Mistress_Jennie That afghan is beautiful! I haven't done any ripple crocheting yet, but the effect is so pretty - especially in a star! Lovely!

Patty_o_furniture HOLY COW!! Shocked I'm green as Salazar Slytherin's ghost with envy at your AMAZING movie room. ANd the honeydukes cabinet is perfect! that scale is a brilliant touch.

ErinAquahearts Ahhhh! Your artwork is always so squee-inducing! Cheesy And boy do the pumpkiny goodies look tasty! What a great idea to double the spices! A lot of pumpkin recipes are good but leave me wanting a bit *more*. I'm going to try that!

Class: History of Magic
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W.: N/A
Project Name: Butterbeer Cookies

Class: Quidditch Match #12 - Thundelarra Thunderers
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W.: N/A
Project Name: Jinbeisan Dangly Charm
Project Description: When one of my daughters fell in love with San-X's Jinbeisan, I couldn't stop myself from making a cute shrinky-dink charm of him! I've used shrinky-dinks a few times, but I'm still in the learning-curve process and they are definitely still outside my comfort zone. I tried using alcohol-based markers on them for the first time, and was pleased with the results. The blue "bubbles" are made with clear shrink plastic, and the whale shark himself is made from opaque white plastic. I sealed him with dimensional glaze, and he turned out a bit bubbly. That's OK since he's an underwater creature, but next time I will experiment with using UV Resin.

I'm back from a trip to WI and catching up on all the great projects, as well as submitting some of my own. Smiley


Class: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Lovely Leftovers
Project Description: After seeing the wallet I'd made for myself, one of my daughters requested one for herself. Smiley I love that these can be made with such a small amount of fabric. It's a great project for transforming leftovers into something lovely!

Challenge: A Pinch of Floo Powder - Aviary
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Undersized Undies
Project Description: One of my dolls has been going commando (!!) for far too long and needed some panties. I found a cute pattern and added some elastic to the legs for a better fit. I always think projects like this should take just a few minutes, but after all the pinning and fiddling with elastic, it's never as easy as I think it's going to be. :-/ Still, I love how they came out, and Airi is thrilled to finally have panties, LOL!

Class: Detention in the Dungeons - July
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Bitty Bloomers
Project Description: Another fiddly elastic project. I had cut these out ages ago and then put off sewing them up because of all the elastic work. During my stint in the dungeon, I dug out the fabric pieces and my elastics, and sewed everything up. Kiki does enjoy having some bloomers, because her short tunic tends to flash her undies when she plays.

Challenge: House Pride
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Badgery Blotter
Project Description: I've been needing some new dishcloths in the kitchen, so I knitted up this Huffle-themed one and crocheted a border around the edge.
Project Pic:



Challenge: Quidditch Match #8 - Sumbawanga Sunrays
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Green Cleaner
Project Description: I was inspired by the formation looping of the Sunrays to make this dishcloth. There are lots of loops forming the main body, and the edge is formed by looping the yarn an extra time near the beginning of each row.
Project Pic:



Challenge: Quittitch Match #9 - Appleby Arrows
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Dotty Dress for Sasha
Project Description: In keeping with the arrow-shooting tradition of celebrating the Appleby Arrows, I sewed this dress for Sasha. I was originally going for an MSD-sized dress, but the proportions were all wrong. Fortunately, they were PERFECT for Sasha, so that was a happy accident.
Project Pic:



Challenge: Quidditch Match #11 - Moose Jaw Meteorites
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W: N/A
Project Name: Sparkly Sumikko Gurashi Bracelet
Project Description: One of my daughters adores the Sumikko Gurashi figures (as do I) and is especially fond of the "Pengin?" character. I used clear flake stickers and UV resin in a cabochon bracelet to make this for her. It might be kind of hard to see in the pic, but after doing a base layer and setting in the sticker flakes and adding another layer of resin, I arranged tiny rhinestones all around the circumferences of the circles before encasing them in more resin.

Ludo Bagman strides in, jingling a crushed velvet sack of what can only be gold coins. He's fully kitted out in his old Wimbourne Wasps robes, right down to the protective equipment.
"Anyone care to make a wager on these matches?" he asks, eyes sparkling.
"Ahem!" Professor McGonagall appears as if from thin air and takes his elbow, gently guiding him aside. "Surely that's not entirely appropriate in a school, Mr. Bagman," she says.
"Oh, ah, yes!" Bagman responds. He turns , straightening his helmet. "Perhaps a little non-monetary wager," he says. "House Points?" He glances sidelong at McGonagall, and winces under the force of her glare. "Oh, look! Chocolate fudge!" he says, and scurries off.

House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W.: N/A
Project Name: Tiny Snitch-Catching Wristers
Project Description: Although these are super tiny and pretty quick to knit, they take longer than you might imagine. Or maybe I'm just a slow knitter. All the same, they qualify for the Tutshill Tornadoes quick-catch challenge!
Project Pic:


Class/Challenge: Quidditch Match #15 Ballycastle Bats
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W.: N/A
Project Name: Default Dishcloth
Project Description: Knitting has become one of my preferred mediums, and I used a time-tested, well-loved pattern ("Grandma's Favorite") to make this dishcloth. In spite of being Quiberion pink, this one's for the Ballycastle Bats!

A few rolling in from me. I always think that tiny knitting should go quickly, but I guess when you scale down the needles and yarn to go with the size, it's still going to take the same amount of time to knit the same number of stitches. Tongue

Challenge: Floo Powder - Muggle Excuses Office - Anniversary Challenge 2014, Sign the Parchment
House: Hufflepuff
S.P.E.W.: N/A
Project Name:Slouchy hat for Durango

Challenge: Headmistress Challenge - June
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spumoni Hair Tamer
Project Description: As a martial arts student and instructor, I find hair in my face super annoying during class. I decided it was time for a summery cotton hairband to keep things under control! I used this pattern, but modified it by knitting it longer, omitting the ties, and sewing the ends together.
