Last time I went to New England, Wendy, I went through Allentown. A lovely drive (except for the construction), You'd be welcome.
Ardy, who knows? Maybe I really well someday. You don't live that far from my mother's home in Delaware. I'd love to see them....and you, of course. ;-)
I did all of these Wendy. I was so addicted to it when my vision was better. Wish you could come see the actual pieces.
Ardy, you actually did the stitching on this? It's so beautiful up close and personal. It's a shame that the preview window doesn't do this justice at all.
It's really lovely seeing the pieces.
Thanks, Hanne. Now maybe I'll know the difference too. After talking about putting the whiskers on the wheat for so many years It'll be a challenge to change. LOL
As far as I can see, Ardy, yes, it must be barley!! I'm SO glad that so many could use the sweet old song!!
That was so sweet of you, Dagmar. But I love having my friends on the board even more than staying there myself. But I love that you thought to do that. I must admit I've done it myself once or twice. Thank you.
The last second before starting to solve I saw you hanging onto the board Ardy so I solved it very leisurely 2:21 and you are still hanging there. I loved all the flowers, grains and plants. Flowers and rural landscapes have always been among my favourite needleworks.
Thanks for quite a lot of fun in the morning and see you later. :))
Thanks, Pat. So nice of you to stop by. Hugs.
Love it makes for a beautiful puzzle thanks Ardy. Hugs
Yea. Thanks, Kirsten. I love having my favorites on my board too. And wonder of wonders - I'm still on it. :-)))
I popped another star on your board Ardy, 'cos I know you love a starry board. :))) And what fun your embroidery is. Beautiful needlework - and educational too! Thanks Ardy and Hanne!! :)))
Nor did I, Jan. I've never had much experience on a farm of any kind. Glad you are enjoying the embroidery. Thanks for coming by.
You are very welcome, Ank. Thanks for adding a star to the board. Jigidi is such an educational site, don't you think?
From your explanation, Hanne, do I assume this is barley? I just love how knowledgeable you are about so many things. I know your students must have learned so much more than just the curriculum!! Thank you.
I had no idea about the various grains, thanks, Hanne!
Ardy - this is another beauty that shows your hard work. thanks so much!!
And so you learn a bit every day. Thanks Hanne. Ardy this is an other beauty. And then knowing how difficult it was to see. Very good, thanks for showing.
Oh, I can imagine how difficult it has been. But Ardy, if you think that the grain with the long "hair" is wheat I'm sorry to tell you that it isn't so. We have such a wonderful song for children where you learn about the different species it says: wheat is proud, bald and thick, the oat-man's bells ring when he rocks, rye hasn't got as long and beautiful a "wig" as barley. Now, forgive me if you knew but you see how easy it is for Danish children to learn about it!! And I have learned it too!!
You're welcome, Barb. I'm just getting ready to go solve your morning puzzle.
Another fine work, Ardy. Thanks for sharing. :-)
Thanks, Hanne. I was ready to give up on the "wheat" back stitching. My friend, Helen, for whom I was making this wouldn't let me. We finally took graph paper outlined the wheat and she drew in where the outlining needed to go by following the pattern with a magnifying glass. With the pattern transferred to a larger size I could see it. But this was probably the hardest one I even did - and it was the first one!!! Thanks for your kind comments. Love to have you come by.
Ardy, this is a very beautiful bell pull, not only the different motives but the flowers and the species of grain are SO lovely too!! Thanks so very much!!
