Hardanger Pulled Thread, Linda Driskell

Design for this worked piece came from Heirloom Whitework Sampler – Linda Driskell Hardanger Pulled Thread Book.

The worked piece is an odd shape, 15.5 inches by 9.5 inches because I needed a mat under a photo frame for a specific area of a bookcase top.

I like several of the pulled designs in Ms. Driskell’s booklet and plan to stitch several more mats using her pulled stitch designs.

I finished this piece several months ago, I have forgotten which fabric I worked it on as I was using a scrap left over from another project. The finished piece is kind of rustic looking, but does it job protecting the bookcase top.
