Lots of Little Miracles

Here's a story of one of the smallest  miracles. 

So I'm working on a Harry Potter pattern, the Extendible Ear.  This is the last piece to make, and I've run out of the brown I was using for the shadow... (I should have known better.)  I have all but five pieces  done.

 Five more pieces from this little bit?

 Not going to happen. I need to find some more.

I looked amongst the stash- nothing.  I checked with the scraps that are separated by color - nothing. I dug out the potholders I was making for house warming gifts to my family - nothing.  I checked the big bin of snippets, the whole thing - nothing.  I still had two places to check.  The stand up bin next to the cutting table- way at the bottom...

These little pieces should get me through. 

I should be able to finish tomorrow.  I'll run it bye you when I do.

What plant is this?

This one grows on the south side of my house... I really don't know what it is, but the leaves  look really familiar.  I think it's some kind of  Hydrangea, but the flowers are all wrong.  They look  like downward facing bell flowers.

Do they ring a bell with you?
So it's Friday!
Have a great weekend.

Finished Hagrid's Hut

I like how this one turned out.  On this version there is a thatched roof and a weedy lawn.

All four of the most recent makes.  Next up is the fairly new pattern for the Extendible Ears.  I just happened to find my flesh colored fabrics recently. 

Hope you are having a great Monday.

Still working on the Hut

Hagrid's Hut, that is.  Not many seams left to do, but try to find some time to sew.

I know you all have the same problem.
