Hardanger And CSA

Hey...guess what! In my last post I mentioned (okay..."plugged") CSA's Oberammergau Passion Play trip. But now you can combine this with something that is just as awesome.....an embroidery workshop!!! Yes, another "plug" but also an exciting and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity! Well, at least once a decade as that's how often the Passion Play comes around. Check it out!

I've really been practicing my Hardanger. Here are a few pictures of what my practice piece looks like now.










It's really neat looking. Well, my other "hobby" these days is going to the dentist and it's about that time so.....until later!

It's looking great...I know that by learning all of these new stitches...you'll be creating something fabulous in the future...I've no doubt about that. As for the plug, I'd love to come over and learn from your sister. ah well...

Wanda, You do the most beautiful needlework- The hardanger is intricate and so pretty. It looks so much more difficult than some of the quilting projects I have made... interesting how we find different things inspiring and other things just overwhelming. The balance between creative challenge and frustration is indeed one of life's puzzles..

A friend went to visit a passion play in Germany many years ago - I remember her loving it

Hope the dentist is not too uncomfortable.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Hey! That hardanger piece is really doing well! You're exploring all those colours and making different shapes etc. Is it going to be a big sampler when done that you can display somewhere?

I hope going to the dentist bei euch is less stressful than here! NO injections for most things - even root fillings! Still, they've been trained in the US way of doing un-necessary treatment so as to get more $$$ out of the patient (so a US friend here tells me), but, as there's a very good and cheap insurance scheme here, I think they could all do with retraining along British lines - only do what's really needed and do it close to painfree as possible. My worst fear here is needing another filling.....

I remember reading about the Passion Play in my favourite Chalet School books. Sounds very intense - the (very highly strung, ie just like me) Head Girl fainted at the end!!!=)
