Hardanger - Doily XVI

Doily or Coaster??? You decide!!

Believe it or not, I actually found a fabric I like....
Jobelin.  It is really nice for Hardanger.

No matter what I do, I can't get this picture turned around so
you have to look at it side-ways.  ha ha  I think maybe
Dad will use this as a coaster when he comes.  I have
one wine seems perfect!!!!

Hardanger - Springtime at the Frog Pond

This is my latest creation.  I really like it.  I like the name and I like how it fits the piece.  I like the colors.  What I didn't like is the material or fabric.  Again.  First of all, it is "only" 28 count.  It makes the stitching really big.  That in itself is annoying.  But what is REALLY annoying is the back.  It looks a mess but only because there is so much space between the blocks.  I don't know if it is all Evenweave but this particular fabric was really stiff, almost like a canvas.  The cutting was difficult and didn't turn out the way I like.  It's a happy piece though and has lots of different things to look at.

Hardanger - Doily XV

Even though this is on that very "slanted" material, I really like it.
Don't forget to click to enlarge!
I like the colors and the design which is my own

The edging is really pretty and very stable.

The colors all go really well together.

A ruler so you can tell the size.  It is actually a little
bigger than a doily but smaller than a table piece.

I proudly show you the back here!!!
