Hardanger is such a pretty technique; it looks so much harder to stitch than it is
...and this design is very very easy!
I first stitched this for a baby boy's christening and have used it in different guises many times since.
Here I have used 32count pastel linen to allow space for more than one Christian name. On each colour fabric the cross and border are stitched with white, using silk for the eyelets, the lettering is also stitched in silk to bring a subtle luxurious sheen. I have used a variety of different silks from a number of manufacturers and some of it is overdyed.
This is an absolute pleasure to stitch!
If you would prefer to use your own fabric and threads, I can send out the chart on its own at a cost of £8. In this case the alphabet and numerals are included too. Please select this option under 'personalise?' and make your colour choice as usual.
(Obviously the fabric and threads selected will alter the look of the finished design!)
