Hardanger SAL #5

Morning ladies, I've got the next installment in Mabel Figworthy's Fancies Song of the Weather SAL for you today.  This is June's block.



Once again, I can't get the white to show as white - the background fabric is the same white as the stitches, no idea what's going on there.  I'm resigned to the fact I'll never get a decent picture of this project.

June marks the end of the 6 blocks I was putting together:



I'm not convinced I've got the border right on this, but it looks pretty enough.  Those split twists (inside the cutwork squares) were a bugger to do!



Here it is with May's block:


July's block is already out, so I should get on with stitching that, but I have a commission to do first!  Commissions are scary!

I know,right? I always get freaked out when someone asks me to make them something! Even if it is something I make all the time.

An incredible and stunning piece Wendy!
As for the photo taking, why don't you try photographing it outside? I am sure the result would be good.
