Drea-dear Hardanger tutorial


My blog is dedicated to cross stitch and Hardanger embroidery.  I discuss and show pictures of my works in progress, as well as pictures of projects done with other stitchers.  I have online tutorials for those wanting to learn a new stitching technique - hardanger embroidery.  I also show items for sale in my Etsy shop, with a link for shoppers interested in buying hand-crafted items.


I'm Andrea Holme.  I'm an at-home mom of 2, living in SW Idaho, USA.  I love cross stitch and Hardanger Embroidery, and I'm teaching myself crochet.  I create my own patterns, and love learning new finishing techniques.  I like talking to other stitchers - I learn something new from every site I visit.

  1. I used to embroider back when I had more time, but never heard of Hardanger. I'll be sure to check out your post to learn more about it.

  2. You are so informed! My sister-n-law does beautiful cross stitch. Your blog will be perfect for her!

  3. Hi Andrea,
    I just returned from long stay in St.George. Your pkg. was here when I returned. Loved the bracelet it was a little hard to get on, but felt and looked great. I made the mistake of cleaning off the patio's and when I came inside it was on it's last thread. I would say you probably need stronger thread for active people like me!
    It is a beautiful piece of work, I thank you for the opportunity to try it out! Thanks again.
