Embroidery Stamp

Embroidery Stamp

Our little B&B experiment is at the decorating stage. Some time ago in Kruja, Albanian, Lois and I bought this stamp – thinking it might work to pattern the wall.

During out last trip to Kruja – and fluent enought to discuss decorating, hand crafts, and old skills, we learnt that the carving was used to stamp tablecloths prior to embroidery stiching around the pattern.

Still I am thinking to try it on the walls.

Hangjik in Winter

I have been away from Runjeva for a year or more.  Why?  Well the real answer is: come and see!

The old house has been loved and mended.  Craftsmen with skills in stone and mud and lime came to visit – almost constantly – and now it is the end of winter.

One more month of work and our little experiment in rural tourism should be open!
