At the moment I'm stitching daily on my blue hardanger project. Unfortunately, I've not had as much time as I'd like to devote to said stitching, but I'm enjoying it just the same. I thought I would share a little of it's progress with readers. I have 11 of these squares on point in the centre of my table runner. I'm hoping the woven work will track over and under around each of these.
Perhaps this close up shot will show more of the Greek/Maltese Cross [??] weaving. I won't cut the centres of the remaining squares until almost the end, as I'm doing a fine spider web in those cut out areas. Obviously no pressing at this stage, so this is a rather crumpled offering. Lots more work to go just on this centre section, then I'll think about the outer area. I'm not sure yet of the exact dimensions, something around 40cm by 130cm. I think [hope] there will be enough at either end of the fabric to make drink coasters to match [one full square including the Greek Cross weaving].
Now, I must away to some more stitching before it gets too hot. I also can happily report we have two Tawny Frogmouth babies, so cute at the moment.
My thoughts are with those who are experiencing flooding in Victoria. It seems the weather has a little more in store for us yet.
