I just received these pictures from Mrs. Szigethy's daughter; the altar cloth is completed! It took her two months from start to finish to re-create this beautiful piece done in Hövej embroidery. Mrs. Szigethy stitched the original many, many years ago for the church in Agyagosszergény. She borrowed it from them so that she could copy her design and stitch it again. This finished reproduction is now on display at her exhibit in the village of Hövej.
Here are some pictures of her completed work!
When I visited last November, there was another altar cloth in its place; I will have to ask what will happen with that one. Perhaps they are going to use it on the other side. There's another room in the building that they are currently re-doing and will have more of Mrs' Szigethy's embroidery on display.
Thank you for following along with me as we watched her progress on this piece of needlework. She's an amazing and very talented needleworker!
