Not a whole lot going on

Our Harry Potter party was relaxing and fun.

Joanne decorated cookies:

These are just the ones that made it home; the "Weasley is our King" one was just too perfect to eat.

I thought the Harry Potter Scene-It 2 game was a little slow. The trivia cards were more interesting than the on-screen items. We didn't play the board game version, and I think if we had, the on-screen stuff would have been less boring. Despite having used the words "slow" and "boring" to describe this game, I would still recommend it for Harry Potter fans wanting entertainment at a get-together. With the trivia cards included, the game should work for any age of Harry-movie-watcher. Also, it did include trivia and some scenes from the newest movie, which suprised me. OK, I guess that shouldn't surprise me. It's all marketing.

Sharman's family will be here for only one more week, so I'm planning less fiber action and more family interaction. However, I have updated my Blogiversary prize list. Changes included eight more prizes, and now the prizes are numbered to make it easier to indicate which you want.

Caveat: I plan to add more prizes, so you might want to hold off on what you request until I get them all up. I think I can have everything organized by August 7th so you have a week to think before I give out prizes on August 14th, my actual Blogiversary.

Unlike some of the other awesome prize giveaways we've seen online lately (I'm thinking of Claudia's prizes for the MS bike-a-thon), these are mostly out of my stash. Giving away yarn and other items is an officially recommended method for decreasing stash.

AH! There are 2 prizes that I would LOVE to have. Do I send my choices in now or later? It is so hard to wait, but I know you have great tase and that something else wonderful may come along. AH!

Since you so kindly mentioned update possibilities, may I revise to #6 (KP gladiolus), #17 (Sasquatch), and #20 (Sprites), again, no particular order. Choosing was very difficult, though...

And in answer, I've knit with Blue Moon just once, visited the site many times, but can't seem to get together a shopping cart of less than hubby would screech for a week about. I keep hoping he'll give me a visit there for my birthday, or something... No, I have no will at all, I admit it, but I figure that's part of my charm... :^)
