A few finishes to share...

So, this weekend was a very productive stitching weekend for me. For some strange reason I have really wanted to watch the Harry Potter movies lately. I'm not sure what started the whole interest, but I have been thinking about it for some time. Well, this weekend we watch all six movies. I got up Saturday morning and cleaned the house a bit (didn't sweep or vaccuum). At 10:00 a.m. I started the first movie and we watched them the rest of the day. This of course gave me plenty of stitching time. We finished the last movie at 3:00 a.m. Sunday morning.



So here are some of my finishes for the week. I actually finished this (CCN Joyful Summer) earlier in the week. I love the fabric I selected for this piece. I might finish this as a flatfold.


The big project for the all day Harry Potter marathon was Blackbird Designs Awake the Dawning Day. I have really struggled with this one for some reason. Once I got the house completely finished the rest of the pattern was pretty enjoyable. However, while watching the movies I did misspell a word and had to rip out some of my work.


The other finish I have is actually part of a bigger project. This is the bottom of the Just Nan When Barnabe Met Bella. There are a lot of color changes in this piece. So, I tried a different approach. I stitched only one color at a time and complete all the stitches for each color. It actually went very quickly that way. The top is a bit more detailed, but I hope to finish it in the next week or so.

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by...

I have stitched the Just Nan Biscornu it took me longer than I thought it would because of all the colour changes.
I love Harry Potter what a great way to spend the day stitching and watching movies.
