Folkloristic stitches




Three embroidery projects that I finished these last weeks, thanks to the rainy weather: 

A white linen square with red motives inspired by Moroccan Fesi embroidery (but not identical on the backside of the work, as it should be...)

  

Another smaller linen square with a folk motif from Hungary, in cross stitch.

And a little practise square with some embroidery techniques used in Norway on traditional textiles.

From top to bottom:

I love the red on white- your edging is beautiful too.
