Hardanger - Reinhard's Choice, Wanda's Colors New Piece

 I finished the 2nd piece in this series.  My plan was to make 9 of them and sew them together to make a really neat table piece.
 It turned out pretty nice and I love the colors.  There is just one thing wrong......

As you can see, even though the two pieces are stitched exactly the same, they aren't the same.
This was a study in the differences in fabric.  I never really thought about the "Delve and Woof" or whatever it is called (Susan....what is it called??) but I just know that is what is causing the different shapes and sizes.

I used my best Belfast Linen on the blue one and just a plain old "Linen" made in China on the red one.

I am on "Hardanger pause" now. My next piece(s) will be back to the roots, so to speak.
No Susan....NOT that far back!! It's not needlepoint..ha ha. I was struck with a Blackwork idea and am busy designing.

Warp and Weft ... the two perpendicular directions used when weaving any sort of fabric! The piece looks great anyway. Can't wait for the Blackwork design!
