Winnie chases ghosts!

It would appear world traveler Winnie has traveled all the way to Queerditch Marsh! Alas the ghost she sought was no where in sight.

Winnie stayed a short time in Appleby Village and moved on as there are no shops or public houses in Appleby Village!

Shuntbumping & Spoiling

Yesterdays Shuntbumping went...well and not so well, depending on how you look at it. I won, yay, so that was the well part. I made toddler mitts that fit my hands, that is the not so well part. They do keep my wrists warm. My husband had the AC and fan running full blast yesterday and they warmed up my hands a little. I guess I'll throw them in the glove box for future driving purposes.

In another project bag, I have a gift for my spoilee!! I selected what to make over a week ago but just purchased the yarn a few days ago. I began the first stitches of her ____________, and really like the way it is turning out so far. I would post photos but I probably shouldn't since my spoilee will peek!

I also have narrowed down what to put in my spoilee's kit. I have a much better idea of what goes into the magic box!

Where is Miss Wartbobble now?

Looks like Miss Wartbobble will be stopping off on the Otago Peninsula to visit the only castle in New Zealand. Then she is going to Ottawa or somewhere near there for some maple syrup snacking.

Maple syrup is really the only thing that should ever go on pancakes by the way.

Miss Wartbobble sighting

Miss Wartbobble is in the London underground. Apparently she has had a terrible run in with the department head of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes.

Hmm would our Miss Wartbobble really teach underage wizards and witches how to apparate?? Do you believe this?

Yay Quidditch Season begins!

**Someone with the same craft as you (either those listed above or another one).
Loomatic enjoys cross stitch and embroidery just like me! Of course lately I have been neglecting my embroidery for tatting, crochet and knitting. I really must pull it out and have some fun!
I found a cute striped sock in Loomatic's project page. What a cute sock, and it makes me want to hurry and learn to make socks!

**Someone who was born in the same month.
Knyquol, aka Minerva Lovegood, was born in April. I can think of no better month to be born.
Knyquol has a very pretty hat called Sweet Potato Selbu in the project page. You should check it out. Very well crafted.

**Someone from a different country.
SwitchCleo is from England...way over that great big pond. And I bet no one knows this, but they have cute purple elephants in England! They really do, if you don't believe me check out SwitchCleo's project page.

**A new HSKS Quidditch player.
This is SherryHarrison, aka C Pettigrew's first time on HSKS Quidditch team. C Pettigrew has a cute dragon called Smudge! What a real cutie too.

**A player who has been in 3 or more HSKS swaps.
Kristo has been in HSKS swaps since HSKS 4. That is lots of swapping. And Kristo has a gorgeous knitted cap made from Noro Silk Garden.

**A player who has a bigger stash than you! (And if your stash is the biggest, proudly say so!)
Yarnguy716 is king of the stash. No seriously go look! And he made some clogs that look so darn comfy! I really need to get better at knitting so I can make me a pair.

**A player who both knits and crochets.
Ajkane the wonderful captain of the Wigtown Wanderer's knits and crochets. And did anyone know that Ajkane has an absolutely adorable Ram Patronus?

**Someone who has the same favorite color as you.
Lemonblondie loves blue! Right now sitting here, I really like blue. My color preferences drift between a few colors, but right now they are inline with Lemonblondie. Lemonblondie is cleverly playing with new stitches and making dishcloths at the same time. I love the color of the dishcloths too. What a nice collection.
