Unlike the Tin Man

Unlike the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz,  I have a heart and hearts aplenty on my Hardanger Angel.   The foundations are all laid now with just the lace work left to do so I am taking a break.   This is the bottom border of the gathered skirt - the gap between the kloster blocks will be lacework.

My next project is to put some more flowers on the floral initial -  primroses, cyclamen, lavender and something yellow, maybe some forsythia?  
And then I really must get back to my knitting.   One sleeve, a left front and a right front and a collar to go and already it is July.   The winter will soon be over so I need to get going on that.  
So much to do, so little time.   Yesterday I had a 10 hour day but today was able to finish at my standard 8 hours and so got home a little earlier.   However I spent an hour writing an old fashioned letter with pen and paper which has taken care of most of my evening.
Back with some progress tomorrow (or the next day...)


  1. Ten hours is a long day Margaret, glad you didn't have two in a row. In some ways I can see why you enjoy hardanger more than cross stitch.

  2. You are heart-ful (if that is the opposite of heart-less) indeed!

  3. You are creating an angel, Margaret. It will be lovely, I'm sure.

  4. Lovely work on your angel. I get tired after an ordinary length day now, I am not used to working full time any more!

  5. Beautiful stitching. I hope you find time for your knitting.
