Hardanger - * Heart Ornament *

My second Hardanger work is "Heart Ornament" here!
This time, was used beads, cross stitch etc... it was really fun to stitch along!

I'm a real beginner, but I'm so happy that I could make such a beautiful thing like this!
I'm quite satisfied of this result!
It's beautiful in the green, isn't it?!

I'm not intend to be a professer of Hardanger (of course, lol ), I just wanted to learn and to know how to make the small things in Hardanger like this things.
I mean I was just curious!

But I think they are really nice to be small gifts for friends!

I've learnet only two styles at the moment, so want to learn a little more about this!

By the way, I really like this beautiful and elegant ornamnent, although it doesn't suit my life style at all, LOL!
