My Kit

My kit from Violet DeVeela came yesterday!! Violet did an awesome job of spoiling me!! She sent so many wonderful things! The s'more goldfish didn't get far before my son and I opened them up!!

Here is a picture of every thing opened. Violet send me yarn to make Sheldon to study for Care of Magical Creatures. She also sent the goldfish and some gummy frogs that are also magical creatures.

Here is all the yummy Shine Sport to make Sheldon and a few of the other animal forms that Sheldon can use to disguise himself! There is also stuffing and eyes (so everything I need to create him!) I also got a yarn project container, which I love! And some post-it notes, which I cracked into right away too!

Violet sent me the Sheldon pattern and put the other Sheldon patterns on the flash drive. Plus she created a manual all about Sheldon, the forms he takes, his likes, etc! So creative!! She also send some camp and frog stickers for scrap booking!!

Violet also send Sheldon some socks (which my knitting group loved too!) and some stitch markers, a pair of earrings, and a shawl pin (which I have been wanting to get!)
Like I said, Violet did an awesome job spoiling me! She so deserves to win for Best Kit!!

I think I might

So I have decided to give kool-aid dying a try. I have been stalking the 'what a kool way to dye' group forever now. I got some grape, cherry, and tropical punch kool-aid today. I still want to find some pink, green, and blue kool-aid mixes... I will be sure to post pics when I get to dying (hopefully next week). I want to try a purple/blue mix for the first set of socks. If that works okay I get some more yarn and try some more... I think I see a new addiction forming!

Late as usual

So I feel as if I am always posting last minute. Things have been busy this summer with all the projects that I am working on and the cake decorating classes that I am taking. These are the cupcakes that I decorated this week.

The one thing that I am not behind on is Hexy's kit!! I am sending my owl off this morning!! I am really excited and nervous!!

I went to the 12:01 opening of the Half Blood Prince on Wednesday morning. The event was attended by many witches and wizards. It seems this is one of the few times we can get out in public and dress in robes with out muggles really noticing. Overall I really enjoyed the movie. There was, as everyone has said, a wonderful line where Dumbledore mentioned his love of knitting. Dumbledore happens to be my one of my favorite Hogwarts headmasters (nothing against Ms. Wartbobble). This movie had some wonderfully put together scenes. They removed much from the book though, for time. And kept the movie fairly simple in plot line. I can not wait to see the next movie in 2010! I hope it doesn't get pushed back like this one had!

Other than going to the HBP movie I have been attending a cake decorating class. Here is my first cake!!

Boggart Lesson

So this week we worked on casting the Riddikulus spell. My Boggart took the form of a spider. UGH! I really hates those. Here is what he turned into!

First lace

Things have slipped by me this week. I totally forgot to get my homework done (actually I thought I had done it but I hadn't, so I am posting it now!!).

This is what I was working on this week. My first lace shawl!! I used some sport weight yarn, so it was a really fast and easy project to complete. But I am still proud of myself for doing!! Now I am starting on a triangular lace scarf in some actual lace weight yarn. I didn't enjoy casting it on, but now that I am going it isn't too bad. I'll keep you all posted on my progress!!

In addition, I also have found quite a few goodies to put into Hexy's kit!! I really hope she enjoys everything!! I have been having fun getting it all together!
