May giveaway! a small hardanger piece!!

Burda Hardanger magazine
size: 19cm x 19cm
Bellana fabric
DMC perle threads

Everyone is welcome for the draw, but please indicate if you want to be added for the draw and if possible to leave your
e-mail address so i know where to contact you. It will be open until wednesday, May 21st.

Joanie, i did seach for bloggers who does hardanger but haven't really find one that does lots of it. Perhaps, anyone who reads this will let us know or share their blog.

Thanks for all the ideas shared for finishing this spring buzz. I just completed it this evening into a pinkeep, and chosen the easiest way i can. And i need to take pictures how i made it without using the glue to share to a friend.

DH is coming home tomorrow so i won't be online much and stitching will slow down too, im afraid.

I will leave you with a few pictures of my blooming peonies and other flowers.

This is another kind of Peony than the one above, quite tall one. Last year when it was blooming it was such bad weather, very windy, it was destroyed within a couple of days. It was really a pity. So i hope this time will stay fine or else i will cut it and place it on a vase inside.

Rhododendron, the first time it blooms since i planted it a couple of years ago.

Hope you are all having a good week. Thanks so much for stopping by and all the lovely comments. I really appreciate them all!!

Lovely piece of hardanger. The pinkeep is a cute finish, it's suits the design perfectly.

I a so jealous of the peonies and rhododendrons. It's too warm to plant them where I live.

i love your garden, esp. with flower, we cant grow flowers here as is hot and humid.

Enjoys your time with your DH and kids.

Mylene, your garden is so lovely this year! I hope the weather cooperates so that you have a nice showing of peony blossoms. :)

Since I won your last drawing, I will sit this one out. But your hardanger is so beautiful, the winner will be very lucky to receive it.
