Somewhere to keep track of my Op Shopping and Treasure Finding for the year. I love to find a bargain and I love to share my finds with like minded shoppers.

On my Flea Market Finds post this week I mentioned a Hardanger Embroidery book and someone asked what that was. The name comes from the region in Norway where this form of counted thread embroidery originated. This delicate type of openwork (and drawn thread work) can be created with only a few basic stitches, and lots of patience!
I do not do any embroidery now, and I must state that I have NEVER attempted Hardanger, but I do love to read craft books and I sell a lot of craft books on eBay, along with lots of other crafty bits.
This recent purchase, a book by Sigrid Bright, published in the USA IN 1978 is a really good 'how to' book, with very clear concise instructions and close up photographs. So before I send it to a new home I thought I'd share a few photos with you, and I hope that answers your question Kylie.
