A truly gorgeous example of HARDANGER today. LuAnn sent me this recently. She had corresponded a few times telling me about this project she was working on for her son and what a beauty it is – don’t you agree?
LuAnn stitched this project for her son. He chose colour #137 because of the similarities to the colours he saw while travelling in Peru. It will be framed as a wall hanging for his home.
The fabric is 22 count cotton hardanger fabric. She used both size 5 and size 8 perle cotton, colour #137. The size 8 is used for all the thread wrapping. The design is a pattern by Lillill Thuve taken from a Swedish hardanger book. It is not in English so she managed to following the diagrams to complete it – well done LuAnn!!! She tells me she started the same pattern in the early 80’s which remains as a UFO. Well, I’m certainly delighted to see this one finished 🙂
Hope all of you enjoy seeing this as much as I do. Thanks so much LuAnn for sharing this lovely project.
