Hufflepuff Quiz #7

I somehow missed the quiz this week! Here are my answers anyway:

1. If this was your first HSKS, have you enjoyed yourself. If you are alumni, was this term better than other terms (if so how)? I liked all the activities, but my own life was busy, too, so I didn't participate as fully as I would have liked.

2. Will you be returning for HSKS7? I think so!

3. What is your favorite part of HSKS? Quidditch

4. If you had the chance to switch houses next term would you? What house would you be in? I've enjoyed Hufflepuff and would like to stay if possible.

5. Are there any problems that you need to talk to the Head Girl or Prefects about? Nope, just trying to get my package done on time. I have all the pieces but need to pull it together.

6. Has your Spoiler been in contact with you about your package? Yes, I've already receive it!

7. Have you been in contact with your Spoilee to let them know you are still with us? ;) I need to send her another owl-mail I think.

Owl Arrived!

A beautiful owl dropped a huge box off for me yesterday from Waverly Trimble!!! Look at all the HSKS goodness stuffed in side:
There is a handmade black bag to hold my Dye Kit! I have no idea what TO DO with it now, but I'll figure it out! And, Waverly gave me Hufflepuff colors! You can also see some of my pampering kit items in both pictures: neck rest, gels, soap, confetti, loofah .... aaah, I feel relaxed already.AND, there were two new Bamboo crochet hooks and some DPNs (I'm gonna figure out how to use them!), plus a hot chocolate lover's tower of delight .... gorgeous mug, cocoa mix, even chocolate with a mini grate for the ultimate luxury! Plus, that sweet believe mini-pillow hanger. I love it all. Thank you so much!!!

I need to finish up my package to send .... I didn't make the early mailing dealine and am so bummed about that. I wanted my Dumbledore's Army badge... =(

Ugliest Hat in the World??

I'm ashamed to admit, I may have sent Fleur the ugliest hat in the world. I was following the guidelines and used some yarn from my stash. The farther I got with the pattern, the more "interesting" it looked but I'm so behind in my crafts that I kept going. I'm also sure it's a smidge too big, so I added a sweet pink satin ribbon to the brown -err- furry hat. Too bad we don't live where it's extremely cold.

I like pink and brown together but, to tell you the truth, the overall effect of that particular yarn in that hat (without the ribbon) kinda reminds me of Ron's dress robes ... if you know what I mean! LOL!!! I tucked in a really nice knitting book to make up for my tardiness (and ugliness).

So, here it is, the reason Ron has such a look on his face:

I hope we all agree that there's truth in "it's the thought that counts"! I wish Fleur the best of luck in this next round!!! Huzzah Huffs!!
