my kit came!

I recieved my kit today from Emma Scrimgeour. She made me a very nice cowl with a cute pin on it. There is some nice purple self striping sock yarn, a pattern for ankle socks, stitch markers and a whole lot of great smelling coffee. Thanks Emma!

final project coming together nicely

I have been getting together all the last little pieces of my kit together. The yarn I ordered is really nice, I may have to order some for myself after the holidays are over. I am working on the handmade object and I am really happy with the color choices I made. I should have that wrapped up this weekend then I can just focus on wrapping everything up and getting some treats crammed into the box as well.

halfway there

I can't believe this term is already half over. Although I am really enjoying the theme of this swap and the way the swap is working out, I do miss quidditch. I doubt I would have time for it even if we were playing this term. I have been continuing to work late nights/early mornings at the ministry. I think I have finally decided on an alternate handmade item for Cassie's kit. I am still not sure about it,but time is a wasting, I am going to try and get over to my fav yarn shop in diagon alley this weekend so I can get started.
I got a. New owl that comes with me to the ministry which I hope will help me communicate for the rest of this term.

be very very quiet...I am hunting for horcruxes..

I love the theme of this term at hogwarts. We are sending horcrux kits! I have so many fun ideas, and some rather creepy ones! I need to get some measurements from Cassandra and start working on the handmade item. It is very ambitious and I hope I can get it to turn out right. I am rather nervous after my last homemade item disaster (which I still have to finish the replacement for). So much to do, I think I need to see if I can get a time turner.
