Hardanger and Paper Pieced Quilt Wallhangings

Well, there has to be a better way to get these photos in the blog than what i am doing!
This is the first paper pieced wall hanging i did. Again, the colours are just a touch off, but its pretty close. The instructions for this piece were super easy to follow and i loved the final outcome! There is a close up of one of the pointsettas below.

I tackled this paper pieced wall hanging next. It is 16 1/2 inches by 24 inches. The little blocks are 2 3/4 by 2 3/4 inches.

And, this is the second hardanger piece i ever did. I find that hardanger looks terribly complicated and difficult, but most people who learn how to do it, find it so much easier to do than regular cross stitch and having to follow a cross stitch pattern.

And that's it for today! I wanted to see if i could get this done a bit quicker than last nights 3 hours and it took very little time today.
I have a project that i did for my knitting needles and crochet hooks coming up next! Stay tuned!

    Hardenger and paper piecing look so beautiful yet so difficult to me that I'm most likely to walk on the moon before making something so impressive!
