Hardanger Embroidery

To see my latest completed piece, go here.  This was taken in 2008.  Here we have Rajashree, Anisa (sorry her eyes are closed!), Dee (visiting from Norway, she used to live here), me, Naina and Maya.

These are just some of the ladies from our Hardanger group that meets every Sunday.  Naina, Maya, me, my Mom!! (visiting for three months), Supriya, Megumi and Sandra.  We are all displaying or holding some of our work.

Megumi had just finished this beautiful table runner that took a very long time.  I thought she deserved her 15 minutes of fame and applause!

Another view of Megumi's work.

A serious close-up.  Isn't it beautiful!

Oh what beautiful work you ladies do. I really like Megumi's work, such intricate stitching. I also have a hardanger group that meet at my home once a month here in Nottingham in England. I will add your blog to my favourites so that I can see all your wonderful work regularly. I am hoping to set up a blog soon.
Kind Regards
Colette

Thank you Colette! Setting up a blog is so very easy! Just go to: http://www.blogger.com and there are step by step instructions for you to learn how to set up a blog. There are others as well such as Typepad but I am not famililar with this one. I visit other blogs and then pilfer side bar stuff that I like!! It is so much fun! Welcome and I hope you enjoy the other stuff. As you know, Hardanger takes such a long time to complete but we are an active group!! Take care...
