You know I should know better you are supposed to start with the kloster blocks first... then you might quit ruining fabric and thread... sigh When will I learn?
Thanks Lorelei. The next time I do any filling stitches I am going to refer to your website.
Now you need red thread to match the cloth, cloth to make all the pieces in those magazines, and zillion skeins of thread!
I also found picots very difficult to get right when I started. The plain ones are easier to learn. The bullion picots are harder to learn, but once you get it, they are easier to do neatly. I have some sequential photos on my website, for how I make regular picots. Perhaps it would help.
Last Monday was my birthday and I received some money for my birthday. This weekend I spent it. I bought several Burda hardanger magazines, Viola hardanger table runner kit from Permin of Copenhagen, a piece of red hardanger fabric, and a Singer sewing basket.
I really need practice at the filling stitches. If you look close at my bookmarks you can see. The first one I just gave up on the picots and on the second one they ended up looking like french knots.
Thanks Lorelei! I'm going to go and have a practice....I'm starting a new piece today, but it'll be a while until I'm back doing filling stitches so I thought I'd do some sample squares, just so I don't forget what I've learned!
Suz: I find wrapping bars somewhat annoying, compared with needleweaving. But for these divided bars which are supposed to bow outward and become curved, wrapping is necessary. What I do to keep them neat is after each wrap I put my left thumb on top of the bar while my right hand is manipulating the needle for the next stitch. My left thumb keeps the thread from sliding loose, and all the wraps lie neatly next to each other. I usually figure out a way to work the bars from left to right, for this reason.
Hi Julie....I don't have one! I'm not that great with computers, and I'm not sure how to do it! lol..
Ok, I admit I'm new here, but Hardanger Suz where is your picture??
