South African Journeys

In my small collection of embroideries
are these South African pieces.
Some simply record the local animals

Some record the local folklore.

Each one heavily stitched
by the women of South Africa.
All these pieces are from a dear friend, Valerie Hearder.
Valerie leads groups on trips to South Africa
where you would meet the women who make these
What a treat that would be.

  2. How beautifully bright and colourful!
