Seeuudee, love your mermaid tail! How cool that we've both been working on the same thing but different designs Smiley I love your frilly flipper!

Jennie - that sign is fab, I love the colours, and the worrying you choose! I couldn't march here in London because I was working (tried to book it off but wasn't allowed as someone else already had) - but I really enjoyed seeing all the signs the next day, they had been tucked into the railings a few places, so you could walk around reading them Cheesy

~*OWL PROPOSAL HEADER*~
OWL Subject: Defense Against Dark Arts (Option 2)
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dean's Quilt
Brief Description: Snape's patronus echoes the Potter family's in that it is a deer.  I'm making a baby quilt for a distant relative, and the fabric that "sparked" all the others for this quilt features this animal.  The quilt is made for a baby who we already know will have health problems when he's born, so a little extra patronus protection in the quilt would not be amiss.

NEWT Subject: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Personal Progress Book Holders
Project Page Link (if available): -
Brief Description: I used my arithmancy knowledge to take much amounts of fabric, ribbons, interfacing, and made them into 10+ book holders.  These are for the local church group that has progress books for the young women to do service and talent activities.  This will give them a place to keep their books and things nice.  Even a spot for a pen!  Used this pattern: http://www.cranialhiccups.com/2012/01/young-women-personal-progress-book-holders.html 
My girls then saw how fun the book holders were and wanted their own.  So instead of 10 books, I made 12.  My girls got fun jewel buttons on front to give an extra sparkle, and were especially excited to choose their own fabrics.  My oldest already had one, but was sad her fabrics were boring.

That bracelet is stunning, I love the colours. And the book covers are so pretty.

Noodle-bug, I smiled when I saw yours. There are so many patterns around, but I did love that tail. Tempted to make myself one, but it took me forever to do a child size one, not sure I have the sticking power!


seeuudee, delightful items.  What are sloes?  I have never heard of them.


Sloes are in the plum and damson family. The tree is the Blackthorn. And the thorns are sharp! They are about the size of blueberries but are inedible raw, really sour. They should be picked after the first frost, but they never last on the tree that long, so I picked them as soon as they were ripe and gave them a few days in the freezer. I believe it is not quite as good, but a close second.

Oh my gosh! All of these hats are amazing! I didn't get to march, but my sister in law did and she said it was one of the most amazing and humbling things she's ever done in her life. I have so much respect for all of you who were there as well as those of us there in spirit!

I am in love with the mermaid tails!

And that Sloe gin looks fabulous. I wish we had them here! Maybe I can order a tree.... I do have a damson plum tree. Maybe that would make yummy gin?

That deer stocking is too sweet!

Very good water transformation!

Those progress book holders are lovely! I ought to make one for myself and the girlies. Maybe I would be a little more organized?

I love the colors in that bracelet!



I will have a mini project drop later today but I wanted to get on really quick to admire all of your lovely crafts. Looking lovely, ladies!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: January Detention
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Flowers in January
Project Link: Huh? and then http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ying-hua-shawl
Brief Description: I started this shawl about a year and a half ago. So long ago, in fact, that I couldnt find the pattern I was using before when I finally picked the project up again a month ago! I went through my Revelry and found an edging that I liked and kind of fudged it so it would fit the dimensions of the main part of the shawl that I was happy with size-wise.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: a Pinch of Floo Powder: Corner Shop!
SPEW:
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Clove Apple Jam
Project Link: http://tiaskitchen.com/apple-jam-cinnamon-pectin-free/
Brief Description: I made this deliciousness using simple ingredients and a ton of apples I picked up at Apple Hill last week. We went out to find snow but came home with apples. 40lbs. of apples for only $15!! What a deal! I couldnt pass it up, so Ive been making APPLE EVERYTHING!! I wanted to use something without pectin and see how it went. I discovered that it didnt want to jam very well and I feel it became more of a butter. Still delicious!! And I can tell you that apple jam/butter on toast makes for a VERY enjoyable free time user. Smiley

Yes, damsons do make a good fruit gin and the recipe would be the same, but I would use less sugar, as damsons start off sweeter. I actually started with less sugar, but about a month in tried it and added some simple sugar syrup at that point. I would probably halve the sugar in the sloe recipe and give it a little taste after a month or so, adding more if needed.

It also depends on the gin you choose. I used a Dry London Gin, so my starting point was very dry. If you started with a different gin, you would likely need less sugar, even for sloe gin.

Lastly, it comes down to personal taste. Some shop bought sloe gins are very sweet, almost syrupy, which are usually too sweet for me.

The other fruit gin I want to have a go at is Gin Cherry - I love anything cherry, so definitely on the cards to give this one a go Smiley

A Mini Update as opposed to my usual massive project dump.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Defense Against Dark Arts
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Best Cookies Ever!
Recipe: http://bit.ly/2kp7CeU
Brief Description:  I work at one of our campus libraries supervising the student workers, and always make them cookies at the beginning of the semester as a sort of welcome back gesture and to remind myself that I do really enjoy them, even if the first few weeks of classes makes you want to tear out your hair with all their last minute schedule changes. As usual, I used my favorite recipe for the base and just substitute whatever sort of goodies I have on hand for the peanut butter chips.  This time around I reduced the amount of butter and used mint chips, and I have to say they are some of the tastiest things I've ever made.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' Challenge - Philosopher's Stone
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Basket o' Dresses
Brief Description: I had time for a massive sewing session last weekend, and decided to make a giant batch of doll dresses.  I usually just make them in ones and twosies, so this was a much bigger undertaking than usual, but I did kind of enjoy the assembly line process. (There are two yellow dresses there that were used for another prompt, but even taking those out of the equation it was still an 8 hour undertaking)
