First finish of the year - hardanger bookmark


Just a very quick post to showcase my first finish of the year, the hardanger bookmark I mentioned the other day.  It was worked on 2 and 3 January, and presented to the daughter of its final owner yesterday lunchtime  as her poor mum was in bed with 'flu, so I hope this will cheer her up a little.

OK, Sir is almost ready with dinner, so must fly...

Such a nice way to end one year and begin the next.
The bookmark is very pretty with the pastel threads. I like the edging method. Lovely pattern also.

Congratulations on your first finish in 2015! The bookmark is lovely and I really like the way you finished the edges. I can't tell where is the beginning or the end... I need tutorial for that stitch...
