From another post:
Let the anagram solving begin!
In the second volume of the HP books by JK Rowling, The (#1)Chamber of Secrets, we continue to learn the incredible adventures of Hogwarts student (#2) Harry Potter and his friends (#3) Ron Weasely and (#4) Hermione Granger. Belonging to the house of (#5) Gryffindor, they attend Defense Against the (#6) Dark Arts taught by Wizarding celebrity (#7) Gilderoy Lockhart, a none-too-bright fellow who cannot even handle pixies!
In The (#8) Chamber of Secrets, we also meet Dobby a (#9)House Elf for the first time. Determined Dobby seeks to sabotage the return of (#10) Harry Potter to Hogwarts and is pretty persistent but is unsuccessful. After a few weeks at school, the deceased Ravenclaw student who haunts the girls lavatory, also known as (#11) Moaning Myrtle, shows (#12) Harry Potter and (#13) Ron Weasely an old empty diary that dropped through her ghostly form out of thin air!
Many nifty things continue to happen for the next several months… we won’t go into all the juicy details right now… however, the ending is prime reading indeed!! (#14) Harry Potter finally kills Tom Riddle’s (a.k.a #15 Voldemort) sneaky diary (which we now know is a #16 horcrux) and saves the sister of (#17) Ron Weasely, (#18) Ginny!!!
Oh! Of course, we must mention that the thickheaded (#19) Gilderoy Lockhart unintentionally erased his own memory, so he won’t be back for book three, The (#20)Prisoner of Azkaban…

When he isn’t watching TV he is working in his cactus garden.
His friends call him PE for short.
This was my first Magic Loop project. I don't think I am doing it completely correct, but oh well. The fuzzy yarn really worked against me. I remember why I hate that kind of yarn with a passion.

I was naughty this pass weekend and started another project. I started another Ginny GOF hat. I had yarn just screaming at me to use it. It is looking pretty huge.
Once I finish my blanket, hat, and bag pieces I have to get back to mittens for Warm Woolies and S.P.E.W. This term with HLBOE we are making mittens and we can give them to the charity of our choice. Which is really nice because I need to do more WW stuff. My tally is only 2 hats.
La de da...Oh, I recieved a RAOK from my HSKS 7 partner! I notice right at the end of term that my name was checked off the list. I got it in the mail yesterday! I had on my wish list a book keeper that has a lightning bolt embroidered on the front. It is so cute! I am going to take a photo of it and post it. Hopefully I can get to it tonight.

I think I am going diamond hunting on Friday. I haven't been in years. Here is the link if curious
I am hoping that it rains before then so we will have more of a chance to find something. R will like digging in the dirt if nothing else. I read that they have a water park now. I don't know if we will do that, but any who. If only I found a diamond....
I was watching a show on the Travel Channel one day about all of these places in the U.S. you can pay a fee to dig or mine for gems or fossils. I have decided when R gets older that is what we should do- travel everywhere to dig for stuff. I am going to research some places. Wouldn't it be just neat to find your own emerald.
I finished my 3rd Ginny GOF hat last night. All I need to do now is run the yarn or ribbon through the holes. It is pretty cute. I have no idea what I am going to do with it. I am over due on a graduation present...I think she would like it.
I have 2 blanket squares left. I should have finished it this past weekend, but oh well. I going to get it done this weekend hopefully. I am going to use Pren's Gryffindor dishcloth with some minor changes to fit my block and something else red.
I am trying to finish up one of my purses too. It is a 1/2 knit, 1/2 sewing project. (I am using the yarn from Lady Arabella for this one) Now that I moved to a larger space I think I can have a sewing machine. I really want to use the fabric that Cassandra Crisomchin gave to me because I love it so much!
La dee da. Wish me luck on the diamond!
