Hardanger first try!

So I've finally decided to learn hardanger!
I've bought a book with big pictures to learn it and tried a simple doily, which looked like this before being cut!

And then I've cut it, and with too much confidence, because near the end of it I wasn't paying too much attention on where I was cutting....and the it came!
Cut in the wrong place!


I was lucky, though, the mistake can be arranged by changing the pattern and using fantasy!
It's been parked now, I've lost the mood for working on it, I don't know if you understand...

I'll try and finish it before the end of the year...along with a long list of other things...Help!

Silkweaver fabrics and Mirabilia first time!

Last Thursday I received my first Silkweaver fabrics! Really amazing, I love them!


I've just started working on Dusk, on which I'm stitching Mirabilia's Forest Goddess, my first Mirabilia!

On Midas Touch I'll stitch Royal Holiday later this year.

Happy Dances!

During January I've worked hard on Calendar Cats, and the results came along!
September, October and November Cat are now finished while March and May will soon follow!

Before...


...and after


However after focusing for a whole month on this piece I get a little bored so I've put it aside in February, and put some stitches on Memories and Paradigm Lost until last Saturday.
