Christmas is Coming

I seem to be spending a lot of time working on the outside edges of hardanger ornaments.  This one is ready for cutting, decorations and finishing.

 I worked on this one the other day.  It is also ready for the dreaded cutting.

This one is still 'in progress'.  I really do need to return to Max.

Dear Taffy,
I like Hardanger, but I can´t do that. It is horror for me to cut in the fabric.
I have the chart "Carol Singer Sampler" from The Victoria Sampler and there you have Hardanger on the bottom of the sampler. And that is, why I can´t begin. I think,I will change that part with a nice white cross stitch decor.

I really like that heart ornament for christmas that you finished last week !!

Liebe Grüße von Anja

I've always wanted to try this, but just the thought of cutting around the stitching makes my heart go pitty-pat. Or something like that. And not in a good way. I just think I need to find a super simple hardanger pattern to try it out. Something small. Your stitching is beautiful. Please post an after cutting photo!
