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.

I love the fact that you are willing to try new materials! Just imagine if you absolutely had to use only what was on hand. You would still be stitching!
