Draco Dormiens

I have been putting a lot of hours into my Hogwarts Crest of late. Here is an update, my Muggles. I finished half of the banner; Draco Dormiens meaning "sleeping dragon." I think. I only took Latin I, sorry. ♥ I'm so happy JK Rowling is giving us Pottermore. As if I need an excuse to reread the series again. Will I ever get enough or will something replace Harry Potter in my heart? I doubt it...

I really love how vivid the colours are. It's such a simple pattern but very gorgeous in person, if I do say so myself. It doesn't look anything like the raw image in this post which is a bit dark and dreary.
 Skein count: 3 black (#310), 1 topaz (#728), 1 medium topaz (#783)
