Hardanger finish

Hi Everyone,

Not much embroidery done this week, but I did get some photos taken of my Hardanger table mat which I in fact finished a few weeks ago.

Started just before Christmas, the HAL Ateneo by Mamen at Carpacar.  I blogged about my start here.

After completing satin stitch kloster blocks, a tiny square stitch done in diagonal and a buttonhole edging, I cut the threads in the middle of the design.

This area was worked with wrapped bars and decorative Greek cross stitches and dove´s eyes.

Lots more dove´s eyes worked on the outer edging too

and then I cut around the buttonhole stitch edging which really seemed to take forever.

I decided to make a little matching scissor fob

for the tassel I followed Judy´s tutorial, something a bit different, thank you Judy, I like the tiny added detail.

Thank you for stopping by, until next week.

Fully Finished Gallery - March

Hi Everyone,

As soon as a new month commences, the days seem to start galloping by and its check-in day again for the Fully Finished Gallery SAL, hosted by Rachel at Ten Hour Stitcher.

This is a free design called Black Needles which can be found here at Ravenelle. I stitched the pattern twice a few years ago.

and after adding a few sparkly bits, one pattern got finished as a needlebook (photo below) whilst the other got discarded.

This month I rescued the remaining pattern and sorted out a piece of suitable batik and some odds and ends to make a similar finish.

I added some pretty sequins to give a splash of colour and repeated a tiny part of the pattern - without any bling this time - for the inside scissor pocket.

A piece of wool felt to accommodate some pins and needles and a small plain black button to close.

I look forward to visiting other blogs to see what finishes others have done.
Happy stitching.
