Wow! I can see why this is a winner. It is beautifully crafted. So beautiful. I'd leave it out year 'round.

If you're interested in this style of embroidery, this is a project that comes from the book "Early-Style Hardanger", by Yvette Stanton (that's me!). It includes instructions for how to do Hardanger embroidery, and how to make this runner for yourself.

Gorgeous! I have not tried linen on linen yet. I have bought the highly recomended book ???? "Early-Style Hardanger"(Btw, I have not found a better norwegian book here in Norway), and I sure will give some of the patterns a try.

This is so beautiful and reminds me of the pieces I have that my grandmother and great grandmother did. It is a lost art and I wish they had taught me how to do it. Beautiful!
