Progress has been made. The stitching is complete now for the Betsy Morgan Etui box. I have enjoyed the stitching - both the linen count and the silk floss. The only substitution I made was for DMC for the squirrel as I just could not get the prescribed overdue thread to come out looking less than patchy or stripey. For me a grey squirrel should be a uniform shade of grey so I chose but now am wondering if I did not choose well. Still it is what it is.
I'm getting that hardanger itch again so will have to go through my stash of charts. I don't want to make a doily so will be looking for some other project that will scratch the itch and be more useful that the infernal Hardanger Mat. A bag? An apron? One can have too many of those also. Maybe a notebook cover? Even in this computer age I use a lot of notebooks. I do need a new cover for my toaster but Hardanger seems a bit OTT for that:-).
