February Hardanger

I stitched my February hardanger piece from Nordic Needle. 

I have been working on The Queen’s Treasure Chest by Cat’s Whiskers but when I went to take pictures a few minutes ago the camera batteries went dead on me.  So I’ll post pictures of that later. 

I am going on a business trip to Toronto this Sunday and I come home Monday night.  I am going up early Sunday morning so that I can get some quality museum time in before 5pm (all the museums close at 5 on Sunday).  I am going to the Textile Museum of Canada and then to the Art Gallery of Ontario where the King Tut exhibit is.  I can take pics at the textile museum but not at the art gallery.

  1. Hi. Not sure if you will reply as your blog is old, but just wanted to ask something about Hardanger ornie. I completed the first ever Hardanger in 50 years of embroidery and cross stitch (lol) and want to back the design so that I can hang it without seeing the back. I know I would have to leave spaces for the openings of the kloster blocks to show through, but is there some way besides making a true ornament to back the Hardanger in a flat manner. Thank you so much. 🙂

    1. Whenever I have finished a hardanger ornie I put a contrasting colour underneath to show through the open areas. I finish it like any other ornament. I don’t finish it in a way that leaves the openings clear from front to back. It depends on the design. What is the pattern?
