Class/Challenge: Headmistress - Hogwarts Castle
House: Gryffindor
Project Name & Page Link: Tom Riddles Diary Ornament

Brief Description: These ornaments have been 4 or 5 years in the making!  I had the books painted, but not lettered.  I had the fangs and the bails waiting in my stash, but not assembled.  The sad news of the loss of Craftster and the subsequent effort to raise funds to build us a new home, gave me the push I needed to finish them.  I loved the Harry Potter books as soon as I first read them, and I have always loved crafting.  But I never would have gone looking for a place like this little Craftalong.  In fact, I tried to resist pinkleo's efforts to get me to join all those years ago!  But I'm so glad she convinced me, because it has given me immeasurable inspiration and joy over these 7+ years.  It has given me purpose and fun to keep it going.  And it has given me dear friends who have stood by me through some truly difficult times.  It has been every bit as magical a place as Hogwarts was for Harry.  Thank you all for your companionship on this journey.

Slipping in a project or two under the wire...

Class/Challenge: Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Brownie Socks
Brief Description: Socks don't really fit the impractical part of the prompt, but when you think about it knitting really is just a bunch of little loops together.

These poor little ornaments have been in process for 4 or 5 years.  YEARS!  Materials gathered, partially crafted, but just never finished.  The Garage Sale was the kick in the butt I needed to put the items all together and finish them, and I'm grateful for it. 

The diary is made of a blank wooden book, that I painted, then hand lettered on the front.  The Basilisk Fang is made with a stone fang shaped pendant, painted with a bit of 'diary blood'.  Cheesy 

Thank you all for the years of joy and inspiration I have found here.

I will be hopping on the project dump bandwagon along with ErinAquaheat and Audania1.

Class/Challenge: Arithmancy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: I created this gray Totoro plush for Audania1's youngest daughter for the 12 Days of Christmas swap. The pattern is by CholyKnight, and I believe it's free on her website.

Class/Challenge: Astronomy
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: This owl detailed shawl was knit up using 100% wool yarn, using bamboo needles.

Class/Challenge: DADA
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: This year for my gaming group's Secret Santa I drew my husbands name. After struggling to come up with a good gift idea I decided to paint his gaming miniature.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge: Divination
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: I used scissors and a rotary cutter to create all the small squares and triangles needed to make this Christmas table runner.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge: Flying
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: Using the skill of knitting I created a series of interlocking loops to result in a set of beaded fingerless mitts, beads were added to the fan section of the pattern for extra sparkle.

Class/Challenge: Headmistress Challenge: Hogwarts Castle
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: Getting this post together had been bittersweet for me. On one hand I'm happy to be sharing the work I have accomplished over the past month or so; but I know it very well may be the last post I make on Craftster. This site has given me the chance to try new crafts and techniques I never would have; and it's also given me the courage to share my work and be proud of this things I have made. This project is something I'm very proud of because I'm not great at crochet, and there were times I had to rip back many rows. Heck I had to make the jacket twice because the first one was too small. But I'm glad I stuck it out and I'm really happy with my work.

Class/Challenge: Herbology
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: I also made these to send along to Audania1, they are flannel bowl cozies so you can comfortably hold a hot bowl of soup or pasta on a chilly night.

Class/Challenge: Holiday Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Trees - Tinsel
Project Description: This felt sugar cookie garland was decorated with many sparkly seed beads to add color and shine!
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge: Potions
House: Ravenclaw
Project Description: To match the fingerless mitts I sent to Audania1 I made a matching "Dickensian" inspired cowl. It uses many repeated increases to grow in size from the top to the bottom.
Project Picture:

Class/Challenge: SOAR
Project Description: For Audania1's eldest daughter I made a Schuyler sisters tee shirt. I found an image of the silhouette of the sisters in their famous pose and then used text to add the word "WORK" across their skirts. I used vinyl in th main color of each dress and layered it all together.

Due to Craftster closing tonight, I wanted to post one last ATC. This was made for the November Ongoing 2019 swap. He looked like he was reaching out for a hug, so I added the lyrics from the Clem Snide song "Find Love".

I've definitely found love here on Craftster and I hope that I've given enough of it away as well. Thanks for being so amazing, fellow crafters. You've inspired, uplifted, and helped me throughout the past decade. May the next adventure be as good as the last!
