An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

I'm making progress on my Hardanger bookmark. Mine is going to be bigger than the original, my fabric must be coarser. Actually, that's a good thing because the competition says the bookmark must be 20 cm long and the original is only 16 cm long. This is a practice piece, but I think the fabric I'll use for the 'real deal' is the same as this.
When I made the previous bookmark, I had some difficulty removing the marking threads without distorting the embroidery stitches. So this time I've been removing those threads as I go. The blocks are worked in relation to each other now, so I shouldn't need those markers.
