After almost a year and a couple hundred hours of stitching, the Hardanger I have been working on is finished! These pieces will be used for the blouse of a Norwegian Bunad costume. (I’m not sewing the blouse, I only stitched the Hardanger inserts.)
In case you’re wondering what a Bunad is, here’s a picture of one.
And here is my finished Hardanger. The cuffs for the blouse are on the left, the collar is on the right, and the placket in the middle is for the front of the blouse.
I’m feeling rather accomplished right now.
And tomorrow we return to cross stitch!
