Frustrated with Geraniums. Instead I picked up an old hardanger project to finish. It’s been lying around for a few years. Time to finish it off, get it off the frame, and move on…maybe back to Geraniums.
Also pulling out old course notes to look over. Some interesting ideas and exercises to either redo or do for the first time! I think I need to make a list of things to do. Just putting some more sketches on backing for hooking would be constructive.
I have a busy couple of days coming up. I have company this evening and we have company this weekend. I plan to squeeze in some rug hooking and my blog posts. 🙂
Later… I had someone ask for more information on this piece. This is hardanger embroidery from the Hardanger Fjord region of Norway. This particular piece is a variation of the Intermediate course in hardanger with the Embroidery Association of Canada. I did not like the design of their piece so I modified it considerably for my tastes. When it is all finished I will take it off the scroll frame and show you all a full picture of it. It is done in Caron Watercolour threads, hardanger thread, silk thread, pearls, Swarovski crystals, and glass seed beads.
