Marguerite combines Hardanger with specialty stitches to create this lovely 8" square design. The materials required are 28-count white Lugana (3270-100) with DMC size 5 pearl cotton #550 x 2; and DMC size 8 pearl cotton #211, 210, 209, 208. You will also need Mill Hill beads #2085.
I just recently started Marguerite, and she is lovely. I'm working on the Kloster block areas, and besides my apparent inability to count, it's going really well. It's an easy stitch so far, and it's going quickly. I'll try and update when I get into the more difficult areas, but I don't think I'll have any problems. Her instructions are clear as a bell, and she obviously has a real flair for the work.
