Crazy January Challenge 2011 - Project 5 Progress

Another first for me today, tried a bit of hardanger! It's all new to me and the kit I have is rather awful (either that or I'm completely rubbish :D)

I would have preferred a more even fabric to learn on but this is linen so it's hard to keep the stitches lined up, I'm enjoying it apart from that even though it's full of mistakes already! I've finished the inner border today, it will eventually have some kloster blocks and cut pieces and an outer border the same as the inner one.

Tomorrow should be more exciting as I'm starting my Mario Sampler! woohoo!

It's looking good already - you've made a great start :)

I've never tried hardanger, but I'd love to - it's the thought of cutting out all the little bits that scares me though!

Yes the cutting is going to be the scary bit for me too! it's going to feel weird cutting holes everywhere! Wish I'd had another kit for my first go though :)
