Lately it seems all I do here on this blog is play catch up. I need to get back in the habit of posting more regularly. I guess the busier life gets the more this poor blog gets neglected. Anyways on with our catch up.
Over the 4th of July weekend we went to WI to visit with my family. It was a lot of fun. While there I made this necklace. I find doing the Harry Potter House Cup helps me to finish more projects than if I'm working on my own. This particular necklace (ravelry link) I turned in for my July Potions homework. The assignment this month was Felix Felicis (sp?) So we needed to make something that was small and golden.
Also on the trip I finished my June Charms homework. I didn't have enough time to finish it in the month of June. I made an illusion scarf to wear to the HBP movie. (which we've yet to go see) The scarf is in the Gryffindor colors but the illusion is of the Heroes sign. Just something for fun!
Also for this Month we needed to turn in wrist warmers for our Quidditch team. I made a pair and let the girls each have one. they were super excited. and Have been wearing them ever since. I had to make the Bub leave her's here at home when she left for camp on Monday morning.
Monday Night I finished 1/2 of my OWL for this term. (I'm working extra hard on it so I'll be done at the end of the month) The bead was super excited and proceeded to wear it most of Tuesday. I also started on the bub's sweaters (the other 1/2 of my OWL). I'm using Vanna's choice yarn and after washing the sweater it's super soft. I made it s size bigger (5/6) so she can wear it longer. Of course it's being summer it's a little warm to wear it.
For this month's astronomy homework I choose to do an invincibility star. The pattern can be found here. (here's my ravelry link) It's a really easy pattern and I used glow-in-the-dark yarn. it's pretty cool. Being crochet it was a quick project.
I wanted to share something that isn't knitting or crochet. This past Wednesday my DH called and said you have to come get this playhouse. someone had left a plastic playhouse out by the side of the road with a "FREE" sign on it. So I packed up the bead and we went to collect it. It wasn't a pretty sight. when we got it home we had to deep clean it. It looks a lot better now. and the Bead has been sooo excited playing with it all the time. We've been talking about getting something like that for the girls to play with. so we were lucky that we got one for free. I really love getting things for free don't you?
