Water Droplets

IMG_6411There is something magical hanging on the branch.

I just love when I see water droplets on branches.

Today they are hanging on all kinds of branches  in our backyard.

Ich finde es immer sehr schoen Wasser Tropfen an den Zweigen hängen zu sehen…

Heute gibt es viel davon in unserem Garten.

Hardanger Christmas Star

2015-12-03 16.15.26
I like to be unique so red with glitter gold thread was perfect fit for me.

As we all are putting out our christmas decoration up, I came across a special handmade decoration I had made several years ago. This red Christmas Star.

Smiles I was told just last week I should be putting this all out on the tables and not have them in storage.

I was the lucky women to have a mom and grandmother that shown me lots of stuff like knitting, crocheting, tatting, Hardanger stitching and much more.

I have to say this hardanger stitching is really amazing and you better make sure you count each single thread as you go along in the setup of the outside border. Because it will hurt much more to open up all the blocks if you are off by YES ONLY ONE THREAD!

My Moms creation

Hardanger embroidery is a form of embroidery traditionally worked with white thread on white even-weave cloth, using counted thread and drawn thread work techniques. Hardanger fabric is an evenweave cotton material woven with pairs of threads of 22 count. The weave gives a squared appearance to the fabric  with distinct holes, making it easy to count and work on. DMC Pearl Cotton 5 is ideal for Hardanger Fabric. Use DMC Pearl cotton 8, for more delicate filling stitches and other surface details.

Have a look at some of the table runners most of them my mom did. I stepped out of the box and had to make the red once and one of the beige once for sure. They for sure take a while to finish!
