Yes, I've been challenged to reactivate this sweet hardanger doily by my guild friend, Laura. We began a SAL for this piece a couple of years ago - Laura finished, I did not. Well she's been plotting another project, a hardanger table runner, but she says we won't start until I've finished the first one. :D
We used a very pretty light shade of pink lugana stitched with white DMC perle coton. Back then, Laura shared her book with me, but now I need to go ahead and buy a copy of the book for myself. This design is from Hardanger Embroidery by Jill Carter, and the book is filled with wonderful projects, gorgeous photography, and excellent instructions. It deserves a place in my library!
I've often posted about my bread and cookie baking, but have neglected to share with you my trusty workhorse that makes it all possible. This is my friend, an old Bosch mixer, which I bought used probably fifteen years ago - and it was old then! It's not an all-in-one breadmaker, but it does knead a huge batch of bread or even mix stiff cookie doughs. Without old trusty here, I wouldn't even think of baking the way I do!
The weather here continues to be cold and gray. Ugh!
