Cat was nominated becauseclass="quotetop" style="border-width: 1px 1px 0px 4px; border-top: 1px dotted #000000; border-left: 4px solid #8394b2; border-right: 1px dotted #000000; margin: 2px auto 0px; padding: 3px; background-image: url(; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-color: #e4eaf2; color: #000000; font-weight: bold; background-position: 100% 50%;">QUOTEclass="quotemain" style="border-width: 0px 1px 1px 4px; border-left: 4px solid #8394b2; border-right: 1px dotted #000000; border-bottom: 1px dotted #000000; margin: 0px auto; padding: 4px; background-color: #fafcfe; color: #465584;">Not only is she a phenomenal quilter, knitter and an extraordinary crafter but she is also one of the most giving and sharing people I have been honored with meeting through Harry Potter. I first met Cat over at Harry Potter Crafting and she was one of the people that welcomed me so warmly when I joined. She is a very encouraging person and whenever I would have a problem with a project, I knew help would be just an email away.
She is a very imaginative and inspiring Harry Potter crafter and I have been lucky to be the recipient of several swaps from Cat.
Her crafting goodness can be seen here on the Leaky and also at Harry Potter Crafts.

Cat has been interviewed by the one and only Crafty Princess Amber so head on over to the Crafty Witches & Wizard's YouTube channel, sit back, hit play, and enjoy!

Some projects of special note of Cat's are:
A paper-pieced Dumbledore tote.
