August Progress on DSDUCJFC 2015 Pieces

Hello all!

With the school holidays in full swing it is no surprise that I had a reduced amount of stitching time during August. But I still achieved enough to be satisfied.

Unfortunately I didn't finish a project as my attention was completely focused on the four Harry Potter crests. This is how they currently look (with proper before and after photos now that we have our computer back!)

Gryffindor from 4th February
continued with the borders

Hufflepuff from 11th February
filled in the top right quadrant

Ravenclaw from 18th February
finished the crest border and started stitching the background

Slytherin from 25th February
started and finished the little bit of crest above the name banner

I think that Ravenclaw will definitely be completed in September but I am unsure as to whether or not I shall be working on the other three. I really can't decide which Challenge pieces (if any!) to pick up next so may take a month's break from them. Who knows?!?

But in the meantime it's onto Lizzie Kate September's stamp.

See you soon with a finish... or two!

Take care,
Rachel x

These look great! I have been trying to buy the set but the shop was closed on etsy for ages and now it has reopened I can't find these charts at all! I have enough to be getting on with anyway.
I am starting some new things in September - it has always felt like new year to me anyway with the new school year starting so it's a time for new starts!
