My fiance and I have developed a recent interest in viking, nordic history and naturally runestones come along with that. I thought what a great idea if would be to embroider and frame a series of different stones from around scandanavia, so here is what I started:


and here is the picture I used for the design, I blew it up and just traced it onto some muslin (I thought it would look more rustic that way), I am really not sure what I am going to do with it when I am done, probably just frame it, or I am thinking a pillow.

It looks great, lovely work. Do you know, from where the stone is?

It is from Skråmsta, Uppland, Sweden and it says:
"Saxe had these memorials made in memory of Est, his fader, and Torgunn (in memory of) her son.

I love this!  My husband would kill for this.  I've been trying to avoid learning to embroider (I already have a billion WIPs and the craft room is overloaded so I promised the husband I'd clear out what I've got!) but this might convince us both to get me started.
