So here's Hogwarts again. For this session I wanted to concentrate on the left hand side, stitching more sky and hoping to get down to the castle itself. I just about made it, although did leave cheeky gaps in order to do so!
I also added a bit more backstitching and am especially pleased with the moon. As coincidence would have it, I'm listening to the audio of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the moment (I don't think I've previously mentioned that I usually listen to the Harry Potter audio books when I stitch on this) and have just reached the chapter where Snape covers for one of Lupin's Defence Against the Dark Arts classes, taking advantage of the opportunity to teach the students about werewolves. How's that for perfect timing!
And this time:
And the full piece:
The bottom of the stitching just about marks the halfway point down the chart although, of course, not the half way point of the actual stitching. I'm now really looking forward to making progress on the castle itself. There's an awful lot of backstitching coming up, so watching the splodges of blues and browns turn into turrets, roofs, windows and walls will be immensely satisfying. I can't wait!
