Hardanger Christmas

A stitching post! Amazing! Well, I’ve finally gathered up my stitching mojo and pulled the supplies for July’s ornament: Hardanger Ornament by Nordic Needle from the 1999 issue of Just Cross Stitch. I’ve substituted DMC for the Rainbow Gallery Splendour and DMC #8 perle cotton for the Rainbow Gallery Elegance.

Yeah, I don’t have much done, but it is a start. And I’ve got, what, six more days? I can do it.

But, umm, see that pile of bits there? That is what I’ve picked out so far. I just can’t seem to count properly. At this rate, it will never be done.

And in hopes of keeping my stitching mojo around, I’ve also pulled the supplies and cut the fabric for TW’s Miniature Spring Sampler and I’ve cut the fabric for next month’s ornament. As I was doing this, I discovered that I am running very, very low (as in have a few small scraps and one 9″ x 14″ piece) of 28 count evenweave. Time for a small fabric order, I think.
