harry potter cross stitch (part 2)

You might remember my last post about my Harry Potter cross stitch project (find it here). 

I have since finished and am happy to share them here with you. 

All finished and framed and hanging in my studio where I lovingly admire them each time I walk by.

Things I learned while finishing this project:
-cross stitch takes a long time
-I love Harry Potter way more than I should
-cross stitch takes a reeeeaaallly long time

Totally worth it though.

(These patterns are from weelittlestitches on etsy. I highly recommend this shop - they have great customer service and the cutest little patterns.)

I am ready to tackle another big project, but I am thinking embroidery this time. I am having a hard time picking a pattern and then I have to think about colors and fabric and then I get overwhelmed with all the decision making and end up in front of the tv with Gilmore Girls. Which is where I am now.

  1. I want to embroider too but I always get distracted by something else. Perhaps I'll start this week. :)

  2. I have never seen a single Harry Porter, nor read any of the books. I know, I'm like an anomaly. But regardless, your little cross stitches are so cute! Makes me almost want to give cross stitch a try.

  4. Hello Allison,
    Ahhh, I love to cross stitch. I started to cross when I was pregnant with our last child of four. You are so right it takes a long time to complete, I agree that the effort is worth the beautiful results. You did an awesome Job!

  5. No such thing as loving Harry Potter too much. These are amazing!!! (And I'm sure you don't need a reminder of exactly how I'm pronouncing "amazing," right?)

  8. Cute! Cross stitching does take a long time... it's why I haven't gone back to it in years. I do miss it, though.
