|Just a need to finish the row.|
Not much has been going on in the crafting front. I did, however, write up all my proposals for my tournament crafting groups on Ravelry. I have my Potions OWL set and ready to go - which I'm using the same project for my PIXAR proposal - and I have decided on my BROOM for my Order of the Phoenix Mission. It should be a ton of fun but I have to wait for one week because nothing starts until May 1st.
I also started on some bartering squares. There is a girl in Slytherin who does these awesome wood-burned boxes and so she and I struck a deal. She's making me a box to store my hooks and I'm making her 12" blanket squares that she was needing. I have since learned that I don't really like making such big squares. My first one is almost complete, as you can see, but it wasn't as much fun as making the smaller ones. I quoted her 30 squares but she thought it was too much so perhaps I'll make 15 instead. I don't know. We'll see how it goes and where I end up. I told myself to make one a day, two if I can muster it, so that I have a good pile for when she's done with my box. Neither one of us was any good at deciding what would be an appropriate number so I just looked up the dimensions for a twin size comforter and made it a tad smaller.
I do wish it was May 1st though because I would like to start on my OWL project... it's been calling my name for two weeks now! Don't forget to share your stories for a chance to win that fabulous pattern book. Entries close this Friday!
