I am sharing my entry for our area county fair's "Theme" category - - I will be up against any craft, needlework orany  artistic item you can dream of!  This years fair theme is "Where the West is Fun"
I created a mixed media canvas -- background is created with acrylic paints and spray mists, I stamped the circles with shot glasses dipped in paints.  Decopauged torn book pages

I like how it turned out, but am a little unsure about placement of lasso.

I am hoping for a blue ribbon!!

Okay, that's not really the name. I never really gave it a name. But given the tree design, I thought it was funny just now and decided to roll with it. I made this shelf a few years ago when I was renting a basement apartment. I couldn't paint so I started starching fabric to the wall for color/decoration. This turned into starching fabric onto boards and constructing several shelves for decoration and storage. This one will always be my favorite. Even if I had to re-purpose it after I moved.

I just came in from swimming. At 9:30pm, it's cooled off to 95F, but I was freezing. So I got out of the pool and decided to work on my research project to stay warm. I'm getting closer and closer to being done! I think it will be about 50 hours worth of work by the time I finish the rows, add side borders, and weave in ends. I'm hoping to finish this in the next few days Smiley

Just finished this purse. It's the Louise pattern by Swoon that is May's Bag of the month pattern. I really like the pattern, but the pink irridecent leather was a super pain to sew, it was slippery and sticky all at once.
Also I forgot to add the fleece stabilizer in the side and am not sure now if it's good enough to sell. But I love how it looks and will definitely be making more of this pattern.
Thanks for looking.

Is it easier or harder on our Headmistresses with project dumps?  I would hope easier with linking!  .... either way *lets homework spill out of my Hermione bag*

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Alchemy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Creme Brulee Again
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: I found a recipe that you can make creme brulee in the pressure cooker, so I've been trying to make it.  First time, overcooked = sweetened scrambled eggs.  Second time, still overcooked.  Third time, scrambley outside runny inside.  Lastly, set well enough... but... still wasn't all that amazing.  So I don't think I'll try again, just because my family doesn't really like it.  I think I need to taste test at a restaurant to see if I just don't like them, or if I just don't like this recipe. http://www.pressurecookingtoday.com/creme-brulee-in-the-pressure-cooker/

Project Name: Easter Sign

Brief Description: This sign took forever and not because of painting.  The edges of the wood were super rough and all I had was sandpaper and muscle.  Took hours! I felt super slow... at least I had Netflix in the background.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress - Cup
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Farmyard
Project Page Link: -
Brief Description: Got chickens and rabbits to add to our urban farm this year, but needed a place for them.  Bought 2 coops and a hutch kit.  Painted them all to match and then put up a fence to contain them when we want to let them out for some more room to roam. That required lots of Hufflepuff toil!  Hours and hours of toil.  Oy!

From browns and green roofs... to classic barn red and white, with rubberized black roof.

Brief Description: Something I've loved to do lately is make cupcakes! They've become my specialty so family members ask me to make them for parties.  These I made for my nephews 2nd bday.  Whenever he comes to visit he goes straight for the "nananananas!" so I made banana cupcakes.  Even made bananas and his name for chocolate decorations.  http://www.yourcupofcake.com/2012/04/easy-banana-cupcakes.html

Details of this totally awesome swap:

What Harry Potter fan wouldn't love to live in the Burrow?  A house filled with magic and love, plus a whole lot of gingers!  Harry, who has grown up in his Aunt Petunia's very tidy, very boring, and very non-magical home, falls in love with the Burrow on his first trip there, after being rescued from Little Winging by Fred, George and Ron.  There he finds an overgrown garden full of real gnomes, stacks of dishes washing themselves in the sink, endless home cooking from Molly Weasley, and rooms stacked one on top of another, seemingly by magic.  For this swap we will be crafting 1 Medium to Large, Harry Potter inspired houseware item for your partner.  The object can be any size in physical dimensions, but should take a minimum of 2-3 hours, (or more!) of crafting time.

Think beyond House Scarves or wands and into the realm of objects to cozy-up your partner's home.  These can be subtle nods to the HP books and movies, or more overtly HP-specific creations.  If you're going for subtle, how about a scrappy rag rug like Molly might make out of worn clothes?  If your partner is trying to cozy-up their living space, you could whip up a set of HP Throw Pillows!  Or a Weasely Clock for your partner to keep track of their family.  If you want to bring a little extra light into your partners home you could create a Sirius Black Quote Lamp.  If your partner's kitchen feels a bit drab, you could make them a set of CheeriOwls Breakfast Bowls or a set of HP dishcloths to warm it up.  

Other ideas include:
Cross Stitched Wall Art
Crocheted House Unity Afghan
Hogwarts House Coasters
Deathly Hallows Quilt
Tale of the Three Brothers Plaque
HP Felt Coasters
Ravenclaw Baby Quilt
HP Embroidered Cloth Napkins
Philosopher's Stone Reliquary
Owl Post Hoopla
HP Paper Pieced Quilted Wall Hanging
Slug & Jiggers Shrine
HP Love Tea Towels by sheepBlue
Biscuit Cutter Wind Chimes
Jelly Bowl Chandeliers
Patchwork Curtains
Free Motion Embroidery Owl Portrait
Stenciled Owl Pillow
Dumbledore Dream Catcher
Weasley Christmas Tree Skirt

I will allow people to IYP (Invite Your Partner) for this swap if they wish, but it is certainly not required.  If you wish to partner someone specific you must ask them, and then BOTH of you must send a PM expressing that wish.  Please remember that not everyone is able to swap when asked, or might not have the time/funds/desire to participate this round.  If they say no, please accept that 'no' gracefully.  You and your partner should discuss whether you want to stay on the Medium end of the crafting minimum, or if you both want to "go big" and craft something in the realm of a Large.

Please remember that communication is vital to a good swap experience! So in addition to talking with your partner, please keep in touch and let us know how you are doing within the swap thread! Per Craftster rules, you MUST post in the Swap Thread at least once, or risk being dropped from the swap.
