Twas Trevor

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town,
Trevor was celebrating as the snow tumbled down.
His santa hat settled square on his head,
He had no plans tonight for early to bed.

This cute little toad was off looking for joy
and hoping that Santa would leave him a toy.
Not worrying about shopping, he had it all done
Trevor wanted to find friends and have fun.

To Diagon Alley he hopped in a hurry,
Looking for Crookshanks, his buddy so furry.
Further along was Winky and Kreacher,
With butterbeer enough for all of the creatures.

Thanks to the floo, they were soon on their way
To Hogsmeade where they would await Christmas Day.
For Trevor knew more would make the day merry,
Along with firewhiskey and some good old sherry.

It wasn't too long before more join the party,
With wishes for all that were sincere and hearty.
Trevor smiled with delight when he spotted them all,
And across the Three Broomsticks you could hear him call:

To Neville and Luna
Ginny and Harry
Ron and Hermione
Telling them not to tarry
Gryffindors, Slytherins, 'Puffs and 'Claws,
House didn't matter, he'd invited them all,
So it was he shouted and raised his glass
Happy Christmas to one, Happy Christmas to all.

There's a peace found in old friends that can't be found many other places. You know those old friends -- not so much in age or time known -- but in the foundation that developed and remained and all that has been built on it ever since. The friends that don't care what you scruff around your house in because they're there to see you not your house or latest outfit.

The ones who won't be able to bail you out cause they're right next to you :D

They are the ones you're comfortable with and sometimes don't have to say what's wrong but just let them know something's not right and they're with you supporting you, even with distance between you both, you can still feel their touch when you need a hug.

The kind of friends I've found in the Crafty Witches here. We don't always agree. We don't always like the same books or movies ... Well except Harry Potter! :D But whenever something is wrong, they are among some of the first people I know I can turn to.

And sometimes, that old friend can be a pattern that you know so well you can do it in your sleep but the familiarity of it is like a warm hug that protects you from the onslaught of whatever is trying to 'invade your peace'. The repetitive and well-known working that you do without thinking because you've done it enough times to know it by heart.

This past month, that's where I've had to turn, to my fellow CW's and when they're not available to that familiar pattern that I've worked before. Finding new patterns is wonderful, but it's always nice to know those old friends are always there for you.

Does it? *smiles*

This week, with no computer at work till it was repaired, I've spent time crafting to avoid the frustration it was causing with things I couldn't get done.

So on [profile] card_challenges , though the June Challenge mentioned Dads and Grads, I have neither in my family this year. Both Joe's and my father's are no longer on this side and my son don't graduate till next year. Make the card now and I'll never ever find it next year! *grins*

So I made a card that can be used to just say 'hi' or encourage - an all occasion card - using the Gate Method

Open me! )

In the meantime,using the miuku the cat pattern, my entry for the June Challenge over at [community profile] starknuts is inspired by the greatest inspiration ever,[profile] fabulous_catt herself.


Gaze on the likeness )Gaze on the likeness of the fabulous one )


As for HPKCHC, I've finished my Ancient Runes OWL with the completion of my triquetra tote. Also the badger baby bib and 2 sets of wristwarmers for quidditch

Well I've been meaning to post all this and planned last Friday to update but my internet went down and couldn't be fixed till Monday night.  But finally, here it is.

Firstly, I had promised some photos of awesome squeemail received and here they are.

From [livejournal.com profile] jennbrad52 , the most wonderfully warm and comfy pair of crocheted Maryjane slippers which I wear all the time at home.



The same day, I also received a package from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit that contained the gorgeous painting she did of a water dragon (my own Nessie picture :) ) and the awesome Halloween banner.



Also, [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat and I did a personal Twilight Trade and her package arrived full of fabulous goodies   A paperpieced Twilight Bag, Twi stationary, Twi Journal all made by her.  Bookmarks, stickers and some LaPush beach fabric.  An Australia pencil set as well as Liquorice Bullets (mmmmmmm  and think chocolate Good & Plenty!), Allsorts (which can be gotten in the US just not where I live) and Tim Tams and yes, I've done my first Tim Tam Slam.  Oh and [livejournal.com profile] ofenjen ?  The new Target in Ft. Smith does not have TimTams :(   She also included a book of dog sweater patterns with a cute set of knitting needles (little dogs on top)





Thank you all for the wonderful squeeness!!!

I've been getting some crochet done...  107 of 200 mini cauldrons done for the OKC Yule Ball... here's 50 of them



A Molly Sweater that Accio_lily on Leaky Cauldron has been waiting for for months!



Several 12" blocks in a CAL I'm in on Ravelry that will become an afghan for my bedroom and a Team Edward Tote that is the prize for the newest [livejournal.com profile] twilight_crafts  challenge

And my squeemail this wee was my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard that I won on friday (just before the internet died) at Hogshead.org!.  However, I have yet to read it as dear hubby grabbed it last night and hasn't finished yet.

Tonight we're going out.  The place we went to on Halloween has the same group coming back for "Celtic Christmas Night' and we're going to it for a while.  Weekend is mostly just relaxing at home and crafting. 

Also spent time updateing my pages on Ravelry, Cut Out and Keep and Deviant Art as well as MyCraftivity.com  I was rather excited when my internet came back on to see that one of my projecs on Cut Out and Keep is in the top 20!  Which is my pizza recipe that I've made since my kids were in school and they love.

Currently been catching up on getting some Molly Sleeves made for other Mollys that are being waited on and the mini cauldrons as well as the other pieces for Mollys.   Also, mailed out my cards for [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat 's recipe swap this morning at the post office.

Still have to up date on the Metallica concert that was just fantastic!  But now its time to get ready to go out.

Lottsa Mollys )

However, my craFting these past months did not stop there. I made the atc's and owls below for some swaps at Terminus, the tshirts for the DRAGONs team (Leaky Con 09 Informal Programming Team) to wear at Terminus as well as a crown for our Queen Dragon :), gifts for friends and fiends that I looked forward to spending time with while there (and did :D ).

Crafty Crafts )
Made myself a shawl to wear to the ball at Terminus and then made shawls for [livejournal.com profile] hp5freak and her mom, [livejournal.com profile] lindal_2007

Shawls, shawls shawls )
There was a wedding at Terminus and I wanted to make a small something for the couple... this afghan

And along with an apron above, made this for a Twilight swap with Cat

Your result for The Harry Potter Wand Test...

10", Oak, Dragon

You scored 37 wisdom, 22 bravery, 16 emotional, and 39 martyrdom!

Oak signifies wisdom, endurance, protection, and authority. Your dragon's heartstring core makes your wand very effective in hexes.
