@SiakelA: What a neat idea with the keyring embroidery hoop! I think I might have to try that one day. Lovely baby blankets! I just can't get enough of them. Smiley

Adorable little bees!

And for some progress on my OWL:

Truth be told, I worked on it the couple of days following my proposal and haven't touched it again until tonight. I've had so many Christmas crafts to work on, and traveling. And I've forgotten how long cross stitch actually takes. I haven't decided of whether I want to abort and propose a different OWL or take months to finish this one. (I think maybe I liked the idea of owning this piece of art rather than making it myself. I'm not sure yet.) We shall see. Just thought I'd show an update. The skin tone is a little off, but oh well. I think it looks nice though. The first Mario is about 2-2.5 inches tall. Smiley

I took a break from last semester's craftalong because I was so busy, but I'm back  Cheesy
Challenge: Gemino
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Toddler Socks
Brief Description: We got a huge ice/snow storm this Christmas and were trapped for several days without power at my in-laws. I took lots of yarn and hooks and decided it was a good time to try my hand at sock making. These are crocheted with wool yarn.

Challenge: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Cherry Delight
Brief Description:  Every holiday since I can remember my grandma has made cherry delight.  It's a no bake cheesecake like dish and one of the only things I always make sure I have a second helping of, since it is my favorite.  As I've gotten older I don't always make it back to my grandparents' house for the holidays but whenever I am at my home (and not at my in-laws) I always make a batch.

Graham Cracker Crust
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup whipped topping
1 cup cherry pie filling

- In a bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, confectioners' sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom of an 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray.

- In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth; fold in whipped topping. Spread over crust. Spoon pie filling over top. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Study of Ancient Runes, Option 1 - Use an intricate charted design; you may create your own design for this project.
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:  It's Bigger on the Inside
Brief Description: I've been eyeing this shawl since the pattern came out in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue of Knitty and have decided to take the plunge and knit it up.  The pattern combines lacework on the top section of the shawl and little TARDISes (not sure of the plural of TARDIS) on the main body.  I'm hoping to have it completed in about four weeks, around the end of January.  I already have my yarn picked out and I'm finally feeling well (less plaguey) enough to begin!  Grin

CraftyLadyMJ:Cute bees! I love their little wings!

WhistleFish: Those Marios are great! I like to cross stitch but I have never attempted anything large. Good luck and patience on your journey to finish it.

FiberAlchemist: That shawl sounds awesome. I can't wait to see it!

Question: Aren't Ravenclaw's colors blue and bronze? I want to know because I've been asked to crochet a scarf in Ravenclaw's colors and I don't want to get it wrong.

In the books Ravenclaw's colors are blue and bronze, but in the films they are blue and grey.  You should check with the person who asked you to crochet the scarf to see what they would like.  Smiley

According to the books is what I was told. I couldn't get to my Harry Potter books to check so thank you very much!

You mean everyone doesn't keep one of them under their pillow? Oh. Well, I don't do that either.  Roll Eyes

Great projects everyone! I thought the holidays would keep things at a slow pace but WOW! was I wrong! Have to come back and check out all the projects a little more thoroughly. Happy New Year!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Charms
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: 5 strand french braid
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: If you need a good confusing charm this could be it.  I did a five strand french braid in my own hair. I'm pretty good at braiding my own hair, but using five strands it adds a few more steps.  You really have to think about the pattern of over-under-over-under because this gets tricky fast!  But in the end I finished, though it's going to take a lot more practice to get this charm down!  Tried again on my girly, but it wasn't too much better lol.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Holiday Recipe Challenge
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Indoor S'mores
Project Page Link (if available): http://www.recipe.com/indoor-smores-2/
Brief Description:  I love making this recipe.  I've made it for over ten years and people rave about it.  It's like a chocolatey-smore rice crispy treat.  Once I made these for my husband's scouts and the boys just went on and on about them.  I even had a mom call me that he was still talking about them at home!  So here's the recipe, maybe your crew will like them too.  As you can see mine got nibbled at before I remembered to take the picture.  Cheesy

Project Picture:

8   cups Golden Grahams cereal
5   cups miniature marshmallows (I always do heaping cups)
1 1/2   cups milk chocolate chips
1/4   cup light corn syrup
5   tablespoons butter or margarine
1   teaspoon vanilla
1 - 2   cup(s) more miniature marshmallows, if desired

Butter a 9X13 pan, set aside.  Pour cereal in large bowl.  Melt butter in saucepan on medium low heat.  Mix in syrup and 5 cups marshmallows until melted.  Add chocolate chips and vanilla, stir until color is consistent.  Pour over cereal and mix quickly, it sets up fast.  Toss in last amount of marshmallows leaving a few for the top later on.  Stir in, you won't cover all the cereal with the marshmallow mix so just get it covered well.  Then spoon cereal mix into the 9X13 pan using a buttered spoon back to push the mix down even.  Toss the last marshmallows over top.  Let rest to cool, cut, and serve.
*note this is messy and sticky.  Expect to work fast, and to soak your pans afterward.  Worth it though!
