Now I can finish the set!!

I am so crazy excited that my last piece of 32ct carrot linen came in to day so I can now finish the "Bootiful Needle Set."  Working on the other pieces in this set has, so far, been one of my most enjoyable stitching projects.  Learning to make the buttonhole corner stitches that end up being the ruffle was so fun!  The last piece, the needle book, has more of them than the other two pieces did, so I'm really excited to get going on them!

I also got some more work done on the Quidditch Pitch over the weekend.  I'm excited to get some progress in on my Harry Potter themed pillow set, so when I pulled this out to take the picture for my previous post, I didn't want to put it away.  I finished the Slytherin seating tower and also filled in the Ravenclaw one with one color of blue that I didn't have when I started the pattern.  Now only my personal fave - the Hufflepuff tower to go.  Then it will have a Golden Snitch flying over the goals that I'm going to stitch in metallic thread. It also made the perfect on-the-go project one day when I was in the car since it's so small and portable.  

I've stitched just a tiny bit on the dragon as well, but I'll wait until I have more done before sharing another picture of it.


  1. Your projects are coming along so nicely. I really love that orange fabric. Wishing you a day filled with blessing and lots of time to stitch, too. :)

  2. I love the Halloween set. It has such an elegant quality to it.

  3. So glad your fabric arrived--I can see why you are anxious to do the remaining pieces of the Halloween set! The first one turned out beautifully :)

  4. Beautiful work! And glad you finally received your fabric. : )
