Well, folks, I owe a whole lot of people thank you notes. So, I went and splurged on the Hardanger Card Club from Nordic Needle. It’s a lot upfront, since they aren’t offering it in monthly installments anymore. On the other hand, there’s twelve of them! Hurray! And it’ll be nice to have some small projects I can actually finish. Like this one! Done in only 1 weekend 🙂
This one is a whole lot more pink than I usually go for. I love the design though! It’s pink twisted silk (Elegance Silk Perle #8) from Rainbow Gallery. Fortunately the other cards aren’t nearly as pink. I worked a fancy hem around the edges so it can be taken out from the card. I’m going to pin it in instead of taping it.
Here are the instructions for the hem, although Carolyn wasn’t kidding about it taking a long time. I got tired after the first row and stopped! I think I’ll try a new hem on each card. I’ve been looking around, and I understand usually you have to fold the edges over twice and mitre the corners before hemming. This will be an adventure! Anyway, here is the back of it.
Finally, here’s an in-progress shot.
Sure is nice to finish something! Y’all can expect eleven more installments in this series, though not all in a row. Oh gosh, did I really just add 11 projects to my list? Oops.
