Hogwarts - A History.


I began this on 23rd July 2017, and today, 6th February 2018, the last stitch was completed.  I've thoroughly enjoyed working on Hogwarts Castle. 


Just needs pressing and framing.

Hmmm....what to stitch next.

The Gift of Stitching


My lovely husband bought me the new threads from DMC for Christmas. 



35 new shades.



I find it quite therapeutic to wind each skein of thread onto a bobbin. 



All ready to add to the other DMC colours I have collected over the past oooh almost 30 years!  I have all the main colours and Special Effects skeins, most of the variegated threads a handful of the silks.  Not that I'm addicted you understand.  There are worse vices!

As the fireworks signified the New Year, the last stitches were added from page 25 of the Hogwarts Castle.

Further progress.


A stitchy day with my lovely Hardanger designer friend Colly resulted in a further page finish. 


Sky section up next.
