GREAT job on the quilt, edelC!  It looks fantastic, I love all the purples!  Also, that dragon shirt is awesome.


Need more prompts!!


You know, now that you've finished an OWL, you're eligible to propose a NEWT!  And you can have another OWL going at the same time, if you're feeling ambitious...  Wink

I'm about to add the next philosopher's stone prompt, so gimme about 5 minutes and go check! ((I know the badges need adding, sorry guys!))

Moonflame - my response to just about everything you make is 'whoa, it's so tiny! How the heck does she keep it so neat when its all so tiny?!!'
Seriously, I can't be that tidy and well made on a full size thing  Cheesy

Challenge; PS#4 kaos with keys
Team; just me
House: ravenclaw
Project; spag bol
Inspired by a recent conversation with mistress Jennie, and having some slightly past their best tomatoes lieing about, I made spag bol last night

Recipe;
Chop and fry and onion, plus a couple of cloves of garlic
Throw into the same pan a bag of Quorn mince
Chop and throw in tomatoes - I used about 10 cheery toms plus 2 regular ones
Once mince is brown, add a tin of chopped tomatoes, plus a dash of worchester sauce, a teaspoon of marmite, a swig of beer (usually red wine, but I was drinking beer and thought I'd try. Worked well!), some basil.
Chop and add large handful of mushrooms
Chop and add a stick of celery
Leave on a low heat for half an hour or so, stirring often.
Serve sprinkled with parmasan, on pasta, with cheesy garlic bread (hmm hmm carb loading!!)

Challenge; PS#5 chess-test
Team: me
House; ravenclaw
Project: drawing
I'm trying to get back on the drawing wagon - I warned my friend that I'll be sending him a series of 'upside down copies' on postcards, to give me an incentive Smiley
This line drawing is young ada Lovelace, copied from the book 'adventures of Lovelace & babbage' by Sydney Paula.
My composition is off, and the fingers are rubbish (but then... The fingers in the original aren't much better...) But otherwise I'm happy with how it came out

The next TWO philosopher's stone prompts are up on my board... However my phone is being an arse about letting me upload the badges so I'll have to add them later!

And did you know that you can scrape the burn off toast with a butterknife? Well, depending on how blackened it has become. But just a thin layer of char works grand.

I scrape the boys, he doesn't mind a few burnt bits. But I hate them, and find even the tiniest bit ruins food for me - I know it's somewhat wasteful but frankly I'm a not willing to spoil a meal for myself by refusing to replace toast, add then I probably wouldn't finish it and so waste even more.
But, when I have left over fat (usually if the housemates have made themselves breakfast, add I'm veggie) I always save that - because then you can crumb any burnt stuff, roll it in the fat, and put it out as a great bird feeder.

Edel- I hear you about the rats! Tom (boyfriend) lives on a narrow boat, at least one a week I get startled by one running in front of me ad i cycle back to his!! Ugh!

Challenge: detention, October
House: ravenclaw
Project; tea tag
This afternoon I was looking at the teapot cozy I made.And decided it was a bit plain - it's a present for my aunt who has pretty whimsical tastes! Do I whipped up this tea tag to add to it


Class: herbology
House; ravenclaw
Project;
I went to the big knitting and stitching exhibition, and whilst there took part in a spinning class! I've never spin before, it was just with a drop spindle but I enjoyed it a lot. You can see in this sample I was playing with thicknesses (not always on purpose...)! The fibers I used were red, yellow, and pale blue. I brought more so expect to see a full skein soon (just... Not that soon! I am slow at this!)


Challenge; PS#3
Team: me!
House: ravenclaw
Project:
Simple breakfast - or a short course in the moderation of the application of heat

You will need;
Bread, eggs, milk, coffee grounds, water, tomatoes, cheese, veggie 'bacon' slices
Method;
- toast bread under the grill - burn the first side, throw out to the birds, toast more bread
- break 4 eggs into a jug, add a smidge of milk, grate singe cheese and add to the mix
- realise you forgot the toast and it's burnt again. Throw to birds. Toast more bread.
- put veggie bacon in frying pan
- in separate pan, make scrambled cheesy eggs
- put a pot of coffee on
- flip bacon
- realise you were so distracted by cooking veggie bacon for the first time,  you forgot the toast again. Seriously. Throw away burnt toast.
- realise you're out of bread. Turn off both hobs, instruct boyfriend that it'd he values your sanity at all he'll have saved you a cup of coffee. Walk to shop, buy more.
- eggs and bacon now cold. Feed them to cat. Drink coffee.
-start again: make toast, scrambled cheesy eggs, fry bacon, grill tomatoes
- become so paranoid about burning toast that you leave out a bit undercooked, and same with tomatoes.
- have boyfriend tell you they're the best scrambled eggs he ever had, decide he's worth the hassle but tell him he's still in charge of breakfast next Sunday. Look at fat birds in garden, listen to happy cat purr.
