The Slug Club, November Edition!

To go out with a bang at the end of the term, here, let's have a look at some of the biggity big projects that are rolling in as the deadline counts down... those true feats of craft, the OWLs and NEWTs!

Urbanizer made a trio of gorgeous shawls to represent Andromeda Tonks, Narcissa Malfoy, and Druella Black!

3secondfish's beautiful violet sweater! Love the collar and button band!

Another sweater... JaimeK's snuggly creation!

Somehow Silksky brought herself to steek this beauty... I don't know if I could! But the end result was an amazing colourwork shawl!

And here's another stunning shawl by SandraSts!

Mimulus's wonderful octopod sweater! Two thumbs up!

And EvilMichelle turns a couple binloads of raw fiber into clean batts and pages of orderly samples for her NEWT!

Still a few hours left to get those projects in, snakies! And after that... a break month full of holiday goodness! Who wants mulled wine?

Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination – special fly by edition

It’s just hours until end of term and there’s a whirlwind of activity as students race in and out of classrooms to turn in their homework and wish their favorite professors a joyous winter break. In fact the blur of robes makes it really hard to keep ahead of the count.

The Claws are flying in from the Tower in droves. This week alone they’re ahead of the next closest house (yes, that’s us Snakes) by 77 homework projects. What did Drusilla stir up while visiting I wonder?

Here are the down and dirty numbers:

This week so far:
1. Ravenclaw 251 and a partial
2. Slytherin 174
3. Hufflepuff 166 and a partial
4. Gryffindor 159 and a partial

For November:
1. Ravenclaw 376
2. Slytherin 296
3. Hufflepuff 273
4. Gryffindor 267

And throw it all together…

1. Ravenclaw with 1554
2. Slytherin with 1360
3. Gryffindor with 1236
4. Hufflepuff with 1194

Now remember, this is JUST homework, no Detention (and Snakes are very fond of that), no Quidditch, OWLs or BROOMs. AND no bonus points. Not all homework is equal in our wise teachers eyes. But if you’re killing yourself to finish ONE-LAST-PROJECT, don’t; we’d hate for you to not to be able to lift your arms for the end of term party! We’re all in this game together, plus there’s always next term.

Remember to check in for fun things to do during the break and whatever you do – don’t miss the Sorting. Joyous break Noble Slytherins and stay crafty.

Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination, Nov 17-23

We’re up on top this week Noble Slytherins! Most popular class this week was Charms with lots of seasonal fun.

This week’s standings were:
1. Slytherin with 59
2. Ravenclaw with 57
3. Hufflepuff with 48
4. Gryffindor with 39

That means we’re only 2 projects behind Ravenclaw in the month of November AND we’re starting to close the overall homework gap. Most importantly is the fact that this is the last week of classes this term.

This is it Snakes; it’s the cup or nothing. Sew in those ends, tell a story and post your homework!

Go Slytherin, go!

Work in Progress Wednesday - Snakes in Detention

It's" Work in Progress Wednesday" - What are you working on? 

It's been a slow month in Detention for Slytherins - we've  had 16 projects turned in with most projects  earning one or more badges!  Hopefully this means we are all plugging away at classes, Order Missions, OWLS and NEWTS!

Here are the projects turned in this past week-

 With her reversible chicken and egg project, bbhatsnstuff has us wondering-
 What came first - the chicken or the egg? 

Showing true Slytherin Pride- Ephiphonora's scarf is Going the Distance! 
She has earned the Distance Award and  a Lockhart Pin - what an awesome gift! 

Sly4100's father in law is sure to love these anything but vanilla - vanilla socks! 
Great job sticking it out and finishing these! 

Don't forget Snakes - this is the last week to earn the Fall Detention 2012 Awards! 
Look how shiny these Awards are - I know you want one!!! 

and we can't forget Lockhart!!

Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination; Nov 3-9

Hey Snakes – This week was ours! Yay! Hoot! Holler! Whoop-whoop!

Great work Noble Slytherins; I know it’s easy to be distracted this time of year with the Quidditch Finals, Final OWL examinations and Broom turn-ins.

This week the standing are:

1. Slytherin with 23
2. Hufflepuff with 20
3. Ravenclaw with 19
4. Gryffindor with 17

Overall the Lions are still holding the lead for November and we’re tied in second with the Claws. However, the full tally shows us still trailing, but starting to catch up to the Ravenclaws and remember, this does not include Detention, bonus points or Quidditch, so it’s still anyone’s cup.

THREE MORE WEEKS UNTIL END OF TERM. My, that went fast, didn’t it?

Let’s go Slytherin!

The Sweet 16 results are in...

The silver bar is for the first name listed and the green bar is for the second name listed. The numbers represent the percentage of votes.
What a week Hottie Fans!  We had some really exciting match-ups.  First the Nathan Fillion vs. David Boreanaz match was wild.  The Fillion Fans were out early but the Boreanaz Backers definitely made the match up interesting!  SKG vs. Adam Levine.  Wow.  SKG is just tearing up the field this term.  Could he make it all the way to the top?  The All Blacks were out in front all week but Blake Shelton turned on that country charm and brought it home on the last day of voting.  The heated rivalry of  David Tennant vs. Alexander Skarsgard was felt this week in the Pit.  We know that DT is a fan favourite and had a hefty lead at the start of the week.  The Skarsgard Supporters bit back hard but it was too little too late.  The hotties definitely moving on to the Elite 8 are; Robert Downey Jr., Nathan Fillion, Jason Issacs, Sexy Kilt Guy, Hugh Jackman, David Tennant, Helena Bonham-Carter, and Blake Shelton.

It's time to decide who will represent their division in the finals.  Here are your Elite 8.

(9) Robert Downey Jr. vs. (2) Hugh Jackman

Evil’s Cheat Sheet of Total Domination, Oct 27-Nov 2

I can totally understand why the Muggles go crazy when they lose power for more than a few days – imagine if your wand snapped and you didn’t know when it would be repaired. We live among these poor crazed Muggles and do what we can to help them out without letting them know we’re using magic. Still, it makes it hard to concentrate on magical classes – with no thanks to the Ravenclaws who waited until the last 3 days of the month to post 60% of their projects. Yes, they beat us in October too.

Grumble, grumble; it’s a good thing they are so inspiring and endearing…

So, finals for October are as follows:
1. Righteous Ravenclaw with 527 and a partial
2. Superb Slytherin with 492
3. Gorgeous Gryffindor with 432
4. Hard-working Hufflepuff with 395 and a partial.

Gryffindor grabbed an early lead the first two days of November with 16 projects – more than double from any other house. Nice work Lions.

So here we are – last chance to keep the cup. The full total homework post standings are as follows:
1. Claws at 1185
2. Snakes at 1066
3. Lions at 98
4. Badgers at 924

If we did the same amount as September and the Claws dropped off a little we could catch them. Really.

Go Slytherin! Get in your tiny projects in multitudes – and do it now in case the power goes out. Homework by wand is not always an option, plus it overwhelms the Professors. Grumpy Teachers does not equal extra bonus points.

Fly my Pretties, fly!
