At the fair

It´s been the annual Sewing fair in Malmö and as usual I did not take many pictures and as ususal the South Swedish handicraftorganisation brought great things to show

Some of these are old and some new samples of south swedish wool embroidery, the stitches are stemstitch, chainstitch and the satin stitch is done so the "satin" is only on the outer part of the cloth, to save yarn.
Here´s my attemt to do this, a style that I like so much

Too cool. Love that reindeer in progress - especially his multi-colored body!
