A Post on Behalf of Joann McC

Just in case you were wondering where Joann McC has been, she's been side-tracked  by some lovely hardanger.  Here's her excuse!!

This summer had a busy start. It was a big year for birthdays in my family:   cousin's son turned 30, I turned 60, my aunt turned 85 and my mom turned 95.   I asked my aunt what she wanted and she said something in hardanger. So I put down my SL SAL to work on it.

I've just returned from PA where I spent the week of the 4th with my family for birthday celebrations. We celebrated mom's birthday at the local steak house. Got her a large flat screen and a few other gifts.

Not much stitching was done due to poor lighting at my mom's. I am home now and hope to get back to Sarah Selfe and finish her this year. I've still got a couple more UFOs that will need finishing so will probably continue those into next year.

Here is the hardanger I did for my aunt:

Your hardanger is so pretty. It is a craft that I greatly enjoy doing. It is so therapeutic.

I am sure that your aunt will treasure your gift.
