Hardanger

This a larger Hardanger embroidery piece that I have done. This is one of my favorite Hardanger pieces, I love the white on white. It is 14" x 14". (It does lay flat in real life, I had it lying over the back of a dinning room chair and it put a little ripple in it.) I am working on my last two journals and will post them soon.

I've done a little hardanger but didn't handwash my pieces. Eventually the machine washing tore them up. I love using variegated threads to work up the pieces.

This is a very nice piece. I love the lacy bands.

Your hardanger embroidery is beautiful! It is so even in its stitching. I love white on white too. :-)
