Back to my favourite

After a marathon of Christmas ornaments (finishes to follow later) I'm back to my favourite - hardanger.
However this is to be a tote bag so the fabric is a coarse 30 count linen and the threads are Perle #3 and Perle #5.
At the moment this is side one but hopefully it will look good when done. The jury is out on what colour lining I should use.  The blue of the blanket it is lying on for the photo isn't satisfactory.  Any suggestions?

  1. This is gorgeous. I think a blue moire would look nice.

  3. What a pretty piece of work. And I think the blue looks good but that is the hardest thing for me...choosing colours.

  4. Lovely hardanger. What colour is the jacket you wear most often that will be seen with the bag?
