Sneak Peek

So this week I worked on finishing up the handmade item for my spoilee's kit. It still needs some more finishing touches, but I'm happy with the result. It came out exactly as I envisioned. After I get it all finished up and shipped off I'm going to work on writing the pattern out.

I thought I'd offer a little sneak peek of the project to my spoilee. Are you ready Laeita? Here you go!

A Busy Week

While I was in the infirmary with Madam Pomfrey recovering from my illness, I took some time to catch up on some reading about vampires and werewolves. It was extremely interesting reading and I look forward to reading more at a later date. I also had time to work on the socks started from the yarn I received in my last swap kit from Ferula Vector. They're almost done, just need to finish up the leg on the second sock. I'll be sure to post pictures once they're complete. I've also been working on the journal for my spoilee this term. Its progressing nicely and I might post a teaser picture up a little later. I sure hope she likes it. I put in the order for the rest of her goodies this morning so hopefully they should be here soon. I'm really enjoying putting her kit together and I hope she likes it a lot.

I also won the first round of the sock duel. Now onto the second round!

Sick This Week

Short post this week...I've been spending some time in the infirmary this week with Madam Pomfrey. I even missed out on the trip to Hogsmeade :-(

However, I did find out that I won the first round of dueling club. Now onto the next round!
