Hardanger is an embroidery openwork having elaborate symmetrical designs created by blocks of satin stitches within which threads of the embroidery fabric are removed.
Having taken the first step and decided to learn Hardanger embroidery, let me reassure you that it is every bit as difficult as it appears! I’ve done almost as much unpicking as I have done stitching since I started learning how to do it. Goodness knows what is going to happen once I start cutting. LOL
That’s not to say that I’m giving up. No siree ( Bob)! I’m not a quitter.
I’m going to continue working on my practice piece and then, when I’ve mastered it, I’m going to join my group of ladies down at Colours Down Under doing this beautiful piece of work from Nordic Needle.
Whatever experimental stitching you are doing, I wish happiness & laughter to one and all,
