This week and next week will be a bit crazy with Christmas and New Year. I probably won’t be posting until next year, although I’ll definitely be finishing the stitch stop and roll blanket (more on that in a few weeks).
Until then, I’d like to share with you my latest quick Christmas present.
To go with that, I have made a PDF of small patterns you can use if you want to make your own earrings.

A very happy Christmas to all of you!
Hello lovely readers!
I have finally completed my robes for Hogwarts, and just in time as well for my visit of the Warner Bros. studios on Monday. I really could not be more excited!
Forgive me for the poor quality of the pictures, I have been struggling with finding enough light.
Since last time, a few adjustments were made. I have added, of course, the crest but also a button and elastic band to keep the robes closed. I have also finished binding the sleeves properly and I have finished sewing the blue lining in place.
I’m very happy with how the crest turned out, the back stitching just makes a huge difference. To attach it, I used fabric glue to hold it in place and then whipped stitched all the border. It seems pretty solid but I guess only time will tell!
I hope you had a great week!
Happy Friday lovely readers!
I will soon be visiting the UK and while we are there we have planned a visit of the Harry Potter theme park. As you may know, I’m a HUGE Hp fan, so, in the spirit of my upcoming trip, I have made a few preparations.
First off, I finished my Hogwarts robes, which I made for our Harry Potter Halloween party last year. I took this test to know which house I belonged to, and I got Ravenclaw!
The robes were wearable for Halloween but I wanted to improve them a bit, so I put binding on the sleeves and I added a button and some elastic band to close it off. I also needed my house crest so I started stitching it on 14 count aida, using this graph found on Pinterest.
I changed up the colours a bit and this is where I’m at.
I also acquired some Hogwarts book as you can see, just to be ready for when I finally go there (after all, I’m a Ravenclaw and we like to read ahead!).
I also made up this layout for an embroidery project I have in mind.
I used a bunch of HP related symbols and phrases and put them all in a heart. Oh, and did I mention I LOVE Harry Potter yet?
Now, back to stitching, I haven’t yet found a way to enchant my needle to work on its own.
