A Hardanger Happy Dance.....

I finally finished my hardanger Christmas tree.

My oldest daughter told me I was not allowed to make it all red because Christmas trees are green.

I did realize while I was doing the stars that I put in 2 kloster blocks that were not supposed to be there. So I did take them out so I could put the correct stitch in.

I think it turned out great.... although, did not really get the hang of the doves eyes until I was 5 rows from the bottom.

I did refuse to take the wrong ones out just because this was a learning piece and others need to see that everyone makes mistakes.

I think it looks great, especially for a learning piece. If you didn't tell me, I would never know that you are not an expert at hardanger.
