Hardanger and babies!

I joined the Hardanger Accessories club from Nordic Needle and finished the first part a few days ago and finally got it mounted in the box.

 It is a little crooked, but that is easily fixed.  I found a smaller piece of sticky board, cut a piece of gold lame and put it on the sticky board, then laced the hardanger piece to it.
Not the best picture, but it shows the beads on it.  This piece was pretty quick to stitch and I love it!  I'm going to do it again in white for the other box.  This is done on cream lugana with cream perle cotton and beads.   I am very pleased with the way it turned out!

I'll be back in a few days with an update on Emma Miles.

I need to get busy and crochet baby blankets!  My DIL and 2 of my nieces are all pregnant and due between July and September!  I have one started and will post a pic of that soon, too.

Eskie smiles,

Terri

Such a beautiful box Terri! You did a fantastic job with the finish and the hardanger! I'm sure the babies and moms will be so happy to receive your hand made crochet blankets! Luckily babies are small so the blankets can be too!
