I forgot to share with you some of the purchases I made last weekend at the Scandinavian Festival; I was reminded of this when I put them away today (cleaning off the dining room table for Easter!)
First up, there were two nice ladies at the festival who were selling linens. The linens had been acquired during their travels and some were cross stitched, there was some cutwork, even some hardanger. Lots of beautiful linens. This small doily caught my eye, It's just cross stitch, but the design and the colors remind me of Hungary or maybe the Czech Republic.
I had to bring this bentwood tray home too. It has a handle and is currently holding some wooden eggs and paper carrots on the dining room table. I think it might make a nice display for some needlework smalls after Easter! Click on the picture to better see the detail on the handle.
This bowl caught my eye the first morning when I arrived at the festival. I liked the detail on the side of the bowl and the colors suited my liking. My first piece of rosemaling!
And just when I thought I had finished shopping I came across this little pincushion with rosemaling! I think it was made for me! I was so excited to find it. Love it!
Need to head to church in a little bit as I am singing in the choir at our Easter Vigil service. We're staying home tomorrow and will enjoy the traditional ham, cheesy potatoes, fruit salad, and green beans. We picked up our pies at Baker's Square this afternoon!
