I don't know who made this or even how it's done, but it was so beautiful I had to pin it for you to see!

This is how I remember my Grandmother Azniv Vahide Aslanian did her Armenian embroidery, known as Aiyntabi kordz (Ayntab/Aintab embroidery) the Armenian women were experts in Aintab before the uprooting (during first genocide of the century - 1915 era)

So delicate!  Which is why I LOVE hardanger.

HARDANGER Requires lots of patience to complete a project like this.
