A finish and a Pressie

I finished my first Hardanger piece today. Thank you so much Rene for running the class! I was very nervous about the cutting part but it is easier than it looks. I had more trouble with wrapping the bars.........go figure lol! The design is a freebie from Polstitches. I got the pack which includes fabric, threads and beads from Polstitches specifically for the project.


Rene sent me a pre Birthday package. I just love my piggies. Isn't the cupcake soooooooo cute!

Pressie from Rene

Thank you Rene. I love it so much! Also I received a bookmark from Rene as well that she stitched me seeing I couldn't do the bookmark exchange that I ran as there were an even ammount of participants so I couldnt join in. I just love it and have nearly finished the one I am doing for Rene's daughter Manda Panda.

I am getting very excited as it is my Birthday tomorrow and I get to open lots of pressies from the girls on the Birthday Club. It will be the first year that I will of got stitchy presents!


  1. Congrats on a fantastic finish! I knew you could do it hehehe

    I'm so happy you like your pressie. When I got the pink fabric I just knew what I had to use it for....A Piggy cupcake for you!

    Have a wonderful birthday tomorrow and I know you will have tons of fun opening all the pressie. Can't wait to see what you get.

    Your hardanger looks lovely! I find that it is easier to wrap the threads in pairs, in a figure-8 configuration.
