Hogwarts Crest cross stitch

Here is my current project, I saw this picture on pinterest and knew that I wanted to start making it right away. Jasmine has over 2 years until her 11th birthday, but we want to do a Harry Potter themed birthday using the first book.

Which started me looking for the pattern, which I did find here

I also found Scienceandart's modification ideas on Deviant Art, which you can see here

I didn't like that Hufflepuff's background color was blue, and that Ravenclaw's was a lighter blue, so I started making modifications to the chart in my head.

So, here are my supplies, except I forgot to get a background yellow for Hufflepuff.

Here is about 3 hours of work. I was thinking here that I was going to regret that upper left serif on the right side of the H. I wanted to change the H color, because I didn't want it to seem that Hogwarts would favor Gryffindor. So, I wanted to make it look a bit more like stone.

Here is almost 6 hours of work. Yeah, I am regretting that corner of the H, even more so now that the lighter grey is filled in.

And here is just over 10 hours. I went back and changed the color to black on that upper right side of the H, I think it looks much better now.
