I have decided to completely finish this hardanger this morning before starting anything else so have taken my best little scissors (German brand) and started the task of cutting very carefully all around the border twice, the first time as close as possible but not too much and then a second time, being very careful as I was getting very close to the border.
This is not a very big piece, only approx. 7.5 large by a little over 5 inches high, but is so cute. Just love it.
Now, on to my next project.
