2015 in a nutshell. It is the last day of the year 2015, I cant believe how the time has flown. And decided that I need to recap on my project list for 2015, that I had written up for this year.

Project of Doom Week 13 Monster Book of Monsters and Quirrell’s Turban is this weeks options in the Quilt Along. I took some inspiration from other members of the group and decided to make my Monster Book of Monsters “Fluffy”.

And my house tie. “You might belong in Hufflepuff, Where they are just and loyal, Those patient Hufflepuffs are true, And unafraid ofRead More →

Quilt Pattern testing Recently I tested some Quilt pattern for a couple of people, from the Project of Doom group. That was great fun, the finished patterns will be worked in to my Project of Doom quilt. Dobby the house elf, he will be peeking around the side of the book case. A sleeping dragon baby, to represent the dragons in the Harry Potter Movies and Books. She is Rosie and will be sleeping on top of my Book Case. “Yes, Harry Potter!” said Dobby at once, his great eyes shining with excitement. “And if Dobby does it wrong, Dobby will throw himself off theRead More →
