yes, for the third time, "book" is in the title twice because for the third time, I've made a book-like needle book.  Grin

this one was for the OTHPT (One Tiny Harry Potter Thing) swap.  my partner's favorite book is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, so I knew I had to recreate the cover into a cross stitch pattern.  I made it up from a Dumbledore sprite and a Harry Potter sprite that korinchan made.  then I found a sprite of a chalice and turned it into the basin that the locket was in.  lastly, I found a background that was similar to the book cover.  and here you have it:

cover:


spine:


even though I nearly make my fingers bleed while making these, I'm totally addicted!  Grin

thank you both!

the one thing I never had to make mention of before is how hard it is to stitch with black floss on black Aida cloth.  this was the first time I had to do it.  I never want to do that again.  Undecided  when I would mention that I was making mistakes while stitching this, it was usually because I put a black stitch in the wrong place.  I had to tear out the section between Dumbledore and Harry.  >_<  but in the end, as always, it was worth it.  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

well, the actual cover of the book is done in shades of green, so I had to do as much green as I could for this.  Grin

this is the reason why I buy so much floss.  I have at least 2 skeins of each color and at least half of all of the colors that currently exist.  I buy whatever shades peak my interest just in case I need to make something like this.  I seriously have enough floss to start my own store!  Cheesy
