More Options .... in Hardanger: Border stitched


After working really hard and long, I have just done the border with blanket stitches.
-
Again, I can't seem to be able to get a good photo showing the colors properly. The thread looks really good with the fabric, but whenever I look at any photos that I have taken so far, the colors just do not come up right. Too bad that you can't see the colors up-close and personal :-)
-
I am not sure if I am going to do the eyelets next or the motifs. The eyelets will be quite repetitive and there are quite a bit of them. They do need to be done before I can start having fun with the fillings though, so no way that I can get out of it :-(
-
I guess I may end up doing a bit of both, just to change the monotony a bit.
-
I also need to start looking online for some bell pull hardware. Not sure what I want, metal or wood. Choices, choices ..............

Doris,

I took some time this morning to have a look at the bell pull hardware and was able to eliminate lots of them but still uncertain about what I want. I am looking for something simple and at the same time beautiful. I am not asking for much, am I? :-)
