This design is stitched on either end of a table runner - the fabric is Lugano, the thread #8 DMC perle cotton - one of my favourite threads. Lugano is not - I much prefer 100 % linen, however I had this fabric in my stash. The design is part of a design from a recent Rakam - the marvellous Italian magazine. It includes a hardanger square above the motif which I decided not to use. I did find following the chart quite difficult - however that did not surprise me.
The doubled inch hem is in antique hem stitch - another of my favourite things. I was reasonably happy with the end result and can't wait to work my own design for the next one. However that is on the back burner as much of my time is currently taken up with a Creative Embroidcry course from the NSW guild - however that is a story for another time.
