Progress on the Hanacky Kroj

My youngest daughter, Sarah, in her Hanacky kroj is pictured with her father, Ed Middlebrook. My husband has been recovering from surgery since before Christmas and we were so glad he was able to attend the meeting of our local chapter of the McLennan-Hill Czech Heritage Society on January 18, 2009.

Sarah happily shows off the embroidery on her Hanacky apron to Jana Vaculik. This costume is, by no means, complete. I still have to make the stiff, lace collar. I plan to make it detachable for convenience. I would also like to make a yellow skirt with yellow-on-yellow embroidery. Sarah also shows off the progress on the vest. So far, I have embroidered down the front of the vest.
