheted the doily in double crochet and the coaster in single crochet (to absorb the water better). Oh, I crocheted a loop to be able to hang the coaster on the hook for my tablet cable.

Project Name: Piggy Charm for Maddy
Project Page Link (if available): na
Brief Description:  While making the charm for AnnoyingLittleSister, I had a really hard time making the scarf and putting it on the charm.  I had to cut tiny pieces of the green and silver, join them together in alternating bands and put the scarf on the pig so it would lay flat.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quidditch  - Blurting
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Rolling pin handle
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: Two years age, someone knocked my marble rolling pin off the table and the handle broke.  Since then I have been using it without a handle, grumbling every time I used it.  I guess I was just too lazy to fix it (or something on that order).  When the Quidditch match came up and I saw the description of Blurting, I decided to just get off my bum and do something about the broken handle.  I was afraid to break the other half of the handle (if it aint brokedont fix it"  mentality).  So i obtained a dowel rod, drilled a hole in one end, hoping I was making it the right size for the metal rod to fit tightly. I then sanded it down so it was smooth and comfortable in my hand.  When I was satisfied, I put it on the rod (yes, it was a perfectly tight fit) and tried it out.  Gee why didnt I do this sooner? Next time I will try to fix broken things sooner rather than later.  It sure rolls nicely nownot nearly as much energy required!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Muggle Studies
SPEW: n/a
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Bedroom Decorating
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: During my research into Muggle sports, I found an obscure sport called redecorating.   I then found many programs on the television about this sport showing competitions between teams who were redoing entire houses! I thought I would learn this sport by decorating my new bedroom from top to bottom.  I started by painting the walls white and the floor a pale peach blush.  This white made the room more spacious and the floor gave it more of a Victorian feel.  One end of the room would be my sleeping area and the other would be my crafting area.  It took quite a while to complete, but I am happy with the results.

Project Name: 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe
Project Page Link (if available): n/a
Brief Description: Many years ago, while teaching high school, I saw a 3-D Tic-tac-toe set and bought it for my students.  They enjoyed it immensely.  Since then it has disappeared.   So I decided to make one for us to play with.  I used 3/8 inch dowel rod and beads, and a square piece of wood.  I painted half of the beads so we could tell them apart when playing.

Project Name: Winter Accessories for Clara
Project Page: making-doll-clothes.com
Project Description: MidkiffsJoy inspires me all the time.  Every time I turn around, she is doing something new.  For this project, she inspired me to crochet a beret (something I have never done before).  So I made one for Clara.  Then she said Well she needs a scarf to go with that beret.  So I made the scarf by doing the following:
   Chain 5.  Single crochet in the second chain from hook and each chain to the end.  *Chain 1 and turn.  Single crochet in each single crochet to end of row.* Repeat instructions between * * until scarf is desired length. Bind off. Add fringe.

P.S.  Now I have to make some for the AG doll.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Quid ditch Keeper / Iron Chef - Spinach
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Garden Omelet
Project Page Link (if available): none
Brief Description: I was going to make sausage and eggs for breakfast, but someone had eaten all the sausage.  So I started rummaging in the fridge to see what I could make for breakfast.  I found onions, pepper (red, yellow, orange, and green), tomatoes, yellow squash, cheese, and SPINACH!  I diced up all the veggies and beat the eggs.  I shredded the spinach. I added the seasonings to the eggs.  I heated an omelet pan, and added the butter so it would melt.  I poured the eggs in the pan and let it cook.  I then flipped it so the other side c would cook a little.  I then added the veggies, reserving some of the tomatoes, onions, spinach and cheese for a topping.  I folded the egg over the veggies to make an nice looking omelet and slid it on a warm plate.  I then topped it with the reserved veggies and cheese.  This omelet made me stay in one place a long time, and then, when I couldnt eat any more, I gave the rest to AnnoyingBabySister to eat. It took her quite a while too. 
Ingredients:
   2 eggs
    small onion
    of each pepper (red, yellow, orange, green)
   1 small yellow squash
   1 medium tomato
   1 nice handful baby spinach, shredded
    cup cheese, shredded
   2 pats butter
  tbs Natures Seasons
  Salt and pepper to taste
