Blanket Study Hall

Today we're going to take a look at the blanket study hall! There are a lot of awesome projects being shared in there, and here are a few.

Graceness made a colorful blanket square for class.

Potoupy made these squares for her OWL.

Lea67000 made this square for the Gryff baby blanket thread, and isn't it cute?!

Watrpriestess (aka me!) has made several little granny squares to help plan a blanket color scheme.

Mio, last but definitely not least, leader of the study hall, has made an entire blanket already as well as a giant mario that will be a blanket someday.

If you have a blanket planned, feel free to drop in and share your progress and comment on others progress.

Saturday's Spotlight Shining on Muggle Studies

 Hey there, welcome to the first spotlight session of our Fall 2014 Term. This term we will taking time out each Saturday to shine the spotlight on a specific class going on. Give you a chance to see what kind of things are being turned in and maybe give you some ideas of your own.

Now before we turn on our spotlight I was to be sure that you understand that these are just a small piece of the amazing talent going on in Muggle Studies this month. I recommend you go take a look at the thread and be inspired.

All of the Houses and Lounges have come out to show that they do know how a bit about this months topic, the Internet.. or as some people call it, "The series of tubes filled with cats". They have shown off their cats, their things to please cats, and just some amazingly pretty items.

As you can see there are some great things going one in Muggle Studies. Before we shut down the spot light tonight I want to remind you that if you are having any trouble getting ideas for a class, or finding a class to fit in something you have made since term started the Knight Bus is available for help.

Also Round 1 of Quidditch is under way, and a lot of fun is going on, as we request approval for our Quidditch teams to rejoin after that nasty Education Decree from the Pink Menace. Come and score and ROAR for Gryffindor.

Till next weeks Saturday Spotlight......
