Weekend Wonderfuls 7

Hi everyone

The Hardanger Group of the Guild meets on the second Saturday of the month – it’s a lively bunch of people who just love stitching this technique. There are all levels of expertise with a common thread of enthusiasm and friendship.

I went to the June meeting and looked over people’s shoulders and here’s a sample of what I saw:

Brenda Phillips was working on a large tablecloth – here’s one of the decorative elements:

Jillian Bath brought along a selection of the sample ornaments she’s been stitching as part of a Hardanger Ornament Club with Nordic Needle – she wanted to share her progress and the fun, pretty seasonal designs.

The ornaments are designed by Roz Watnemo:
