And power-hungry Slytherin loved those of great ambition

Finally! The Slytherin section of the Hogwarts Crest has taken the longest by far. The snake is  the most intricate animal of the four and filling is a lot faster than constantly counting. Add that to excessive amounts of frogging which led to me to want to bead instead of stitch. It turned out very nice however. All of the house sections are now complete leaving the, frankly, boring parts left. I'll do the Latin banner across the bottom next.

I have much to do in the meantime though. I just found out I was invited to a baby shower two weeks from now. I will likely dig out some waste canvas for a onesie or a bib.
 
Skein count: 2 black (#310), 1 medium topaz (#783)

OMG my mind is blown. That is awesome. I wish to make stuff like this in the future sometime. I still lack a ton of colors (only have about 90 at the moment).

I'm not much of a HP fan, but I love heraldic designs of all kinds, and your crest looks awesome!
