We put up our HP tree!! Such fun, and it looks amazing from many of these swaps. Look carefully, you'll probably see something you made on there!! I'm missing one or two things, they have migrated to the other tree, but will be recalled!

Also in the picture is our nascent Dolly shrine, which goes very well with the flamingo inspired advent wreath. (The taste police will be knocking on the for shortly  Grin

And all lit up! It's not a big tree, but it's so full so many amazing decorations

I received from Anna. Gorgeous jewelry, she spoiled me. I love the colours. And there's a gazillion beads in them, she has so much patience!!

The red and oranges in this are so lovely and sunny on this grey day. And the blue is beautiful

I really love dragonflies and sparkles. So I adore this and a matching bracelet

SPEW fundraiser for a cancer support charity
Project-earrings and display frame. Lots of silver in them. The cancer support group who have been amazing to me, are having a craft fair this weekend. I really didn't have my head together on this one, so I blitzed this bunch of earrings today. Three pairs were made last week, but the rest today. I dismantled an old picture frame. Covered the board in fabric and have used it as a display. Hopefully they will make loads of cash

I taught a class in making earrings from paper beads on Tues, so two of the earrings were made then. The rest (9 pairs, I made today)

Class November detention
House ravenclaw
Project description. Progress on my NEWT (finally!!) I took some plain red cotton and screen printed it with a heraldic device (omg that was almost at year and a half ago!!). Then sat and looked at it for months!!. I finally got a friend to help me make a pattern and I cut and fitted the bodice for a cotehardie. Cut up the skirts and , totally screwed up cutting out the skirt. Basically I would have had to have a waist three inches in diameter for it to work. So I had to sew all the fabric back together and start again. It worked ok. Today I spent time touching up the printing. It's now hanging for a week or so for the hem to settle so I can cut it evenly (in the meantime my sewing machine has been buggered-a knot of thread between the tension discs I think ..aarrrrrgghhh) so I walked away from it today. But so far I've printed the fabric and made the outside of the dress. My personal jury is out on it. I might rip it up and alter it significantly yet. the fabric

The dress, just hanging for the hem to drop

Class/Challenge/House Pride: detention August
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: paper flowers for wedding decorations
Project Page Link:
Brief Description: I am having a very hibernatory time at the moment, with no inclination to go out into the world. Little inclination to craft either, so I thought something that has been hanging around, that needs doing, and that is fairly easy would suit.

I made these coffee filter paper flowers. You cannot get coffee filters here any more, No idea why, not being a coffee drinker, so I bought these on aliexpress. 100 filters made 18 flowers, they are coloured with food colouring. I think I might make a gazillion more, they are so fast to make and I thikn they look good. And in my world decorations are best en masse.

Project Name: Knitted Knockers... The Crochet Version
Project Link: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=455906.0
Brief Description: Knitted Knockers (knittedknockers.org) are given to women who have had a mastectomy. They're made out of 100% Pima cotton from Cloudborn Fibers so they're nice and soft. They have a drawstring opening on the back so they can be stuffed by the user, and the stuffing can also be removed so the knockers can be washed. I bought 3 kits several months ago, and finally had a chance to (correctly) make the first pair.

Project Picture:

that is a great project, well done, and thank you.
