I like these ...
JBW Designs. Has anybody stitched them? Their French Country rabbit, reindeer, etc. are so interesting. I have to check them out during my next LNS trip.
Today, I received this comment: "Help please. I'm new to Hardanger and have just cut 5 threads insted of 4 - I understand all is not lost and I can repair! Does anyone know how please? Thanks Craftygirl"
Dear Craftygirl: I don't do a lot of hardanger & I'm not exactly sure how to repair cut fibers. My guess is that you take a linen thread & replace it. Or, if it is cut in an area where it will be covered by a Kloster block, then it won't really show. I wish I knew more about hardanger to help you out.
UPDATE -- words of wisdom from Sue D: "Just read your latest blog entry. Tell your friend with the Hardanger that the thread she cut can be saved by doing the Kloister block, if it is the edge or when you do your weaving of the middle threads. I have fixed mine this way several times. You don't notice it once the weaving is done. You just be sure to catch the lose thread when you do the weaving, the other thread you are weaving should support it. Hope this helps. Sue"
