Edelweiss & Triple Woven Spokes

Well, with the wonderful help of a few talented stitcher's finding clear understandable directions, I was able to complete the Edelweiss Flower filling stitch on my Hardanger Christmas ornament.
Not really sure I like the way it turned out using the #12 pearl cotton, but it was much easier than I thought it would be. Most directions said to use #8 but I already had the center web stitched and didn't want to pull it all out.

"Edelweiss Flower"
Stitched on 28ct. white Monaco using DMC threads.

The other half is the Woven Triple Spoke.

I'll have a picture of the finished ornament sometime this week when I'm done with it.

Thank you all for stopping by and for any comments you might leave behind I really do appreciate each and every one.

Take Care and Happy Stitchin'
Hugs, Sandy
