Hardanger cross

I decided to dabble a little in hardanger once again.

I found a freebie cross online and decided to change it a little.

I decided to try the blanket stitch on the outside of the cross...

Grant it....

I am still a beginner but I think I did real good.... just need to figure out how to do the inverted corners better.

What do you think?
