Wintertide: Patricia Andrle, designer

Project: Wintertide

Designer: Patricia Andrle

Type of needlework: Hardanger

Photos: 5

This is a Kreinik free design that you can find here.

Comments: I was looking for a lovely little Christmas ornament to stitch for a friend for some Christmas past and found Wintertide on the Kreinik website and I then knew I had found what I was looking for. It is elegant and uses Hardanger technique, something that I enjoyed doing and there is no added finishing to do, so what more can a stitcher like me ask for?
