Holy moly......

Another installment of Hardanger updates!!!

Rene from ILCS is teaching us how to do hardanger if you did not know that already.

She had us do a practice heart so that we could do the cutting on a piece that did not matter before doing the cutting on the piece that we have been working on for weeks.

Anyway, I did great on the practice heart. (no mistakes or boo boo's)


So I decided to continue on to lesson 4 - the cutting.
Anxious and very confident.... I proceeded to snip snip snip..... (reminder to self..... don't be too anxious or extremely confident)

Unfortunately, not only did I accidentally cut a fabric thread that should not have been cut but I also cut a stitched thread.

So I told myself to just relax and I mended the material thread that should not have been cut and I replace the one stitch of thread that was cut......

I think I did awesome because I cannot see nor do I remember where the boo boo's are.....
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Wow....you did awesome....I am so proud of you.

When I did my very first hardanger I did not cut the wrong thread at all. Don't ask me how I manage not to do that but I was really good.

Congratulations on your WIP Hardanger First Piece...good for you.....looks so pretty too.

Take care & Happy Stitching

I think this turned out wonderfully! I love the green that you used. Beautiful!

I really need to get my cross stitching unpacked so that I can start up again.
