Hogwarts In A Bottle - 40 hours

Hello again!

I stayed with Hogwarts until the end of February but didn't quite manage to finish the ten hours. But I have now! I've started on the actual picture and progress has been quickened by the background being mostly made up of half stitches.

Here's where I left off:

And now:

And the full piece:

If you look closely about 1/3rd in from the left at the bottom there's a small triangle of bluey-grey - that's the castle turret beginning to appear!

According to my calculations, I'm just under a quarter of the way through. This might be a little bit of an overestimate but has made me think that maybe it's time to put in some of the backstitching. So that's the first thing I'll do when I return to it.

Take care,
Rachel x

It's hard to imagine this is the 1/4 point! The backstitching will be fun to see; I'm always amazed at how it brings a piece to life, even if it's just a cork for now haha :D

Looking good, for a bottle! Great idea to do the backstich now, you will thank yourself later.
