Oh, what a wonderful gift. That's awesome, Cucki. Huge grats to you. You'll find that the hardanger part is much easier than it looks. (That's the beauty of it. It looks extremely difficult, but it really isn't.) I hope you enjoy every minute of it!!! You've got a nice start too. Isn't it nice how fast the Kloster Blocks go compared to Cross Stitch!!

Catherine said...
