Finally Finished

This piece of Hardanger embroidery was on the go for about 7 years, and I am so pleased to say that it is finished!



It was put away for long periods of time, but this time I was determined to get it finished.




It is 18" x 29", on 22 count Hardanger fabric.


Since I finished one project, I started another one. Knitting with my hand spun wool.


We had another snow storm today (I thought I was done with shovelling, luckily this time I had help!).



The grey partridges had to dig deep for seeds.


These four were huddled together.


The storm cleared up in the evening and left great snow drifts.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Beautiful job! I was always scared to cut when I tried hardanger. But my pieces were nothing compared to yours, it's simply wonderful.

Hello. I am so glad to have found your blog. I have always done all sorts of needlework, but never had the courage to try hardanger. I am about retire in a couple of years and figured it was about time to learn. I just bought the DVD from Nordic Needle today and some supplies and cannot wait to get them and try it. I did a google search and found your blog. WOW...I will come back often to look at all your beautiful things. 7 years huh? Well, it will be a family heirloom for sure; it is just GORGEOUS. I am from Norwegian descent, but no one left in my family who knows how to do Hardanger anymore. I have become a follower to your lovely blog.
