noodle-bug  Shocked  All that boat work is amazing!  Narrowboats are seriously cool - my first introduction to them was in His Dark Materials.  Also the bright art!
Ant Bee Your stories gave me a chuckle, but I love the dryer balls!  I made some ages ago but need to make more, and buy some EO to drip into them.
Mistress Jennie  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy that t-shirt is awesome and hilarious

For me:

Challenge: Floo - Morocco
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Nebula Cable hat

One of my birthday presents was money to buy yarn at a recent fibre festival.  I was able to get my hands on a skein of Fairy Farts yarn, which is a yarn that has a small section dyed bright colours against a semi-solid background.  This leaves little bursts of colour all over the piece.  The Gregory Hat on Ravelry has gorgeous repeating geometric cables, and was perfect to use this with yarn, although it took some number finagling because at the given 120 st cast on the yarn pooled in precise columns - not the look I wanted!  I added a faux fur pompom taken off a key ring from Michaels.

Challenge: Iron Chef - Corn
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Fresh tomato salsa

To quote Barbossa, this is more guidelines than actual rules (or recipes).  I diced about 8 large Roma tomatoes, one medium white onion, and added 1/2 can corn (non-creamed variety).  Then, all to taste, I splashed in a glug of olive oil, a good amount of red wine vinegar, a few shakes of salt and pepper, and a pretty decent amount of cumin and a small amount of coriander (ground coriander seed for the Brits, not leaves).  I don't like cilantro (aka fresh coriander) because it tastes like soap to me, so I left it out.  Definitely add some in chopped if you like it!  You can also add some black beans for protein.  Stir and serve with tortilla chips, I like the Scoopables kind shaped like wee bowls.

Big Barda is a DC hero, and one of my favorites, so I came up with an 8-bit blanket pattern I could wear like a cape. You know, like you do.

437 squares and so much seaming.

Sold to greybird - yellow yarn and fabric twine

Thanks for the claim!  I'm so glad that yarn is going to a good home - I love it, but have not for the life of me been able to figure out something to do with it. 

If anybody else would be interested in fabric twine, let me know.  I keep the strips for it next to my couch and it's my TV-watching craft. Smiley

I've received the most amazing swap package from ByWilma!

First up is this amazing hoop! I'm a crazy cat lady so this is pretty much perfect for me - I love the spider webs in the background too!

Next up is this cute little bat cupcake pin - I love wearing pins and I'm really looking forward to wearing this over Halloween Smiley

Speaking of pins, I got this amazing cardi/collar clip - I put it on as soon as I got it, because it's so amazing!

Next is this creepy doll face set, which is so great! On Halloween I usually have dinner out with a bunch of friends dressed in theme. I'm going to wear these to dinner this year Cheesy

Finally, this wee dolls hand in a bottle which is so creepy and fun, I think I might turn it into a necklace!

Thanks so much for a wonderful package ByWilma Cheesy
