MacGordon's Doily: Stitched by Evelyn Gordon
Evelyn Gordon, a long-time member of the Saskatchewan Embroiderer’s Guild, made this doily. I think she did a fabulous job using scraps. Because she used bits and pieces of leftover hardanger material, I named it “MacGordon’s Doily.”

Evelyn joined SEG in the 1980s and she belonged to the Nimble Thimbles Guild at Cut Knife, which began in 1978. She was originally from Rockhaven, Saskatchewan, a smaller community near Cut Knife. Evelyn is no longer stitching but it's great that we have this reminder of her and her favourite type of needlework.


  1. This is a great idea for using up scraps. I really like some of the combinations and layout.

  2. What a lovely piece of hardanger! I love the variety of stitches and threads used.
