Periwinkle, the owl, brought me a package

My kit arrived! It is fabulous.

I was told to follow the spiders, so that is what I did.

There was a card and silly Poppy apologized for one of my wonderful gifts. She didn't think it was good enough since it was only her second knitted project. I love it though!
Here is some yarn she sent so I could make a pleated purse.
And of course yarn for Dobby
I must be a true Gryffindor since I found the sword of Gryffindor (a niddy noddy)
And Baby Fawkes! How cute is that. He has some cute stitch markers too!
And here is an iPad pouch that Poppy wasn't sure I would like, but look at the colors. I love it!
Some roving that I can dye! How cool is that?
And I really love this gift that came direct from Tom Riddle--his diary of course and nagini! I'll never lose my place in a book again.
There are two adorable patterns. Baby booties an a very cute cap. My husband says he can't wait to see how the cap turns out.
And Mrs. Weasley sent me some Toffifee! Can't wait to taste it, but I had fudge when I was out earlier today so it has to wait until tomorrow.

And even more hand made gifts! Moaning Myrtle's bath kit--a nice smelling bar of soap, a wash towel, and a soap bag. I love it! And there is some wonderful smelling tea.
Here is my wonderful kit--everything all at once

Thank you very much, Poppy Pluot! Periwinkle will rest in the owlery and then leave for home tomorrow.

Calling all owls!

I need an owl to delivery a pretty parcel. Penelope's package is all packed up and ready to fly via owl to Wyoming.

I think Penelope will like what she finds when she opens the package, at least I hope she will. I've had fun making things to put in there!

On another note, I believe I'm going to win Nanowrimo again this year! Yay for me!
Last December 1, the day after winning Nanowrimo 2009, I decided to continue writing 500 words a day for an entire year. I have really enjoyed writing my 500 words a day and have not skipped one day, not even when I had to have a couple of minor surgeries. I'm going to have to find a way to celebrate on Dec. 1.

Snickerdoodle Basket Weaving!

Well, I'm happy to report that since the first class of beginner basket weaving filled so fast at the LYS, that they scheduled a new one. My mom and I were both able to get into the class. We went last night, and the class ran over and hour just so everyone could be sure to go home with a completed basket. Jill, our instructor, was real sweet to stay so long and be so patient with all the new weavers.

I learned so much, and my thumbs are still sore from pulling and tucking and weaving all those reeds. I had so much fun though, that I spent hours today researching where to get a good deal on more basket weaving supplies. My research paid off, and I'll be calling and placing my order tomorrow. Oct 30, I'll try to get together with my mother and make another basket.

My plan is to make one or two more of these neat little baskets, and then try my hand at a larger basket to put by a changing table to hold diapers and baby clothes in easy reach. Anyway, that is the plan. I'll see how I do. It took four hours with an instructor at our elbow to make this basket. I'm hoping it doesn't take too much longer than that to make another basket.

My beautiful creation was made with a moss green reed, while my mother used a pretty purple reed. I can't wait to try to make another.

The 5 Things

What five things would I bring if I were running away, going into hiding or camping.

If I had answered this a few days ago I would have said:

1) Kleenex
2) Medicine--cough meds, stuffy head meds, fever reducer meds, pain meds, throat lozenges
3) More kleenex
4) Warm blanket for when I was freezing cold, and that I could kick off when fever sweating
5) Pillow

Actually I feel as if I have been in hiding for the past week, and those are the items I had with me. I feel like I should get a prize for answering correctly. Ha!

If I was going away when not ill, then the answers would be different indeed. For going camping:

1) Husband
2) Dog
3) Sonic Screwdriver--I learned from the Doctor! (See below for info about the sonic screwdriver*)
4) Mary Poppins bottomless carpet bag--you can find EVERYTHING in there
5) Crafting survival kit (Kit includes: Crochet hook, knitting needles, tatting shuttles, yarn, thread, scissors and now newly improved with a drop spindle and roving!)

If I were going to run away just scratch out number 1 above....hmmm ok scratch out number 1 and 2! hahahahaha

*For all you Doctor Who fans, from the Doctor Dances:
Capt. Jack: This can work as a sonic blaster, a sonic canon, and a sonic disrupter. Doc what you got?
Doctor: I've got a sonic uh..well never mind.
Capt. Jack: What?
Doctor: It is sonic let's leave it at that.
Capt. Jack: Disrupter, canon what?
Doctor: It is sonic, totally sonic.
Capt. Jack: A sonic what?!
Doctor: Screwdriver.
Rose: Going down! Doctor are you ok?
Doctor: Could have used a warning.
Rose: There's no gratitude.
Capt. Jack: Who has a sonic screwdriver?
Doctor: I do.
Capt. Jack: Who looks at a screwdriver and thinks, "ooo this could be a little more sonic."
Doctor: You've never been bored?
Rose: There's got to be lights.
Doctor: Never had a long night? Never had a lot of cabinets to put up?
Patients: Mummy
Capt. Jack: Door. [Trying to open door with his sonic gadget] Dammit it is these special features they really drain the battery. I was going to send for another one, but somebody's got to blow up the factory! [Looks at the Doctor]
Rose: Oh, I know! The first day we met he blew my job up.
Doctor: Ok, that door should hold it for a bit.
Capt. Jack: The door? The wall didn't stop it.
Doctor: Well it has to find us first. Come on we're not done yet. Assets. Assets.
Capt. Jack: Well I have a banana, and in a pinch you could put up some shelves.

Ginger, the owl, flew up with my kit!

Yes it is finally here! My lovely Sirius Black kit from Megaera Black. Thank you so much for these lovely things! As you can see above, some of the items were sent through the Floo Network.

When I opened the box, it was so full of packages, I just couldn't count them all!

And here is all the loot unwrapped! What a haul! Here is a list of everything in the photo:
2 Balls of Nightfall Cotlin, 2 balls of Cedar Cotlin
2 Balls of Coto Canapone (Cotton/Hemp blend)
Sock Monkey
Book with photo of Sirius Black's motorcycle. Yes! The same bike that Hagrid borrowed to fly Harry Potter around.

Pattern for an adorable Pete, the puppy boy. This came in a neat envelope that can be reused yay!
And last, I will mention that the 2 balls of Cedar Cotlin is really a magic ball of Cedar that contains lots of goodies!! I'll get to the list of all the surprises my magic ball contained in a moment. Now for more photos!

These are the handmade items: Sock Monkey, 2 paw print cloths, Sirius Black motorcycle book, and of course Sirius Black Tumbler! Can't go anywhere without that!

This is all my yarn! Oh I love this yarn!

A good warning for Hogwart's students); a Ravelry Bob lapel pin; a cute button with a girl holding her hand out for a dove to land on.

Whew that was lots of items! A wonderful Sirius Black kit! Thank you so much! This has been a really wonderful, and fun swap.

Embroidering my own designs

I've been downloading different software to use to make my own embroidery designs. I finally settled on one. These are the first attempts I made using a photo to embroider and some of my husband's art to embroider. I know there are flaws, but that means I know what I need to learn. And sadly, my thread palette is really small at the moment. I hope to change that slowly over time.

This is a robot my husband drew. There is a slight problem with the mouth. After I stitched this up, I learned how to change the order in which it stitches things, and I'm pretty sure that will help on my next attempt.

This is my dog! She doesn't really have maroon ears of course, but I used that as part of the shadow colors since my thread palette is kind of limited right now.

I really really love my new embroidery/sewing machine! I'm going to make some patches of my parrots to sew on various things as well.


Go go Gryffindor!!! We won the Quidditch match against Slytherin today. I was the Keeper for Gryffindor, but could not show up on time. I cast a Keeper Charm over the pitch and miraculously no goals were scored even though I was not there. The snitch was found before I arrived. I was a little sad that I missed the game, glad that we won, and happy that my Keeper Charm worked so well!

NEW sewing/embroidery machine!!!

OMG So excited. I got a Baby Lock Ellure Plus!

These are the first couple of designs I did. I cannot post the cute item I made today because it still has to go to Dragonsinger, but it is really cute!

Arithmancy Homework

Arithmancy homework this week was to complete three sudoku puzzles to discover the letters of a word scramble. I love sudoku. The sudoku didn't give me any trouble, but to be honest, Puzzle 2 word scramble did. *hanging head in shame* It was so obvious once I worked it out.

Puzzle 1 Letters: oydbb
Puzzle 1 = Dobby

Puzzle 2 Letters: ratrhoytepr
Puzzle 2 = Harry Potter

Puzzle 3 Letters: gdsehoha
Puzzle 3 = Hogs Head

A perfect kit for Dragonsinger

Well I finally sat down and thought out all the finishing touches I want to do for the kit for Dragonsinger. I'm going to go out hopefully on Tuesday and buy the last couple little extras I need. I have an order in for the yarn. It should arrive soon. And I'm spending today and tomorrow finishing up the handmade gift. I think it is going to be cute! At least I hope so.

As far as patterns are concerned. I'm very happy with my choice and I think Dragonsinger will like it as well.

In less than 2 weeks a little owl should be windings its way to Rowan Dragonsinger's house!

No homework. Catching up on crafts

Well since there is no homework this week. I've been trying to catchup on my crafts.

The first thing I finished was the shawl I was making my mom for Mother's day. It came out really pretty. I'm pretty sure I'll do this pattern again. Tunisian crochet was a change of pace and pretty fun. Though not as fast (for me anyway) as regular crochet, it is still faster for me than knitting.

Here is a close up of both front and back sides. This is before blocking.

I do love knitting even though I'm sort of slow at it. I am working on squares for a Lapghan. I have a Piecework magazine that has a Barbara Walker square that I want to try. That meant I needed to finish the last Barbara Walker square I was working on. The square is called Pavilion, and is from the 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. I still have to bind off, but then the square is done and I can move on to the square in my Piecework Magazine.

For my third excursion this week, I was determined to finish a tiny tatted motif which for one reason or another has been daunting me for weeks. Every time I sat down to work on it, I would invariably do something wrong and have to untat, and then my time was up and I'd be off doing something else. I was determined to finish, and finish I did!
I'm working on 25 tatted motifs for the year. I was ahead early on, and slacked off. Now after this daunting little celtic cross from Tatting Collage by Lindsay, I'm behind 2 motifs. Have to hurry hurry. Don't get me wrong, the patterns in Tatting Collage all look easy, it was just the universe conspiring against me for this little piece.

And after finishing my tatted piece, I really wanted to work on some fun crochet. I just received a book called Creating Crochet Fabric, by Dora Ohrenstein. There are some fun looking fabrics in there. A few caught my eye. I think I would like to make some drapes or at least a valance out of some of her fun fabrics. But the piece that I sat down and thought would give me quick crochet satisfaction was a photo she labeled "Traditional Lacework Motifs." I searched the book front to back, and discovered she did not have the pattern. So I decided I would try to work out the pattern on my own. I ran into some troubles on the last round. I kept having to do single crochet around one spot everytime I ran across it. I think I must have covered that area about 3 times with 6sc. Oh well. It is a first attempt and it was late at night. I'll think of something else for the final row next time.

Potions Homework

Originality marker

Part 1:

pictures of 5 different plants, herbs, or flowers that might be used in potions.

1) Dried out Gillyweed. Typically slimy and green, but this has been removed from water for a long time. When eaten, gives a person gills to breathe underwater and gives them webbed hands and feet for swimming.

2) Hackberry tree. This is a very uncommonly used Wand Tree. It has yet to be proven if any wizard or witch has accepted a wand made of the hackberry tree. However, from this photo, you can clearly see the trees are still cut down and harvested to make wands.

3) Pumpkin. Not technically a magical plant, however they are frequently used to decorate for Halloween feasts. Hagrid maintains a pumpkin patch outside his hut, which produces the pumpkins used to decorate the Great Hall for the Hallowe'en feast.
Also a pumpkin patch is a nice place to allow your Hippogriff to lounge.

4) Mallowsweet (otherwise known as African Mallow).
Centaurs have been known to burn this, observing the fumes and flames to refine the results of their stargazing.

5) Powdered form of Hellebore. It is used for invisibility.

Part 2:
Answer the following potions questions:

1. Sneezewort, scurvy grass, and lovage are used to make what?

B:Confusing Draught

2. Porcupine quills are to be added when to a Boil Cure Potion?

D: After it is removed from the fire

3. What potion, if brewed correctly, should change color numerous times throughout brewing including deep purple, lilac, and finishing clear?

A: The Draught of Living Death

4. This ingredient in the Draught of Peace, would likely bring you permanent peace since it is poisonous, what is it?

D: Hellebore

5. Chopped daisy roots, skinned shrivel-fig, sliced caterpillar, one rat spleen, dash of leech juice are all ingredients to what?

C: Shrinking Solution

Part 3:
Take a picture of and list the ingredients and/or instructions to make one of your favorite potions that you have created.

Ginger Mint Tea. When boiling water for making tea, throw your ginger in so you can release the flavor. Later add your mint and steep. Yummy ginger mint tea!

Friday, April 30, 2010


Well it is my birthday today! So far all is going as planned. I slept in (possibly the most important plan on my list!) The rest of the day I plan on crocheting and gardening. I really want to work more on the shawl I'm making. And I really want to work in my garden. My parents brought me a picnic table and two benches last night. I need to find a pretty place to put them.

I was out at the Natural Gardener earlier this week. I bought probably too many plants and now I need to finish putting them in the ground. I already planted one thai basil, a pumpkin, 2 butternut squash, 2 acorn squash and 2 okra that I bought there. I have bean seeds planted now around my corn as well.

Today I want to add more soil to 6 other okra that are growing and to a couple of peppers that I have growing in a container. I also need to turn up some soil and get 9 more tomatoes in the ground. I will have a ring of 6 tomatoes and then another ring with 3 cucumber and 3 tomatoes. I would also like to buy a nice trellis and plant an apple gourd near it. Once I know where I'll put that I'll probably plant my watermelon and asian melon nearby. That will take care of the veggies that I bought.

I also have more basil to plant, some mint, marigolds and moss rosses, an autumn fern and many many other things. See, I did buy too many plants haha!

Ok off to get my fingers dirty!

Saturday, April 24, 2010


Well I was eliminated this week. I was just not fast enough. I have managed to finish the sole and top of both booties. I'm now doing the top rim and tongue. I will try to get a photo up tomorrow if possible.

I hope I can knit and crochet a little faster tomorrow for the Quidditch match against the Hufflepuffs. I'll be playing Keeper. The match starts at 11am. I have so many errands to run before the match. Hope I can finish them all.

The good news for the day (since I the bad was that I lost my duel), I got my new glasses and the Trooper was finally repaired! Yay I have mobility again. The glasses have to go back to the shop because the right eye is still blurry. I guess the lab got the prescription wrong. The Trooper is going in the morning to finally get inspected. We drove it last night about 65 miles so it would run all the computerized tests. It should pass this time. Yay!

Alright off to get ready for bed, it is very late and I need to be well rested for Quidditch tomorrow!
