I have all the ingredients ready and am about to start construction of the Hardanger Bag. Well, I will start it on Tuesday which is a public holiday here so I'll have plenty of time.
So with all my ingredients ready I will start construction.
I have begun the arduous task of cutting the edge of the Hardanger Christmas Angel but at one-thread-at-a-time it is a slow process. I don't want to slip and cut the stitching so only do a little at a time. Meanwhile I continue the search for a suitable "body". With some months left until next Christmas there is no hurry.
As I am not anxious to return to Arabian Nights too quickly I have traced the X onto fabric to begin a box top for Great-Niece number four. Her older sister got a box for her first birthday. X will be two this year so I am already running late :-)
