A Garden In Silk

Garden In Silk 

Designed by Debra VanOverloop

This just may be one of the prettiest Hardanger designs you’ve ever seen. Delicate Silk Mori flowers accent the silk-thread cutwork that resembles a French country window. The best part is that it’s small enough to finish quickly—better to satisfy the soul when you don’t have much time for stitching these busy days. 

If you’ve never tried Hardanger before, silk threads are easy to use for this technique and offer beautiful results. However, we recommend contacting your local needlework shop or checking out Hardanger reference books for detailed instruction on the cutting and needleweaving. 

Materials needed:

• Kreinik Silk Mori 1092, 1105, 1107, 3011, 4163, 4166, 8000 (one 2.5m skein of each)
• Kreinik Silk Serica 1092 and 8000
• 28-count white linen
• sharp scissors for the cut areas
