Spring Box Top: Finished

Y’all, I am back! I had my mutant parathyroid glands removed last week, and I already feel a hundred million times better! Hurray for not being sick! Wow, what a difference! Remember, y’all, high calcium is BAD but you can fix it and be better than ever in under a week if you have a good experienced surgeon.

ANYWAY, where was I? I was working on this gorgeous beautiful hardanger pattern! I finished it, and it is just lovely.

The white is a silk perle thread. I used a larger size thread than the pattern suggested, which creates some interesting dimensional effects. As I mentioned before, the variegated floss is from The Gentle ArtΒ and the embroidery pattern is from The Victoria Sampler. They have a brand new Summer Box pattern, which is awfully pretty as well.

So glad to be back, y’all!

    I love the squares (I don’t know the Hardanger term) in the dark blue/green. Such a delicate piece with such intense colours πŸ™‚

    I love this one, the colours are gorgeous – I love blue so it’s a bit of a no-brainer. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I would really appreciate an email to tell me what your symptoms were etc as I have had problems with parathyroid in the past but my current doctor isn’t very interested. Keep going on the hardanger, it looks fantastic.

    Nice to have you back, Hannah! I was thinking of you a couple of days ago and wondering where you were! I thought you were still slogging through the dissertation. Love this Hardanger pattern and agree that the larger thread gives interesting texture.

      Well, I haven’t finished my dissertation, but I think it will go much faster now that I’m not being poisoned by my own parathyroids. Less slogging and more working πŸ™‚
