Hardanger Journey…….Cont’d

Hi followers,

Okay, so I didn’t post last week only because I didn’t have very much to share at that time.  I’m sure you don’t want to read a post of me just babbling on about nothing much.

I’m still working on my Hardanger lessons and enjoying every moment. I think I’m getting better, I sure hope so after all my hard work.  I did manage to find 2 used books off Amazon which give me some great instructions and projects.  Lots of smaller designs which I like since I don’t think I’d ever be able to complete a larger design such as a table cloth or runner.  I also dug out a needlework frame that my neighbor had given me years ago. It’s been sitting in my basement for years until last week, for some strange reason, I remembered I had it.  I dug it out, put it together and now wonder why I hadn’t thought about this before.  Using the stand is, by far, so much easier.  What a knucklehead I am!!

This is my Rocky Giraffe Utility Stand for Crafts & Needlework by Marie Products.  Not sure how old it is but I think the company is not in business any longer.  I did see some for sale on eBay, etc.  This one was purchased at the Windsor Button Shop here in the Boston area for $46.00. probably back in the 1960’s.  I’ve since purchased a new hoop that fits better into the clamp.   I’m lovin’ it!!

And here is a sneak peek at the project I am working on now, a purple-ish butterfly motif.2016-11-10-02-30-15

Next week I will share some Thanksgiving CASE cards I made up a few months back.

So another week to go down in history, for many reasons!!

So long for now,

Linda
