Now, that I finally caught up with most of my housework and am able to enjoy a rather clean home again, I am back at my computer again and ready to also catch up with the most recent progress of the 14th century XL hood project for my friends Pelican elevation.
Therefore I checked my last posting about the embroidery for the hood as well as the pictures on my tablet and found some photos concerning the surface couching embroidery for the appliqué border embellishment I haven’t posted yet.
Yes, I am finally back! Not only from the most recent SCA event – the Meridian Grand Tournament / MGT – but also back to normal life. Ok, I admit it, more or less normal due to mundane standards but at least what I would call normal… 😉
The last weeks and especially the last days before the Meridian Grand Tournament were really intense for me. I was absolutely determined to finish my 14th century hood project with the symbols for the honorable Orders of the Chivalry and the Pelican for my dear friends Pelican elevation and therefore spent nearly every waking hour embroidering.
During the last days I was searching for a new medieval pelican inspiration for my current embroidery project. Well, what shall I say – finding a new inspiration is often difficult enough but if you are looking for something special, it can appear to be even more challenging.
Fully aware of this fact, I gathered my favorite books about embroidery around me, sat down and went through my books in order to find a new medieval pelican inspiration for my current 14th century hood project for my friends pelican elevation.
And as I put the past days to very good use, I am very glad to say that all the hard work finally paid off! Yes, I achieved even more good progress and was even able to finish the appliqué work on the left side too.
Unfortunately a nasty head cold is slowing me down at the moment. But regardless how bad the head cold is making me feel, it couldn’t prevent me from accomplishing some good new progress concerning the appliqué work for the 14th century XL hood for my friends Pelican elevation. 😀
It took again several hours and a countless amount of small stitches but I just managed to apply the last patch to the right side of the hood. Now I can finally focus on the appliqué work for the second side – the left side.
