11  Re: ~*Harry Potter Craftalong - Midsummer Term 2017*~ Join anytime! in Craftalongs by noodle-bug on: June 12, 2017 05:22:09 AM
My First projects of the term!
Tom has been starting with my parents for a couple of weeks now, as his show is on tour to their town. So, after my exam, I headed up to visit them all for a few days  Grin

Challenge: anniversary '13 kitchen
House: ravenclaw
Project: fruit salad
Tom and I were rather tried and hungover on Friday, (following the election party!) - we cycled to the local greengrocer to pick up the makings of fruit salad and recuperates in the sun!
Fruit salad:
Chop and de-stone:
- a pound of cherries
- a punnet of strawberries
- 3 white nectarines
- 2 apples
- 2 oranges
- 2 pears
- A bunch of grapes
Squeeze the juice of a lime over it all to stop browning, and mix
Serve with yougurt to taste

We actually made this same fruit salad twice, since it was so good we went back to the greengrocer to make the same thing for everyone's supper!

Challenge: anniversary '15 celebrate library
House: ravenclaw
Project: origami flowers
Book recommendation: the graduate by Charles Webb
Some friends and I went to see Tom's current production, The Graduate - then we threw a party afterwards to celebrate the show and seeing each other again Smiley
I always make Tom paper flowers when I go to see his shows

Challenge: anniversary '16 mirror of erised
House: ravenclaw
Project: tee shirt refit
I wanted to wear my Corbyn tee shirt for the election party I was going to (basically a room of lefties staying up all night watching the results role in) - since it was the size of a tent on me, I took it in. I'm not that confident in a sewing machine, especially with stretchy fabric, so I actually first brought a cheap tee to practice on! I'm glad I did, because I also planned on braiding the neckline but hated how that looked on the practice tee! So I just cut the neck too make it off the shoulder, which is what I do with pretty much all men's cut tees.

Challenge: floo moon
House: ravenclaw
Project: channa saag
I'm reflecting the light of my favorite vegan recipe source: Isa Chandra, and one of my favorite of her dishes is get channa saag. Normally Tom does our cooking but I had a few days off work so I made dinner for once! Everyone - even my mum and dad who were target skeptical of the vegan food - enjoyed it

Challenge: Head June
House: ravenclaw
Project: sparkly converse
I painted my new red converse with red glitter! Yay! its actually leather paint, so I don't think it will last that long as the canvas bends more than leather would and i think the paint will crack

Challenge: floo Kyoto
House: ravenclaw
Project: kintsugi mug
The Japanese tradition of kintsugi is to repair objects with gold, based on the idea that things are made more beautiful by having been broken. I truly believe this, for people as well as objects!
My favorite mug got smashed, so I repaired it with gold paint along the edges of the shards - and used it to rehome this little succulent Smiley

14  Hexie Rainbow Rug in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by noodle-bug on: May 31, 2017 10:07:34 AM

This rug was a labour of love! fortunately, I really enjoyed doing it, I've been working on it on and if for a couple of years now; first making all the hexies, then sorting them into colours and sewing up. And it's finally finished!! I adore it, it makes me happy every time I see it, and as you see even my cat approves  Grin

It's made of 769 1-inch hexies, most of which were from leftover fabrics (or friend's leftovers, since I raided a few scrap boxes too). One if this things I love about EPP is that it lets you make use of what world otherwise be wasted; for example all my templates were made out of old homework sheets!

The back is just plain wool felt, and I sewed (is sewed a word??) a row of hexies all around the edge of the reverse of the top piece to give a nice edge.

He took a deep breath, scattered the powder into the flames, and stepped forward; the fire felt like a warm breeze; he opened his mouth and immediately swallowed a lot of hot ash.
Mistress Jennie & Deputy Headmistress Noodle-bug are trying to get to Honeydukes, but something has gone wrong.... Where are they?

Love the drop spindles!

Challenge: head's challenge - may
House: ravenclaw
Project: 3rd 4-square
It's the third quarter starter for my blanket - and it's consists of 3 squares, plus an extra just in case Wink

Challenge: House Pride
House: ravenclaw
Project: 4th 4-square
Including a lovely ravenclaw blue square!

Class: MS
House: ravenclaw
Project: moss stitch blanket square
One of the things I believe is that we should make full use of things, repair, recycle, or find uses for the leftovers - to avoid waste. My blanket squares all use left overs from other knitting projects. This is some noro remaining from knitting bedsocks Smiley

Challenge: floo volcano
House: ravenclaw
Project: 1st 4-square
So, I wanted to start sewing up my blanket squares. Or, rather, I DON'T want to be left with 182 squares to sew up all at once, so it's better to do it as I go!
But I don't want all the same colours together, so I decided that I'll actually sew it as four quarters, and any colours that I have more than one square of I'll split and put into different quarters, then finally in the end I'll sew the 4 quarters together Smiley
To make these first 4-squares (the foundation of each quarter) I just blind choose squares. I don't want there to be any discernable pattern in the final thing. So, here's to unpredictability!

Class: HoM
House: ravenclaw
Project: 2nd 4-square
The beginnings of my blanket! Also reflecting the families theme since I'm knitting all my squares on a set of needles inherited from my ever-knitting Nan!
