Harry Potter Weekend

So, as you probably know if you have children, or if like to read books (or if you watch the news) the latest and final instalment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released on Saturday. I therefore spent Friday reading the sixth book (so I was completely reminded of all the action and plots leading into the final book) and then spent all of Saturday (until about 2am) reading the new book. Needless to say, it was great. I think you either love Harry or you don't, and I am definitely in the former camp.
So I haven't much stitching to update you on. I did get out my needle on Sunday and lazily stitched away in front of the British Open coverage, which was another wonderful event this weekend given that H is over the moon that Padraig Harrington has won the Open for a jubilant Ireland! In between shots I worked away on the tin top that I am doing, and which is now complete and ready to finish. I need to pick up a few bits and bobs for finishing, which I will probably do that later in the week. For now, here is a photo of the finished stitching:

Shepherd's Bush - Gathered Hours Pincushion (to be finished as tin top)
stitched on 32ct Kiwi Illusions Bourbon 'n' Cola from Country Stitch
using suggested DMC

Once that was completed, I picked up Love Is Patient, as I'd not stitched it on Friday, and it's getting quite close to finishing. And a finish means a new start! So I've stitched all the border details, leaving only the verse to complete plus one flower inside the heart border. I should finish this in no time. Such a lovely design, I realy enjoy this one. (I know, I say that all the time.)

Happy stitching to you all - our thoughts are with those in the UK who are affected by the terrible flooding.
