this is probably the biggest cross stitch piece i've done and the first one (that i can remember) that wasn't from  a kit. i still need to find a frame for it because the one i have now is just a smidge too small.

the pattern's from the leaky cauldron site, the ravenclaw crest version 5 by little mojo.

i have a few other harry potter ideas i want to cross stitch, i just have to wait on my joanns order.  Undecided

Holy Cow that's incredible! I don't have the patience for a cross stitch that big, but yours is gorgeous!

That's amazing!  I am totally in awe of your patience.  Shocked  I want a Slytherin one now, but I know I'd give up like a quarter of the way through, hehe.

HOW did you not mess up your hands?
I'm partway through a largish project myself and I swear it's giving me tendinitis.
Props on the super mega-ultra great work!!

So what if I like to put on a fancy hat and tutu while I'm baking and pretend I'm a Keebler elf? You just don't know how to have fun.

thanks guys!  Grin

it really wasn't that hard, i just went page by page doing little sections at a time. i went through periods of "omggottagetitdoneNOW!!!" and throwing to the side. the thing that killed me were the sections where it was one color with no kind of break, like spaces or whatever. those were so BORING!!!  Roll Eyes

Fellow Ravenclawer checking in!

Woot! I really love this. It's so beautiful and it shows what it stands for, without being too much 'in the face'. I really want to do one for myself now, if I wouldn't have so much work already  Roll Eyes.

needlework on the leaky cauldron. i had used version 5 of the ravenclaw crest. if you want the "official" looking hufflepuff one, version 5 looks like your best bet.

thanks.  Grin go with version 5 *hinthint*  Cheesy
if anyone is looking for the gryffindor one, go with version 6. the hogwarts one is version 3. they're all by little mojo.
