Yep, been a few days.  Partly because I spent Easter weekend being sick with a cold.  Partly cause I've been keeping busy

This is 4 of the 123 Ashie's I've completed and sent to [profile] ofenjen

Jen is going to be weaving in ends and gluing on eyes for her crewmates in Lumien House.

Finished will be something like this

Although we see the eyes do need to be bigger........  And no, this is not the "secret project"  She and I have been working on!  That's still a secret!

Had some SQUEE mail come from [profile] jewells68 Monday.  A hufflepuff tie, a very pretty Pontalbon scarf, some badge holders for my siggy tag that [profile] lezlishae made for me that I made into a nametag for PR, a mask base AND Vladimir the puffskein!

*cuddles Vladimir* 

Oh and did I mention I started two more molly sweaters, got the cap for 4 sleeves done last night!

Now back to the ashies and then at 200, on to green crocheted music notes!!!

Got some thrift shopping done with some great finds.  Jeans hubby needed, two nightgowns for NOLA in house unity colors no less!

and an interesting celtic looking wood plaque and a St Francis for my garden when I get one!

Friday I attempted to get my sewing machine fixed but was told the price would be way more than worth it.  So guess I'll consider looking for another one instead.  However I did manage to get some craft supplies I needed to finish projects and some yarn in a "lighter shade of pink than I used for Jenn's Molly"  to make yet another Molly for  [personal profile] quietish!

So will be starting on that in the upcoming weeks.

Spent the weekend crafting and as a result there is another version of "300" below!

Even Joe got crafty and so I present to you -- from the Sorceror's Stone....the flying keys!

In the meantime, started a shawl in fun yarn I found at Dollar Tree for the conference. and here's progress so far:

That's the first ball of yarn so far and the one to the side above is a full ball to give you some idea how far I seem to be getting out of one ball of it. 

Quite a good weekend!

Spent a crafty celtic weekend at home.  Yesterday, Joe and I made colcannon and some corned beef for our dinner and as we worked on various crafts together, watched several Irish movies along with Best of Riverdance and another one called Dancing on Dangerous Ground. 

Earlier in the week, I completed a Gryffindor Dragon for a HP Crafts swap I was in.  He should be arriving at his new home in the next day or two. 

Also managed to get quite a bit done on the PR secret project that [profile] ofenjen and I are working on.  Perhaps another hint? :D

As well as birthing another 100 streelers and now we have 200 all happy healthy with eyes and antenna fully developed all ready to attach themselves to loving caregivers at PR.  Have another 100 or so that will be born soon as well.

Now getting ready to start a shawl for PR...found this fun yarn at Dollar Tree and thinking of doing shell stitch on the diagonal.

Click here to view my house

Based on the drawing and the 10 answers they gave this is a summary of their personality:
Your house tells the world that you ought to be a leader. You are a freedom lover and a strong person. You are shy and reserved. If you've drawn a cross on each of windows, you always want to live alone. You are very tidy person. There's nothing wrong with that because you're pretty popular among friends. son.

You will avoid being alone and seek the company of others whenever possible. You love excitement and create it wherever you go. You see the world as it is, not as you believe it should be.

You added a flower into your drawing. The flower signifies that you long for love. It also safe to say that others don't see you as a flirt. You don't think much about yourself.

Ok, went to Walmart this afternoon and detoured into the Dollar Tree near there. Had not been into Dollar Tree in a while so found a lot of new things... including these goodies for my House uniform.

The beret was found at Walmart marked down to $3 too :D

Pontalbon Accessories for Stylin' n profilin' )

The packet holds 5 of those bracelets that you snap and light up in the color shown. Not sure what I'll do with the glass stones but maybe decorate a photo frame for a shot of some of my friends. And the ribbon rosettes, not sure what I'll do with them but will find something :D

Also found a basket done in Ravenclaw colors for hubby :D

It seems that some misinformed members of other houses believe that we in the Pontalbon House are harming streelers. Please be assured that this is not at all the fact. Rather, we are doing our utmost to ensure the survival of the species by promoting healthy and harmonious breeding zones throughout the country. This photo was taken at one of those zones in Oklahoma just after the birth of approximately 100 streelers.

They have just recently separated from their mothers and their cords still remaining.  Normally those cords fall off naturally within a few days after birth.  Their eyes have not opened yet but should do so within a week or two. 

There are more births expected at just the Oklahoma zone alone.

So as you can see, Pontalbon is doing its utmost to keep the streelers safe and alive.

By the time of PR, these streelers will be healthy enough to travel and be adopted into loving Pontalbon homes.

Well, have been finding some great accessories to use during PR as Pontalbon uniform items.

Hat and shoes )
Another hat, tote, jewelry and hair ties )

Now all I need is to get out my spring/summer clothing and see what I have in their that will work.

Also, worked on my mask some...just needs feathers, ribbon and stick which will be added this weekend.

Sparkles! )
Are we there yet? :D
dragonsinger: (Pontalbon)
Last night, received my letter saying I was sorted into Pontalbon!  SQUEE  At the time, thought I had a skirt that would be good for uniform garb for me.  Now that I look at it not sure.

What do you think?

However did find a nice tie that can be used for Ravenclaw for hubby yesterday at a thrift shop

And finally took photo of my finished Molly #4 which needs to be packed up and mailed
