Big week for me as I have successfullhy completed A SOCK!!!!
I refer to it as the pink sock of doom!! I used regular lily sugar and cream cotton so that I could practice before I go to the teeny tiny sock yarn ad needles.
Of course as so many noted, sock off doom needs a mate.
I shall get that... eventually. At the moment, have cast on regular sock. oooooooooh.

also, started a hat.
One of my best friends mother was diagnosed with breast cancer so I am making her a hat for the chemo.

ALMOSt done with all the sewing projects I had started before I went in the hospital. I will be so gald to have that monkee off of my back.

did a video blog this week. It can be found here It features SOCK! :D

camp memories and KIT!!

Looking at the camp dates, it's hard to believe that it's nearing and end! When it first strated, it seemed like it would be a while before it ended. Now the owls are flying back and forth all over the world, delivering the goods. I have had a great time and will undoubtedly participate again!
This weekend and owl arrived on my doorstep with my kit from loverofallemo! As I am a defender against the dark arts, she sent me a kit to aid in that quest.
First is a pic of the kit as a whole. The patterns are the HOrcux sock pattern with green and purple yarn and the other is the Fawkes pattern with orangy phoenix yarn. There is also my very favorite thing coffee, sugar free dark chocolate (my very favorite), a camp teheme scrap book kit which was an awesome idea and she made me an Ashwinder for my Ashwinder cabin!! THe piece of paper is a delcaration for using DADA propely!

And here are closer up pictures of both sides.

And here, the Ashwinder has taken up residence in his new home AKA My office!

Finally Friday!! Sheesh this week has gone on forever long!!
HOpefully by this afternoon, my newly ordered converse in turquise and purple will have been delivered. I expect them to look awesome with my robes as my pink ones do.

I"m looking forward to a weekend of crafting! I would like to make good headay on the never ending afghan of doom. I'd also like to do some stencling and maybe some sewing.

I haven't cut myself yet doing stencils but watch it happen now that i'm loaded up on warfarrin.

Saturday Saturday!!!

Ended up choosing the time it poured to get out and run errands. It was great as I love the rain.
Got my hairs did.
Just needed a trim but she ended up cutting more than that off.
I actually like it. It's just a wee bit different and getting it trimmed at all means my curls are bouncy again. This makes extremely happy.

Went back to worko n Wednesday. I am glad I decided to make it a short week. It wore me out as it was. To make matters worse, my computer failed to work. HOpefully MOnday, it will work again. I'm about to throw it out of the window!!
stupid muggle equipment grumblegrumble.

Having finsihed many projects recently, I decided to take out an old one.
I had started a shell sttch blanket for my husband in his Buffalo Bill colors.
Maybe 'll get it finished by his birthday in september. hooray!

HSKS Game 6

Potion #1
Madame Warbobbles carries around Draught of Peace which could be cleverly disguised in pill form or to state off other anxieties... COFFEE which holds off all madness!!

I need more :D

Potion #2:
A Mandrake restorative draught is used when one is (dramatic Dumbledore pause) Petrified.

I believe that this too takes the form of coffee so that one is not petfiried with sleepiness!

Potion #3..ish
When Miss Warbobble wishes to hear someone speaking nonsense, she would administer a Babbling Beverage.

Potion #4..ish
The cure for the boils caused by the Twins' Fever Fudge is Murlap Essence

And according to the blog of Miss Wartbobble, she keeps several potions handy at all times to so complete the list...

5. Mrs. Scower's Magical Mess remover
6. Wit Shapening Essence
7, Forgetfulness Potion
