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

I took a deep breath and began cutting the fabric away from round my Hardanger bookmark. Actually, it's a little bit easier than cutting the squares. The outside is buttonhole stitch. The loop of thread at the end of the stitches covers the cut, so it doesn't need to be quite as precise. (Don't tell an expert I said that, Hardanger is all about precision) There are a lot of faults in here, but I've learnt from it and I'm happy with how it looks. Now to use those lessons into the next attempt....
