Hi Shirley,

I  used the cutter on a dental floss box for cutting threads on a plane:) Maybe an idea?

happy stitching

Thank you for the nice comment Shirley, and yes you can take scissors with you on the plane as long as the blades are less than 4 inches, I was in Denmark in October and had no problem

Hi Shirley,

Thank you for asking me to be one of your SF friends.  I hope we get a chance to chat often.

 Connie Kusevskis responded to me about the picots: Picot's are difficult ... keep trying sooner or later it will happen.

I think next time I am going to use a second needle to hold the picot loop out until I snug, move on and finished the woven bar.  On that bookmark I was trying to do two picots, each side of the woven bar ... that wasn't  going to happen :)

I have several hardanger books from Nordic Needle and I am slowly working my way through them.  

On this particular bookmark, it was a kit and the multi-green size 5 Sullivan's came in the kit.  I think next time I am going to use a solid size 5 color thread as I think the pattern will pop more with a solid color.

I do like that scallop edge that Connie showed us.  Noelle
