A long overdue catch-up post is here! July has definitely been a busy month, and let's go back to Week 1 of Magical Stitches.
If you want to check the original post, you can find that here. Our tasks were to stitch 300 stitches each on something boring, something out of rotation for over 5 months, and something without a face. I decided to stitch all 900 stitches on AAN Maple Leaf and got quite a bit done. It started here:
AAN Maple Leaf
stitched 2 over 1 on 14 ct unknown aida with WDW Fire
Week 2 - we were visiting 12 Grimmauld Place, Sirius Black's family home and therefore we had to stitch 500 stitches on 2 of 3 possible WIPs. We had to link our WIP list as well. Our choices were WIP 1, 2 or 12 on the list. I decided on 1 and 2, which were See Ya Later Alligator and Kiss for a Snowman.
543 stitches later:

stitched 2 over 2 on 28ct Nuriel's Forest by Chromatic Alchemy with stash threads
WIP 2 was here:
and 501 stitches later:
Kiss for a Snowman by Dimensions
stitched 2 over 1 on 16ct aida with kit threads
Week 3 - I had posted about needing help here if you'd like to refresh your memory on this post. Basically we had to stitch on things Professor Umbridge likes, which included kittens, the colour pink, tea, RULES, and STRICT.
Leonore saved my bacon by mentioning that the Universal Monsters SAL has a cat in it, and I had forgotten, so I stitched on that one for kittens and for RULES since it starts with "U" and the design had to start with a letter from that word. It's now here:
For tea, they decided leaves were allowed, so I pulled out Maple Leaf again:
This is a little farther along because I had used it for the Stitchy Quest for the one ring as well. It's practically finished really.
For pink I was able to use Kiss for a Snowman again and moved it along to here:
and lastly, for a designer that starts with a letter from STRICT, I chose Charting Creations Princess and the Dragon:

stitched 1 over 1 on 28ct Amarinthine by Chromatic Alchemy with DMC 310
Week 4 - this week we're in detention because we keep speaking out in Umbridge's class like Harry Potter. We were to stitch 1000 stitches on something with words or 1000 stitches in black or blue (ink colours). I decided to pull out Butterfly Quote again which was last here:
and after 860 stitches (missed out on 1000 because of migraine Sunday)
Butterfly Quote by Jodyri Designs
stitched 2 over 1 on 14ct aida with Jodyri and WDW
It's a busy week again, so I'll try and post the Magical Stitches info and keep up with the Stitchy Quest as well. Thank you as always for all your help in keeping up with the homework!
