I had a really successful time stitching on Hogwarts last week so have another update already! It's hard to believe I'm already 100 hours in... 100 hours! Doesn't time fly.....
As hoped, I filled in the gap between the buildings on the left and the right with the addition of more gloomy sky, a turret and some roofs. As you can see, I tend to jump around a lot when stitching so am not at all bothered by missing chunks, but I do like that it looks a bit tidier now.
And the full piece:
I'm quite amazed at how well-defined the buildings are without the backstitching; it's so easy to distinguish one from another and pick out the windows, etc. Next time, before delving into more blues and browns, I'll be adding lots of backstitching. We all know what a difference backstitching can make but no doubt my jaw will still drop at the difference!
