That will look beautiful in teal! You’ll rock it I’m sure. Added to the project log!
I would like to hereby replace my previous AS Proposal with the following:
~ ADVANCED STUDIES PROPOSAL ~
Project Name: 2021 Art Journal
Brief Description: In an attempt to stretch my creative muscles in 2021, I’m going to attempt to start and maintain an art journal. Timing TBD, but basically until I run out of pages or the year is over. Whichever comes first.
What are the rules for replacing an AS proposal? My previous one to make work pants was pretty bad timing, since I’m still working from home for the foreseeable future.
You can replace an old AS proposal at any time! You can PM me if you want or just include that a new proposal is displacing one that no longer speaks to you in the new proposal. You can also have up to 2 proposed AS projects, so if you want to keep one “on the books” and propose a second one, you can do that, too! If you have more than one currently proposed, just specify which one your new proposal is replacing in your post. Easy-peasy!
Class or Challenge Title: Hermione’s Book Club - Chapter 7
Project Name & Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: I am hoping that having purchased new watercolour paints, brushes and special watercolour paper, that I can work on building the natural talent element during 2021. These were painted to use as Christmas cards
Class or Challenge Title: Transfiguration
Project Name & Page Link: Blondies
Brief Description: These blondies were a desperate pantry bake. Under normal circumstances, I do. not. bake. Under duress, maaaybe a box mix. But I just needed SOMETHING between our two week grocery runs. My hard copy of the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook is the go-to when I just need a generic recipe, but it’s also posted here: https://www.bhg.com/recipe/desserts/chocolate-chunk-blondies/ Mine were made without the chocolate chunks or almonds.
Looks so yummy
A new Hermione’s Book Club prompt has been posted!
Wow, I really love the mandala houses Abbeeroad and Mistress Jennie!
They were really fun to make, too. We took a virtual class by Erin Prais-Hintz through the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point!
Class or Challenge Title: Detention - Advanced Studies
Project Name & Page Link: Advanced Studies Project
Brief Description: Just before the year ended, I managed to put on a burst of speed, and get some work done on my Advanced Studies project. I crocheted the last 2 rows of the cardigan, wove in all the ends, sewed on the button, and added the fringe along the hem.
~ COMPLETED ADVANCED STUDIES ~
Project Name & Page Link: It’s Shawl Good Cardigan
Brief Description: I finished my cardigan! And am even currently wearing it. I love my new sweater.
~ ADVANCED STUDIES PROPOSAL ~
Project Name: Giant Moon Shadow Afghan
Brief Description: My very dear friend David, asked me to make him an afghan. A BIG afghan. He initially requested 4’x6’, but later (after we ordered the yarn), asked if it could be 5’x7’. Even with the bulky yarn I’m using, it is slow going. I realized this weekend, that it should really be an Advanced Studies project, so I am retroactively turning it into one. I began the project on December 30th, and am on row 40, of 125 expected rows, so about 40% complete. I fully expect to spend at least the next two weeks on it, possibly longer. Basically, I will keep going until I am out of yarn, and if it isn’t large enough then (due to his change in size request), I’ll order a little more and keep going. The pattern is called the Moon Shadow Blanket, and is all one stitch, the herringbone double crochet, which is a slightly slanted stitch, and when used over and over, creates herringbones back and forth along the project. I’m using Paton’s Alpaca Blend yarn. Now my only problem, is that I’ve run out of episodes of Bridgerton to watch while working on it!
Yay, Jennie! Your completed AS project has earned 100 points for your house and your new AS proposal has been added to the project log.
Headmistress Jennie casts the House Points Charm!
