All Hallows Eve

Last year my business partner and I decided to dress up for Halloween at the cafe. Remember Alice, the television sitcom about Mel's Diner?

The Coming of Stitches Witches

The real news is that a number of HSKS participants will be flying into Baltimore for Stitches East! Everyone is meeting up at Queen Frysia's castle for a weekend of friends, fiber, fun and food!

Slytherin Homework #3

Well the question is about Chapter 10....

Harry's first encounter with Tom Riddle's diary gives insight to Voldermort's formative years. His parent's loveless marriage, his mother manipulating his father and the father's eventual abandonment are disclosed. It is also the chapter in which two future horcruxes - Slytherin's locket and the Peverell ring - are introduced. Now off to work on my kit......
