Sumptuous Surfaces - Week 3 and Harry Potter

I've been working on my Sumptuous Surfaces piece, as you can see.
Week 3 - beginning
Not too much done, as we have been working on the house... again... Just trying to recover from the past few weeks, sorting and rearranging. We are continuing to pare down a little here and a little there...

sorry, got sidetracked!

Anyway, I've just been using #3 and #5 perle cotton to start by using buttonhole wheels as trees and huge french knots to represent bushes. Lots more to do, of course, but it's a start.

I've also been trying to catch up on my Harry Potter reading. I only read about 1/3 of the way through the 5th book (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix) when we had to suddenly move to Phoenix and that's where everything stopped. So, I'm reading book #5 now, then on to #6 and the final book. It's too good a story to not finish so I'm determined to do it, even if it does cut into my stitching time!

Anyway, I'll be back in a day or so with a more coherent post... I guess I'm tired! ;0)

It is looking great. :-)

You could always get Harry as audio books, and listen while you stitch... It's looking lovely!
