HAL Catchup

Tonight I have concentrated really hard and caught up on the two installments of A Confetti of Hardanger that were waiting to be done.
First was the Spiders Webs -  Abi Gurden gave really good instructions for these and I have more confidence now.

Second was a Struvor -  again brilliant instructions and I love this one!
This Hardanger- A- Long has been a wonderful way of gaining more confidence in the fillings that I avoided from fear.   And it has confirmed my love of this stitching too.   I foresee many more hardanger pieces in years to come.  I should really take photographs in daylight as these colours are far from true.
Anyway that's enough for tonight.  I need some beauty sleep.

  3. Beautiful work, so many interesting details. I can see why it could be intimidating, but definitely worth the extra effort. CJ in OK

  4. Looks wonderful Margaret! I've never heard of a Hardanger-A-Long before but it seems like a fun way to learn and improve upon Hardanger skills.
