I used to do a lot of cross stitch, until I found a pattern for a Hardanger project in one of my cross stitch magazines. From then on, I was hooked, and Hardanger is pretty much all I do now.
Where did you learn your textile skills?
There was a pattern for some Hardanger and cross stitch coasters in one of my issues of Needlework & Country Crafts. I enjoyed it, so when another pattern appeared a few months later, I did that as well. I discovered Nordic Needle through the suppliers list in back of the magazine, learned more stitches from Janice Loves two books, Basics & Beyond and Fundamentals Made Fancy. I've been hooked ever since.
Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I am an American; grew up in the metropolitan Detroit area of Michigan, then moved to Texas. I lived in Houston for awhile, then moved to East Texas and lived there for several years until I moved to Australia in January 2008.

Hi, Jeanne! I tried pasting the url and it worked!!! It was fun to look at her other hardanger pieces, as well. I'm doing the cutwork part now on a piece I've been working on for a while; it's a tablecover to go on a treadle sewing machine cabinet that's oak -- my grandma used the machine to sew clothes for my mom. The top of the cabinet actually needs to be refinished, but I thought it would be easier to just stitch a special hardanger piece to cover it up than to mess with refinishing it!
Hi, Jeanne! Thanks for the comment -- unfortunately, though, I couldn't click on your link, and when I tried typing it in I didn't have any success, either. But it's a real thrill to hear that someone liked my design enough to want to re-create it themselves!!!!! Happy stitching -- Kim
