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!
