Plans Ensue! (Slytherin Break Month Activities)
RS’s plans for the next three months include Dryer Balls, Toe Up Socks using the Sherman Toe and Heel Method, more Care of Magical Creatures stitch markers, Baby Surprise Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman, and a scarf to match a hat she made for a friend.
