I've been thinking about OWLS and NEWTS for a while now and I think I have made my decision.  I've chosen an OWL that can be worked on in front of the television (I've become quite fond of muggle television and movies) and a NEWT that will keep me tethered to the sewing machine.  I think this will make for a nice combination of projects.

OWL Subject & Option(if available): Transfiguration, Option 1
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Wind Chime Afghan
Brief Description: Being a long time knitter, crochet has always intrigued me.  I've learned some basic stitches over the years but have never attempted a large scale project... until now!!  I've amassed a large quantity of yarn and will attempt simultaneous vanishing and conjuring spells to make a colorful striped afghan.  My goal is to complete it in three weeks with a finishing date of April 27.  Here is a pic of my yarn stockpile

NEWT Subject: Charms
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Tres Chic Quilt
Brief Description: I taught myself to quilt about three years ago, since then I've made many quilts but have always strayed away of anything with curved seams.  They have always seemed so confusing to me (I mean how are you really supposed to get those seams to line up!!!), so I've decided to break out my wand, charms textbook, and sewing machine to master the confundus charm and make some great curved blocks.  The pattern I'm using is from the March/April issue of Quilty Magazine; but instead of black and white I've purchased Kona white and Kona tangerine to make my quilt.  I'm planning on a tentative completion date of May 11.

Class: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name:Tray organised (^_^)
Project Page Link (if available): You can find all kinds of stuff like this on Pinterest.  I just did my own thing.
Brief Description: This required the addition of 2 parts - the tray (a Dollar Store cookie tray, which I altered with scrapbooking papers and some pinstriping tape we happened to have lying around), and magnets.  I made day of the week magnets to go down the side, and then magnets for each activity we might encounter during the day - soccer for youngest, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Venture Crew, Dh and my soccer, older 2 working, & martial arts.  I can make a lineup on each day showing what to expect at a glance so if other things crop up I can better remember what's do-able, and what's not.  For the activity magnets, I printed out images, stuck epoxy dots over them, cut them out, then glued them to magnets.  For the days of the week, I simply stuck a sticker to scrapbook paper, cut it out, and Mod Podged it to the back of a flat glass stone, then glued a magnet to it.

Class: Care of Magical Creatures
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name:
Project Page Link (if available):http://www.craftjr.com/garden-craft-plant-markers-free-pattern-download/
Brief Description: These garden markers are very bowtruckle-y indeed!  In fact, I nearly got bitten when I was harvesting the twigs for these.  I cut them from dead branches, but the 'truckles got a bit snippy anyway (I think I was just too close to their tree), and I had to toss them some honey roasted peanuts to placate them.  (They will eat honey roasted peanuts in lieu of wood lice in a pinch.)  The beads are my own addition, because why not? Cheesy

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Potions
Project Name: lace coffee sleeve
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: while I was brewing Amortentia I was faced with the overwhelming scent of coffee so I decided to whip something up for my next visit to my local coffee shop. Thus this new lace knitted coffee sleeve was born so now I won't burn my hand as I immerse my self in my one true love coffee.

Challenge: Dentention with McGonnagal - Gryff Xtra crdits: Alchemy Use a material or tool that starts with any letter in NICOLAS FLAMEL: F for Fabric! Cheesy
House: Gryffindor
Project name: pocket belt for ME!
desc: I've jumped on the occasion to make something for myself and tried my hand at an utility belt. I think I will use it a lot since I never wear anything that has pockets and I hate purses!!

This is the back and one side. The kids helped with the eyelet, they love hammering! Tongue
Sorry no action shoots... I was in pyj and all, and with the belly it doesn't look that pretty....

Challenge: Arithmancy/ Gryff Xtra crdits: Apparition Use a destination, determination, or deliberation in your craft.
House: Gryffindor
Project name: Invites for my in-laws 25th aniversary Smiley
desc: I designed on the computer the back and the front of those invite to send to my guy's huge family. He got both design printed at school and I cut them all even tonight. The back hold the information as to where/when/how much and the rsvp address. Smiley
I'm using destination in this craft since they will all be mailed Cheesy!

edit: I thought you might like to know what's written on it, you non-french people:
We are pleased to inform you that after 25 years of mariage, France & Serge are still crazy in love Cheesy


I love the pattern you chose, Fiber! And those colors... it's going to be pretty Cheesy

Moonflame, I LOVE the twigs! Very nice and unique design Smiley

lovely cozy travelgirl Smiley I have another hot beverage smell in my amormentia potion, so it would fit me too Smiley

Congrats Chughes, very well worth it! those shoes were amazing!

Great work!
And oh, what a beautiful pattern !!

That's a hint - asking where you got the pattern from.
(Although I am quite serious about your knitting being good.)

Please ... where can I find the pattern?
(Or, if it's not already online somewhere, you are going to write it out for me and send it to me - right?)

Sigh - perhaps I should just find a stitch collection and make up one of my own?

Travelgirl, that coffee sleeve is sooooo pretty!  It must feel cosy in your hands, too. Smiley

MamanTattoo, your pocket belt is a great idea!  I hate carrying a purse, too, and never do.  I love how you mixed the fonts on the invites.  They look amazing!
