Wow, what a busy weekend! And by that of course I mean a weekend where there was nothing to do but watch football (first one in a long time, so actually quite welcome). When that happens, my hands have a mind of their own, and the yarn begins to call my name.
I think my next pirate hat might be admiral style... with a feathery edge along the top.
Here I am casting shrinking charms onto my cauldron and quidditch broom in order to easily fit them into my trunk... and wouldn't you know it, my owl Minerva (named after the Roman goddess of wisdom, aaaand my favorite Professor!) flinched and dodged the charm. It took me all afternoon to get her down from the rafters in the kitchen!
At least I can rest assured that I am ready for Hogwarts. This term, I am taking Divination, Ancient Runes, and Muggle Studies. Sounds right up my alley doesn't it?! I hope I get sorted into the proper house. While Gryffindors seem to have all the fun, I'm pretty sure I'll be a Ravenclaw with Loony Lovegood.
Just when you're thinking "how could she possibly do any more?", I did. I took on the Star Wars challenge and made these great droid beanies.
They are the most hysterical thing I've seen in a long time (ok, maybe just since pie-rets), and you'll see Steve and I sporting them soon. I'll be sure to get a photo of us wearing them, because this does not do them justice.
I "forced" Steve to watch A New Hope so that I could get a fresh feel for how these characters look. He was nice enough to pause the movie long enough for me to snap a few photos with my phone for reference. I missed R2s lens in the back, but you won't tell anyone will you?
Hope you all enjoy your week. Now that I am all packed, I need to run for the Hogwarts Express... classes begin today!
