Voila - the one handed finish!

I was inspired by Hohla and Carol R to do this hardanger "humbug" - but let me tell you one handed is not easy! Anyway despite obvious imperfections it is finished and I am sure will find a home on my Christmas tree. Those of you who add beads to edges and finishes please write a tutorial as to how you do it! These gave me great grief. And for those of you who want to try your own this is from The Gift of Stitching December 2007.
Have a great day.

  3. Gorgeous ornament! After reading the instructions fo this one though, I don't think I could stitch it two handed let alone one handed.
