I love your baby sets and quilts Jennie, the colour schemes are gorgeous


Class,: charms
SPEW: reinstall reading volunteers
House : ravenclaw
Project: wonder words
One of the children I volunteer reading with is EAL (English as an additional language) so although she is very bright her limited vocabulary holds her back. I made up this game to revise new words we come across - if she can use the word in a sentence without reading the definition on the back she gets a point Smiley I made up about 30 cards with words we've already looked at, plus the box - I'll add more words as we come across them in our reading together - I'm also thinking I might turn this into a part of a bigger game but I haven't worked that idea out yet. Hopefully this craft will make a lot of noise as we discuss words and make up example sentences


Challenge: Detention November
House: ravenclaw
Project: smashbook
I have been meaning to start a new smashbook for a few months, since my old one is full. I finally got around it it. I cut a hole in the cover to display this swatch of knitted up handspun yarn on the front, and as I'd collected a fair few bits to go inside I could even finish the first few pages, including making pockets to keep mail from my penpal (my cousin's 10 year old son! He's fab!)


Class: transfiguration
House: ravenclaw
Project: button replacement
My hufflepuff friend was uncharacteristically grumpy the other day, because (as she explained) all the buttons had come off her coat so she needed to buy a new one! Well, you imagine my response to that! I sent her off to buy buttons, she chose all purposefully miss-matched ones, so when I sewed them on not only did she save money and recycle, but she got a unique personal improvement to her old one too!

There's a anew Floo challenge up!

This week we are in...
Mongolia
The Mongolian people are nearly all nomadic, moving with their herds - yak, sheep, camels, goats and most importantly horses. In traditional belief, the first foal born of the year is a sacred animal and has a blue scarf tied around it's neck - it is never ridden and is seen to represent the strength of the year's new borns.
For this challenge please make a blue gift for a person, animal or plant that you love and hold precious.

noodle, I love those words. clever!


Class,: headmistress November
House : ravenclaw
Project: Another sweater quilt.
Project link https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=453750.0 There are some tips to make one of these here.
Description I actually love recycling, these were a bunch of jumpers aka sweaters, from the thrift store aka charity shop. I needed a nice warm blanket for my little kinda chilly house, So I made this. I have been carting the squares around for a while now, but I finally finished it. it is backed with a thrifted fleecy blanket and the whole lot tied together, with a lot of hand stitching to fix the binding.

Challenge: Ironchef Nov
House: ravenclaw
Project: veg n lentil soup
Soup served with (shop brought) honey and fig bread, plus a side salad.
Honey isn't strictly speaking vegan, but I don't really like it so I haven't bothered finding an alternative, and when I saw this bread I knew that Tom would love it with soup, so I decided to bed the rules a little (he never complains about having to veganise for me, so I figure I can compromise for him too sometimes)

soup recipe:
wash & Dice an onion, 3 carrots, a potato, 9/10 stalks of celery. whizz in a frying pan for a couple of mins with a bit of oil.
rinse 150g red lentils. stick lentils & veg in a saucepan with a litre a half of water. throw in some parsley, some cumin, a dash of lee & perins sauce, a blob of marmite and a generous pinch of nutritional yeast. simmer for 30 mins with lid on.
mash up everything a bit with a potato masher (extent of mashing depends on how chunky you like soup and how much arm effort your willing to give it. I go for minimal mashing). add 100g of puy lentils. simmer with lid on for a further 20 mins, then take lid off to reduce more if you want a less liquid soup (I tend to blast it for a couple of mins right at the end, since i like really solid soups). serve.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: The Shreking Shack
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Baby boy knits
Project Page Link (if available): https://youtu.be/KJr2iYT43YA
Brief Description: TONS of people knit.  But no one *here* "European" knits. My mother, Netchez, European knits. Her mother European knitted.  Mom taught ME to European knit.  Everywhere we go people want us to teach THEM how to knit like us, because it's so much faster and easier on the hands.  (And we don't call it European knitting.  We just call it *knitting*.  Rofl)   I knitted this little blue set of hat, mitts, and leg warmers using the European style.  Btw, that's not how you hold your yarn.  Please ignore her comment about "conventional".  If it wasn't, or hadn't been, the "conventional style" SOME WHERE it wouldn't have lasted long enough to be the style I was taught.  *cringe*

Brief Description: I whipped up a few bath product recipes for a friend's birthday, and this one is certainly my favorite.  Big huge, happy, highly scented bath bombs.  I used an apple & rose scent oil, and molded them in my silicone cupcake molds, before tying them up in plastic bags with yarn to match the gift basket I made her.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Head. Puking pastilles challenge #1
SPEW: volunteering with my refugee group
House: ravenclaw
Project Name: Waldof stars
Project Page Link (if available):
Brief Description: The refugees in the group that I work with are in what we call direct provision, they are in mobile homes, in a purpose built area, with a community centre, kitchen etc and so I thought a craft that would allow them to brighten up their (and my) living spaces coming  up to christmas. These waldorf stars are not simple to make, but not too difficult, they require a bit of concentration, so great and therapeutic when you're in need of distraction. We used kite paper (I think this is also called glassine paper) it is translucent and comes already cut into squares. There are a ton of patterns online. They look nothing when you are making them, it is only when you put them in the window and the light shines through, that they look magic. You can use tissue paper, it is just not as strong and the colours don't last as long. We made all these. I made a white and a yellow one.

and then I brought them back to work to decorate my office window
