Hardanger runner

Finally I have completed the hardanger runner,   it did not take long as much of it had been done well over 2 years ago.
The runner is 24" x 16" and not sure where it will be used.  It is on 25ct evenweave and I used perle 8 & 12,   green being my favourite colour I had to use some, it is a rather nice varigated green and I think it works well.   Can see me starting another project with this technique before too long as I so enjoy doing it.  Usually I just start in the middle and the design gradually emerges.

I bought a new hardanger book last month and highly recommend it for anyone wanting to learn this technique,  it is by Frederique Marfaing and called Hardanger embroidery,  to me this is one of the best instructions book I have amongst all my hardanger books and also has projects in it but there are hardanger cut out designs I have never come across before so will be trying some of those too



I gather bloglovin is up to its old tricks and has started putting verification back on the comments,  someone kindly let me know it has appeared here,  I think I have removed it correctly but if not please let me know if you leave a comment.

What a lovely table runner! The Hardanger embroidery techniqued originates from Norway, and my mother made quite a few of these.

Anita said...

The runner is gorgeous! I think the green part kind of lifts the entire design.Congratulations on the finish Margaret!

That runner is stunning. I tried a little bit of Hardanger at a taster session in a show, but I've only enough for a pin cushion (and a very small one at that).

Beautiful. I have done a bit of hardanger and don't find it too difficult. That said, you do need good light, good eyes, and the ability to count accurately!

Anneliese said...

Congratulations! You finished it! It is beautiful. I wonder what you did in "the upper right edge" you were talking about in the post before this one.

Gaia said...

What to do with it after.xx

Bente-I like to QuiltBlog said...

Margaret, your hardanger runner ist so so beautiful,
it is almost like a sampler because you stitched a lot of different pattern. I have never tryed this sort of handcraft, I think it is very difficult, but I love how it looks ans I have some hardanger tablecloths from my mother here.
I wish you a merry Christmas!

Monica said...

Great work on the Hardanger! You must really have a thorough understanding of the technique, to able to stitch improvisationally like that. It would certainly be fun to see another!

shirley said...
