WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: INDIA

India’s Academy of Sorcery boasts an impressive display of flashy colours, from enchanted saris that shift colours sporadically throughout the day, to the lavishly painted exterior of the academy which is situated in a nondescript location along Ganges River. Due to the frightening rate at which the school’s ancient mango tree (jokingly nicknamed “Mammoth Mango Machine”) produces mangoes, students have to endure the perpetually evolving art of mango cuisine at least five days a week. Every year, to the students’ great enjoyment, classes are halted for Diwali to make time for various competitions that take place: firework flourishes and charms for upper-year students (bonus points if it doesn’t set any part of the school on fire), and lantern designing for lower-year students (use of animals, alive or dead, is forbidden).

Gemstone Quilt: Finished!

I am pleased to report that I finished the gemstone quilt this weekend! 

I’m happy with how it’s turned out. I learned a few new sewing/quilting skills along the way - foundation paper piecing and curved piecing - that I know I’ll be using a lot again.

This quilt is *just about* ready to go to its new home, after one addition that I’ll post soon!

Quilty details:

  • * Approximately 55” x 60” finished size
  • * Gemstones from a foundation paper piecing pattern from Sarah Sharp of {no} hats in the house; pieced into a quilt top of my own design
  • * Quilt top, back and binding made entirely of Kona cotton solids in 16 shades (that I got in a "sea spectrum" bundle) of blue and 2 shades of grey (Shadow and Iron)
  • * 50/50 cotton/bamboo batting fill
  • * Straight-line quilted with Aurifil 50wt thread with a walking foot on my Janome 8200 QC

Thanks to my Dad for helping hold the quilt for the photos! :)

Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes - I completed my September goal!

I haven’t really posted a lot about this on Tumblr yet, but I’ve progressed on my very first sweater project!

It’s based on the ever popular Wesley Crusher jumpsuit top from Star Trek: TNG.

As of right now, on September 15, 2014 I have the main body finished, and I have started one the first sleeve.

I’m pretty sure I’ll get it finished before Halloween, and then I can dress up as genderbent Wesley Crusher, or as I would be named, Whitney Crusher.

I will update more soon!

Well, I have posted about this on my personal blog, but I need to post it here! I’m knitting my first sweater! And I’m almost done!
