Beginner's Hardanger EGA GCC designed by Marion Scoular
This is an EGA GCC (group correspondence course) that I have recently taken with the EGA CyberStitchers group. It is a beginner's hardanger course designed and written by Marion Scoular. The design size is approximately 8 ¾" square and stitched on a 22 count hardanger fabric.
Marion Scoular's instructions to me were the best. There were things that I had not been able to understand with the help of hardanger books like the ones written by Janice Love which are very good, but for some reason there were things that I just could not get, but after reading Marion Scoular's instructions I got right away. One example are the picots. I hated them before because I was not able to do them properly and now it is a real pleasure to do them. I always find it so interesting to see the different styles of teaching and what works for each person. I would certainly recommend that course to anyone who would like to learn how to do hardanger properly.
I have finished my project as a pillow using a 14" square pillow form.
