Nothing original, made this for my mother for christmas (or atleast I intended to - finished right after new year)
It's hardanger embroidery, I don't quite know where I got the pattern.
Some satin stitch, langette, buttonhole stitch, maltese crosses, needlewoven bars... It turned out real pretty. Smiley



It's a window ornament hanging thing. It's hanging in my mothers window now.

This is really neat!  I read in an incredibly intimidating embroidery book how to do hardanger stuff, but I could not get my head around it.  Nice work!

Hardanger embroidery is actually incredibly easy. But you can't read about it, that's too difficult. I had pictures. A picture guide. It's really simple to illustrate. Most of it is just common edge-seam like you use for most things, and the rest is mostly just going in "circles" through the fabric (the satin stitches). As for the pretty and impressive holes and weave-bits - those just look neat, and are just as easy really.. Wink
