Hardanger Card: February

Y’all, I finished another card! I usually avoid pastels, but this one is really pretty. It’s ThreadworX, the Teeka color. It’s the “February” card because it’s originally part of a twelve-month embroidery kit club from Nordic Needle.

Here is a work-in-progress shot:

I worked a border for this one in hem-stitching. I’m improving, but one of the corners had a little accident. I managed to stabilize it so it won’t unravel, but I might need to put a bead or a pin on top to cover it up.

If you take a look at the back, I think I could improve my technique for starting/ending threads for the hemstitching. Plus I need to get out the scissors and clip a few threads. But overall I am getting faster and faster!

    Very pretty. I love some of those pastel variegated threads by Threadworx. Where did you get the card blank from – it’s rather special?

    It’s really beautiful, your stitches look perfect to me

  4. Hemstitch grows really quickly once you get a rhythm going. It’s a great stitch!
