WOYWW 107 - the one with yet more Hardanger....

Greetings all!

Just a quick one for me because it is late on Tuesday evening, and I'm tired.

Not much on my desk this week, just a Hardanger update.  We've been rather busy with house issues and then we found out one of Mr B's friends is in hospital with some rather serious leg issues.  Like, touch and go between one leg or two legs when she leaves.  The good news is that today they did some surgery which they wouldn't have done if the prognosis was bad, so that's made us much happier!  We  spent Monday evening at the hospital, and I popped in again on my way home tonight with stuff to keep her from being too bored.  Get well soon, H!

So, here's the desk.... if you're a newbie to this WOYWW lark go to Desk Dimensions where you can find enlightenment!


It's amazing the results you can achieve by using a flash, eh?

And here's the progress on the Hardanger...


Creeping along slowly, but getting there!  It's a bit scary snipping the fabric - I'm not so worried about cutting the wrong bit of cloth, as the green threads, but I seem to manage ok.

Well, last week I managed about 30 of you, and if this week cuts me a bit of slack, I hope to get round more.  Catch you on the blop...!!!

Impressive Hardanger - rather you than me doing the snipping.
Your desk looks to have some great storage ideas and is quite tidy.
Sorry to hear about the friend - hope she is ok and prognosis is good. Hugs Neet #9

Hope your friend is well soon. The hardanger is looking good, but bringing back nightmares from high school Home Ec classes.

nerllybird said...

I've never known anyone actually do any hardanger work before, it looks very precise, I don't blame you for being a bit worried about cutting the threads. Looking good, though!

Hope your friend is doing well, very scary situation to be faced with, had the same problem with my brother a couple of months back and luckily they did some groundbreaking new technique and he still has both legs.
Hardanger... I am going to have to google that word... but the embroidery squares are beautiful! LOL
Oh and the stamp 'I made this' that you covet is a Judikins number 2382 - I got it in my local scrap shop but i am sure you can find it online!!
