Class/Challenge/House Pride:Hagrid's Trees-Lights
House:Hufflepuff
Project Name:A Flareon for Kataria
Brief Description: One of my best friends is named Kataria, and she's AWESOME!! She loves most of the same things I do, including Pokemon! So I made her a little Flareon out of clay, which I know she'll love. (We actually met because she fangirled over my Eeveelution shirt XD)

Happy New Year all!!  Cheesy

Sorry for the delay in posting, but the December Iron Chef Hogwarts Challenge is CLOSED. Thanks to FiberAlchemist for her COFFEE entry! Since I seem to miss someone every month lately, PLEASE let me know if I overlooked your entry!!

The secret ingredient for January is....


SPARKLING WINE!

Celebrate the new year with a Vanilla Sparkling Wine Pound Cake, or cheers it up with this Sparkling Pomegranate Punch, or even sparkle up dinner with Chicken with Fresh Peas and Sparkling Wine!*

*Sparkling grape juice, cider, or any other "sparkling" drink can be substituted. Grin

I have some post-holiday (and holiday break) crafts to post!!! Woohoo!

Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Angel
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Dad's Sign
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: I made this sign for my dad, who I definitely consider my personal "guardian angel." He liked it! Cheesy
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Lights
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Homemade Limoncello
Project Page Link: I used this recipe.
Brief Description: Inspired by Mistress Jennie's awesome limoncello xmas gifts, I decided to make a batch of my own for all the Aunts and Uncles on my list. Everyone I gave a bottle to certainly "lit" up with joy. Smiley
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Icicles
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Rolled Holiday Sugar Cookies
Project Page Link: Recipe
Brief Description: Every year at xmas time, kiddo and I make sugar cookies. This year, I tried a new recipe, and they came out great! The kitchen aid sure got a lot of use this past December!
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Fake Snow
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Mandala Tote Bags
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: For these bags, I started with purchased bags from the craft store. On each one, I drew a different Mandala with a fabric marker.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Candles
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Kiddo Ornaments
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Each year, I make tree ornaments that feature my son in some way. Each grandparent receives one and always say how much they love seeing what the year's ornament will be. They always have a happy glow when they open it. This year's ornament featured kiddo's pink hair and love of Pokemon.
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Baubles
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Tea-dyed and painted coil rope bowl
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Made for one of my favorite aunts, this bowl is cotton clothesline stitched into a bowl, tea-dyed and then painted mandala style. Inspired by Alisa Burke's online fabric bowl class, this craft reflects my own likes and developing style, but was given away with love. Smiley
Project Picture:



Challenge: Hagrid's 12 Christmas Trees: Bells
House: Gryffindor!
Project Name: Fabric wrapped coil rope bowls
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: Using some pretty awesome fabrics from my stash, I made several smaller rope bowls as gifts as well. The fabric makes these bowls fun to look at, and the stitching and coils make them fun to touch and feel. There is a second tea-dyed bowl thrown in this pic as well - bonus, the cotton clothesline in the tea-dyed bowls smelled like a big, warm sweater. Wink
Project Picture:



AND...dun, dun, dun......FINALLY, I present my completed NEWT:

****COMPLETED NEWT****
NEWT Subject: Arithmancy
House: Gryffindor
Project Name: Quilting by Numbers
Project Page Link: N/A
Brief Description: The final dimensions for this quilt are (roughly) 72" x 42". Not quite by originally proposed calculations, but it will do. I also altered the 9-patch pattern to something that suited my available material, current quilting ability, and patience level. I went with a "strip" design, alternating t-shirt squares and navy blue fabric. Lots of measuring and calculating ensured that even though I changed the plan as I went, the project still came out (relatively) quilt-shaped. A yellow binding around the whole thing finished it off.
Project Pictures:



Close up just because:



Kiddo loves it.

Now to contemplate my next NEWT....and work on that darn OWL!

Abbeeroad, I feel like such a lazy girl.  I had a recipe all picked out, and I had even pulled out all the ingredients to make Espresso Pumpkin Muffins Saturday morning.  I was all 'yeah, I'll totally get this one in at the last minute!'.  Then I discovered I didn't have eggs, and was unwilling to go to the store on NYE.  I might make them anyways tomorrow morning, since the ingredients are still out, sitting on my counter.

And you've been busy!  I love the mandala bags, the tiny limoncellos and the awesome bowls.  AND you finished a quilt!  Way to go starting off the New Year like a boss!

Meanwhile, I just came back from the doctor's office.  My little cold from before Christmas has turned into pneumonia.   Tongue Tongue Tongue  I guess I'm going to try to spend some serious time on the couch this week, doing nothing more strenuous than crocheting and watching Netflix.  I guess there's a bright side to everything!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Care of Magical Creatures ( CoMC )
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: 2 Custom Orifice Hooks
Brief Description: The spinning wheel I've been working on has a very small orifice.  A standard orifice hook just won't fit, so I made two custom orifice hooks to use with it.  I made two because orifice hooks are one of those things fairies love to walk off with so when one gets misplaced there's a second so the lady can keep spinning.  Smiley  I made them from two vintage spoons I found on a thrift jaunt in a local town.
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Divination Class
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Spinning Wheel Brought Back to Life
Brief Description: Last January a friend asked me to take a look at a friend's spinning wheel.  I told her no, because I KNEW I would not be able to get it done in a timely manner because the farm keeps me too busy.  Then she asked again.  And again. And again and again and again and again and again until she wore me down and I said I'd look at it just to get her to stop asking me.  The nice lady the wheel belonged to said if I fixed her wheel, she had a second wheel that I could have to fix up for my friend's daughter, and since I owe my friend a huge debt I brought all the pieces home to get working on it.  Which I managed to do in small sleep deprived bursts over the past year.  Well, I finally managed to get it finished.  I'd never touched a double drive spinning wheel before.  I'm in love.  Her antique wheel, with its tiny lace orifice, makes my professionally built, single drive, spinning wheel look like a piece of garbage.  No screws to work out while spinning.  No screw to come loose and let the treddle bar flop off.  Just nice, smooth, gentle spinning with a muted, rythmic clack.  Like knitting needles, or loom heddles.  Music. 
Project Picture:


Class/Challenge/House Pride: Floo Powder: Tree House
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Project Bag
Brief Description: Project bags are AWESOME!!!!  They are perfect for throwing yarn, toys, or what not into and taking off, all independent like, into the great wide world!!!!  I sewed this project bag for a friend of a friend's daughter who likes bright colors to go along with the spinning wheel I just rebuilt for her.  It has brightly colored Llamas in hats.  It holds a TON of roving, bats, misc fiber, with an inside pocket to hold bits and bobs, and a boxed bottom so it stands up on its own.  My FIRST ever project bag!!!!! Smiley

I love the fabrics yoh choose for the project bag!

Ok - so I realise that they'd a new flip challenge due today, but I'm going to hang fire for an extra week I think - since it's been the holidays it'll give everyone a chance to catch up, post work, finish bits off etc. So I'll post a new challenge next Tuesday instead Smiley
