Small Finish

After cleaning house all day, I was determined to do some stitching this evening and I wanted to finish something! There were a total of four different Hardanger ornaments in the pattern booklet from Satin Stitches (Donna M. Olson). I completed the first three a few weeks ago and had started the fourth one - tonight I finished it!

These are quick to stitch and would be really quite easy even for a novice at Hardanger. I think that I will probably make more of these between now and Christmas to give as gifts.

I may try to finish another smaller project tomorrow night - we'll see.

Here's to a good week of stitching!

I like the new hardanger ornament - very cute. I really like how it's got a contrasting colour in the centre - really changes the look. Happy dancing for ya :-)
