Hardanger update

The buttonhole edge and cuttings were done for both pieces so next will be the weaving.


I've found this piece that i've started i think nearly ten years ago but not really like it as i don't know how to finish it off. Now, i'd like to find a way how to finish the edges so it can be use or else it will be a waste.





Last saturday, we took the kids for indoor karting as we have that one here on the island but not so big as the one in Zeeland. Chris wanted to try how it works, so we asked them to asked one of their friends to come along. Only Chris friend came as Grace friends were all out.
Below picture are Chris and Mels in action:



and here is Grace and dh. They've only taken one race which was about 12 minutes. If it wasn't soooo expensive we've probably had two race. It was 60 euro's for one race. So afterwards we took them to the swimming pool instead.


We have Max since sunday, glad the weather has been quite good the last days so we are having long walks with him. We have to bring him home tonight though as i have lots to do for hubby's birthday on saturday. But we will pick him up next week as he's booked to the trimming parlour on thursday.


Thank you all so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments on my previous post. Hope you all are having a good week.

Your hardanger is beautiful Mylene, I really hope you find a way to finish that piece, it would be a shame not to have it on display.

That hardanger piece is gorgeous. You just have to find a way to use it! I've never tried that technique... looks like too much patience required and the need for really steady hands when you cut.

Wendy said...

Oooh wow, you did a fantastic job on the Hardanger! It looks so nice.

Julie said...

I have no idea how to finish hardanger, but I hope you find a way, as it is too beautiful not to be enjoyed. :D

Doris said...

is a beautiful Hardanger work, I hope you find an application you like.

Max looks very happy

Your Hardanger is beautiful Mylene.
How about backing that large piece with a coloured fabric, as if you were making a cushion cover, but just closing the gap without stuffing it, if that makes sense

Karan said...

Your hardanger is beautiful Mylene. Looks like the karting was lots of fun. Max always looks so happy when he's visiting. :0)

Carin said...

WOW, you did a great job with your hardanger. What a patience!
It looks like they had a great time with karting. Did it ones myself - never again! I couldn't use my left arm for about 3 weeks. :)

Keep us posted about your hardanger finish!

Wat een leuke werkjes met Hardanger.
Ik zou het graag nog eens willen leren, ik vind het er altijd zo leuk uitzien.
Zeker in combinatie met gewoon borduren

Brigitte said...

Your Hardanger looks so pretty, I love pulled thread work like that. Your earlier finishes of Step into Spring and Flowers of Spring were lovely too, great spring pieces, so cheerful. Glad you had such a good time in Zeeland. Your trip with the racing and all looks a lot of fun.

Stephie said...

Your Hardanger is beautiful Mylene, thats something I have never tried. Maybe I will at some point.
Happy Stitching

Did you buttonhole stitch the outside edging? if so you can cut it and use the piece as a table cloth/decorative cloth. Beautiful stitching.

Mylene,
Your Hardanger pieces are so very pretty, it's good you decided to finish them.

Sandra said...

Mylene, your hardanger is very elegant, as Sheila said, you can cut the outside and use it as a decorative cloth. Take a look here:
