I am combining Hardanger with embroidery. The fabric is 28 or 32 Belfast Linen. No, it isn't evenweave...I didn't have any. The threads are varied, including Pearl Cotton 8 and 12 and also coton a broder 25 which is what I can get over here. I also plan to have some beading. Of course, the Hardanger cutting and finishing along with the beading will be the last I do. This is my own design. I've been working on it for months in my mind, on paper and also on model samples.
I don't think there is any right or wrong when depicting a Yei. I have drawn inspiration from many samples. If you want to see more, there are hundreds of Yei images available. Let me know what you think!
