Wintertide: Small corner flowers added

Moving along with Wintertide. Just added the four corner flowers with vines. As I am working this project, I have decided to make a second one a bit later using a different fabric and threads as I am not 100% happy about the outcome of this one. It looks good, I think, but it could be so much better. My fabric has uneven threads, which is a no no when you are doing hardanger. Not sure what I was thinking when I selected it (not thinking perhaps!). I had problems with the thread suggested, so switched to DMC Perle, which was not quite the proper size for this piece. I am telling you, big learning curve on this one. I need to use the appropriate fabric and thread for the task at hand next time around. Oh well, I suppose we can't win them all :-(
I will now "attack" the kloster blocks and hopefully only cut the right threads and weave the bars. Let's see what happens next!

Hope your cutting and weaving goes according to plan, but then I would fall over with shock if it did not as your other completed hardanger projects are all stitched beautifully as well as perfectly

It looks lovely! So pretty and Christmas-y.

Oh Terry, you are just too funny and I certainly don't want to have your falling on my conscience, so will do my very best :-)
