Hardanger August

Ooops, it seems I completely forgot to post!  I thought I'd scheduled enough posts to get me through the week but apparently not.

First of all, massive apology to all the people who've left me comments or emailed me.  Besides the full inbox, I also discovered this morning that a lot of emails I'd sent hadn't actually left my outbox and I can't make them send now.  So sorry if you thought I was ignoring you.


This is August from Mabel Figworthy's Fancies Song of the Weather SAL.  I actually got this finished in August, so was all caught up... but now it's September and I'm not caught up any more.


I really enjoyed this one, except for the picots.  You can see my attempt at picots in the middle cutwork square above.  Unfortunately, when I was stitching this I didn't have access to a computer, couldn't get to the SAL blog post to see the tutorial and couldn't get to my Hardanger reference books due to the building work.  I wung it.  I definitely got it wrong!



Here's July and August together, but upside down I now note!  I took these pictures on my phone as the camera is better than my normal camera which always gives white a blue tint.  I'll try to remember to do that for each month, or whenever I'm photographing something white.  No promises, my memory is appalling.  I actually wonder if I was born without a short-term memory at all, though that would make me forget that I was typing halfway through a

I'm not sure what kind of camera you have but I notice that these new ones have 'white balance'. You could see if your cammy has that option and that would correct the blue tint.

You are doing yourself down, technically you are still up to date until the end of the month :)

I think the picots are pretty cute, if they're the little "bobbles" inside the middle open squares on all 4 sides :)

Well I think they're lovely, Wendy! So pretty. You really made me laugh with your last comment - I USED to have a fantastic memory, but it went AWOL on me!
