Prompt: March - Dying Slave
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Knit houndstooth pumpkin
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: A friend asked me to make some pumpkins for her. Knowing she loves houndstooth, I tried two different patterns for her. She didn't like either in the end. I actually quite like the knit one myself. The pumpkin on the right is for this prompt as the pattern looks very detailed even though it's actually pretty simple.

Prompt: April - Caterpie/Eastern Tiger Swallowtail Caterpillar
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: crochet houndstooth pumpkin
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My first attempt at the houndstooth pattern was actually a crocheted version, pictured in the photo above on the left. I was not a fan of how it turned out, so I tried the knit version next. This fits because pumpkins start as a flower then transform into a squash.

Prompt: February - Playstation vs Nintendo 64
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Snowman #1
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Roler asked me to make two snowmen for her parents (they would be the front two in this photo). They are 3d since they are stuffed amigurumi. I'm using the red and green hatted snowman for this prompt.

Prompt: April - Mudkip/Axolotl
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Snowman #2
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: The second snowman in the front in turqua and lime is also for roler's parents. I love snowmen. Once when I was living in Eastern WA, we got three feet over snow in a two hour period. We were helping my FIL shovel his driveway, but he only had two shovels. I decided to help by making a snowman... I started with a small snowball and started rolling it down the drive. By the time I reached the foot of the hill he lived on, the ball was so large that I couldn't move it anymore. It took my husband, my FIL, and me pushing together to get it out of the driveway. Oops! :p

Prompt: April - Sandslash/Pangolin
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Snowman #3
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: My first cousin once removed asked me to make her a snowman as well in the turqua and lime colors (I shared an old photo in a Facebook memory, which both my cousin and roler saw and loved). Hers is the snowman in the back of the photo. This fits the prompt because snowmen are round.
Project Picture:
The same three snowmen, but with the flash on to see the colors a little better


Prompt: April - Poliwog/Translucent Tadpoles
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Pumpkin #1
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: The friend I tried making the houndstooth pumpkins for ended up asking me to make her a total of nine pumpkins. Three large ones and six small ones. I have this photo and another photo that shows the colors a little better. I'll share the other photo about halfway through posting since I didn't take individual photos of each pumpkin.

I'll start with the large red plaid pumpkin on the top back left. It fits this prompt because it has a distinctive pattern.

Prompt: April -Chatots/Yellow Collared Lovebirds
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Pumpkin #2
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: Next up is the large black plaid pumpkin on the top back right of the photo above. It has more than one color, and while monochrome, I think it still fits the prompt.
Project Picture:

Prompt: August - Bard
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:

Prompt: August - Druid

Prompt: September - Castle
Team: Multimedia
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Pumpkin #5
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: This one is the small red pumpkin on the top row front right. I used acrylic yarn for these pumpkins. Acrylic is a plastic and lasts a very long time.

Team: Multimedia

Back after several weeks traveling!  Now to see if anything I've made recently fits a prompt...

Class/Challenge: Herbology
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Green Starbursts Doll Dress
Brief Description: Well, it's certainly green.  I like using really dark shades of this color for winter, even if the print is a bit more summery (it kind of looks like fireworks or dandelions).

November Themes


Citron by amazing_podgirl, on Flickr

Color: Brown
Pattern: Tartan, Plaid, or Checks
For: Transportation - your car, bike, water-buffalo, however you get around.
Challenge 1: In our family we have a saying "all done but the pressing" quoting a great-grandmother who was great at starting projects but not so great at the final details needed to make them usable.  Put the finishing touches on any languishing almost-finished projects.
Challenge 2: Make things in bulk.  Those multiples may come in handy next month.

The weather was absolutely perfect yesterday. 72F (22C), cool, low humidity, light breeze, blue skies, and sunny. So I took a mental health afternoon and hit the local conservation park nearby and showed Iki some of natural Florida.


This is part of the estuary at the edges of Tampa Bay. They rent canoes and have launches so you can also paddle the waterways of the park in addition to the walking/hiking paths.



Some of the natural underbrush and pinewood flats common to the area.



They have a boardwalk over the marshes edges so you can walk through the mangroves.


We wound up walking the Otter Trail. It was 1.7 miles.






We even encountered an armadillo rooting around and eating dinner!  Grin



The end of the trail took us across some salt marshes.

And by this point, the sun was getting low, so it was time to head home. But what a nice afternoon we had!

Oh my gosh, Ant Bee, I LOVE THAT WEASLEY SWEATER!

Also - thanks again for carrying on Advanced Studies Friday without me last week. I planned and ran an Art Night at my son's school last Friday. It was super fun but A LOT of work. I should have made it an OWL or NEWT itself!

Just a few things from me...

Class: Astronomy
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Page Link: Fabric Covered Diaper Boxes
Brief Description: Organizing toddler land (also known as my house) is a constant, never ending battle. Rather than purchasing more plastic or fabric boxes that I will end up throwing away, I decided to upcycle some of the many, many diaper boxes we accumulate on a weekly basis. I pulled some fabric from my stash, hot glued it to some boxes, filled them with toys, and ta-da! Instant organization with zero purchasing and zero waste!

Class: Divination
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Page Link: Naruto Costume
Brief Description: Not only did this costume involve LOTS of scissor action, it also ended up being pretty difficult. The jacket had to be totally re-done and stitched on an old hoodie, but it came out in the end. The hair is lots of little felt pieces hot glued on an aluminum foil and duct tape mold of kiddo's head.

Challenge: Headmistress Challenge: Burrow
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name & Page Link: Photo Booth Backdrop
Brief Description: For the Art Night last Friday, I took an old sheet and turned it into a photo booth backdrop! Lots of painters tape, any paint colors in my stash (I added a few dots and circles to the more drab colors), and hours of painting in my dining room later and the transformation was complete! Here are a few shots, including one of me and my art-night-planning partner in crime during the event!

Maybe it was all the layers PIoneer9 but I had a hard time getting a clear pic too. Took me many tries and I finally had to go outside

Class/Challenge: Floo Powder: Williamsburg
Spew: N/A
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: A Christmas sweater for a new old doll.
https://youtu.be/n4WxKSw23QY
Brief Description: This is a 1978 Lesney Ginny doll, who has an entire HOST of issues I'll detail later, that I was gifted last week for my birthday. She needs a wardrobe of clothes that aren't from the disco era, and no patterns were put out for the Lesney Ginny dolls, or skinny Ginnys. Tis the season so I tried to make her a sweater from a sock following a Youtube video. It's way tricker than it looked and took me hours of hand sewing. It reminds me of how most of our ancestors hand sewed the clothing they wore and how children learned to sew clothing by hand by sewing clothing for their doll. It even reminded me of how nothing ever went to waste. Clothing could be wonky or badly made and it STILL got worn and patched and worn until it fell completely apart. Rofl

Class/Challenge: Alchemy
SPEW: N/A
House: Slytherin
Project Name & Page Link:. Pumpkin Chili  https://juliasalbum.com/pumpkin-chili-recipe/
Brief Description: ... a recipe using tinned foods This meatless meal uses easy canned beans and pumpkin puree, although if you are a fancier cook than dump it in and run me you could jazz it up as you see fit.

Class/Challenge: HM: The Burrow
SPEW: N/A
Project Name & Page Link:. Weasley Sweater
Brief Description: For the Autumn Madam Malkin swap I had planned to make a pair of slippers for my swap partner and then in a convo she mentioned that her dearest wish was a Weasley sweater and Im just sleep deprived and foolish enough to think I could pull that off by the deadline even with a one year old in my presence 24/7. (Insert memes of everyone laughing here.) So, I channeled my inner Molly and one million years later (and way past deadline, le sigh) the poor dear got her swap item and Merlins Beard- it fit and all! May she wear it in good health for many Christmases to come. Smiley
Project Picture:
I didn't get a good pic of it all finished but here is an in-progress shot and all packed to go. You can see an action shot if you pop over to the Madam Malkin's swap gallery.
