I had a day off this week and once all the boring housework was done I sat down with a nice cup of tea and finished stitching the next page. I then laid the fabric out to take a photo and to my dismay discovered I had stitched the wrong page!
I spent the remainder of Wednesday, into the evening, and all the following evening carefully unpicking it.
For those who don't understand the title, let me explain. The 'rrribbit' sound a frog makes is akin to 'rip it rip it' of unpicking threads stitched incorrectly...hence the term frogging or having the dreaded frogs visit.
A quick going over with masking tape to remove the fluffy bits left behind, and I'm ready to stitch the correct page.
Lesson learned - double check you're working from the correct page and maybe look at your project more often.

This year sees the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, a series which has sold around 450 million copies in 29 languages and then led to a movie franchise worth more than £5 billion.
Staying therefore with the Magical World, it is a natural progression for me to take on a project I've been eyeing up for some time.
I do hope the finished product will live up to the photograph.
There are 35 pages and 47 colours.
Shouldn't take long....

It's not a secret, we're all huge fans of The Wizarding World created by JK Rowling.
This is a little chap is called a Niffler.
"Fluffy, black, and long-snouted, this burrowing creature has a predilection for anything glittery.....they are often kept by goblins to burrow deep into the earth for treasure."
