Altar Cloth Progress Report

Last week I shared with you some pictures of a project that Mrs. Istvánné Szigethy is working on at her home in Hungary.  Please visit my January 28 post for the background information if you haven't read it already seen it.  
I received some updated photos yesterday from Mrs. Szigethy's daughter showing the progress she is making on the altar cloth.

It's beautiful, isn't it?  I know that she works on it everyday; she's anxious to get it finished.  She has a long way to go.  I'm looking forward to watching her progress!

I know many of you are enjoying these posts.  I was thinking this morning about how technology has helped to make our world a smaller, friendlier place.  Through the use of email and the internet, we have the opportunity to watch Mrs. Szigethy create this beautiful work of art.  

Thank you for your comments too.  I know that her daughter checks my blog and shares your comments with her.  It is very exciting for this lovely old woman to know that there are  stitchers in the U.S. and other parts of the world who are interested in what she does.  It brings her great joy!

Thank you Mrs. Szigethy for sharing your talent with us.  We're anxious to see more!
