I'm Back!!

Yes, I've been away and visited Germany - I will have to post some photo's later.  But I did take some stitching with me, and I have just finished them.  Yes, that's right I stitched two Hardanger pieces and here they are.

Based on Hardanger Crystal 3 by Nordic Needle

Based on Hardanger Crystal 4 by Nordic Needle


I changed the needle weaving in the the middle on Crystal 3 and also added beads instead of crystals.  
The only thing missing on Crystal 4 are the crystals.  The threads I used are Anchor 1345, pearl cotton and stranded cotton.



Until next time, Happy Stitching

What lovely work! I really admire this talent. I bought some pearl cotton floss and had NO idea what Hardanger was...now I do.
