Hardanger Ornaments

I know my posts have been few and far between lately; let's just say I'm just trying to keep my head above water; lot's going on!

On Saturday I am flying to Vienna, Austria to spend next week with my cousins in Burgenland.  My family has given me their blessing to be gone over Thanksgiving.  Two of the days will be spent visiting with Mrs. Istvan Szigethy and her daughter.  You can read more about Mrs. Szigethy here:  Hovej Embroidery.  I am so excited to have this opportunity to meet them and to learn more about Hovej Embroidery.  Check back after Thanksgiving for a full report!

There has been little time for stitching, but I have done some...I've been working on Hardanger ornaments for Christmas.  Aren't they pretty?  (I think I need to take a photography class!)





That's all I've got.  Thanks for stopping by!
