Guys!!! The KENDRA EXPRESS has returned to Hogwarts !!

Miss. Hermione Granger and our fave spider-loving groundskeeper !!
The two panels with arguably the most hair for one's patience to deal with !
Absolutely AWESOME job yet again Kendra !!!

Unfortunately house related stresses have been going down this week which have taken up a large chunk of my time and attention but the best news is that half the flooring is down yay for a glimmer of progress
In the meatime, I HAVE managed to pop up the pattern for Mary & Bert which is a little slice of fantastic-ness !!
I also have a video waiting to be edited and posted, so stay tuned for that too

"Practically Perfect In Every Way!"





"Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Mary
Mary makes your 'eart so light
When the day is gray And ordinary
Mary makes the sun shine bright!"

MARY POPPINS & BERT!!!
Started: 27TH APRIL 2012 - OH MY GOD HOW MORTIFYING!!!
Completed: 15th October, 2015
No. of Stitches: 31,040!
So... I finished Poppins and Bert 3 YEARS i've been working on this piece I say 'on', but really the crochet switch has been in the 'off' position on this one for most of that time I really can't believe it took this long to complete! Especially when I was so stoked to start it!
Let us jump in our DeLorean and scoot back to 2012 shall we?!?


Oh man... what the fudge is with the hair?!? What the hell was I striving for with that look?! Half-assed cheetah head?!?!? !!!
Feral hair styles aside... it seems as though I actually had a tiny inkling that this piece would take several years to finish! Bit sppoky eh ?!?
I actually popped on the film as I was finishing the last 5 rows and ended up balling my eyes out! Either i'm super hormonal right now, or I just got whacked with a massive hit of nostalgia because I swear there were torrents of tears happening guys! So. Many Feels.


Such a BRILLIANT cast, perfect soundtrack, perfect scipt, SO MUCH HEART!! UGH.
I usually only lose it at the end with Bert's famous "don't stay away too long" line... oh man...excuse me one moment...just welling up a little bit here , but this last viewing, I was gone from the opening bars !!
It's incredible how powerful a film can be isn't it?!
I would like to say a massive "THANK YOU!!!" to those of you who have shared in the journey of this piece, be it as a recent new comer or as one of those who has been WAITING SINCE 2012!!! WE MADE IT!!!
I'm not sure what my plans are for this piece yet, but for now i'm more than happy to stare at it lovingly and re-live my fondest childhood memories



For anyone interested in the pattern, it will be available soon! So be sure to stop by over the next few days and have a quick look !!!
