Irene’s Exquisite Hardanger Flower Girl

Hi everyone

The last two posts have featured Irene Burton’s awesome Japanese embroidery. In this one I’m going to share something very different – a lovely Hardanger Flower Girl.

Now while the technique might be completely different all the hallmarks of Irene’s approach to stitching are here – the extraordinary attention to detail, the exquisite sewing and the creative flair. Can you tell that she’s a perfectionist?

Now to the eye candy…..
